Saw The Dark Knight the other day with Wes, Jared and Chris on the boardwalk in Ocean City. Haven’t seen a movie on the boardwalk in years. The theatre was pretty lousy inside, but it was cool to be packed in there and reminded me of all the movies I’d seen on the boardwalk growing up.
While walking there we were the witness to a truly classic event. Chris was delighted to see some money poking up from under the boards. While he eagerly reached down to pick up this monetary gift, so it vanished right before he could get his hands on it. Wow, he’d fallen for one of the oldest of boardwalk pranks. It was great, I couldn’t stop laughing that he fell for it and I’m sure those kids under the boardwalk with the money have quite a tale to tell when they go back to school in a few weeks.
I thought the movie was really good. Usually I’ll go see a comic based movie just because I used to be so into comics. And I end of liking them just because I’m so familiar with the characters and stories. But this was a good movie even if Batman and the Joker weren’t in it.
The Joker really stole the show. He was dark and twisted, yet comical at the same time. He really made the movie. I wasn’t expecting the whole Two-Face story, so that was a cool surprise too. Very good movie, go see it if you haven’t already.
