    Batman: The Dark Knight

    It is a good movie. I recommend you to see it. To bad Heath died, I would have liked to of seen him in another sequel. Do not believe the hype though. Believing the hype is a one way ticket to disapointment. I wish Katie Holmes was in it though. Not for her acting ability. There is one...

    Conservativeness vs Liberalness arguments of the past
