Excuses, excuses, excuses...

I have a good excuse for not posting in over a month... I was at Crawford - tons of brush to clear. That, and I've got tons of shit to cover up.

Hollywood's idea of wasting billions of dollars: A movie with no end.

I rented Batman Begins last night, that new batman movie with Christen Bale, and excuse me, but I don’t understand why everyone thinks batman is such a stand up dude. He rampages through a city destroying everything in his path just to bring to justice one insane criminal.

ONE insane criminal who killed maybe, I dunno, like a couple hundred people. But he didn’t even kill them onscreen, his cronies killed them offscreen. His cronies! In the process of bringing this insane criminal to justice, Batman probably murdered, I dunno, I’m going to take a wild guess here, maybe like, 30,000 people! That estimate may even be low, it’s not the point. The point is; what good is a superhero if he destroys cities and accidentally kills the people he’s trying to protect?

The movie is retarded, it is so fictional it makes me want to puke. That stuff couldn’t happen in real life, it’s not even remotely grounded in reality. If an insane vigilante do-gooder tried to bring insane criminals to justice with a kill ratio like Batman’s, he’d be strung up by the neck and dragged through the streets. The movie is just retarded. And it had no end! If a movie is going to suck, it should at least suck quickly.

Thank god its fiction.
