"Batman Returns juxtaposes Batman and the Penguin, by presenting Oswald Cobblepot as a freak who aspires towards a life of wealth and privilege in contrast to Bruce Wayne as a “gold-plated bachelor” who wants nothing more than to be a freak. There’s a perverse poignancy to this interpretation of the character, a tenderness distinct from other approaches to Batman."

Hello, strangers. I'm Ana Rosa, a brazilian young writer, who buy more books than can read - as any normal person does. Training my english, sorry for any mistakes. :)

I work as copywriter freelancer, and I'm currently studying archetypes, storytelling and tarot (?), for some side projects. Oh, and writing a fiction about angels, humans and all the things between.

I also have another "me" on mastodon, for general things. Thank you for accepting me here. Ahoy.

I was just reading this... skull.website/@swirlz/10437662

RIP Sir Ian Holm, the unlikeliest actor to star in multiple David Cronenberg movies.

As we've always taken a stand against state surveillance, we stand now against state violence — especially as it's inflicted disproportionately on the Black community. We stand with those seeking justice for the brutality committed by our unjust system.

The acting in "I, Tonya" helps lift it beyond a Scorsese knock-off:

Kudos to Sebastian Stan in particular - he disappeared into Jeff Gillooly. Sadly, it's not a showy performance, so got zero recognition for it.

Hello world!

Quick introduction... I write about movies, games, books, and media in general at Strangevistas.com. It's an eclectic set of articles, ranging from anime to science fiction books to whatever B movie I've just become enamored with.
