Sadly, due to my workload I was unable to post much on my blog for the past weeks. Happily, though, I am glad to share that my entry to the 2020 Nikon Auckland Photo Day has been selected as one of the finalists for the People’s Choice winner.

Who would have thought! This is the best news I’ve read for a long time! Michael Keaton… as Batman again… in The Flashpoint movie with Ezra Miller. I kinda liked Ezra Miller as The Flash in the Justice League movie. I’ve counted three good news here. First, The Flashpoint movie is still alive. Second, Ezra Miller is still The Flash. Third and most important of all, Michael Keaton is Batman again!
PS5 or Xbox Series X? Personally, I don’t care. I’m not an early adopter so I would not be rushing out come holiday season to buy these new consoles. I still have a ton of backlog on my PS4 and Xbox One, not to mention countless more on my PS3 and Xbox 360. Plus, loads more on my PC (Thanks Steam sales!).
Finally, after months of speculation and a passionate global movement among dedicated fans, The Snyder Cut of Justice League will finally be released. Although not a strong supporter, I am still happy and curious on how this cut will deliver. I may be one of the few to have enjoyed Joss Whedon’s version. So I am curious to see this to compare and contrast. Hopefully, we can access HBO Max in NZ.
Wow! That’s all I can say after I’ve watched the demo. Another truly wonderful achievement by Epic Games. Very, very impressive. Now, I’m more than excited to play PS5. Although I would wait for it to get cheaper before I buy it. I still have lots of games to play on my PS4, Xbox One and on the PC.
2002 was the year. The movie — Episode II Attack of the Clones. And things are all good again in the galaxy. I enjoyed Episode II! With exciting space battles, a plot that was going along fine and best of all, less of that annoying Gungan. Just one thing that perplexed me, though. How did Anakin grow up so fast? In Episode I, he was still a kid and Amidala was in her teens. Now in Episode II they were both in their teens. How? Midi-chlorians gave him a growth spurt perhaps?
Love and hate. That sums up my relationship with Star Wars. I have loved the original trilogy since I was a kid. It was 1980 and I remember me and my Dad watching Empire Strikes Back on the big screen. I was amazed. I was enthralled. I didn’t take any bathroom breaks. I was equally shocked and confused when Darth Vader said that he was Luke’s father. How can that be? But never mind what he said but from that day onwards, Darth Vader has been my favorite villain and I’ve longed to have a lightsaber of my own.
Being in a lockdown gives me ample opportunities to catch up on movies and shows. Last night, we watched Knives Out. Directed by Rian Johnson (whom Star Wars fans will surely know) with a great ensemble cast that includes Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon and Christopher Plummer.
Thanks to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s YouTube channel, The Shows Must Go On!, we were able to watch the 25th Anniversary of The Phantom of the Opera held at the Royal Albert Hall. Sadly, as of this writing, it’s no longer available since the shows are just up for 48 hours.
