I was in the elevator and i heard this conversation
by a mid 30's lady with her mid 20's galpal.
They chitchatted bout a movie
that earned 300 million in 10 days
(440 million worldwide so far)
and possibly will break the 600 million titanic record
in film history.
lady A :

lady B :

lady A :

lady B : oh my god, i agree with you!
lady A :

"The haunting and visionary Dark Knight soars on the wings of untamed imagination. It's full of surprises you don't see coming. And just try to get it out of your dreams"
THE ROLLING STONES
"The Dark Knight is spectacular, visionary blockbuster entertainment: pretty much everything you could hope for and then some."
“The darkest. The meanest. The true cape-crusader. The Dark Knight is absolute”
