a favourite folky song inserted for your enjoyment - The Unthanks Blue's Gaen Oot O'the Fashion
Monday, I had to go to work but I have shuftied me hours about like and get to finish at 1 this week. Just in time for Japanese food and then The Goddamn Batman, followed by cocktails and nibbles at Popolos (I had a sloe gin fizz which was AWESOME!) And this is what I thought of the Goddamn Batman:
Full of plot holes, Alfred seemed to be channelling Katie Holmes from the first film. I couldn't make out half of what Bane said. Batman's recovery from his broken back was completely and totally unbelievable, and he spent far too much time down the pit of despair.
BUT I really, really enjoyed it, the gadgets were amazing, Anne Hathaway was scorching, I FOOKING loved the Batbike/pod whatever the fookiddy fook it was called. The effects were great, the little touches of humour brilliant. Tom Hardy - fantastic. Gary Oldman, I still would - just saying. The ending - just bloody perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed every rollercoaster minute. I do think it had serious problems and ultimately it was bobbins but I really didn't care too much about that.
And then yesterday I picked up Mrs Browns Boys and spent a happy evening with Agnes and some knitting. Sigggghhh 2 sleeps til the kids are home!
