The Dark Knight

So I went to see the new Batman movie yesterday afternoon, and I was at the matinee at the local one screener ($5 tickets!) and they had some kind of a problem with the projection and it started a bit late. Some poor lady came in towards the end of the previews and was clearly looking desperately for her date and couldn't find him. Finally somebody in the audience yelled "It's OK, it's still the previews, call out to him!" She looked mortified but finally shouted "Hey, Jim!" Interestingly two people yelled "I'm over here!". There's a joker in ever crowd.

Speaking of which, it's a good film. It has some flaws but there are some very nicely done bits as well, and the whole thing basically works. And it's not often you see a Prisoner's Dilemma set up so nicely in a film.
