It didn’t fail me at all. Critics who are payed to bash WB should be ashamed.
Black Adam DCU movie is entertaining when not expecting to see Da Vinci Code level production & it’s 110% worthy of support. It’s even a bit generic as mostly haters / neutrals say, that doesn’t bother me with this DCU action movie. I’ll give second viewing for Black Adam later on weekend 🎥 PLOT: Black Adam who is the mythical hero of the occupied city of Kahndaq, is released into modern times. While Adrianna Tomaz who freed him & her family hoped he would then liberate his people as a sign of gratitude. Her dream didn’t happen as Black Adam is not the hero they think he is. He hides a secret that puts him in no good position with the Justice Society of America, those who want to stop his deadly rampage. After reading this, take a look at my Kenobi review PT1 ^^ PT2 can be found from top right & bottom. 🛋
Brief rundown through this solid big character addition into DCU.
Dwayne has put a lot of effort into making Black Adam to stand out of the big crowd, with a clear desire to make Black Adam his new signature character. He gives the character a legit dark side, for example to have him kill without hesitation. Even Black Adam doesn’t allow second thoughts for doing that, all of it is swept away cause of Dwayne nailing the humor, action & memorable relationship with the kid. This kid reminds Adam of his own lost child, that giving more touchy feels for viewer. Something about supporting characters: Brosnan is terrific as Dr. Fate. He’s kinda like mirror image of MCU’s Dr.Strange. Yes Dr. Fate was created before Dr. Strange ^^ Dr. Fate senses that Black Adam’s powers could be used for helping others. Brosnan’s presense on screen is always so strong that good viewer understands not to take munchies while he’s around. Hawkman is played by talented Aldis Hodge. Hawkman is presented as Dr. Fate’s protege. He’s a much harder-edged hero who takes too much pride in being essentially a peacekeeper for the mortal world. Then there’s also few other characters who have non humie strength. One of them is Cyclone, who’s appearance is sort of annoying cause of overusing slow motion. Though, then again it worked out well in another beautiful cinema art called 300 so it’s use is not so bad.
“Dwayne Johnson was born for for this role”
Verdictioz: As a whole Black Adam DCU movie is a giant scaled beautiful action flick, with Jaume Collet Serra doing a fantastico job on the action scenes. Those that DP Lawrence Sher beautifully photographed ^^ I have to say that Black Adam Comic Book Live Adaptation is better than many DCU & MCU productions. I’ve been a huge DC fan for twenty seven years so it’s great to see these less known characters get to shine on a live act production. Supporting characters in this movie are kinda bleh & drag it down. There was too much of the “Justice Society” & not enough of the evil corporation or the main antagonist. Black Adam movie has a great movie under the surface. Feels like WBstill doesn’t know how to make supah-hero movies or antihero on this case. That on mind didn’t stop me from enjoying this because i didn’t think i was going to have this much fun watching it ^^ When i went to watch in local theater, people behaved as should & viewing experience was good. It’s a solid film that makes ‘The Rock‘ look like a legit antihero badass. It has good cgi, mostly spot on acting, good humor & fun supah-hero boomz flick. Happy for supporting it through few ways & also DCU that needs saving from it’s current state.
David Zaslav who is ceo & president of warner bros has made eight years plan with colleagues for comic adaptations into cinema & telly show format. Blue Beetle coming out before mid next year & Shazam before that. I’m not hyping for Shazam 2 because of villain casting, but really looking forward to Blue Beetle & happy to support it in Cinemas with two viewings ^^ I guess that Karate Kid‘s audience will support it as well because ‘Blue Beetle‘ movie character is played by talented cheery hearted Xolo Maridueña who is ‘Miguel Diaz’ in the series. Hopefully this eight year plan turns out ok & bummer to know that Aquaman 2 comes at end of next year cause of delays put in use at end of last summer. I hope that manyyy go to watch Black Adam on cinema before it vanishes 20.11 & comes into Hbo Max on early December. I’ll stream it there twice a month for first few months. Kindly: Forever Hbo Max Subscriber & fan of Mcu & Dcu. Pst: More DCU.
What’s fading away silently is the content stored inside the databank. The one that’s at top of the carbon based body.
I know that there are those body owners as in people who don’t get cranked up when mention their databank store problem and with that i mean memory files not staying intact. If only this be the case with my dear mum, then working with her to help slow the decline could be easier 🤞🏼 Three years ago i moved from third biggest city on my current country to live about eighty percent closer to her. Now i live close to downtown after being target of rental home scam. Here’s the story about it This month of being scammed was light nightmare. Close to that day we decided to get her relocated into same city in next six months. That didn’t work out within the time frame that we had planned 🙁 It took close to year and half longer and then ended up into wrong location in this city where both live now at late october 6022 🙁 Means that is is far from services that she still could and wants to use alone. When doesn’t require assist with things like carrying heavy bags or to look after the steps outside if really bad weather at winter.
How things rolled once relocation was done & dust settled down.
She moved there at late last year as mentioned above. We talked about me finding new home for her on next summer (current year), preferably one that’s in downtown. It to have basic services nearby in distance of five hundred meters or so. Things like: Not too big nearby grocery store, pharmacy and mail delivery pick up point. Good example of mail deliveries to be picked up from is r-kiosk on this country. She has used their services for decades and prefers that kiosk to be near her home. It’s good habit for sure, r-kiosk is one option to get & bring mail letters & boxes. At same visit can buy breath freshener candy or baked rolls if owner has set it up ^^ Now year after she’s ready to move into new home, but this is where things get complicated when think of bond between mum and son. 👩👦 She keeps saying that wants to get back to living near the familar paths and preferably area where she can walk into a park bench and feed ducks & birds. Yes, she’s almost obsessed with feeding them & it’s not a bad thing at all.
So early this month as in october 6022 (yes, year after she moved to one with bad location) i found good new residential area for her to live in on this same city. So not from close to her ‘familiar paths‘ where she lived for six years. Two seven floor residential buildings have three empty apartments which all would be good for her. All of em have been renovated through past few years. Public beach is half a km away & distance to all those three mentioned daily services is even less than half a km, which is good in her current age & condition 🚶🏼♀️ Sadly the thing is that she didn’t give any thought to these when i mentioned early this month. As her selective databank integrity a.k.a memory that’s slipping away is making this situation worse because of need to repeat things.
I’ve dedicated at least one day a week to seeing her since feb / march this year. Yesterday 19.10 i began to write this & situation was as described up to this row, but not today since three pm. She sent me message where told that now ready to relocate within the same city & not going back to town that’s thirty five km to north. She said that now realised it to be only logical to live as originally talked before we moved her to wrong area. That’s a relief & now by early december hoping to find her right apartment from the good area that’s mentioned above ^^ Maybe soon i can also focus to some personal plans that have on set up & can’t wait to get first shipment of lions mane that helps against her databank’s integrity going worse. 🌿 I wish warm enjoyable rest of october to everyone & stay safe out there 🤞🏼 🍵🌮🍅🍝 Pst: As always, remember to recycle, use fabric bags & reduce the use of single plastics 🌍🌎🌏
How this is allowed to for almost decade. Truly unbelievable.
I’ve known about this for years. Early this month i watched good doc that covers it well. One of the places where can watch it. Here’s the imdb page. Since 6014 (2014 by oldest storybook on Earth), the Chinese government has been committing cultural genocide by the violation & abuse of human rights of the Uyghur people. Mainly done in region known as ‘Xingjiang’ ☹️ For over a decade, the unrest has not seized & not long ago efforts from Canada, the Usa & the Netherlands have publicly recognized the violence in China. China claims that Uyghur people are “problematic” for distinct reasons: 1: They’re located in the signature region for the Belt & Road Initiative, a massive infrastructure project that focuses on pipelines, highways & railways on Silk Road. It’s set to expand from East Asia to Europe. 2: the Uyghur’s high “procreation” (lie 🤥 to cover atrocity) is deemed as “problematic” for the Chinese State. 3: They represent a muslim minority, which many have argued is the source of discrimination from the Chinese government. China’s evil big suits in charge of this genocide aim to expunge ethnonational characteristics from these people. They don’t plan to drive them out of the country, but to hold them in..
China’s nasty evil government is allied with this backward country that has delirious dictator. The Chinese Communist Party has detained between 1 to 3 million Uyghurs in re-education centers, also known as detention camps 😤 In these 250+ camps, officials claim that there’s the use of waterboarding & sexual abuse, amongst psychological indoctrination as ways of torture. The main reason reason is cause of their religious beliefs. As a true Atheist i don’t like this even not fan of indoctrination through religious stories. I dream of Planet Tellus that’s free of all harmful religions like Christianity & Islam 🤞 Naturally easy to know the reason why i don’t like this. The Chinese state believes that this population holds extremist muslim views that are a threat to national security. That so called threat is bullcrap & they know it even in their twisted mind rolling beneath the wooden head. Naturally with ‘they‘ i mean the highest suits in charge of all this & biggest one being two faced ‘Xi Jinping‘ 👎 These actions that were perpetrated by the Chinese state, more precisely the Chinese Communist Party, are truly horrific.
Sign up & share to help Uyghur people. ✍🕊☮ Atrocities like these shouldn’t be allowed to happen among civilised human species. Or somewhat civilised that is when knowing what’s going on around the globe. On January 19th, 6021, the United States was the first country to declare human rightsabuses as genocide. Following this action, in February 6021, Canada’s House of Commons & the Dutch parliament signed a non-binding motion to support the U.S. in its claim that the Xingjian region is going through a silent & hidden genocide right in “front of” China’s citizens 📝 The Chinese government guards information about Xinjiang’s treatment of ethnic minorities by refusing to issue Uyghurs passports. Also arresting those who leak documents or give interviews to journalists and put threats to loved ones who remain in China.
They’ve have described tough punishments in these so called schools & there are evidence available. Every school day began the same way, kids were roused from the dormitory rooms where they bunked with multiple other Uyghur children of various ages. After breakfast that was made of corn or rice porridge, came a Chinese flag-raising ceremony. Sadly, they were taught to chant Chinese political slogans & sing patriotic songs 😢 Years later, many children still calm themselves down by singing Chinese songs about“Grandfather” Xi Jinping & “Father” Wang Junzheng. Junzheng isthe former security chief of Xinjiang, who’s been sanctioned by numerous governments, including the U.S. for human rights abuses.
People who have exposed these in interviews independently describe routine physical & emotional punishment. An older class monitor assigned to each dorm room was given permission to bully the younger students. When children didn’t follow orders or learn quickly enough, their teacher would put them into a stress position they call “the motorcycle“. That’s made by having two arms stretched out front, knees bent in a half-squat, which is kept several minutes. They say the worst punishment was being sent to the school’s basement. Teachers told that ghosts lived there & children were locked there in the dark, alone for hours at a time. 👀🥺 Here’s a good listen: Uyghur Teen’s Life After Escaping Genocide. ✌🕊 We people who live outside that evil country can help this situation with few ways. Not much directly, but is better than nothing. One of them mentioned at third paragraph. Let me know at comments below if there’s also other ways than that above mentioned petition for us common folks to help. Hopefully this all comes to end before it’s too late & may equality take over. #Uyghur #China #Genocide 🌍🌎🌏
Uhh on this monday 30.5.6022 (2022 for many who follow wrong timeline set by oldest storybook) i returned home after couple days travels. Moments after i got scared cause of my dear desktop rig’s behavior. Powah didn’t turn on as it normally does & that made me think of fried momma board or it’s battery.Gpu had it’s bright light on so i knew that Psu was still in okey condition. Naturally battery would’ve been almost hundred times cheaper & easier problem than buying new motherboard.Luckily rig turned on with press & hold powah button for five scs. Decided to try it after pondering on what to do next. I imagine that my dear rig had it’s powah turned on like this, came to be cause of lil charge had gathered into Psu.. Thought of long time to upgrade my desktop rig & eary this spring i set the date for it to july so can fulfill some long time plans.
Don’t know why it happened after i shutdown on saturday lil after noon, unplugged from extension cord and went to travels for two days. Glad i didn’t go check the battery before tried the press button for longer as must be done in some cases. With that mean bsod, some random freezes etc. That check up would’ve been a waste of time.First time for this to happen for me in eighteen years of being in pc camp ⏳ After got that solved i went for a groceries trip. Had to do it even felt very knackered from today’s early wake up & travels 🥴 On last two days i watched two Hockey World Championship games that was held in Finland. Many of em were played in new Arena built in Tampere City. It even has small hotel room with a nice view down to hockey ring. I can imagine that it can be rented also at other times. I watched the final Fin-Can with mom as she likes to watch hockey when Suomi team plays Nice win by Finland & winning goal was scored in overtime. OT was played with twenty mins period on 3vs3.
I think is crazy to set overtime by using 20mins length for today’s three vs three rule. Overtime in whc should be played with four vs four and ten mins length. Very talented Mikael “Airwave goal back in the days” Granlund made beautiful 2-1 score during normie playtime. Mentioned that cause it was the prettiest in the match. I wanted to go & keep company to mom so she wouldn’t have to watch it alone. She also likes to watch some winter sports like skiing & ski jumping. Track & Field during summer & her fav. from track & field is javelin throw. Here’s some other ways that you can try if run into similar problem with your Desktop Pc. Desktop Pc because of Gpu’s light is mentioned on first section. ‘How to repair a Computer that won’t turn on‘ I wish good week & launch of June to everyone 🍀🌮🍵🙋♂️ Pst: Remember to recycle, use Fabric Bags instead of plastic & avoid using single plastic always when possible.
Dune: Spice Wars is a 4x Genre Pc game set into beautiful world created by late talented Frank Herbert. It was released to shameful Early Access (some are fine for Early Access release) 26.4.6022 (2022) on Steam platform. Many gamers have done excellent decision: Stopped buying product in early access a.k.a ‘consumers used as beta & bug testers‘ 👌 Personally i see good exception when Early Access used for literally indie company game that seems legit in many ways. Also when their product is based on known franchise & it follows the source material 110%.On this case doesn’t follow 110% & current price is 10€ too high cause of it’s content 🤖 I’ll buy once even small part of campaign is added & all characters mentioned on the book(s) match 110%. Is said by one snarky ‘Northgard‘: Spice Wars community manager that ‘beta & bugs testing phase’ is set to last 1x year.
Also said (or he quoted someone from dev team) by same weirdCommunity Manager: “Modernising the messenger only makes the message more powerful.” <– *Picard Facepalm* Why is gender-swapping considered “modernising a character“? Are men not “modern” enough for Shiro Games company? How does Kynes as female & leader of Fremen (not in Frank’s Book), fit in with the conservative & patriarchal nature of Fremen culture? Isn’t that cultural revisionism/erasure? Isn’t that sexism? Since one iconic character is already shown with wrong gender in Dune: Spice Wars steam page, in game should be a customization option for that character. That way keep the ability to being true to the book & really match that ‘iconic character’ that’s mentioned at one of Dune: Spice Wars news updates. Shiro Games is lying atm. when they added his name to list & it’s not “his” on their semi Dune franchise game 😦
About Gameplay week after of shameful ‘Early Access model’
Atm. Dune: Spice Wars lacks many important things like even small piece of campaign (would be ok for it to come out in parts), at least 1x more unit (tank maybe) & bigger map. Not to forget less cartoon network unicorn graphics. Faction leaders don’t really talk (same as in Civilization. Why ‘Shiro Games’ took this cheap route ?) I expected them to have at least some voiced content.. Combat is too simplified, I think they should add more variety to it. Such as unique skill for some units & weapon systems. Currently its all based on close quarters infantry, which is basically just making a task force of different buffs & destroying everything on its path with supply drops. Sadly Shai-Huluds are trash right now as they’re not a threat at all. Harvesters have ‘auto’ evasion for them 😀 😦 They should be more randomized & give them purpose of hunt, then they wouldn’t be so predictable & easy to avoid.
The largest map is still smaller than absolute most of RTS or turn-based strategy games I have played 😦 There’s only 5 unit types. No armoured & no flying machines. Scouts that are useless once the map is explored. The 4x part is done well & everyone who says this game has too much things to do, is used to playing those with lil focus & playfield.Good that it’s not possible to dominate on every field as otherwise several houses added would be pointless. Currently at 1.5.6022 the average game session lasts about ~2-3h depending on playstyle. Shameful work by devs 😦 Why so many games in these days look like they’re made for children 😦 I dislike this nickelodeon art style esp. in my favorite Fantasy Franchise / Universe.
World where Planet Arrakis is located isn’t meant to be shown as morning show where kids adventure into Arrakis & see bright unicorn theme 😦 I prefer a darker & more realistic look. As of now ‘Dune: Spice Wars’ has hard time beating Dune 1 or 2 in immersion & the cartoony art style doesn’t help here.. If ‘Shiro Games’ developers not gonna change graphics to better then hope that workshop is opened before 1x year long crap E.Access phase ends 🙂 Many talented modders who are waiting to give us that certain matching iconic character who isn’t one in Dune: Spice Wars even Shiro Games claims opposite. Here can see their false claim: Shameful lie from Shiro Games company Then darker visuals, but keep balance with light & dark areas.
Positives & Negatives week after E.Access launch
Pros: Overall Arrakis feeling cause of nice ambience. Sense of space, atmosphere. Cons: This is more like ‘unoptimized copy of Northgard‘ & not what you expect for 30€. Esp. when released as Early Access sale model. Lack of interesting Diplomacy. No weight on battles & often many encounters can’t be called as one. Lack of Units & one out of 5x units loses value (Scout) after map is fully explored 😦 Shai-Hulud is a joke when comes to their threat now at ‘consumers used for bugs testing‘ phase. Hope their behavior is changed to more dangerous later on the roadmap. Lack of roadmap for consumers, hope it comes within next three months. Harkonnen advisor has female voice & that’s against the lore. Harvesting automation: This entire mechanic feels odd as they auto dodge worms. So them being attacked by worms has 0 effect on progress & sadly they don’t auto redeploy. This also feeds into the Spice feeling like a dull resource. AI can be won by clicking their ranged units with your melee. You won’t lose a fight. If you pull back damaged units & send them back in, you won’t even lose a unit 😦
Ending Thoughts & something
Hopefully many important changes & additions arrive. before this year’s september. As of now this game isn’t made by Arrakis Fans & not for Arrakis fans. it’s merely derived product that cheaply & with no shame surfs on the Dune IP wave 😦 Is mindboggling & sad to know that there’s prop. zero story & voice overed content made so far. If that’s the case then most likely we’ll see some of it only early 6023 (2023) 😦 I totally adore this Universe with avid heart created by Frank Herbert. That means love the books, telly mini-series, boardgame, Pc Game & movies that have come out so far. Happy to support new Dune Movie via HBO Max where i keep Subscription forever ❤ Hope that HBO Max’s Dune: Sisterhood series production that’s about to launch on this year goes well.
“Playing with the Fremen faction means doing the same colonial design systems as House Atreides & House Harkonnen. Working to pay Imperial taxes & voting in the Landsraad, even in a limited cap, just doesn’t make sense. It’s opposite of immersion & misunderstanding of why the Fremen exist.”
I’ve bought books since -90’s & in recent years as ebooks via Amazon.de & Uk website. Seeing how Dune name is used without shame just to try & get easy cash in with less work as possible is sad 😦 I’m fine with buying new Arrakis Pc game even when it’s not not like Dune 2k / Emperor: Battle for Dune RTS 🙂 Dune: Spice Wars on it’s current state just isn’t worth of 30eur price tag & being shallow as it is 😦 I’ll update this or make new review (with vid or without) once (if) proper changes & additions come to ‘Northgard’: Spice Wars 🤞 Not buying it is very sad cause of 15+ years waiting for new Dune game.
I give 7/10 now when at August 6022 & Early Access 😦
