Jake and I finally got a chance to go out and celebrate our 9th anniversary last night. After dinner at one of our favorite restaurants (Italianissimo), we finally saw The Dark Knight. It was great, as all the reviews had said. Something happened after the show that I just don’t understand. It has happened many other times at movies I have seen, and still can’t quite figure out why it happens. Here is what is was: People clapped. Yep, that’s right. After the show was over and the credits rolled, people were clapping. Why? Will someone explain this to me? I certainly didn’t see Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale, nor Michael Caine. Although, perhaps Heath heard it from some far off place (we miss you buddy). As far as I know, no one from the movie was there to receive that kind of praise/recognition. So, why do people do it? Note: No offense to any of you post-movie clappers out there.
