I just got home moments ago from seeing the new Batman film, The Dark Knight. I'm not a professional film critic by any means, so I'm not going to try to wax poetic about the cinematography or directing or Heath Ledger's brilliant performance as the Joker. I only need to tell you one fact to convince you that The Dark Knight is a great movie.
I saw this filming at 10pm on opening night, having secured tickets earlier in the day. The theater was full of teenagers; teenagers, the scourge of adult film goers. Not one of them uttered an unnecessary word during the entirety of this movie. There were no stupid comments yelled at the screen, no incessant babbling during quiet moments, and most amazingly, ALL CELL PHONES WERE SET TO THE 'SILENT' MODE!
Someone finally found a way to make today's teenager shut up at the cinemas: Make a film as good as The Dark Knight.
