OK, I just had to post because I’m thinking of posting right now, but I know I shouldn’t. So I decided to split this up into 2 (or more, who knows?) parts.
So last night I watched Batman. The first one. From the late 80’s. I’d never seen it and so my husband put his foot down and said it was a classic and it was a crime that I hadn’t see it and so we were going to watch it (gosh darn it).
And so we did. It was a full 2 hours of CRAP. Yes, you read that right. I thought Batman was CRAP. The only part I liked was Jack Nicholson as The Joker. Jack was so great! And that circus music and dancing and stuff – that was just great. I loved it.
I think the real reason I hated it so much was the love story part. I thought it was rather stalkerish than lovey dovey, and in part 2 I will expound on this further. But for now, I will just say:
BATMAN IS A SUCKY ASS MOVIE.
Seriously, if you disagree with me, think about when you first saw it. Maybe it’s because the first Batman movie I saw was The Dark Knight. That movie was effing awesome – great acting, great sets, realistic explosions and effects (no it’s not really fair to compare special effects of late 80’s to the late 00’s, but still). So I guess I should really blame The Dark Knight for setting my expectations so high. But seriously, go watch it again. I dare you not to be creeped out by Bruce and Vicky and their weird ass fatal attraction to each other. Girlfriend has really got to get some more self esteem if you ask me. And 108 pounds? I wanted to kick her in the freaking face.
……can you tell I really really really hated Vicki Vale in this movie? Because if you didn’t realize by now….wait. No it’s not possible to not have picked up on my Vicki Vale sucks vibes.
