That was the best movie I've seen in ages. It was also the first in a looooong time where my parents and I all agreed that the movie was fantastic.
They finally got it right.
and aaaaah I love Bale's Batman so hard. He captures the character so beautifully and it makes me feel guilty for never reading much of the comic. (I think I read "The Killing Joke" and that's it.)
And the villains. AAAAAAAH
Okay, now that I've got that behind me: the plot was so-so, but I think it needed to be; anything more complex would have gotten crumpled up beneath the weight of setting up the characters. Which they did perfectly.
I want the next one SO BAD. So very, very bad.
