Bruce Wayne. After this years Batman vs Superman some may well say Batffleck is their number one and even I have to admit that he was ABS-olutely fantastic in the role. Then there are those fucking idiots that will say Christian Bale is the top dog. However, that just goes to prove that people are easily pleased and that Christopher Nolan can make anyone look better than they are. There's a reason that Heath Ledger is the main thing people talk about when they discuss the Dark Knight trilogy: Christian Bale is so forgettable in the role the supporting characters outshine him. I also imagine, because human beings continue to surprise me, that there are those who prefer the nippley George Clooney and Val Kilmer. Of course, we all know that they are probably mentally unstable or have only seen Joel Schumacher’s two films. Now when it comes to the ultimate Batman there can only be one real winner. Yes, my favourite and, by association, the Number 1 big screen portrayal of Gotham's vigilante is Michael Keaton. Tim Burton's Batman and the slightly superior Batman Returns are just amazing. Which is why I'm going to talk about the first of them this week.

Man of Steel was just dreadful and proved that Zac Snyder really should have called it quits on comic book movies after Watchmen was only hated by a handful of people. Those of you who were around at the time of my review of the first of Snyder's Superman films will remember that, aside from it being badly written and really fucking long, it was't exactly complimentary. I just didn't get Snyder's vision for the most popular alien in the DCEU. Still, those photos of Ben Affleck looking super buff got me interested and I finally decided it was time to watch it. I was a big fan of the Batffleck before watching this film so it would be just like Snyder to fuck that up for me too. I decided it was right to watch the Ultimate Edition and, after a gruelling day at work, I sat down for a gruelling 3 hours of muted tones, smack you in the face symbolism, and terrible parts for women. Classic Snyds.

Today has been all about eating unfortunately. I had a massive Scottish breakfast this morning and. despite not wanting any proper meals, I've snacked way more than somebody who feasted on so many calories earlier should. Thankfully, I'm getting back into my regular exercise routine and am at the point where I actually want to do something when I get home from work. It won't last because it never does. This is why I have to mention my triumphs so much. They're so few and far between that I need to make a lasting record of them. Otherwise, who would fucking believe me? It's kind of like the reason I do this rundown. If I don't write down what I'm reading and buying then how would I ever keep track? I've tried to keep a reading list but I always forgot to update it. It meant I could never remember how many books I read in one year. Making it impossible to set myself yearly goals. One day, with the use of this blog, I'll become an organised and put together human adult... or at least as close as someone with the amount of toy swords and guns possibly can get.

End of Watch. I kind of wish I could get my time back from Stephen King after reading his Bill Hodges trilogy. You know, add up the minutes, take them off his life and put them onto mine. Only seems fair. That final book was ridiculous. Although, they kind of all were.

I feel like I'm never going to get over this cold. I'm getting sick of feeling sorry for myself and being so melodramatic all the time. However, I swear that my head has been full of concrete for the past few days. It's the kind of cold that kids me into thinking I'm okay when I first wake up but comes back with a vengeance as the day goes on. It doesn't help that the kitchen has been fucking boiling lately. I honestly dream of getting a job that doesn't require me to work in a similar environment to Satan himself. How long until the comforting chill of Winter? Seriously, I need to get my knitwear out. This sun is doing nothing for me anymore.

I'm currently still reading the final book in Stephen King's Bill Hodges trilogy, End of Watch, and I'm hating every moment of it. I can't wait to finish it and, I have to be honest, I've looked ahead to find out how it ends. It's not great but I've spent so much time on it that I feel like I have to finish. This always happens to me, I start a book and try so hard to finish it that I just keep going despite knowing it won't be any good. Obviously, as I'm struggling to read it not only makes it harder to finish but it's also highlighting how many other things I could be reading. As you know from my weekly rundowns, I have a problem with buying too many books so I have plenty to be getting on with. They all sit looking at me as I struggle to give a shit about Brady's fucking psychic powers and Bill's cancer. So I've compiled a list of the books I'd rather be reading than this shit.
