BATDAY 1989

AND, FUCK ME, IT’S BATDAY!

The movie is here!

It’s made $150 million in the USA – and it hasn’t even opened here yet.  It’s rumoured that it’s going to be the biggest box office blockbuster yet.

And it’s been hyped so much that I’ve wanted to see it for MONTHS!  And now it’s here, I want it to be the best film I’ve ever seen.  I really want it to do well and be brilliant.

Well, we’ll see tonite, won’t we?



Later:

‘Kisses On The Wind’ – Neneh Cherry

I arrived in Castleford today, and I went off to the ABC Cinema in Wakefield to see BATMAN with Flash and Raquel.  Big queues.  And despite the fact that the cinema was crap and full of wankers (and let’s face it, admission was only a quid), BATMAN was a fantastic film (due mainly to the performances of NICHOLSON, KEATON, and BASINGER).  A lot of the time it had me in stitches and the twists and turns of the plot and the whole angle of the movie chuffed me chuffless.  Really brilliant stuff!

So we’re going to go and see it again…

This evening, back at Flash’s, we watched a couple of episodes of the old The Twilight Zone.  I enjoyed them, so I’m quite interested in that now.
