Just what you need, another Batman post...

I really enjoyed the Dark Knight. I saw it twice and would probably pay and see it again if I had the chance. Ironically enough, 3 of the 4 people I went to the see the movie with (first and second time) didn't like it, complaining it was too long, too far-fetched or too geared to the masses with the explosions and such. I completely disagree! I know Allison and I have the same idea.

There was something inherently different about this movie that seemed to speak to me; yes, Heath Ledger's performance was incredible, yes the plot was never dull but that is just the surface. Then, I found this article and immediately understood why I've been so drawn to the movie. The article talks about how Christopher Nolan uses two philosophy examples in both Batman Begins and the Dark Knight. If you are even mildly interested in philosophy and or Batman, this article is highly recommended.

P.S. The article contains spoilers.
