If you ever knew how badly I want to blog about The Dark Knight Rises, you’d feel bad for me. I have an itching in my fingers to discuss it in this post, alas I can’t as it’s a newly released film and I know some of you haven’t seen it yet. I’ll give it a couple of weeks before I go in depth about how much this film rocked. I’m literally torn between The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises being film of the year because they were both amazing and asdfghjkl. You can’t make me choose.
Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt can feel free to slip into my bed, now.
As you know, it’s the Olympics over here in London and the opening ceremony is today. At first, I was slightly annoyed by the Olympics only because the amount of money that we’ve spent on it and because our country is kind of… shitty, so can we even live up to expectations? Maybe I’m being pessimistic but nevertheless, I am quite excited to watch the opening ceremony tonight to see what Danny Boyle is planning to do with these animals in the ceremony. The Olympic Torch came through near where I live yesterday, and it was actually pretty good. Before we saw the torch bearer, there were these big vans coming through before blasting music out and lots of dancing. It was like carnival!
Apparently the torchbearer was this guy who’s big in Bollywood called Amitabh Bachchan, but I had no idea. Still, we were pretty close and got okay pictures and a video too.
