It's called gotham_land and it's probably gonna fail since I probably have no idea how to run one, but I'm a masochist so I'm gonna give it a whirl.

So a fellow Christian left this review:

Negative—I can not help to think that darkness begets darkness. The second film of this trilogy was related to the death of Heath Ledger, and this one is related to the death of 13 people in a cinema. Just a coincidence? I do not think so, the Lord is very clear, if your eye is evil… whatever you behold, etc.
My Ratings: Moral rating: none / Moviemaking quality: none

Here's the link to the site:

Now I do follow the site to keep track of what films might be bad morally and I like how they have a moral rating and moviemaking rating, but from now on I think I'm just gonna look up the ratings and not read the comments.

I am sick and tired of being judged and guilt tripped. For being told the things that drive me to be good or bring me joy are ungodly. I do a good job of doing this to myself.

I've never felt Christopher Nolan glorified violence and I say this as someone who highly believes there is too much violence, gore, and corruption in movies/tv/ and especially video games today. It's sad that Nolan seems to be getting the brunt of this when I can think of several other famous directors that glorify violence & seem to want people to idolize villains.

My prayers go out to the victims, survivors, and families in Colorado. It will be easy to blame the movie with it's violence but honestly that just an easy mark. What I take from Nolan's trilogy is how we must always believe in what's good and right in the face of great tragedy and evil. We must not cower and judge in the aftermath of such terror. It is our actions that defines us and the shooter's actions were sadistic and cowardly. He will no doubt twist and use such great films as to why he did such things but honestly if your personal hero is the Joker than there was a crap loads of issues with you before such films were made. He is what is scary and a threat to society, not Mr. Nolan's trilogy.
