We got to see The Dark Knight last night (thanks to the I was left pretty much speechless after watching it and am still putting it all together in my head today. DC and Marvel have both raised the bar - Iron Man comes in a very close second - but for now Christopher Nolan is the man on the top.

Nice to see so many bloggers last night too. The post mortem afterward was, nearly, as much fun as the movie.

Off to learn some magic pencil tricks…

    I really, really hated Nolan’s first Batman effort so can’t see myself going to this - but people’s enthusiasm for it is almost winning me over…

    Hi Fústar - ’tis worth a watching before you make up your mind…

    You’ll have to elaborate on hating the Batman Begins! (Bar the annoying growly voice of Batman - which is even worse in Dark Knight)

    I really enjoyed the post mortem. I hated leaving - I can’t believe it got so late so quickly.

    We’ll have to pick up the conversation very soon.

    @ Darren - indeed we will :)

    @ Sinéad - I saw you looking for your seat, stood up and shouted (with a less than gracious high pitched tone) but sat down again because I was half a cinema away and you were never going to hear me…
