A Dark and Stormy Knight

When I was out this morning I thought “Snow in the morning, huh. Ya, sure…” But then it started snowing and didn’t really let up. I went to the office early and left early. The roads were pretty snowy but the blowing snow was the greater trouble. Due to the conditions our church‘s Christmas Programme was cancelled and put off until Monday (22nd). So the evening was free.

This past Tuesday I got a call from Movie Gallery in Newcastle saying I’d won a free movie rental. I’d thought I’d use it to check out The Dark Knight, which I’d heard was pretty impressive and gripping and dark. So I braved the storm and picked it up. When I was heading to the truck I notice Tim Horton’s and figured I’d use the gift card I’d won (at the Royal LePage Frank dinner) to grab some treats for during the movie.

Mom and Dad watched The Dark Knight too. Well, it was impressive and gripping and dark. The characters were deep and it was clever and exciting. I don’t think it lived up to the hype I’d heard, though. Maybe it would have had more of an impact on me if I’d grown up with more Batman. Still, I’m glad I checked it out.
