Batman Begins

Karen suggested going to see Batman tonight and I couldn't resist. It was great to see it with friends, and it was a truly, unabashedly good film. Now, I loved the original Batman by Tim Burton, and this takes up that tortured mantel, only this time around, there is no wild color to brighten the darkness. It was great.

Plus, before the show, they ran the Serenity trailer, and I wasn't the only one in the theater cheering. It was nice to see it up on the bright big screen. I still argue that it's a less than wow trailer, but hopefully it will be enough.

Tomorrow I'm off to Lodi to see my oldest childhood friend get married. I've known Danny since I was 12 and he was 11. We met one night at a party at my dad's house, and spent the evening talking over politics and religion. He was my dad's girlfriend's best friend's son. Over the years we'd wander in and out of each other's lives, always picking up where we left off. It's bizzare to think of us both in our thirties, settled down in domesticity. This is one of those times when I feel old. Mostly in a good way though.
