All Tired out by the Dark Knight

So I have a couple of things I've been meaning to write about, but tonight is just no going to be the night because I've just gotten home from the movies (after midnight! on a school night! Mom, I'm going to bed immediately, promise!). Erin, my other fabulous Asian friend (Lynne), some dude Erin hangs out with for his money, and I went to go see The Dark Knight. Now I wouldn't say its the best movie I've ever seen, but it was pretty damn good. I am usually hard to amuse when a movie is running over 2 hours, but I was entirely entertained through out the whole thing. In fact there's one point where you think the movie might wrap. So I glanced at my cell to see what time it is, and I was actually relieved to realize there was still another hour of the movie left! I don't think I have ever felt that way about a movie before.*

There were some aspects of the movie that I didn't think were as amazing as everyone said (cough Maggie Gyllenhaal cough). Not that these aspects were bad, but they weren't quite what I was hoping considering the buzz. There were a few other nit picky things here and there that I saw in the movie, but Christian Bale (and his few, glorious, shirtless scenes) makes up for any shortcomings I could point out. For all of you who are not really dying to see Christian Bale's ripped pecs, maybe those scenes would at least motivate you to hit the gym some more. You should definitely take something positive away from the sight of his bare chest.

In conclusion go see it, if you haven't yet. Although according to the numbers this movie is pulling in, you probably already have. So if you have seen it, maybe you get over to the gym now. Nobody's saying you have to be the next Batman, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to bring some more ripped pecs into the world.

*Except for when I got to the end of the first Lord of the Rings, and my brother explained that there were 2 more movies coming. God that trilogy just sucks you right in! I couldn't get enough of the little Frodo and his friend Samwise!

Haha, I finally read your post on this. I should send it to Dave. It's because he is "Old Money". You can't mix No Money with Old Money...
