The Batman (2022)

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Fear is a tool. When that light hits the sky, it’s not just a call. It’s a warning.

He protects himself in a diary, the pen is the escape valve, and the paper is a witness to his shortcomings, weaknesses, and insecurities. Before seeing that Bruce Wayne guarding the streets of Gotham City in the bat suit, we have already seen the darkness that springs from his interior and that those shadows that serve as his ally are a natural place for his being. Matt Reeves imagines in The Batman (2022) a hero who is born from emotional torments and who acts on a wild instinct. The decadence that covers his city is the fertile ground for the Batman to find his purpose, even if it takes too long to understand how to fit in to achieve real change.

Val (2021)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Val (2021) demolishes paradigms and shows us an unadorned Val Kilmer, seeking to find his own voice by putting his life in perspective and building a retrospective of his career. Almost 40 years of career and more than 100 titles accompany the former Iceman, Doc Holliday, Simon Templar, Batman and even Jim Morrison himself.
