Usually, I use this opening space as a way to hook the reader into clicking the LJ cut, sometimes using misleading statements to do so. Not this time. Instead, here's everything I can say about this movie that isn't a spoiler: awesome. The best Batman movie ever. Finally. I've already seen it twice (once on an I-MAX screen). 5 out of 5 stars.

Top 5 Detroit Pistons

I'm one of the bad boys of Top Five Reviews...Luckily, the Detroit Pistons forced a game seven last night to make this list still relevant. I'm not sure if I would've still done it had they lost. The Pistons are one of the oldest franchises in NBA history, founded in 1941 as the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons in the now defunct- National Basketball League, named after their owner Fred Zollner (they dropped the Zollner part in 1948). They moved to Detroit in 1957, but wouldn't taste ultimate success (other than two NBL titles in 1944 and 45) until 1989, where they followed their runner-up season in 1988 with two-back-to-back titles with the "Bad Boys". After a rebuilding period, the team returned to prominence in the new millennium, winning the championship in 2004, looking to repeat this year.
