Three Things: Ironman, Batman, and the Beach
I have been quiet on my blog because of these things.
1. I was at San Diego Comic-Con. These were there.
So was this.
2. Speaking of that, I saw the Batman movie. I was . . . underwhelmed. I’ve thought about it a lot over the past 24 hours, trying to decide why I was underwhelmed when so many of my peers thought it was brilliant, and I think it’s because the ending was quite nifty. I thought the entire thing was an hour and a half too long and very self-consciously dark/ manipulative (let’s add tension to this scene by adding some civilians. I know, how about a BUSLOAD OF ORPHANS!). I couldn’t get past that, but Lover could, because the ending was so very much what we both wanted. So. Don’t let me stop you from seeing it, but know that I miss the days of 100 minute films.
3. I went to the beach with my in-laws. I made this:
(the horse, not the bikini or the sunglasses).
I’ll be back next week and blogging lengthily about SOMETHING, I’m sure.
