The Dark Knight

It is supposed to get up to 102 today and our house can't seem to stay cool when it's that hot outside, so we went to see the new Batman flick today. The kids went to Grandma's house.

We went to a matinee and the movie theater wasn't very full at all, but there was a family there with 2 boys, probably around Ethan and Julia's age. Now I know that there are lots of fun new Batman toys in the stores, and many kids will probably really want to see the movie as a result. But I'll just say that my kids will not be seeing this movie!!! I kept looking over at the kids, worried that they would be so traumatized by seeing such a violent and scary movie. Don't get me wrong, the movie was very well done and I did enjoy it overall (Heath Ledger really deserves all the hype for being an extremely disturbing Joker), but it's definitely not for kids. So do me a favor and leave the kids at home for this one.

Thanks for the heads-up, Rosie! It's always nice to know these things ahead of time!

I agree, definitely not for kids. But such a great show!
