I feel like I have been going to the cinema a lot lately. In fact, I went to see The Dark Knight Rises only two days after I saw The Amazing Spider-Man. I’m such a superhero geek.
In my opinion, the new batman movie has to be the best superhero movie in recent years. It is undeniable that the success of the second instalment, The Dark Knight, partially relied on the hype surrounding the death of Heath Ledger, but it was truly a phenomenal movie nonetheless. The final sequel of the batman trilogy is even darker, grittier and more realistic than the previous two. What makes it stand out even more in the midst of other superhero movies is its twisted, mind-boggling storyline, which makes you want to watch it over and over again. With its star-studded cast, The Dark Knight Rises is definitely the ultimate magnet for moviegoers this season. The only disappointment for me though is lack of screen time for the catwoman.
Since last night, the dark knight movie, even the entire movie industry, has been grappled with deadly shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in movie theatre in Aurora, Denver, Colorado. It’s extremely disheartening to realise that a movie such as The Dark Knight Rises is actually a depiction of the real world we are living in. The way that the kids today interpret and remember this event will have a much more notable impact as they grow, and it can be either way. For that reason, part of me wishes to see Christian Bale in a batman suit visiting schools and telling the children that everything is going to be okay.
My heart goes out to all the victims and their families and friends.
