A Family Trip

When I was a child, my family took a trip to New Zealand. We flew from Tokyo to Singapore, and then from Singapore to Christchurch. We stayed at a hotel in the center of the city for the first two days, and did a lot of sightseeing. On the third day, we took a bus to Queenstown. The scenery was amazing! We stayed there for one night, and then we took a tour to Milford Sound. The tour guide was from New Zealand, but he spoke Japanese really well. We met a lot of nice people on the tour. I want to go back to New Zealand someday with my friends.  (111words)

Wonder Woman, This Means War, and other matters...

Gal Gabot
Chris Pine

Chris Pine
Tom Hardy
Reese Winterspoon

Today, I watched the trailer for Wonder woman, which is starting in June in the U.S.A. but in August in Japan. Chris Pine features in the movie, so I also watched This Means War, in which Chris Pine costars with Tom Hardy and Reese Winterspoon. This Means War is already 5 years old, but I still remember it well. The scenes where Chris Pine and Tom Hardy sabotage each other are very funny.

Paradise Lost

Today, I read Paradise Lost written in 1667 by John Milton. It is one of epics. Also, Fallen Angel Satan, Adam, and Eve appear in this story. He wrote the moments that Satan is fallen into the hell and Adam and Eve become corrupted. The most important rule of epics is to start with invocation and the center of happening. Invocation means the inspirational supplication to Muse.

Kingsman, and other matters...

ACTORS
Colin Firth
Taron Egerton

Today, we watched the trailer for the first Kingsman film, as well as the second one, which is yet to be released. The trailer didn't have many details, so I guess it's not completed yet. However, the film has an all-star cast, with Elton John, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Mark Strong, and Julianne Moore-and of course Colin Firth. The first Kingsman film was very entertaining, with its unusual blend of action and humor. By the way, I watched Hairspray again on my PC. Hairspray is the movie released about ten years ago.     (94words)
