labeling every act of violence as a "terrorist" act. Misuse of the word imo.
You are calling a nutcase shooting up people in a theater with no apparent goal other than to kill people the same as French resistance efforts and carpet bombing?
The Dark Knight Rises entered the record books about as quietly as a summer blockbuster can, its sweeping win at theaters this weekend overshadowed by the Aurora, Colo., massacre.
The third installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise took in $160.9 million, distributor Warner Bros. reported. The opening gave it the highest debut for a 2-D movie, edging out its predecessor, 2008's The Dark Knight, the previous record holder at $158 million. Rises also scored the third-highest opening weekend overall, behind this summer's The Avengers ($207.4 million) and last year's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 ($169.2 million).
It's sad that any act of violence is now a "terrorist" event. Someone who just shoots everyone up is not a terrorist.
