I'm a chicken when it comes to scary movies. A good mystery or story bigger than life is what's fun for me. Our nephew, Will, gave us the dvd's for "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight". We'd already seen (and loved) "Batman Begins", but it was Alex's dvd and he took it with him when he moved out.
We had NOT seen "The Dark Knight" yet. My kids and their cousins (including Will and his girlfriend, Rachel) went to see it opening night (at midnight) last summer during our 50th birthday party/reunion. They loved it, of course. We've watched "The Dark Knight" almost every evening since Christmas (and one night we had to have a double-feature with "Batman Begins" first).
