movie review

I am going to start this entry
by saying:
I realize i am in the minority in what I am about to say.
I know you will think i am WRONG
maybe even FrEaKish.
but i must go on the record as saying
{and again i will state i know i am one of the few}
I HATED
(yes, that is with a capitol H)
I mean really HATED
Batman.
Oh, the relief i feel
finally getting that off my chest.
The majority of the time that i was watching the movie
my conscious kept telling me to leave
and did i listen--NO.
Do i wish i had--YES.
I just felt like it sucked the light out of me.
It left me feeling depressed
about the real evil that is present in the world.
It was NOT cartoon-ish to me
and i felt such sorrow for Heath Ledger
and the role he played
and how he died.
While a few of my children have seen it
the remainder will not.
Call me a mean mom
but i am going with my conscious on this one.

ok you have to tell me a little more about the reasons why you hated it. i have yet to see it but like you when i am watching a movie and i don't feel good about it i have a hard time leaving. so if you could tell me a little more then maybe i can avoid having to leave at all. although my husband will kill me if i don't let him see it cause he is dying to see it and he doesn't understand those kinds of things but anyways let me know.

Wow, I totally agree!!!! I was really surprised that I had so many friends highly recommend it. I did not enjoy it at all.

Have you forgotten what we all have computers for? It is so we can google and find out ANYTHING we want to know. I googled your song and this is what I got.

I'm sure that is more than you wanted, but now you can sing it for the ENTIRE bus trip.
Aren't you excited??? When I was on my mission we took a huge van to watch general conference and there was a sister that sang this song all the way there. It was entertaining the first one or two times.
