Oh Yes We Did...

I'm not gonna lie. I love Batman movies. A lot.


I wonder if I'm the only Pastor's wife to blog about The Dark Knight...likely...anyways...


A couple weeks ago I finally saw Batman Begins, in anticipation of seeing the latest The Dark Knight (for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, I apologize, you are obviously not as big of a dork as me.)


Around here, we do not get to the movie theatre very often. But my little bro saved the day and volunteered to come over and watch (play video games with) his nephews last night so we could go.


We ended up having to go to the 9:30 PM show...I KNOW, NINE THIRTY!


Here's what I learned:
  • Apparently the late show is when ALL the college kids go to the movies. We were the oldest people there.
  • I am not a college kid.
  • Most of them were seeing the movie for the 2nd or 3rd time (yes, it is in fact THAT good!)
  • I couldn't stop thinking about how MUCH getting into the movie cost!! And in my head, I sounded like my grandma when I was little, she would always go on and on about how much my GUESS T-shirts cost and how absurd it was to pay that much to wear their logo across my chest...
  • The movie was 2 1/2 hours of sheer entertainment, I wish I could go see it again...today...except this time, I would not drink the $5 gallon-size Diet Pepsi and need to pee the whole movie but couldn't go because I would MISS something...seriously, it's that good.
  • I didn't notice any naughty words in the movie. Violence: of course, but really an excellent depiction of the depravity of man in its natural state. It's obviously not for everyone. It's PG-13...however my kids will not be seeing this one until they're 18...ok, maybe 16 :)
  • When we came out of the movie, the parking lot was still full...guess who was the owner of the ONLY mini-van in the parking lot?!? Yep. We are THAT cool.
  • Rumor has it there will be more Batman movies...can't see how they could top this one...but it makes me giddy none the less *smiles*
  • Who knew?!?! ...that's what you're thinking...I know.
