This course is irreversible. This action is irreversible. But Zack Snyder was able to. Okay, by now numerous people have seen the much-awaited #SnyderCut. You’re lucky if you have HBO Max. If not, pretty sure you subscribed to HBO Go and experienced problems accessing the app on March 18, the day Justice League 2021 premiered. That was expected so I decided to wait a while. And since the #SnyderCut runs for four hours and two minutes (three hours and 52 minutes on HBO Go) and I was working over the weekend, I took my time to finish the film. Like everyone else, I also have my thoughts on the long-awaited #SnyderCut. But before that let me share my brief thoughts on Justice League (2017). I mentioned in my review that that instalment of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) has a great story. You know resurrecting Superman and all. We all saw that coming and I am fine with it. Sadly, they failed at the execution probably because of extensive re-shoots. It was uneven making me …
Have you heard the news? A couple of days ago, our family friend dropped by and handed in a dozen doughnuts. He was driving through our area and saw something new. He tried it out, got excited and thus, had two boxes of doughnuts to spare. If you live in or near Visayas Avenue, it might not be new to you. But since the ECQ, I haven’t gone out that much. I had groceries delivered through our doorstep and only buy from the mobile palengke that passes by our village. In this blog post, let me share with you some Visayas Avenue discoveries!
During the quarantine last year, more and more people turned to online streaming specifically to Netflix. There was a time that my social media feed was full with a list of the best documentaries. I have watched a few, but I did not review or share any in this blog. But over the weekend, I was able to watch a documentary which I feel needs to be seen by everyone. It’s called “Posible: SPED Students’ Pursuit of the Arts”, a 45-minute documentary presented by Special Achievers.
With the current state, I only leave the house for basic needs. Sometimes I don’t even go out as more and more things can be completed online. Now, this got me thinking. What about the businesses that started their operations in late 2019 and early 2020? I noticed that the cafes and restaurants I frequent in our area are slowly showing up on food delivery apps. So whenever we are too lazy to cook (plus LPG is not cheap), craving or have the budget, we would order via foodpanda or search the app and drop by the shop if we are not sure what to get.
I am not familiar with Alice in Borderland (Imawa no Kuni no Arisu). I only learned about the live-action series when I received a YouTube notification about a new Netflix trailer. And even without checking it, I knew I was going to stream it judging by the title. When the day came, I did a little research and found out it is a Japanese suspense manga series written and illustrated by Haro Aso. Alice in Borderland also has a 3-episode original video animation, and now, we have the live-action series produced by Netflix and directed by Shinsuke Satō. Yes, Shinsuke Satō, the person who directed numerous live-action film adaptations of manga and anime such as The Princess Blade (2001), Gantz (2011), I Am a Hero (2015), Bleach (2018), Inuyashiki (2018), and Kingdom (2019).
