#MKMspoiler – Wonder Woman

Hi readers, it’s been a while since the last #MKMspoiler. Well, today MKM will give you the spoiler and review about Wonder Woman. Why in English? It is been a while also since the last English article. Now, let’s see the trailer first:

Anyway, Wonder Woman is having a good critics and rating so far. But personally, MKM kind of disagree. Well, let’s start with some positive things. First of all, Gal Gadot is stunning! No doubt! I think DC knows how to put girls in costume and make them gorgeous. First Margot Robbie, and now Gal Gadot. If you want to find your best Halloween girl, watch DC. Sorry Marvel, Sorry Scarlett Johansson.

The message of this movie is so strong. Unlike the previous movie (Suicide Squad and Batman V Superman), Wonder Woman movie gives the audience the message clearly. This movie is about how evil human is and how love can save the world. That is just beautiful.

Now, lets talk about Chris Pine. Don’t you think Chris Pine is too soft to be a soldier? He is handsome, body-ripped, but He doesn’t have the military face. Unlike Chris Evans in Captain America. “But he is not regular soldier, he is a spy.” Still…. This is world war 2, your face need to be more miserable than that.

I love how DC makes Diana Prince so innocent in this movie. But, the jokes in the boat scene between Diana and Steve, I think it just doesn’t work. Other than that, funny!

All the battle scene is great. BUT! The last battle with Ares is overly animated. DC did the same mistake as they did in Batman V Superman. DC could really learn from Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy how to display a battle between Alien/God/Mutant/Whataver. And I think, the front line scene is well-presented. The scene of Wonder Woman and her Shield, overly animated, but okay.

Ares personality is confusing! What is his motivation? To make Zeus realize that he is doing something wrong? Zeus is dead! Yeah, Zeus is our God in this universe. Why Ares bother to invite Diana to join him? Why? What is his ultimate goal? To ruin the world? Without his help, HE KNOWS that human will eventually destroy earth.

The goal of the villain is very important. If not, then the movie will be very cliché. There is a supervillain, then superhero kill him. Very cliché. Although, MKM loves how this movie conceal the identity and existence of Ares until the battle. For MKM, the moment Ares reveals his identity, it is kind of déjà vu with Harry Potter-Prisoner of Azkaban.

Well, overall, the plot is predictable. Maybe because we knows that World War 2 is over and we knows that Wonder Woman will be alive for next movies. It is taking so much time introducing the Amazons tribe, and…. They are not coming back on screen until the end. Just a waste of cuts.

And MKM hates the inconsistency. In Batman V Superman, we got so much easter eggs for Justice League. In Suicide Squad, we know that Harley Quinn and Joker is on the loose. But here, we got zero clue about the upcoming movie. Well, easter eggs and post credits are how to keep your audience watch your next movie, so… actually it is okay if you don’t watch this movie and jump to the Justice League. You can still keep up with the story.

But again. Wonder Woman is a new hero. And we deserve her. Thanks DC.

#PPL_Challenge Day 11 – Philosophy of Dab

Hi readers. So today is the day of Synchronized Walking Competition on my place of practicum. Here is the article. And, I am so proud of them.

db27a0e294df0aea40d993545397b183 (1)

In our last pose, we did dab. You know, the movement which is very happening these days. Of course, when it comes to taking pictures, we did dab again. But, one of the teacher there ask me, “What is this? Don’t do something that you don’t know the meaning.”

And I was like “Chill! This is just a dab!” (in my mind, of course)

But, that teacher was right actually. So I did some research about dab. So dab is actually nothing. Like literally nothing. Just a dance move which some athlete used it for their celebration. Here is the link.

Here is google’s definition about dab:

Untitled

So this is just another style of taking pictures beside “peace”, “thumbs up”, and “using snapchat dog filter”.

Winning something, and dab about it is so fun. But of course one day dab will be replaced with something else. So, lets find another trend with a great meaning. Like peace sign for peace of the world.

But you know what, Batara Kala (A monster from Javanese myth) did Peace before it was cool. Just like girls nowadays.

Screwed-Up-O-Meter

Hi readers, do you ever think that your life is so screwed up? But maybe you are not screwed enough compares to other people. How do we define screwed up? What is the standard of screwed up? Let me share to you: Screwed-up-o-meter. These are questions to measure your level of screwed up.

  1. What is left with you?
    If you are having a big problem but you still can go to some drinks, you are not screwed up. You still have money with you. If you still have friends with you, be grateful. You are not facing this alone. If you still have your clothes with you, you are officially not screwed up (I just read that screwed up also means perverted/raped).
  2. Who makes you screwed?
    If you are screwed by your beloved one, you are really screwed up. But if you are screwed by your girlfriend, your are not screwed up. It is your own fault, why are you dating her in the first place? Basically, if you are screwed by your own fault, it is not screwed up. You are just stupid. If you are screwed by your own fault consecutively, you are simply retarded.
  3. Where is your dignity?
    Can you face the public after that disaster? If people ask “what happened?” can you give them some reasonable answer? If you are totally humiliated, full of shame, and no one wants you, you fulfill the criteria of screwed up. But if you can lie to others, “I’m strong” (like girls usually do), don’t you ever consider yourself as screwed. You are just weak liar.
  4. When is the due for the solution?
    If you still have time to make it right, stop complaining! Do something! If the death is already sentenced to you, then congratulations, you are screwed up. As long as there is time, even just a flash, there is something can be done. Don’t give up. Don’t be panic. Don’t be stupid.
  5. Why are you still alive?
    Do you still have reason to be alive? If there is a reason, fight for it. Don’t give up. Life may screwed you up, but you are stronger than this. But sometimes, the only reason you are alive now is to be dead soon. So, die in the right time, dude. And please, die in style.
  6. How are other people around you?
    Can you find people that more screwed up than you. If there is one, then you are not screwed up enough. You are not in the highest level of screwed up. If you are not, then what’s the point of being screwed up? Your story will be forgotten. Your options are only being the most screwed up person in the world, or try to fix it.

Here is the thing guys. Don’t come up easily with the conclusion: I am screwed up. Instead, try to think of everything to make it better. Win this battle. Like Jesus. He fulfilled all the criteria of screwed up, but he wins!

 

Phew!

Hi readers. It has been so long. Well, busy will always be my reason. It is hard to be professional writer. Writing needs mood and dedication. I am trying my best to achieve that level.

Here is my story. First, I performed at Teater Jakarta. wooohoooo…. The play was: Dunia Maia. I acted as a drug junkie (kind of like that). Dunia Maia was a fantasy story that remind us to be optimistic and forgiving. It takes a lot of emotion and energy to be the part of Dunia Maia.

This was Nause (me):

bonus, this is me with my lovely girlfriend:

Yey,

and then, I helped my faculty to held a graduation. It was exhausting. I had no good sleep for days. this was me back then:

So, that is my dorm. and I was working on some videos.

And… I (had to) join an International Conference of Higher Education. Well, it was fun. But I love the previous conference which was two years ago.

Now, I hope i can write properly again. This blog is part of myself after all.

Solving Problem which is Involving Girls

Hi readers, especially boys, having a problem with girls is sucks. As boys, it is our responsibility to solve that problem. It seems hard. It seems difficult. Girls are complicated. I know. But in this article, I want to help you to solve your problem with girls. How to solve a problem when it is involving girls?

The answer is No, You Can’t. It is unsolvable. Face it. Girls are not creature that created to solve problem. They are procrastinators in solving problem. “I hate that girl. She is annoying.” “Tell her….” “Nah, I’m good…”

But In the other hand, boys are trouble-maker. They love swearing. Every time they find their friend, they mock each other. And they are doing it, for no reason at all. No hatred, No revenge, No such thing, just for fun.

In this world, boys are barbaric and girls are fragile. And you still hope that boys and girls can live happily ever after? There is no such thing as happy marriage. It is either they don’t talk about the problem or they don’t talk. Because when it comes to talking about the problem, the problem will get bigger. So, yeah. We just cannot solve the problem. Don’t you even dream about it.

I think Catholic is a great religion. It has a solution for this problem. Be a monk! You can avoid girl plus you get one ticket to heaven. But a lot of people refuse to be a monk. The question is, why did you refuse this kind of luxury?

I write this article to invite you, all of you to be a monk. If one day you have a problem with your spouse, this article will help you to strengthen your regret and pain.

This is not a threat, this is friendly reminder.
