Loved Batman Begins

Whoa, I loved this movie. I am not a Batman fan. Don't really read many graphic novels. When the credits started rolling, my first thought, I want to see this movie again. Brooding millionaire who thinks he's got problems, traveling the world searching for ? ? ? -- exactly what the girl next door told him in the first place. He falls in with the wrong side, but doesn't give in. Hooray for good parenting. The supporting cast made this movie for me, Liam Neeson as the evil overlords of the shadows. Rutger H. plays the man into the money. Morgan F. is the genius. Michael C. !!! is Alfred - I hope everyone has someone who believes in them like that. I think that's what moved me the most, the power of believing in a person. Gary O. was just brilliant. He is quite the character actor. He just disappears into whatever part he was playing. And the bats!!!! Wow, I loved the bats. I've liked Christian Bale for forever and he's good in this part and Katie Holmes was properly distressed. I don't know how to give stars, so ' Again' says La la.

Rainbow Promises.

I submitted to the Highlights contest for the 1oth time. I lost for the tenth time. I have seen an inordinate number of rainbows recently. I see rainbows as promises. I keep looking up and seeing all that refracted light, ROY G BIV in living color, and my insides get all hopeful. It's a nice feeling.

Cinderella Man

Good morning, Universe! I saw Cinderella Man this past weekend.

I thought, "Oooh, I like Russell Crowe - I'm still breathing -- but boxing??? still, Renee' is from Texas and that Paul guy, he's always interesting."

I loved this movie. I was so wrapped up in it I was ready to light a candle for Jim. This was about destiny, true purpose, staying the course, and risking everything for your chosen profession. It's about believing things will work out. Just wonderful.
