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.
I’m back to work from short breaks. Yesterday, I spent my time off watching Ghost in the Shell and bought the whole series of Miss Peregrine books by Ransom Riggs. I enjoyed watching Ghost in the Shell even though the controversial of “whitewashing” of the main character played by Scarlett Johansson. The storyline of the movie is fast-paced, and the effects are good especially the Geisha robot. The Geisha robot beautifully designs and love the scene where it kills the Hanka scientist in the restaurant.
The claw bend the other way around 😦
I was excited to receive and unboxing Darkhawk figure. As usual, I need to wait at least two weeks for it to arrive. But after unboxing it, I notice that his claw are so flimsy. It’s so soft, and one of the claw bend the other way around as can be seen in the photo above. I’m thinking to glue the claw together. Overall the figure is good.
Last night, I watched the Power Ranger with my brother. Personally, I like the original TV series more compared to the movie, even though the technology not as good as now. The storyline quite slow because they need to introduce all the characters and I hope the next movie will be much better. Overall, the movie is fun to watch.
I’m so happy the original TV series Kimberly (Amy Jo Johnson), and Tommy (Jason David Frank) made a cameo in the film. I remember watching those series with my brother when we were kids.
