Andor is such a phenomenal series. It presents the Star Wars universe in such a fascinating and eerily compelling manner. It becomes easy to forget that beyond the battle of balance ongoing between light and dark and at times the same forces, there exist the side of the universe that doesn’t have the privilege to engage in such ideological reflection. Within that exhibition, Andor feels like a breath of fresh air. While the Jedi and Sith embody the core iconic appeal of Star Wars, the meaning of Star Wars lies more entrenched in it’s universe and the societies conflicting and harmonizing within.Continue reading
What a tragic and compellingly melancholy series yet one constructed on pillars of hope. Pain is an experience that connects us all yet by its nature see’s hearts deviate in division. Where one see’s a path to move forward on, others see a wall to destroy and break down. Mistakes befall us all. Failures embrace us all. Death awaits us all. Equally. And without bias. Just as we are born into this world together, we live in it together and disappear from it together. The true tragedy within Arcane isn’t the destruction caused but the compassion that was lost in the chaos of life. Perception, without a doubt, is one of the most powerful… and most dangerous abilities ever to exist.Continue reading
Based on the MOBA video game Dota 2, Dragon’s Blood is a series about balance, possibility and the ever changing reality that resides within the boundless entrenches of existence. Within the world’s creation, its life was split across several souls that now embody Dragons. A force that seeks to reshape existence in their own image coverts these souls and the possibility within them. A Dragon Hunter finds himself caught up in this pursuit where they are subsequently forced to engage in aspects of creation they would otherwise have been oblivious toward. Also within the center of this existential interplay between conflicting ancient forces is the Princess of the Moon.Continue reading
I have been following The X Factor Australia Season 5 more closely than any other X Factor season I have watched before, mainly because of one artist, Dami Im, now the champion of The X Factor Australia 2013. Dami Im has captured so many hearts of people in Australia and around the world with her soaring, piercing, dynamic and embracing vocals which resonates through your mind long after her songs have ended. She is able to bridge different genres of music with her own style effortlessly and along with the unique outfits she dons during her performances she has become a music icon already in many eyes.
Was watching The Voice US Season three and this performance by Amanda Brown completely blew me away, how amazingly brilliant and incredible it is, wow, just wow, I ABSOLUTELY loved it.
Been waiting for this since last year and it was so worth the wait. Ended up waiting for all 10 episodes to air before I started watching it because it would have been just too painful waiting a week for each episode once you have gotten that initial taste, that glorious, engrossing and epic initial taste. And what a season this was, the new characters introduced and the existing characters developed on, all of them were handled amazingly and those shock-awe moments, man were they unexpected and sudden, I certainly did not expect most of those twists to occur at those times. Still I miss Ned Stark severely, ah, he was such a fantastic character.
Oh goodness, I just had to. That 10 second scene in the season two finale of The Walking Dead (TV series) was so amazingly awesome. I have been hoping so much for such a character and I thought that it would continue remaining a fantasy, but such a character actually appeared! Ah it’s surreal.
Well now that was one intense episode. While I didn’t watch the full episode (a shame it doesn’t air in Australia, at least I watched most of the season when I was in New Zealand), I youtubed the important bits =). It was great seeing all the contestants again in that opening song.
It’s almost time for the climatic conclusion of this great show (what can I say, I’ve been captured and inpsired by this show) and to find out just who the American viewers voted for to win the competition. The prelude to the final show-cased the final three contestants performing twice to impress the viewers.
It would be a crime for Game of Thrones and epic not to be used in the same sentence, because that is basically what Game of Thrones is, epic; intensely and powerfully epic. Adult fantasy describes it well at it’s core, but there is a lot more going on. The story, characters and the Game of Thrones world are rich and all those elements come together magnificently in the series.
