Brief Encounter

I took the kids to see Batman Begins last night, and I for one thought it was great.

With Christian Bale (born Haverfordwest 1974) fimly ensconced as Batman and Ioan Gruffudd (Cardiff 1973) due as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic in the Fantastic Four next month, 2005 is shaping up as the year of the Welsh super hero.

Marvel and DC comics are all very well I suppose, but if only an enterprising studio would bring Viz's Felix and his Amazing Underpants to the silver screen with Rhys Ifans (Ruthin, Denbighshire, 1968) in the title role my life would be complete.
