Summer Holiday (and Batman Begins)

Yay!  I have my first portion of summer holidays … four days to enjoy the business end of the Wimbledon tennis championships.  Lazy lie-ins in the morning … Lying on the couch watching tennis and drinking ice-cold water in the afternoons … and a nice film in the evenings!

My week has been so good that I even went to see “Batman Begins” on Monday; it was utterly fantastic.  I’m a big fan of the Batman films (apart from the ludicrous “Batman & Robin”) and this new one is quite a change of direction.  Much darker, much more human and very well acted.  Christian Bale is excellent as is Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson and Gary Oldman.  I understand the change in direction is down to the new director Christopher Nolan, who has made a significant impression on the Batman saga.  The story of “Batman Begins” does contradict some of the background portrayed in the previous Batman films, which makes me wonder whether this is going to be the start of a whole new set of Batman films.  Given how good this new film was, this can only be a good thing.

Lie-ins, sublime Tennis, Great movies … Life is soooooooo good at the moment …

All together now … “We’re all going on a Summer Holiday!”
