The Dark Knight

I probably won't be catching this one at midnight, which would be appropriate, but I'm still excited to see it tomorrow. Some early buzz from John says "good, not great" and "Pretty much whatever you thought of "Batman Begins" is what you'll think of "The Dark Knight."

I consider that to be a pretty good feat, then. It's rare for a sequel to match the original feel and vibe of the original, so I'm hoping John is right. I enjoyed Batman Begins, primarily for its mood and realism. Plausibility heightens the sense of story and makes the bursts of action all the better when they happen.

I'll let you know what I think after seeing it.
