The Dark Knight Rises

Our family has been anxiously awaiting the new Batman movie for lots of reasons. First, we pretty much see all Superhero movies as soon as they are released. Second, it is a huge Blockbuster. Finally, my husband was an extra during filming! He and his brother worked two days last summer to film the stadium scene in our hometown, Pittsburgh.
The movie did not disappoint (but no sign of my husband or his brother :( ). Of course Christian Bale was not a disappointment either. Anne Hathaway was really good too.
On another note, I spent a lot of time watching the exits and scanning the theater. Christopher Nolan, the director of the movie, shares a statement on the website that expresses how most if us feel. The movie theater is a place where we can get lost in a story, forget life for a bit, and this man in CO took that away from us. It will be a long time before I will feel safe in a public setting. I'm so sad for the victims and pray for their families.
