I just got home from watching the Dark Knight Rises. My husband went ahead and purchased 2 tickets yesterday as a surprise although I wasnt really too keen on seeing it. He knew I was dying to watch it since last month but the turn of events yesterday made me change my mind.
Not that I suddenly lost interest because of reviews I read. The truth is, after watching it today I couldn’t stop but thank my husband profusely for getting us those tickets. It was a great film! The whole 2 and a half hour was worth it, and i had to hold my bladder too for that long because I just didn’t want to miss a scene. After the movie was over, i didn’t even wait for the credits to roll, I saw Christopher Nolan’s name and I bolted out of the door running to the restroom. I’m glad I did because by the time I was finished using the loo, the line to the women’s restroom was almost as long as it was when we were getting ready to get in the theater.
I had fun watching Batman although I still couldn’t keep my mind off of what happened in Colorado yesterday. You would think that the tragic incident would make people change their mind and put off watching the movie for a couple of weeks. It didnt seem that way though. Surprisingly people still lined up at the moviehouse like tickets were free. The line was very long at Regal Cinema by Union Square. We showed up there an hour in advance but the line was already by the wall across the entrance. That was aside from the long line streaming from the main entrance of the movie house. You can hear people cursing as they reluctantly fell in line behind us.
When it was time for us to go inside the theater, me and my hubby were fortunate to secure 2 seats by the door on the last row. The truth is we were also eyeing for a spot where it was closest to the door..you know just in case.. although i was dying to watch Batman, Im not ready to die yet over it. Im a real paranoid and another stunt where someone goes Batshit crazy in a Batman screening just cant sit well with me.
i dont know why things like that happen in this country. totally senseless killing, by a man who has a degree! No evil in the movie can outdo the evil that is James Holmes. Currently probably the most hated man in America.
My heart goes out to the poor victims by this atrocious act.
As for Batman, how I wish there was a real life version especially in a crisis such as what happened yesterday..
