^I'll agree that I didn't think it was as dark as I'd been led to believe either. But that didn't detract from it for me.
We saw it again this past weekend, and though it wasn't quite as intense the second time through (we knew everything that was going to happen, and that makes a huge difference), it still was great. I noticed a bunch of little things the second time around that I hadn't before. The movie just rocks - it's the movie I've been waiting for for such a long time. I think my favorite part was the big chase scene in the middle - quite possibly my favorite chase scene of any movie. I loved how the Tumbler turned into the Batpod - that was sweet!
Anyways, I loved it just as much the second time and I'm even thinking about going one more time - I just liked it that much.

We watched Kung Fu Panda when we were at the GWL over Labor Day weekend - I gotta say that movie was a lot of fun! I think I enjoyed it better than Wall-E, even though I still liked that one. Kung Fu Panda was just a fun show - very enjoyable the entire way through.
I should also mention that last weekend we saw Dark Knight at the IMAX theater. It'd been forever since I'd been in one of those - it was awesome! I only wish the entire film had been done with IMAX cameras - only parts of it used the full screen. It was very cool, though. I hope more movies do this in the future, it really added to the experience. Only problem was that there were a bunch of 9 year old boys behind us that were talking really loudly throughout the show and it was extremely distracting. I've sat through movies with kids talking before, but it's never been a problem for me. These kids literally were acting like no one else was in the theater but them! Thankfully the parents quieted them down about halfway through, but still - pretty ridiculous if you ask me!
Well, I've seen two new movies since my last post in this thread -here's my take:
Twilight - never read the book, but my wife really wanted to see this so I agreed. I really liked the story - it was really interesting and I never felt bored by it. However, as everyone else is saying, the low-budget factor really spoiled what could have been an awesome movie. The acting was really crummy and the special effects could have used a lot of work. Other than that, it actually felt kind of like a super-hero movie in a lot of ways - for the first part of the movie you're learning all about the good guy and all his powers, etc. Then a villian is introduced who puts the hero's love interest in jeapordy and the hero must save her in the end, blah blah blah...I wouldn't recommend seeing it in theaters, but it might not be a bad rental. Just don't expect the visuals to be all that stunning. (we've really been spoiled!)
Bolt - Great movie - I'd say my favorite Disney cartoon since Emperor's New Groove (aside from Meet the Robinsons - I liked that one a lot too). Definitely see Bolt in 3D if there's a theater in your area that has that - it was awesome! Great story, wonderful characters, and fantastic animation. This was my first 3D movie (aside from stuff in theme parks) and I'll be planning to see more! I'm really disappointed that Bolt hasn't done that well -it's such a great movie that I'm really surprised that so many people haven't even heard of it yet.
Anyways, has anyone else seen either of these? Thoughts?
It's been a while since anyone's posted on this thread, but I gotta say - I saw "Inception" a couple days ago, and that could be one of the best movies I've seen in years. The more I think about it, the more I love it - great characters, AWESOME story and concept, exciting, intense...and a SWEET ending. The kind of ending that just makes it impossible to stop thinking about the movie after it ends. Couldn't ask for much more in a movie.
Anyone else see it?

^ Haven't seen it yet but everyone I've talked to so far who has seen it says pretty much the same thing your saying about it. Maybe this weekend.
I've been streaming a ton of movies lately from Netflix. Mostly older movies I either haven't yet seen or haven't seen in a very long time. Watched The Godfather Part II the other night and forgot how completely amazing that movie is. Easily in my personal top ten.
