The film Elvis

(notice there is Austin Butler within the list)

On Sunday, we went to movies. I really wanted to watch “Elvis” in theaters, as there must be great sound effects, also in theaters there is no distraction.

These days it’s hard to focus on movies at home, streaming is convenient but it also allows too much control, skip, fast forward, pause and stop watching in the middle. I have many movies in “continue watching”.

The film was 2 hours 39 minutes long but felt not long, there was no unnecessary scene, all of them explained or described something important.

It was made understandable, songs were great, and replication of stage performance were more than imagined.

All songs were the original ones, the actor was lip syncing but looked like he was actually singing. From some point I started looking at him as Elvis.

And Tom Hanks was invisible, he was a big greedy manager of King of Rock and Roll. I became hate him.

I don’t know if Tom Hanks has ever acted such self-centered, tricky, exploiting, and obsessed with moneymaking character.

I’ve read wiki, and learned the life of Elvis for some extent. After watching it it made it more sad story. Sad.

We listened to “If I can dream” after the movie. It’s simply overwhelming.

My partner has never listened to Elvis until he watch the film, now he became a big fan of Elvis, he is listening “If I can dream” and “Unchained melody” every night.

Hope I can go theaters again, good movies have many aspects and full of unspoken contexts, I like watching the same movie again and again, it’ll never be faded.


On Tuesday

With a cat

He claws a door of the room I’m working daily. If I let him in he’ll lay down and maintain himself, and sleep.

I was working, he was relaxing

And this morning, my mom said she got fever last night. We both thought she got Covid.

I took her to a doctor, she was supposed to get a booster shot today, but got fever so we asked for PCR test instead.

fortunately it was negative.

We were waiting outside of the clinic in a heatwave produced by ambient temperature of 36 degrees. as a preventative measure patient who has fever is not allowed to enter the clinic.

At home, Chobi our cat was sleeping on the floor in the cool room.
