Batman Blech

Watched Batman Begins on TIVO the other night. I remember when the first one (modern one) came out in 1989. So slick, so cool.

Don't get me wrong. I liked this Batman also - and I'm not one to like these sort of movies, but the casting bothered me. Specifically, Katie Holmes.

In 1989, Michael Keaton's Batman had Kim Basinger. Last years Batman had Katie Holmes. Woman v. Girl. True, Basinger was 36 in 1989 and Katie was 24 or so last year, but I think this is indicative of what Hollywood wants...maybe America.

It seems more and more female actresses and models look like girls instead of women. When katie Holmes turns 36 she'll be a 36-year old girl. When Basinger was 24, she was a 24 year old woman. God bless women.

Stay You.
