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.
I was sceptical when I first read about the reviews, and I did not like Lola Bunny’s new design (she looks like an aunt lol). So, I had low expectations when I watched it. It turns out to be enjoyable and light-hearted. Anyway, without much further ado, here are the deets.
Sounds: [ ] Mute it [✔] Can’t remember so no comment [ ] Adding to my playlist [ ] Everyone, let’s sing!
Graphics: [ ] Eyesore [ ] Not bad [ ] Good [✔] Eye-candy
Plot: [ ] What plot? [✔] Nothing special but enjoyable [ ] Good table talk [ ] Mind-blown Inception style
Fun: [ ] Fell asleep [ ] Just to kill time [✔] I paid attention [ ] What a roller coaster!
I received my early birthday present today. I had been using Wacom Bamboo for the past five years until it has been giving me problems. I wondered what was the difference between that and this new drawing tablet. I could immediately tell the difference when I started using it, here is a list:
Writing on Bamboo is like writing on plastic whereas Intuos 5 has a more paper-like feel.
I have more control over the strokes of the brush.
There are plenty of refills for the pen nib and different nibs for different kinds of drawing.
It has a wireless option which might come in handy in the future (of course, it needs battery).
It has a touch option available.
The medium size of Intuos 5 is much larger than the medium size of Bamboo. Slightly longer than an A4 but just right for travels. I only wished that the drawing interface covers most of the tablet instead of having so much extra space around the drawing interface.
The grip of the pen feels steadier and it has much more pressure levels.
Let’s hope it lasts as long as or perhaps longer than Bamboo.
