Steeplechase

Thoughts on "Batman Begins"

As Lily and I were making our way to the aisle during the credits, she said, in awed tones, “Wow—that was a good movie. It’s been so long since I’ve seen one that I’d forgotten what they’re like.”

It was a good movie; I might even go so far as to say a great movie. Not a perfect movie, but at least as good as (in some ways, argurably superior to) Tim Burton’s take on the World’s Greatest Detective.

(Schumacher? Pfagh! We do not speak of Nippleboy’s celluloid excretions under my roof.)
