Why if it were just another movie? How does others' enjoyment become detrimental to your interest in a given film?

Also:

I would love to go to one of those screenings, since the movie's B.A., but I don't want the "virgin" treatment. Cyclical logic, I know.

And I think your friend hit the points I've been trying to get myself to type. I wanted a lot more Dent/Joker, and a lot less Batman (even less Rachel. ...UGH Maggie Gyllenhaal)
Great point on your first part... but not the second. I'll love you the same anyway.

just my two cents anyway.
Hey, why make sense?

Glyenhaal = appalling in this film. That or just overshadowed by everyone else.

In fact, I'm glad the character got killed off. She was just there as a token effort to having a female lead in both films, IMO.

I'm just sick of hearing about the damn thing.

God, I wouldn't have even said anything if you guys were going to get so damn flustered about it. The other conversation strands seemed to have died due to TDK discussion coming to dominate the thread and I was bored, so why sit around looking bored? I was actually going for a very dry humour with "Fuck Batman" + train.

Thanks. I've been drawing as long as I can remember. Actually, I was drawing before I can even remember. I apparently drew a baby girl hatching out of an egg on my mother's bedroom wall when I was a toddler, but I have no memory of it (and I'm amazed that at that young, I understood the concept of birth, sort of)

When I went for the first time, the show was actually running late, and in order to speed things up, they just picked one guy to represent all the virgins, and did the treatment to him. So I lucked out.

Of course, you could also either pretend you're not a virgin, or go there with friends who haven't seen it either, so at least you won't be alone.

Haha, cool. Apparently I was a very good drawer when I was little. My earliest school report cards all mention that I'm a great artist. But it wasn't really properly encouraged and by the time I was 10, I was drawing exactly how I was when I was 6, and by that point my skills had fallen behind the pack. Ah well. I took to writing instead. And, it seems, postwhoring.

We wouldn't be having this conversation right now had you not been oversensitive to the opinions of others to begin with.

But hey, I guess discussing the finer points of nothing like they do in the Bar is considerably more enjoyable than Batman.
