The Dark Knight Rises

I'm a huge fan of the movie going experience in general.  In particular I have absolutley loved the Batman franchise, beginning with the first two movies Tim Burton directed  in the 80's  and 90's and the revived Nolan trilogy.  I don't often comment on world events but I regard films as the height of artistic expression.  I find it to be the perfect medium for storytelling and I'm really sickened by the events that happened nearly a week ago.  My heart goes out to all those affected by the tradgedy.
