Check out the Riddler costume I received for review on my dad blog. My son picked it out from the Wholesale Costume Club website. Apparently, he wants to be a villain next Halloween. As you can probably guess, Halloween is big at our house. In fact, a costume wouldn’t be consider a bad gift for Christmas in our family. I know, we’re weird. BTW, the costume is available in both medium and large sizes. The regular price for the item at Wholesale Costume Club is $28.98 ($26.96 for members).
Have you figured out what costume you or your kids will be wearing for Halloween? If you’re thinking about a Batman costume, then you should check out Wholesale Costume Club’s new for 2012 Dark Knight costumes. The Halloween costume company sent me a Batman costume for review on my dad blog. I love it and think it’s awesome. I plan on wearing the new Dark Knight costume when I take the kids trick-or-treating on Halloween night. I think I’m going to be a big hit around the neighborhood.

Batman: The Dark Knight Rises (Warner Bros.) opens in theaters today. Below is a quick summary of the film. Continue reading for the full movie review of The Dark Knight Rises.
The 411 for Batman: The Dark Knight Rises
||Batman returns to Gotham after eight years of retirement
|Appropriateness for children
||It’s OK for children, but there are some profanity, intense action scenes, and implied sex
- Great hero story
- Surprising revelations caught me off guard
- Nice special effects
- It’s stunning in IMAX (no 3D as far as I know)
- Batman is missing in most of the scenes
- The villain is a little hard to understand at times
||July 20, 2012
||Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language
