Mr. Quasi-intellectual critic, could you kindly take a step back, relax, and smell the daisies?

The word film is the most common way of referring to a motion picture in Great Britain. English you know?

Not to nitpick, but the film in question was shot in anamorphic 35mm and the scenes which were shot in IMAX were on 15/70mm.

That out of the way, yes. It was too long. Smile

I rather disagree. I thought Ledger was absolutely amazing, but the movie was perfectly fine in the parts without him. 
I didn't even feel like it was too long. For the plot they had, the length was fitting.

Probably just different tastes, but my only qualm with Dark Knight were the fight scenes (how batman never gets shot, even though he has plenty of time to get shot..), but that's a function of the super hero and you have to suspend reality for that.

Well, if we are going to argue semantics, when you see a movie, you don't watch a film. That's what I am saying. So watching a "film" is still incorrect. You are watching a digital replication, be a DVD, or even when you're at the movie theater, it's a digital projector.

"film" is used in many countries, even non-English, like mine.

A little thing called the dictionary would disagree with you. From definition 2 under film (noun)

a motion picture; a movie.

What I meant is, on a technical/literal level, you don't watch movies on film. So personally, I feel like that term is outdated, just like "dialing" a phone no longer makes sense, and people no longer watch "the tube". And in my specific area, it just sounds weird to say film instead of movies.

But we are not all from the same place, so i'll just strap on a helmet.

If you really want to be technical/literal, then half of English words don't make sense because they don't mean exactly the same thing as the words they come from in other languages (eg. latin). It's a good thing we're not literal creatures.

On-topic: I can see double the grayness in this movie. Superman gray + Batman gray = black screen. Someone make a comic panel/mele with it plz.
I hope they tone it down a bit. Not every scene has to be dark.
