Batman Begins FINALLY!!

So, at the end of the Season Finale of "Smallville" (go ahead, MOCK!), there was a 10 minute preview of "Batman Begins"... WB has been rolling this thing out as if it were it's last gasp or something. I mean, it feels like it has been YEARS of publicity covering rights acquisition, pre-production, production and finally, now, its release! And in this 10 minute promo-thon, well,... it looks gorgeous!

I. Can't. Wait! Christopher Nolan has been brilliant in the past ("Following," "Memento"), so I do trust him and can't wait to see what he can do with an actual BUDGET! ("Following" cost a mere $50,000 UK pounds.) And of course, Christian Bale looks gorgeous! And he's backed up by none other than Michael Caine, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman! I mean... The thing has GOT to be BRILLIANT!!! The ONLY hesitation I had during that 10 minutes was the Bat-Hummer-Mobile. It's a bit over the top. Nevertheless, I. Can't. Wait!

And this coming from someone who has never been a bat-fan.

In other news, "Smallville" rocked! Or at least, as is it's tradition as far as Season Finales are concerned! They are FINALLY the Oldest Living Graduates from Smallville High. Finally! There might be some dead bodies, though none quite as dramatic as last season's 'shocker' when we watch (what we thought) was Chloe being blown up. And apparently, Clark has been sent to his Fortress of Solitude in the artic!! Now, please indulge me and let us all take a moment to meditate that they will let time pass!! And in the next season opener, Smallville's Oldest Living Graduates will be playing their actual ages! But that might be too much, I know....
