I found Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull far more entertaining.

It was so exciting that I passed smooth out during the car transport scene and did not wake up until after the movie was over. OOPS.

I wonder if the next will be better.

I honestly can't remember a car transport scene in either movie.

The Joker attempts to ambush the police convoy carrying Dent, but Batman and Gordon intervene and capture him.

That is the transport scene that I was talking about

I almost fell asleep too. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen.

My husband based my reaction to the movie as to whether he watched it or not. He came in and saw me passed out and said,"Well I guess I won't waste my time on that movie".

As movies, I disliked both of them almost equally.

TDK had better eye candy (by which I mean the delectable Aaron Eckhart, as opposed to Shia Le Boeuf, whose annoying weaselface sets my teeth on edge) and was less outwardly risible a movie than KOTCS (I just yawned all the way through instead of laughing outright), but the fans had a much higher percentage of pretentious nitwits yammering about how you didn't "understand" the film if you should happen to express a dissenting opinion as to its alleged awesomeness.

At least the KOTCS fans are prepared to agree that, no, it wasn't the greatest thing ever, but they enjoyed it anyway, and we can all agree that there were some good things about it but a lot that could have been done better. The mad TDK fapping about how AMAZING and WONDERFUL and UNTOUCHABLY GOOD it was is still going on, even to this day, and I keep wondering if they saw a different movie to me? While I didn't like either movie much, the TDK fans are infinitely more annoying than the Indy ones.

The only thing I didn't "understand" about The Dark Knight was its inordinate runtime.

I agree. I could have sworn it was about twelve hours long.

You mean it was not 12 hours long?

That was me during the entire movie.

I for one, enjoyed The Dark Knight. The new Indiana Jones movie was entertaining, but I could not stand the character,Indiana's son. It was one of those movies where I checked out my brain, turned off my emotions and watched because I like Indiana. I thought there was just a little bit too much "tongue and cheek" comedy in this one. It seemed a little forced. TKotCS was light, entertaining fun, but I will not be purchasing the movie.

I think The Dark Knight hit me more on a intellectually reflective level. The action was good for your typical action movie, but the underlying "what ifs" got me. What if I was on a ferry boat and had to make that decision. What if I was on a ferry boat and had no say in the decision. Would I let other people see me as the bad guy, so that good could be done. Is taking the law into your own hands okay. There really are people out there that are evil just to be evil, how do you fight against them. What would it take for me to crack and become two-faced. I enjoyed the movie, I love the score, and I already own this movie, though it is wrapped in Christmas paper right now.
