No One Is Ever Pleased

I should have known it was coming. At the showing I attended of "The Dark Knight" on opening weekend two gentlemen (probably so-called "fanboys") who were sitting a row in front of me mocked Christian Bale's "Batman Voice" as the closing credits rolled. By mocking it I mean they spoke in a tone best described as a profoundly deep growl. And I vividly remember wanting to tap these two idiots on the shoulder and say, "Yeah, and if he hadn't changed his voice so dramatically you'd be sitting here bitching about how he hadn't changed his voice so dramatically and so why couldn't anyone tell he was Bruce Wayne?"

Lo and behold, this very topic has apparently become an issue.

People will always find something about which they can whine.
