Listen to Batman – Wear a Mask

2920A7A7-8944-47BD-9B71-7811B39A4FF8

As we are all more than aware a lot of kicking off has been going on within England and the UK about the changes to when and where you have to wear a mask. Yes, it is all being done four months too late. But seriously what big issue is it when they have changed the rules and from Friday we have to wear a face covering within shops? I don’t really understand what the issue is for doing this for the 15/20 minutes you will possibly be in said shop? Don’t even start by saying you cannot breathe with it on, as I am sure in the winter you will cover your face with a scarf/snood!

Come on listen to Batman and why Bruce Wayne decided to wear the mask!

15 Years of Batman Begins!

That’s right the truly incredible start to Christopher Nolan’s darker Batman trilogy was released 15 years ago today, I don’t know about anyone else but that makes me feel incredibly old!?!? I adore this trilogy and Batman Begins is an incredible film. Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne is very different to what we had previous seen and then you add in Michael Caine as Alfred! Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow is haunting as well!
