The Batman

Ant, a Batman fan but not a comic book reader, saw The Batman (2022). It was very different than the previous movies like Christopher Nolan's. Slower pace, longer, less actions, etc. 6/10. Tim Burton's and Christopher Nolan's versions were better. Also, this one was like Fox's Gotham too which was enjoyable. Ant was hoping to get into it when starting watching Batman Begins. :/ There is also a deleted scene of Joker (also saw this standalone movie on Caturday -- it was OK too [random laughter])! It can be seen on YouTube and HBO Max.

Beijing's Winter Olympics 2022 Poll

2008's ceremonies (skipped most of the long speeches, interviews, and flag parade) were still the best to this old Chinese insect. However, this insect doesn't watch many sports. Also, Bing Dwen Dewn is sad. Hopefully, Paralympic's will be good next month!
