Over the weekend Patrick and I joined some friends to see the new Batman movie. A nearby cinema offers private watch parties, where you can rent out a whole screen for just you and your friends, so we’ve been able to see a handful of new releases with the peace of mind of being surrounded by our vaccinated friends, who also won’t ruin the movie by being on their phones or talking!
It’s been awhile since I did a basic outfit post, but the film inspired me to create an outfit with a Catwoman vibe, and also gave me the purr-fect chance to introduce the latest member of the family here on the blog! If you follow me on Instagram, then this is kind of old news, but December we adopted this little black fluff-ball, and dubbed him Houdini, as he proved to be quite the escape artist.
Growing up my cats were always abandoned ones, left behind by their owners after they moved (which was the case for Colonel Whiskers) but Houdini was adopted from the local animal shelter, as I felt Colonel was beginning to feel lonely. While I would prefer to adopt adult and senior cats, we opted for a kitten, because we knew it would be easier for Colonel to accept and feel less threatened by a kitten. It’s been a slow process, but Colonel is finally accepting of Houdini…for the most part. They fight a lot, but it has been more playful lately. Houdini seems to really look up to Colonel and wants to do everything with him.
As for the movie, I went in with zero expectations (I’m not the biggest Robert Pattinson fan), but ended up really enjoyed it. Batman was my first real love in life. For one reason or another I became enamored with Batman, especially Adam West’s 60s version, when I was a year old, and continue to love that version the most. Over the decades, Batman has seen many, many interpretations on the page and screen, some amazing, others not so much, but I really quite liked this version, as it was very grounded. I’ve been really burnt out on superhero films lately, mainly Marvel, because they are just so exhausting! You’re required to have seen every single film, every TV show, and then remember it all in order to understand the latest film! And while Warner Brothers has been trying to follow Disney’s lead by creating an interconnected DC universe, this Batman films stands on its own, separate from other DC films and previous Batman movies. And while Batman is a superhero, Batman made his first appearance in Detective Comics, and this film really brought Batman back to those detective roots with neo-noir elements, which I especially liked.
