We were naughty and went to a movie last night in part so we wouldn’t go stir crazy sitting around the apartment, which is pretty much what we do when we’re not working at the moment. We saw Batman Begins and, despite a couple of plot holes, it was easily the best Batman movie ever made. And that’s coming from someone who liked Tim Burton’s Batman. It worked mainly because it went back to the source material and started over and told the story a little more along similar lines to the comic book itself. It also kept the spotlight on Bruce Wayne/Batman where it belonged and added a depth to his character that was absent from previous movies. Gotham was also a lot more believable than in films past. All in all an excellent comeback for a franchise that had become a trite and silly parody of itself. Plus it was cool to see Gary Oldman playing a good guy for once.
