A dizzying and disturbing return of a cinematic icon, Matt Reeves’s THE BATMAN gives Marvel a run for its money. His take on the famed DC Comics hero is nothing like the versions crafted by Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan. What Reeves has done is proven just how malleable a character Bruce Wayne/Batman remains.
A sprawling crime opera that is relevant and unsettling, its noir coated heart beats with visceral emotion thanks to its ensemble led by Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Andy Sirkis, Jeffrey Wright, and a terrifying Paul Dano as the sadistic Riddler.
If you haven’t laid eyes on THE BATMAN, believe the hype. To sweeten the pot more, watch this deleted scene featuring the Joker, a version you’ve never seen before. It telegraphs just how much Reeves had up his sleeve when taking on the oft-filmed property.
Former President Donald Trump filed a sprawling federal lawsuit on Thursday against Hillary Clinton and people allegedly involved with opposition research in 2016, accusing them of conspiring to vilify the then-Republican presidential candidate and cripple his campaign.

Is this all Trump knows how to do? Sur his way into our consciousness?
Is this all his supporters care to know about world politics?! The irony that Russian influence on his life and political “career” is all in up in his face.
Worse, we are at a global crossroads with Russia, threatening the stability of the world with their vicious war. But sure, Trump is there, waving ANOTHER law suit to make it all about HIM.
I’m tired of watching yet another episode of “Donald Trump: Professional Victim.”
I don’t know what is worse in this appalling situation involving “Turning Red” and the review submitted by Sean O’Connell. He is CinemaBlend’s MANAGING EDITOR! And that generic mea culpa from the website and O’Connell? Just more of that “Oops, my bad” copy that is such a weak bandaid. I’ve been a film reviewer in my career. It is never about YOU in most cases, but this era of writing for site traffic is so demoralizing. This feels like Pixar is now a target for alt-right bullshit. We need to do and be better already if we want to survive this endless barrage of hate.

Seeing and hearing that former President Donald Trump actually supports Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is the quintessential slap in the face of democracy.
The Cold War wasn’t without its American victims, so to find that members of the MAGA Red Menace, known as Trumputin, his supporters, and former political candidates, makes me want to reach for a Bible to shove down their wicked throats.
Read this quote from another of Satan’s Whores, Lauren Witzke, former Delaware GOP candidate for the US Senate:
I mean, whaaat in the hell????
Taking over an entire nation because they dared to separate from your Evil Empire is not a Christian act. Destroying infrastructures, claiming innocent lives, and putting your nuclear arsenal on high alert are not things Christ has on their “to-do” list.
A closer look at La Witzke reveals she’s quite adept at doubling down on this theme of good Christian values. As Steph Bazzle of the Hill Reporter website wrote for her column on 2/25:
Let that marinate for a spell. I’ll hold. She’s not going anywhere, folks.
Between Liwitzke and the now infamous, instantly meme-ready, and grotesque display of hooliganism from the OG Satan’s Whores, aka Marjorie Taylor Greene & Lauren Boebert, I’m pretty much done with this day’s news cycle.
