TV Show: The Office 


My friend told me to check out the American version of The office. I started watching it and I really got sucked into it. Some of the episodes are definitely better than others. I’m not a big fan of some of the scenes they portray but all in all I really like the humor. 

One of those days | Redbull

I’m so tired today. Luckily Japan sells Redbull here so I grabbed one at a Konbini to get my adternoon’s work done! 

I found ‘Essence’ make up in Japan!

   
 Look at this beautiful summery blush I found! Essence is a German brand (I think… That’s what it says on the back of the products) but I found it in a Japanese import store. The prize was even a bit better than in Germany, probably because of the high taxes in the homeland. 

TV Show: Daredevil

  
I started Marvel’s Daredevil the other day after I finished Firefly. I’m just one episode in but I like it so far. I heard the his one is much better than the movie that came out years ago.

TV Show: DC’s Supergirl | Flash Crossover

Supergirl-JS-tvgm-812x522

Gotta be honest here: I started watching DC’s Supergirl just because a crossover with DC’s Flash was announced (Flash is my current favorite show, even though season 2 has so many breaks between it’s episodes it is quite frustrating).

To be honest, Supergirl is entertaining at times but I get rather bored by the fight scenes. I like the scenes where she is Kara or tries to conceal her identity but I have seen so many versions of Superman that I favor him over Supergirl. Clark only sometimes appears and you never see his face. Sure, CW  doesn’t want to meddle with other DC stuff or the movies that are out and the show is not about him but Kara.

When the Supergirl/ Flash crossover came around I was surprised to see how they resolved the DC universe issue. You guys might know that there are lots of other shows exiciting like Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and Flash but neither of them mention Supergirl in any way or that they have a Superman.

Barry Allen appears in Supergirl’s National City, rather confused by her not knowing who he is and being very irritated by the fact that she is an alien. The solution: As he is training to get faster in order to beat Zoom, he is actually so fast that he breaches the connection between the earths and enters into another earth, let’s call it Earth 3.

There are no Meta Humans, no Starlabs, no super heros or vigilantes on Earth 3 other than Supergirl and Superman. So Barry can basically reveal his identity to everyone without risking too much. He helps out Kara and then runs back to Earth 1 by the end of the episode. That episode itself was fun to watch.

Review: Firefly & Serenity

SERENITY_LOGO

firefly_0

Many people told me this was a great show, one of the best Science Fiction series ever made. Everyone I talked to was dissapointed that this show was cancelled and I can see why. The series was made in the early 2000s, but was cut after only one season. Firefly unites Science Fiction and Western and follows a crew of a spaceship named Sirenity.

SPOILERS FROM THIS POINT ON

I started watching Firefly a few weeks ago and finished off with the movie and I agree: there is much potential and I am very  glad they made the movie to wrap everything up and tie loose ends- But I am still kinda bummed Mal and Inara didn’t get together. I guess it was not really meant to be just yet. She stays on the ship for now.

Another thing that I thought was sad, was that Wash died. I always liked his character. I know that if Jayne would have been killed, people would have not cared so much and it is true: In war our friends and family die and Zoe, as the worrier that she is, is strong enough to bear it.

I am not overly bummed there are not more seasons, since I already know it got chancelled early. It’s a good series and they could have done so much more with it, but the excisting episodes are all great and very interesting. If you lice well made and good written Sci-Fi, check this one out!

Is Batman vs Superman worth it? Review without Spoilers!!!!

   
 I went yesterday. I spent 1700¥ on a movie ticket and 450¥ on snacks at the movies. And what I got was a Dawn of Justice folder and a 2 1/2 hour movie that let everybody down so far who was anticipating it.

Why did I go? Because I wanted to see it for myself! I have been deceived by the public opinion so often I am sick of just believing the stuff on the net or even what my friends told me about how they liked or disliked certain movies. Example: Everyone was raving about Antman and I thought it was so boring. 

And now hands down, without spoilers: it was not a terrible movie. Yes, it was no Captain America: Winter Soldier but it was also no Daredevil.

The movie especially targets DC Fans and since I have seen a few DC based shows like Smallville, Arrow, Flash and the such, I recognized many characters but for someone who has not read the comics, the connections might be hard to grasp. 

To be honest, at times I wasn’t sure what was going on. I thought that it might be because my native language is not English and there were only Japaneae subtitles. But I don’t think that was the problem. The movie moves fast and there is hardly time for character or conflict development. Batman and Superman don’t even interact for the better part of the movie. 

The Ben Affleck issue

That poor man has had probably his hardest year in a long time, since people were outraged he got the role as Bruce Wayne. I personally don’t like his acting but I have to say he convinces in this movie. He plays an older Bruce Wayne who has already fought for 20 some years as Batman. And I liked the scenes where he was just Bruce Wayne. He looks kinda chunky in his Batman suit, but I heard that that intended to let him look bulky to match Superman.

All in all, I don’t regret going. I was getting sick of people telling me it wasn’t a good movie. It was not the best movie they could have made: but not the worst either. 

If you are a fan and have seen all the previous movies, go and watch it: see for yourself. If you are very picky with your movies, I would suggest you wait to rent it or catch it on a plane some time.
