Movie Night #16

"16? When did you have #15?"

That was back in January, when I showed the whole Bourne trilogy back to back to back. It was magnificent.

This time, we're going with the biggest movie of 2008.


  • Synopsis: With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman has been making headway against local crime... until a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker unleashes a fresh reign of chaos across Gotham City. To stop this devious new menace — Batman's most personal and vicious enemy yet — he will have to use every high-tech weapon in his arsenal and confront everything he believes.
  • Dude, I've already seen this 4 times. So why not a 5th? Especially in glorious Blu-ray?
  • When: This Saturday (12/13) at 7:00PM.
