At first, when I read about the Mummy reboot starring Tom Cruise, I am not too excited to watch the movie because I think the original the Mummy in 1999 is good enough, no need to reboot the film.
I love The Mummy (1999) and The Mummy Returns (2001) because of Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz characters. Their chemistry is good, and humour element is flawless. But in this new movie, I think the Director and Tom Cruise trying to include the fun elements that look weird at some points.
The only reason I watch the movie is that I like the character of Princess Ahmanet played by Sofia Boutella. Initially, I thought she would be the new Anck Su Namun replacing Patricia Valesquez. I love Patricia Valesquez as Anck Su Namun. Both of them have the beauty and grace to be the Egyptian princess.
Overall I enjoy watching the movie, and it packs with actions, but I would love to see Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) more compared to Tom Cruise character.
This Marvel’s Angela action figure was a belated birthday present from my brother.
He knew about me wanting the figure when we go scouting around for action figures at Toys”R” Us.
I’m so happy to add the figure to my collection. The quality is good for the price.
Thank you so much, bro!
Finally, I can watch Wonder Woman after seeing the promotion poster every time I go to the cinema.
I enjoy watching the Wonder Woman and my brother also like the movie. I think Gal Gadot nailed the character well, but I’m a bit disappointed by the death of Antiope played by Robin Wright.
Overall I’m happy with the action and the storyline of the movie. Looking forward to another movie from Wonder Woman. Thinking to buy Wonder Woman action figure to add to my collection.
I bought the Joker S.H Figuarts Suicide Squad on Labour Day. On that day, I went to Queensbay Mall, Bayan Lepas in Penang. Usually, when I go to Queensbay Mall, I always go and survey any new or exciting action figures in a shop call Robot Monster. I’m so happy because I found the Joker character and able to purchase the figure earlier before somebody else bought it. I did cancel my pre-order from Amazon. For me, the price almost the same with Amazon but I save quite a lot on shipping.
I’m so happy to have both S.H Figuarts Harley Quinn and Joker. The quality of those figures are good and the face looks like the actor itself.
On Wesak Day, I got a day off from my hectic schedules. I took the opportunity to watch Alien Covenant. I’m not a fan of the Alien franchise, but I quite enjoy watching those previous movies. But the Alien Covenant is quite disappointing because for me it lacks thrilled and I almost fall asleep for the 30 to 45 minutes waiting for the action to come. The movie has too many dialogues and unnecessary drama from the characters especially from David and Walter (Michael Fassbender). Overall the movie is okay, but it lacks actions and the alien.
April is the month to pampered and Splurged. I bought this Mafex Suicide Squad Harley Quinn as a birthday present for myself. I already bought the Bandai S.H Figuarts Suicide Squad Harley Quinn, but I cannot resist the temptation to buy another version of Harley Quinn as I saw it already available at Play-Asia website and only two left in stock. The price almost the same with Amazon the shipping much cheaper because of the item ship from Hong Kong.
I made a comparison between Bandai and Mafex Harley Quinn; I noticed that Mafex is more detailed compared to Bandai because Harley Quinn from Bandai missing tattoo on her stomach and those tattoos around her legs also not clear compared to Mafex brand.
Last night, my brother and I watched the life-action film of Beauty and the Beast. Luckily the film can enter Malaysia without any cut. I won’t go and see the film in the cinema if there is any cut because of the LGBT contents.
While watching the film, my mind tried to remember the classic animated scenes and notice some changes in the life-action. Overall the film is entertaining, but I noticed that the visual effects, in particular for the background, look a bit off for a big budget film like this. Emma Watson singing voice not too bad, though I still think that she is not the suitable actress to play the character.
