Side Note

The free image-hosting service I used to use – Photobucket – changed its policies so now all the embedded images don’t work and I’m slowly reuploading the pictures and changing all the image links. In case anyone is wondering why the pictures in so many of the old entries don’t work. ^^

Avengers: Endgame

In short: Loved it. A very satisfying culmination of this Infinity Saga. The Russo brothers achieved something monumental in their direction here, managing to close the loop on almost all the original Avengers in a satisfying manner, while delivering action, drama, and humour throughout 3 hours.

Overall rating: ★★★★★
(This was almost 4.5 stars, but then I thought about what a feat of storytelling this is when you take everything into account and decided it’s worth 5.)

The rest of this is just going to be filled with spoilers. You have been warned. xD

Captain Marvel

We’re introduced to the titular character when she is only known as Vers (pronounced Veers), a member of Starforce, a sort of elite strike team of the Kree empire. Vers can’t remember who she really is, and is (of course) haunted by flashbacks to a life she doesn’t know. She is kidnapped by Skrulls while on a mission, and in escaping her captors, lands on C-53 – otherwise known as Earth. There, she begins to piece together her mysterious past with the help of one Nick Fury and her old best friend, Maria. She also begins to realise that the Kree-Skrull war may not be what she thought it was.

In brief: This movie is solid, but average.

Japan 2016 – Day 7

25 February 2016

Kanazawa

I don’t think doing Kanazawa as a day trip from Tokyo is a magnificent idea… But as I was on my own and had a JR Pass, I figured why not?


There were some pretty views of the countryside as the bullet train hurtled towards Kanazawa.

INUYAMA: Meiji-mura

I made my way from Tokyo to Inuyama to visit the Meiji-mura (literally “Meiji Village”)… And I wish I could remember the exact route I took -__-


Based on this picture, I was at some point taking the Nagoya Meitetsu line. hahah Continue Reading →

Japan 2016 – Day 5 (Part 1)

DISNEYLAND (Part 1)

I have nearly zero resistance to spending a day in Disneyland, especially when on my own in Tokyo.


Arrived at Disneyland with time to spare before the “Happiness is Here” parade so I bought myself a snack and settled down to wait.


“I feel like I’ve seen that duck before…”

People-watching at Disneyland is always fun.

Japan 2016 – Day 4

22 February 2016

… Yes, this is VERY late.

I didn’t do much of photographic interest on the fourth day. It was mostly shopping. I went to the 8-storey Uniqlo at Ginza, looked at a couple of art and stationery stores, and popped by the Mugiwara store at Shibuya. And yes, I bought stuff 8D

 


^ The iconic Ginza Wako building.
