The Dark Knight at Tokyo Tokyo

No...this is not a movie review...well sort of...but just wanted to share that I watched The Dark Knight...last night! it rhymes huh...with close friends.. husband and wife tandem of Cathy and Yatz...spur of the moment thing...


it was a Friday...and did not want to go home yet amidst the fact that I really left school late because of all the work I had to do and to prepare for (the next day)...and I thought of texting Catz...and she was looking for something to do too...


I thought we wouldn't get to meet...coz she was someplace else...and I was itching to leave school...as usual i was the lastone to leave the office and lock its doors...at what? 630?!? good grief!...and despite the not so heavy traffic - that's a first on a friday night...I went down at SM...to kill time...


and Catz texted back that they were there too...nyak! halos magkasunod rin lang pala kami...


suffice it to say...i met up with them...and was craving for...tempura! so we checked out Tempura whatsisname? hehe...di kaya ng budget...so we ended up at Tokyo Tokyo hehe...too bad no more free Imago CD nyahaha...and at last my tempura craving was assuaged!...


wohoo!



*****



as our dinner steadily disappeared down our throats and our kwentuhan winded down...I said...you guys aren't going to the supermarket??! they usually do whenever I meet up with them at SM...but they said no...they did that yesterday...yah right?! then what the fuss ?... magpalibre sana kami sayo ng sine eh...


ganun!...why did you guys say that sooner!...nde un panlilibre huh! hehe gusto ko rin manuod ng sine!


and you know what made last night memorable and funnier?...I knew for a fact that Cat rarely gets to watch a movie...and even with her husband Yatz not that often ...and I shared that...yup! gosh! I can't recall the last movie I watched ...it was that loooong ago...and then she shared...they shared that the last movie they watched was...girlfriend...My Best Friend's Girlfriend!...OMG! then I remembered...that TOO was the last movie I watched! wahahaha..how about that huh....how pathetic! nyahaha


my mom was a text away...i asked permission of course...good girl ako eh...and off we went to catch the last full show...of THE DARK KNIGHT!...


and OMG!


I was sitting at the edge of my seat...


coz I can hardly understand what they are saying! haha kidding! but yeah that was the downside for me for most of the movie...I can hardly understand the dialogue because...I think people has a penchant for whispering at night...it spooks the neighbors! haha


but was it good! yup! it was it was so good!...didn't have much fight scenes or blast scenes...except for that turning 18-wheeler oh and the tunnel chase scene...but hey I'm no spoiler hehe...


what I liked most about the movie is its story...gosh! a psychologist will have a field day understanding the criminal mind of the Joker and his motivation and lack thereof...and of course Batman...his real reason for staying a vigilante and doing that while NOT killing anybody! hanep! now that's what I call pagtitimpi! haha


obvioulsy I'm not a comic book fan...haven't read any of these comic book made into movies...but hey!...I bet they are one good read if it makes you think and be more fascinated with the human psyche...


sorry...that's what you get from socializing with "psych people"...me, cat and yatz were all former guidance counselors did I mention that...so it was a foregone conclusion that we would end up dissecting the characters repressed feelings like Freud haha...



*****


and for those who watched the movie...of course I know the movie was set in HongKong!...right?! haha


I have to watch the movie again...with captions! coz I like the last part of the movie...the part where I hardly understood Gary Oldman! haha...I think it's because of his mustache...wahahaha
