Ghost in the Shell

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.

Unboxing Darkhawk

 

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.

Power Rangers

Power Rangers 2017

 

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.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Today I decided to take a break for a couple of days in April. I’m so burned out with the workload. I wish I can spend my time travelling and read books.

On my free time, I read novels and currently, I’m reading a book called Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I love the book and decide to collect all the series.

I watched the movie version last year and before that I have no idea the existence of the book. The reason I watch the movie is because I love Tim Burton films. His thoughts and works are so unique and brilliant. Its suit me well because I think people would agree to say that I’m also a peculiar person. I remember when I was an undergrad student, one of my friend felt weird when I bought Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride: An Invitation to the Wedding movie book. I don’t care what people think of me being weird liking Tim Burton works.
I hope there will be more movies to come based on the book series and Tim Burton films.

Beauty and The Beast

 

This year so many interesting movies and Beauty and the Beast is one of them. I love Beauty and the Beast, but I’m not sure whether to watch the life-action movie starring Emma Watson.

Personally, I don’t see her as Belle because she did not has the beauty or grace like the character. I’m not saying she is not pretty, but something is missing that I cannot point out. I like the original voice actors compare to 2017 life-action.

Update:

I might not see the movie at all in Malaysia because of the Gay scene.

Harley Quinn and the Joker

I’m over the moon. Finally, I receive Harley Quinn and the Joker statue. I waited patiently for two weeks. I’m very pleased with the sculpture quality, and the most important that the statue is in good condition and not broken because of the transit from the US to Malaysia.

I was lucky because I get to buy this figure because Amazon does not ship this statue to my address anymore. The same thing happened to my other order of Darkhawk. Fuh… luckily I manage to pre-order them earlier.

Amazon BIGTHANKS

I have to admit that when Amazon offering $8.36 off of (almost) any orders over $50 with BIGTHANKS coupon only for one day (22 February) very tempting and I took the opportunity to pre-order another Joker Bandai action figure. My previous order of the Joker finders keyper lost in transit, and I decided not to accept a replacement for that.

Earlier I did pre-order Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Legends Series Darkhawk figure even though I’m not familiar with the characters, but I like the character design especially the awesome wings. I can’t wait to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 in May.

I wonder how much avid collector spend cash on their collection. As for me, I buy at least one figure for each month. I just collect whatever things that attract my attention.
