When we got up Friday morning and heard the news of what happened in Aurora, Colorado, there was little debate about where we were going. We decided we would go see Batman. Partly because we wanted to see the movie, but also as our way of showing we were not going to allow sick individuals to confine and constrain us and have us live in fear. I and my family are Christians. We believe in a life after death. For me, there is no fear in dying itself, though I can fear some of the horrible ways that would lead to death. But you decide that fear will not rule you, and you teach your children that by example. So we went to Batman on Friday morning. We enjoyed it. And we knew that what happened in Colorado was such a random thing, there is almost no way to prepare for it or see it coming. We will remember the families and the victims- living and dead, and we will question why this happened, and maybe we will be better prepared for this by having more of our affairs in order. And life goes on. Director Christopher Nolan's statement sums up things pretty accurately, "Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families."

The sets are mainly in concrete and dirt and rubble. It is dark, but not in a way that seeing the action and who is on the screen is difficult (I hate movies like that!) so kudos to Christopher Nolan and his cinematographers for doing such a fine job of shooting this film! It's not a perfect film, but the things that aren't perfect or great don't take away from the enjoyment of this movie. If you are a movie goer, see this film. Do it because you like well-made movies. Do it to let others know not to live their lives in fear.
