has the dark knight completely overshadowed fox mulder? or is it because david duchovny held out too long –until he had a string of losing films, before he signed onto the second x-files movie. in the end, it’s probably a bit of both. well duchovny is quite 20th century while christian bale is a 21st century kinda guy.

can christopher nolan’s ‘the dark knight’ topple james cameron’s ‘titanic?’ well, we know the score won’t. i guess the batman producers neglected to insert a bonafide pop tune into the soundtrack. might be why the film is a runaway hit.
how to fix it. well, next week for sure christian bale will be on the cover of us weekly, people, and the sun and mirror. what can he do? well, he should sit down with his publicist and spill the beans on his mother and his sister. this is called character assasination.
for instance, has his mother ever been hospitalized for depression, does his sister have a drinking problem? have either of them ever had a peaches geldof moment? does either of them have a police record. you know the usual stuff people dig up to smear those they dislike. the only problem is, it’s his mother.

but we love christian bale, and will suport him through thick and thin. because, well, he was brilliant in american psycho. don’t let them shake you down christian. we’ve watched entourage. we know what happens when there’s a movie star in the family. everyone wants his cut.
