BATMAN BEGINS--and a tree falls in the forest

So, $47 million smackers for Batman Begins, $71.1 million since Wednesday. Not bad. Not good either.

You see, I had high hopes for the box office gross for Batman Begins. I even entertained the foolish thought that Begins would usurp the all-time box-office title from Spiderman. I don’t know what the hell is wrong with these people. You’d think that after eight years of waiting for a movie that actually makes sense, made by passionate filmmakers and actors who give a shit about the material and therefore turn in some great performances--you know? I’m reading reviews online that call this film one of the best superhero films, if not the best, ever made--with others saying that this movie will make their year-end Top 10 list and still others hinting at Oscar possibilities--and audience reaction is lukewarm?

Does not compute.
