let it all hang out

L. and I went to see The Dark Knight last night. It was good, though I thought it was too long and too convoluted. (I think most movies are about twenty minutes too long, though.) I liked it quite a bit, but I honestly have to say I liked Iron Man a whole lot more. One of the things that really resonated with me in Iron Man is Tony’s joy at what he creates, at what the suit can do, and what he can do in it. And there is no joy in Batman. It’s just a completely different ethos. Possibly why I tend towards Marvel heroes rather than DC? I don’t know.

Anyway. In detail. spoilers for The Dark Knight
