The Dark Knight Rises is Excellent

This movie made me think, in a good way of course. It was one of those films that I thought about for hours after leaving the theater, and I actually preferred this one more so than the second film. Just the story mostly, and I love Anne Hathaway's Catwoman. I was surprised because a lot of people were complaining about her and the costume. I had no issues with it, and thought she did a great job. I always love her, and she brought her usual sophistication to the character. All though those heels were a bit much. Especially since I'm stilling dealing with heel-induced broken toes. I can't see how she gets around in something like that. Some dude must have insisted that she wear them. I did however think it was clever how when her mask flipped up it created little ear silhouettes. That was fun, but not too unrealistic.

Also, did you catch that Batman drinks green juice! Oh yes, I saw that and it made me happy. Well, he must take good care of himself to be fit like that, and isn't Christian Bale a vegetarian in real life? So drink your kale juice kids. Batman does it and so does Claudia.

Lastly, I had a hard time keeping the Aurora shooting out of my mind. As I sat there in the dark, I just imagined what it was like for those poor people. I found myself thinking about it multiple times, and that was one of the reasons it took me so long to go to see this film. The tragedy put a damper on it, and of course my heart goes out to all of the people affected by it.

Happy movie watching!
