BATMAN!!!


I saw the new Batman movie last weekend. It was good. I really annoyed my fellow moviegoers to no end because I drink like a fish and have the bladder the size of a walnut.

I drank so much because I don’t stay up very late, and I did the marathon, which started at 6:30 – which meant that when I got into the theater at around 5:30 – we had to split up our group to get seats.

So, I had a chicken sandwich before I got to the theater. But 10 minutes into Batman Begins I was getting hungry. I splurged on a giant soda – knowing that I couldn’t stay awake otherwise, and chugged that 64 ounces of tarlike goodness.

Look what I found. An old Batman pic I drew.
So yeah, I had to pee, and pee, and pee some more. I didn’t count the number of times I had to pee, but it was a lot. Of course, by the time the second movie started, I had gone far beyond hunger into some sort of desperation for food. I ordered the in house pizza, which is really just a frozen pizza, but at the theater – so it costs way more than a regular frozen pizza. But if I learned anything from the bible, it's that some people, if they're hungry enough, will give just about anything for some lame food. 

I'm one of those people.

Anyhow, I needed another 64 ouncer to wash down that very salty pizza. Which of course meant more trips to the men's room. Lot's more.

By the time the third movie started, my urine was looked like Kentucky bourbon, but I was awake. I got to watch the new Batman movie at midnight and wasn't even sleepy. One of the people beside me said they decided to use some 5 hour energy instead of a gallon of soda and I thought, yes, that would have been much smarter.

The movie, by the way, was good. I din not like it as much as the last one, but it was still good, and as far as trilogy goes it has to be one of the best ever made.

I knew the running time so only sipped at my water during the movie. Impressed you got to see all three together. And yes, excellent movie, although a little too dark, but a great way to wrap up the series. The last five minutes were worth it.

I forgot to sneak in a bottle of water and I refuse to pay $3.00 for a small soda so I went without and was pretty thirsty by the end. Fortunately I had a bag of cough drops and in the car I had a leftover soda from Wendy's that wasn't too warm yet.

Anyway, this is one of the best trilogies ever. Perhaps in a way even better than Star Wars if only because "Return of the Jedi" was kind of a weak link. Right up there with "Lord of the Rings" really as far as trilogies go.

I generally sneak in water and then just take tiny little sips throughout because I don't want to have to get up in the middle of the show.

I haven't seen the third movie yet. It's my reward for finishing my edits. I hope I finish them before TDKR leaves theaters...

I didn't drink anything during the movie, but I was still about to explode by the time it was over. It's probably a good thing there was nothing to laugh at in the movie.

Review coming soon.

I think it's awesome that this post had almost nothing to do with the subject.

I'd be making lots of trips to the restroom, too, if I drank that much soda. The 5 hour energy thing made me laugh. Glad you had a good time. Bet that pizza cost about $300.

I watched the movie dehydrated, as I didn't want to miss one single minute.

As a whole, it is one of the most solid trilogies EVER made. I have to admit, however, that there were a bunch of plot holes in the last 10 minutes. Kinda bothered me, but the postitives far out-weighed the negatives.

I think maybe a restaurant dinner BEFORE the movie marathon would help next time. Or not.

Sounds like it was an event rife with complications - and I STILL wish I could have done the same.

Nice depiction by the way.

Rusty, you are 100% right about being the best trilogy. The feel and quality has been consistent throughout.

I have to pee a lot too. I wonder if it's cause you and I are getting older. I don't remember having to pee as much when I was spry.
