You may have noted that last week’s review of “The Dark Knight Rises” lacked any mention of the tragedy in Aurora, Colo. This was not meant as a show of disrespect to the victims, but as recognition that regardless of its now-infamous status, Christopher Nolan’s concluding Batman film deserved to be discussed on its own merits, as a movie — not as the alleged trigger that set off a madman’s rampage.

Any discussion of the shooting and its implications for the film industry, I thought, should be reserved for another column. (And since “The Watch” is currently the lowest-rated wide release on Rotten Tomatoes, I suppose this is a prime opportunity.)
