Batman

Well, I finally made it to see the Dark Knight. I have to tell you it was wild to watch scene after scene filmed at my building (where I am employed). I walked through the bookcase elevator (that really wasn't an elevator). I was in the boardroom with the sound guy going over how we (the building) could shut off air while scenes were shot. I saw the lobby scene being shot where the DA turned himself in claiming to be Batman. I ate lunch a couple tables away from Christian Bale and Morgan Freeman. I don't claim to have done anything exciting, but I was there and had very minor involvment.

Do I recommend the movie -- not for younger kids.

Questions asked by the Joker such as "Why so serious?" and "would you like to see this pencil disappear?" (or something close to that), were quite dark humor in context.

It was just really exciting to finally see it.

I can't wait to see it! I thought I was the only person on the planet who hadn't seen it yet.

Cool, Jim!

I haven't seen it either, folks :) Then, again, it's probably one I'll see on DVD.
