I’m not particularly clumsy, but then I’m not particularly handy, so maybe I just don’t give myself enough opportunities to chew myself up.
Leftover pie? Sorry . . . in this house, “leftover” and “pie” just don’t work together in the same sentence. Genghis Babe made a pecan pie from scratch (well, okay, pecans really), and it was fabulous; everything you could hope from a pie.
As was Batman Begins (everything you could hope a movie would be, not what you would hope a pie would be, that is). They got the Bruce/Batman dichotomy just right, and explained everything about him without asking for too much suspension of disbelief. I think this is the move that makes everyone forget the last two, and saves the franchise.
I’d heard the fight scenes were a little hard to follow, but I think they were hard to follow in just the “right” way - you got a sense of real, consequential violence and impact in a chaotic flurry - just the way you would expect many-on-one violence to be.
So, all things considered, a huge thumbs up for Batman Begins. Genghis Babe wants to own it - coming from a non-Batman fan, that’s a huge endorsement.
Thanks for all the well-wishes, and mutual Happy Happy to all my fellow Geminis, clumsy or not!
(And thanks for all the fish; and the punctuation and smilies . . . )
