Bat Dance

I'm not one to get overly excited about big summer blockbusters, nor do I freak out over comic books. I don't really like dark movies and I'm not a huge fan of action either.

So I have no idea what the new Batman movies have done to my brain because I am beside myself with excitement over the next installment "Dark Knight".

Perhaps it's my deep and abiding affection for Christian Bale that dates back to his "Newsies" glory. Maybe it's because if I were a boy I would get crushes on girls like Maggie Gyllenhaal. Maybe it's the new Batpod.

But I think the real draw for this movie is the Batman character himself. While I liked the Micheal Keaton Batman films just fine, Christian Bale did a much better job in "Batman Begins" of giving us a very conflicted hero. The kid saw his parent's murdered for crying out loud, he should be a little bit broken. His loneliness appeals to every bone in my stereotypical "let me take care of you!" body.

I have zero interest in seeing "I Am Legend" but apparently there is a killer trailer for "Dark Knight" in the previews so I just might have to fit in a matinee over the holidays.

For now, check out this one.

CHRISTIAN BALE!!!! CHRISTIAN BALE!!! CHRISTIAN BALE!!! I even went to see that super long Dieter Dengler movie just so that I could see CHRISTIAN BALE (and I also have a crush on Steve Zahn, if I had to choose who I would marry between Christian Bale and Steve Zahn, I would probably choose Steve Zahn because he would make me laugh).

I saw I Am Legend over the weekend and I must say, the Batman trailer was worth the price of admission. It looks incredible!!! Too bad we have to wait until the summer to see it. :(

My ex-wife looks just like Maggie Gillinhall. It creeps me out to watch movies with her in it since my wife was very abusive and abandoned me on our honeymoon.

Other than that, I do have a crush on her!
