Steve Leader and I took the time on Thursday to make a rare escape from news and go see the new Batman movie "The Dark Knight." First of all, let me say, I'm a huge fan of Director Christopher Nolan, the lead actor Christian Bale, and the supporting cast including Michael Caine (great actor), Anne Hathaway (scene stealer) and Gary Oldman (consistently good). Having said that, I thought the movie was almost too much. It was fatiguing. It was incredibly dark and intense. I admit, I may be a little sensitive since the Colorado shootings but I certainly wasn't nervous in THIS theater because Steve and I were the only ones in there. I was fatigued solely by the plot. I thought I'd attach this article by Peggy Noonan if nothing else to spark some discussion. I'd love to hear what you think about movies these days and how they impact us all.
PS. No death threats. I love Batman.
