How did I end up watching this movie?

I was getting together with a friend from law school who suggested we see it.  Even though I felt afraid, I agreed to see the movie because it was supposed to be amazing.

Which character did I like best in the movie?

Alfred, the Butler was my favorite character.  He had a quiet charm about him which made me feel safe every time he was on the screen.

What was my favorite quote from the movie?

I cannot remember a specific quote, but I loved the scene where Batman manuevers his bike to take the Joker's truck.

What will stick with me from the movie?

The image of Dent's face after it is burned.  That shit is REALLY DISTURBING!

If I could change one thing about the movie, what would it be?

I wanted Rachel to be more kick ass. Instead, I felt like she was glorified eye candy.

Who would enjoy this movie?

Fans of the comic book and those who like action movies.  If you enjoy being tense and on the edge for your seat for the entire 2.5 hours, then you would enjoy it as well.

Which screen is this movie best viewed on?

Big screen.

Other comments?

I ended up seeing the screening with the on screen captions.  The audience had a lot of hearing impaired people who did not scream or jump as much as me.  I appreciated that I did not have to worry about ruining the experience for other audience members by my antics.  Although, at one point, my friend turned to me and said, "Stop it! You are freaking me out!"
