Batman: Fighting evil and being unbelievably hot, all at the same time.

So last night my brother and I went and saw “Batman Begins.” I’ve seen all the Batman movies, and this one was definitely the best. Mostly because it focused on the reasons he dresses up like a bat and the reason and origins of the suit – all of which are pretty plausible, you know, as much as it can be. There was also humor. And a lot of violence, but to be honest, I really like the kind of movie violence that involves fighting with swords and skill and not just shooting guns and blowing stuff up. There was some of that too, but the fighting was cool.

I would totally go see it again, and in fact, may buy it when it comes out. “Why Amber,” you say “I had no idea you were such a fan of Batman.” That’s because I’m not. However, I AM a huge fan of Christian Bale. I loooooove him. I’ve loooooved him ever since I saw him in “Newsies” the first time (and the subsequent hundred times after that). I think I am now spoiled for all other men, because he is quite possibly the most beautiful man on the face of the earth. I just sat there staring at him the whole time like an idiot. Look! It’s Christian in a prison outfit and he has a beard! Hot. Hey, there’s Christian dressed up in ninja fighting clothes and kicking some ass! Hot. Look, there’s Christian dressed in a perfectly cut and fitted business suit/tuxedo! Oh my God. HOT. There’s Christian dressed up like Batman and kicking some more ass! Hot, even though I would like to see more of his pretty pretty face. Or, my favorite, HEY! It’s Christian! With no shirt on! Doing pushups! Wearing pajama pants! HOOOOOTTTT!!! I even found myself thinking that if Katie Holmes’ character was supposed to be so smart and grew up with Bruce Wayne, how can she not know that he’s Batman – he has a very distinctive mouth. Wow. I’m a sad, sad girl.

I think it’s a really good thing that I went to the movie with my brother, because he understands my love for all things Christian Bale. I would hate to have to explain all this to some random guy I was dating. Plus, I’d probably spend the rest of the date comparing him to Christian. Because I’m so very sad. And also clearly not at all grounded in reality.

Well now I have to go see it, don't I? You make an excellent movie critic!

Mmmm, Christian Bale.

Haha! Newsies!

I agree on the points made on both topics. Now I must see this movie.

I LOVED this movie! Easily the best Batman movie.

Best part of that movie? No Robin.

I'm sorry, but the Boy Wonder has never been cool. The Batman has always been a loner.
