There is non-stop coverage in the media about the shooting at the Batman premiere, with an obsession with the answer to "why" this would happen. The answer is easy: To get non-stop coverage in the media.

I personally don't get the hype about this movie.. The last batman movie was good, not great, but I think Heath Ledger's acting propelled it to another level.. Had he not died I doubt it would have been half as popular as it turned out to be.

So what is the hook for this movie? I don't really see a reason to see if before its out on DVD/Bluray unless your a die hard movie goer.

As for "the hook" for this movie... it's the last of a 3-part-trilogy. The next Batman movie is going to be a reboot. So, it would be nice to see how this trilogy ends. Plus: Anne Hatheway in a cat suit... can't complain about seeing that sooner than later


I wasn't a huge fan of the last movie either... it was GOOD but not my favorite.

As much drama as the whole Dent / TwoFace thing added, it just seemed to drag the movie on an unnecessary 20-30 minutes at the end. The Joker should have been enough and they could have added a final scene where Harvey goes mad when he/we see his face for the first time. The bits prior to that were good though (prior to the accident).


I'm not a huge fan of theaters anymore either and would rather watch on my TV + BluRay/iTunes. In case you haven't guessed from my posts since Friday... babies crying in the theater is a real anger-trigger for me. Add in the sick people, talkers, cellphones, etc and I REALLY have to want to see that movie NOW to visit the theater.

That being said, I've noticed people handling the cellphone/talking/seat-kicking thing a lot better. The last time talking was a problem for me was "Inception" and that was due to an old couple. And cellphones have been surprisingly better over the last year.

But people fighting back the Flu or something and deciding they want to infect 100+ people because they can't wait a week to see a movie... I sill experience that.
