Happy Friday, The Dark Knight Rises, and Hurdlers Melt My Heart
July 20, 2012
Hello there. I see you. Looking at these words.
First and foremost, I hope you have a great weekend. I do. I hope it. I hope it from the tips of my toes and in all of my crazy bones. I’ve got crazy bones! And they’re hoping you have a great weekend. Of something. I don’t want to assume what your great something is, but I hope for it for you. I hope you have a great weekend doing something.
Or just go out and get sleazy.
As for the post today…
Yesterday, Michelle Jenneke came into our lives and many more came after that. Ugh… I got pretty sleazy there. Deal with it.
So, 19 year old Australian hurdler, Michelle Jenneke, is the proud owner of the unintentionally sexiest moment of 2012 and possibly of any year preceding this one…
If a picture is worth a 1000 words than that video is worth billions. Just incredible.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
I thought it was great.
I’m not going to really “review” review it because I’m not in the mood to type out all the spoilers or anything, but I also don’t want to spoil it for you as I hope you all see it and enjoy it when you do.
It is long and it is complicated, and so is every comic book series I’ve ever read. I think this movie more than the others feels the most like a comic book or a superhero movie. It’s got more humor, it’s got more overarching storylines, twists, and so forth.
It was epic. It was epic in general, but epic like a superhero/comic book movie should be.
I think it was also very fan friendly. And I mean “fan friendly” in dozens of ways.
I enjoyed it. It’s 2 hours and 45 minutes and it had plenty of stuff happening the entire time and I wouldn’t say it flew bye, but it certainly moved and covered ground quickly.
If you liked Nolan’s other Batman movies, if you liked Nolan’s other movies in general then you’ll like this movie.
Have a great weekend.
