Weekend Update - Time for Batman

Hey lovelies!

I have been busy. School started again and it's been interesting so far. My favorite class is definitely Film. I always knew I was into movies, so this class is going to be more than just awesome. Speaking of, I gave in and finally saw The Dark Knight Rises on Saturday.


As a huge Batman Movie/Show fan I have to say I was a little disappointed. It was good, don't get me wrong. Great catharsis, great sound, great actors (hello!!!), but overall...I hated the villain. Obviously, the villain is never to be liked but I literally hated him. It felt too real, too non-fiction. Where's the impossible-looking villain? Not the real dude?! Really.

Anyhow, that was that...the movie and all was awesome, but the villain and the story line disappointed me a little. I was waiting sooooo long for some real action to happen. Sorry if I have spoiled things now for those of you who haven't seen it yet. Though the end was fun, and of course I have to say the Man Candy was oh-so-yummy! And I'm not only talking about Christian Bale here. ;) Sigh....

So how was your weekend?!
Mine literally just consisted of the movie...and homework, and maybe some laundry too...and yes, True Blood of course! :) :)

Linking up with Leeann, Sami and Dana!
Are you?

Interesting movie review! I saw it in Dublin and I have to say that I LOVED it! I like when things have a real feel about them though, but I also see what you are saying!

Your film class sounds like so much fun! I've always wanted to take one of those!

These Batman movies are tricky because the comic books they were based on are not as "comicy" as we are used to. I like these movies... But I also love the old ones too with the goofiness.

Oh goodness True Blood was crazy! I still can't process that season finale but I will say I am and always will be #TeamEric :) Thanks for linking up!

Bane. BANE. I loved him so much. That was the opposite of what was supposed to happen, I'm pretty sure ;-)

Ashley said...

The villian couldn't compare to Heath Ledger's joker. That's the problem, I think.

I LOVED the ending, though! :)

Alexa said...

Hmmm...this is good to know. And I happen to agree with Ashley Heath Ledger was SO good in the Dark Knight...his act was hard to match.

Krystal said...

a film class would be so fun! and that ecard from your last post...is the story of my life. except that i don't start actual work until around 10. i don't know what i do...

Sam Morgan said...

I kind of agree, it did feel really real. Like someone could actually do that. It was good though, and I didn't have to see it in 3D, so that's always a plus. Oh and Joseph Gordon Leavitt...need I say more?

I LOVED the ending of the Batman movie, but I get where you are coming from. I wasn't disappointed - it was actually better than I had hoped because I didn't have any expectations. The love story was unexpected as well.

I still have YET to see this! Now I'm going to have to wait for dvd.
