    OMG! ‘The Dark Knight’ made me fall in love with BatMan all over again. I think Christian Bale was the best (besides Michael Keaton). I remember when me and my boys went to go see it, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the film. I was the ‘Donkey Kong’ and ‘Centipede’ master (early 80’s lol). My hubby LOVES ‘Shark Week’ I’ve yet to understand that lol. Great post! Brought back good memories…
