The Mark of Zorro
Starring the iconic Tyrone Power, The Mark of Zorro was supposedly the movie that Bruce Wayne’s parents saw the night they were murdered in an alley, prompting their son to create his crime-fighting alter ego, Batman. Beyond that connection is a fun film with great dash and period melodrama.
The Dark Knight
Easily one of the best films of 2008, this latest installment of the Batman franchise is dark, sinister and kinetic. Knockout performances by Heath Ledger (a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination as the Joker), Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader and Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face, lend gravitas to the crop of comic book films.
