"I'm Batman!"

Yeah, the new Batman movie pretty much just re-set the standard for super-hero movies. Some of you (a-hem) mock me for my interest in and appreciation for super-hero movies. I loved both X-Men movies as well as both Spider-Man movies. I haven't yet seen Hulk (sorry Ragan, Eric) or Cat Woman. I feel bad about Hulk, but why in the world would I want to see what was called "worst movie of the year"? The first 2 X-Men were phenomenal, setting a movie precedent that others had to keep up with. Both Spider-Man movies were great, although in both of them I found a little bit of the "cheese" unnecessary and therefore found just a tad bit of taint in otherwise wonderful films. But Batman . . . oh goodness gracious. This movie was just downright awesome! It is a great super-hero action flick, of course, but the plot, storyline, acting, effects . . . it is an overall, well done film! Dark, violent, SCAREY!, and even quite emotional at times. It's a beginnings movie, hence Batman Begins, so the first half doesn't even have Batman in it. Rather, it's the story of how Bruce Wayne became Batman, a story that makes everything else fall into place and helps you appreciate the story and creativity of the original creators of the super-hero. Great movie, go see it, even if you don't like super-heroes. But if you don't like super-heroes, perhaps you should consider Aunt May's insight, "Everyone needs a super-hero."
That's all for now, if you've seen it, let me know how you liked it. Addison liked it, and he's terrified of super-heroes. He has superherophobia, but now that he hangs around me he's starting to warm up to us, er um, I mean them.
