Just to satisfy my OCD here’s a time-lapse facing the other direction at my gym :) Lucked out with the clouds, their movement turned out to be really fascinating. #saltlakecity#timelapse#timelapseclouds
Grade B+, I left with a smile on my face
We’ve been really spoiled by Marvel Studios and their next level quality of comic book movies. But if you imagine for a second that Marvel did not exist, then in that alternate universe Justice League would make you very happy. The part that matters is the character development and the team building and that’s what this movie is all about from beginning to end. This isn’t high art, this is the Toyota of comic book movies, it just does what we expect and does it good enough to enjoy.
I bought these just to see if they were any good and omg they are now my go-to headphones for everything. The AirPods just solve problems we forget we have like being practically invisible to the touch when wearing, sound as good as studio headphones and that carrying case I can slip in my pocket to recharge them. Definitely worth the price tag.
Grade B - Go for the acting
I have to admit the last set of trailers for this movie actually started to make the movie look kinda stupid. But I trust Kenneth Branagh as a director and an actor, plus I knew the story was good from seeing the 1974 version of the film. Once I saw Branagh’s character the quirkiness of the trailer made sense and was actually fun to a point. In the end though it was a pleasure to watch this huge ensemble of skilled actors and actresses working together, but sadly Branagh has yet to make the masterpiece he is capable of.
Quick time-lapse of salt lake valley from my gym in the morning - when I arrive at the gym the valley is black and only lit by street lights, but by the time I leave the sun has completely lit up the view.
Nintendo is totally killing it this year. Super Mario Odyssey is just as good as Zelda Breath of the Wild, which is saying a lot because Breath of the Wild is a masterpiece. To give you an idea, I started playing Super Mario Odyssey, blinked and two hours had gone by, I was already on the third kingdom, I wasn’t fatigued at all and I wanted to keep going. The pacing between rewards is just perfect, everything you do is just incredibly fun and the visual detail is gorgeous - it’s seriously hard to stop staring at it.
Grade A. Thor would have ended without this.
Marvel is doing a really good job of making their universe outside of Earth a lot more relatable, full of mystery and fun. I would say Thor Ragnarok is like the 3rd Harry Potter movie Prisoner of Azkaban because this movie is completely different than every other marvel movie and that’s the right move — BUT only this once. If they do it a second time we’ll get really irritated by it. But for now the bright colors and the crazy humor are just the jolt back to life Thor needed, or more frankly, Thor would not have lasted any longer if they didn’t let the bizarre Taika Waititi direct this one. #thorragnarok#movies#movienight#cinemark#saltlakecity
