If you haven't seen it yet, go. Run, if you must but I suggest seeing it.
What am I referring to? Batman Begins.
I've been wanting to see this movie since Christian Bale was cast in the role of Bruce Wayne. Honestly, I wanted to see it because, duh, it's Christian Bale. However, seeing it today, I can say that it's on top of my list to buy as soon as it comes out on video. Seriously, even if I have to give up my coffee money for it (and that is a biggie). Christopher Nolan (Memento) did it justice. I was disappointed when Darren Aronofsky dropped out of the project, but then, I liked how this one went. At 2 hours 10 minutes, the movie didn't drag nor was it too fast paced. Loved it. LOVED IT.
I'm not going to ruin the story for any and all of you who want to see it. However, I want to pose 3 things that we need to discuss as soon as you've seen the film:
(1) The Office Space reference: Didn't you get the memo?
(2) Liam Neeson holding a sword and thinking "Don't mess with a Jedi Master"
(3) Cillian Murphy and Tom Wilkinson vs. their movies 28 Days Later and The Full Monty
Do you think I can convince the in-laws to watch Batman again rather than watching Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan? Hmm, I can dream, right?
Anyway, if I won't be able to keep in touch, Happy Father's Day to you (if you're a dad) and yours.
