Catwoman, trivia nights & a dull weekend at the movies

So, we've been following the set-reveals and discussion surrounding Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Yesterday we got a sneak peek at Anne Hathaway's Catwoman costume...and it pretty much looks exactly like 1960s sex-kitten Julie Newmar. What the hell? Given that Nolan has been trying to make his Batman films as "realistic" and gritty as possible, I have no idea how they are going to play this. We'll see. Neither the Boom Operator or I caught any new movies this week, as the prominent releases starred Taylor Lautner and an animated lion from 1994, but I'd like to see Moneyball at some point, in spite of its accolades as an "Oscar-contender." Most of the talk was about the Faustian decline of Tim Burton, the lack of appreciation of Terry Gilliam, and our impending second plunge into bar trivia.

Speaking of which, Tavern Trivia part deux was another success! Thanks to all who braved the BBBBQ motorcycle rally and showed up, even that team of drunken troglodytes named *sigh* the "Weiner-Dicks." And if I have learned anything from our "Draw Your Own Poster" phase, it's that people love to draw dicks. You sick bastards. Our next trivia night will be Tuesday, October 11th, so pencil us in.

We heard music from the following films:
Bachelor Party - Various (1985)
Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus - Jeff Dana (2009)
Mission to Mars - Ennio Morricone (2000)
The Dark Knight - Hans Zimmer (2008)
The Fifth Element - Eric Serra (1997)
Time Bandits - Audio Clip (1981)
