Batman The Dark Knight, Movie Night

Last night was movie night, for my husband and I. We get to do this about once a month, and he picked the new Batman movie. First of all let me say it was rated PG13 and that rating is fitting. My 8 yr old, wanted to watch it. I knew from previews, it was darker than previous Batman movies, so I told him I would let him know after I watched it. I decided no, it had a very complicated story line, and was a little more violent than others. He was disappointed, but I think it was the correct choice. Now back to the movie. Batman Begins was, and still is my favorite movie of the series. The Dark Knight, was extremely long, one thing that is a negative for me. It could have ended at least 45 min earlier, if they just ended it with Harvey in the hospital, to be Two Face in the next movie. However they chose not to do that, and Harvey was instead saved by Batman, and Commissioner Gordon. They chose to make him the Hero, and make Batman out to be the Villian. While I really liked this ending, it was well written, and very touching, I still think it could have been a little shorter. The length is my only complaint. Heath Ledger was amazing, as the Joker, and I can see why he was nominated for an Oscar. Matter of fact, the whole cast was very good. Have you seen this movie, yet. If yes, what did you think of it? If no, what are you waiting for?

I have not seen the movie Melissa, before I planned on seeing it, but after reading the reviews, I chickened out on watching it. I have a history of not being able to sleep for days if there is too much negativity in the story :(

I think with the ending being as well done as it was, you would probably feel good not bad. I hope you get to see it.
