It's May 2009. Right now. That calendar thingy in the corner of my laptop says it's May 8, 2009.
A year ago, I was anticipating the release of The Dark Knight. Here's my entry in which I get all excited about it. The buzz was off the hizzle, I was already a Batman fan and it was Heath Ledger's final film. The movie was set to open in July and I was ready.
I planned to see it in August. I didn't feel like dealing with the massive July crowds. I'd score babysitting for a night in August and we'd catch the film of the year on the big screen.
It's May 2009, and I still haven't seen The Dark Knight. Amazing reviews, assurances from everyone I trust that I'll love it and a rise to #2 on the all-time box office chart wasn't enough to make it happen.
I really want to see it.
