Well, the challenge was to fix or change Mona Lisa according to how you envision it to be.
I rushed to finish this as I saw the contest at the last minute. Thought hard about whether or not to participate since I had to juggle this with work but what the heck, here we go. Say hi to Modern Lisa, she’s bored with perpetual posing for someone to paint her. “Get on with it” is also a note to self to hurry up to finish this. Photo frame is taken by me using my trusty old Fujifilm camera.
After all the hype, I finally get to watch The Batman starring Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz. It was nearly three hours long (Gosh, what’s with movies nowadays being this long?! Were they that bored during the pandemic?)
A shout out to Colin Farrell’s makeup artist. It was superb! I could not recognise him at all.
Anyway, let’s get down to the deets:
Sounds:  Mute it  Annoying but can live with it [✔] Adding to my playlist (it has an indie vibe to it)  Smash the repeat button!
Plot:  What plot?  Nothing special but enjoyable [✔] Good table talk (There were punny moments and subtle aha! touches. But some scenes were too draggy.)  Mind-blown Inception style
Graphics:  Eyesore  Not bad [✔] Good (Effective cinematography styles were utilised to bring out the mysteriousness of the film. A tad too dark at times.)  Eye-candy
Acting: Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano and Robert Pattinson are good at acting with Paul Dano standing out the most. Given the character’s colourful background, it is understandable that he can portray more, but the main leads did a fine job too. However, while I feel Zoe has the street Catwoman vibe, her acting does not top Anne Hathaway’s version. Anne pulls off the Catwoman’s character very well in specific memorable scenes. For example, this part when she screams and pretends – a total Catwoman thing to do:
Fun:  Fell asleep [✔] Kill time  I paid attention  What a roller coaster!
In The Batman, the pacing of the romance between Bat and Cat felt unnatural. Overall, I prefer Christopher Nolan’s movies, but we’ll give Matt Reeves’s version time to build.
