Michael Keaton is Batman again!

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!

Release of The Snyder Cut

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.

Star Wars Day Episode II

Episode III

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?

Star Wars Day Episode I

Episode V

Love and hate. That sums up my relationship with Star Wars. I have loved the original trilogy since I was a kid.

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.

REVIEW: Knives Out

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.

Missing the cinema

One of the things I miss since the lockdown started is going to the cinema. I’m a big cinephile and I make it a point to watch every big release on the big screen. Since I was a kid, going to the cinema is something I take seriously. When I like the movie, I’m totally glued to the screen. No bathroom breaks and popcorn munching for me. I try to catch each and every dialog for each and every scene. I can only relax after the movie. That’s how serious of a movie watcher I am.
