Christian Bale ko weird movies kyun aate hain?

(The title is a play on an existing movie. Great for me if you get it. Kudos to you if you don't.)

Seriously though, have you ever seen Bale in any light-hearted movie? Or for that matter any movie which doesn't have grey & blue as the dominant colour palette? I was talking the other day to a friend, and said I'm watching a lot of movies lately. "What are you watching?," she asked. Not wanting to readily admit that I was intrigued by American Psycho, I told her, offhandedly, that it was a romantic comedy with Christian Bale.

Total silence. She saw through it immediately. There are no romantic comedies with him!

That's how dire you are, Christian!

Having not seen the trailers, I half expected Bale to star in Interstellar, because that's all I can associate with Christopher Nolan lately. After watching the movie I understood that simply wasn't possible. (Vague Spoiler Alert:) I mean, we would have given up hope for Earth in the movie the minute he would have appeared on the screen, no one can take tragedy away from him!

Meh, I'm bored. Half of me wants to photoshop comedy movie posters with his face. The other half reminds me that I don't know how to photoshop.

    1. Whoa, I'd say that's a stretch. But I think even if he had never done Batman, I think given a choice we would have voted it as the only superhero movie which could be done by Bale. All that brooding & shades of grey are just perfect for him :)

  3. Probably he should morph into a Drop once in a while.
