The RDD Star Wars May the 4th and FCBD Contest Giveaway

Has it already been 9 years since Red Dot Diva first started blogging about pop-culture and her passion for geeky events? Time flies when you are having fun!



The RDD Facebook Page reached over 600 Likes last week! Yes, it took awhile to arrive at this number, as Red Dot Diva generally prefers a more subtle approach to self-promotion. The number of FB Likes may be small compared to all the influenzas influencers out there, but this achievement means a lot to her.

She would like to thank everyone for their interaction and support all these years. Hello, to the newbies who have recently discovered her blog and social media presence as well. Without a core audience, Red Dot Diva might as well be talking to a brick wall. So, A Very Big Thank You!

To commemorate these 600+ Likes, Red Dot Diva has an online contest to giveaway a combination of Star Wars related and Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) goodies! After all, this coming Saturday marks both May the 4th (Star Wars Day) and FCBD.

Join the contest by completing the following steps:

1. Follow Red Dot Diva on Twitter and/ or Facebook2. Share the contest post on your Twitter and/ or Facebook timeline. Please ensure that the post is public.
3. Answer the contest question below by posting in the Facebook post's comment box, or a tweet with a mention to @reddotdiva:

QUESTION -- What is the title for Star Wars Episode IX, and when is Free Comic Book Day?

Diva's Movie Review: I Want To Eat Your Pancreas - Overly Melodramatic But Will Still Make You Tear Up

Before the anime version of Yoru Sumino's novel I Want To Eat Your Pancreas, there was a live action adaptation with a slightly different title. It was called Let Me Eat Your Pancreas, starring Minami Hamabe and Takumi Kitamura in the lead roles. Red Dot Diva caught the tearjerker during a long haul flight, and thought it was engaging even though typically sentimental in that Japanese way. What is it about teens dying from terminal illness in several Japanese tragedies anyway?

The animated film I Want To Eat Your Pancreas directed by Shinichiro Ushijima is no less sentimental. In fact, Red Dot Diva found it overly dramatic, and repetitive in many instances (it seems that the novel was like that too), making the movie longer than necessary. Still, it had its moments, and the odd couple's sentiments about mortality, love and friendship were sincere and heartbreaking.

As you can probably guess by now, the bloodthirsty title, I Want To Eat Your Pancreas is not a horror movie or a film about the zombie apocalypse. Nope, it is actually a romance story about two people of opposite personalities. Sakura, a bubbly girl suffering from a life-threatening illness, decides to make use of her limited time on earth completing her crazy bucket list of things to do. Not wanting to become a shadow of her sickness, she strives to it a secret, and during her journey through life, she decides to befriend a seemingly boring, moody, anti-social guy from the same school that no one seems to like, and whose name remains a mystery till the last few minutes.

Win a HBO 2018 Calendar to Help you Countdown till Game of Thrones' Final Season Airs in 2019


Lots of things happened in the Season 7 finale of HBO's award-winning series "Game of Thrones".

What is the repercussion of the liaison between Daenrys and Jon Snow? Is Tormund still alive? Will there be a brother vs brother, Drogon vs Viserion showdown? Who will sit on the Iron Throne when the series ends?

Unfortunately, it will be more than a year before fans will get to know the answers. The final and 8th season of "Game of Thrones" will air only in 2019. The actual premiere date has not been announced yet, but Season 8, which consists of 6 episodes, will air on HBO Asia the same time as the U.S. telecast.

The wait seems interminable, so what can fans do in the meantime until Season 8 premieres?

Diva's Recap of "Ghost in the Shell" 14-Minute Preview (Spoilers!)

At a small "Ghost In The Shell" fan event last Friday, 17 March 2017, Red Dot Diva had the chance to watch a 14-minute sneak peek of the live action movie in 3D.

Despite the furore over the casting of Scarlett Johansson as Major (which is based on Motoko Kusanagi in the manga by Masamune Shirow) and "whitewashing" of the popular franchise, the film looks visually stunning. It took just a few minutes for Red Dot Diva to feel immersed in the near-future cybernetic world, and she wished it was a full movie screening instead. 

"Ghost In The Shell" is a story about a cybernetic anti-terrorist field commander Major, who is determined on going after a hacker called The Puppet Master. There may be a larger purpose to The Puppet Master's plans to take control of Hanka Corporation's artificial intelligence programs, and Major begins to uncover her past and question about her own existence.

For the live action movie, instead of The Puppet Master, the main enemy is cyborg ghost-hacker named Kuze (Michael Pitts). Or rather, Kuze will a mix of the two anime characters in the upcoming film directed by Rupert Sanders.

Join AsiaPop Comicon's Contest and Win A Chance To Attend the Hollywood Red Carpet Premiere of Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War"!

Now that WB Pictures/ DC Comic's battle of the superheroes movie "Batman v Superman" has been released at the theatres, fans are now eagerly looking forward to the other team showdown which will happen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As a follow-up to the last Avengers movie "Age of Ultron" as well as "Captain America: Winter Soldier", the next Marvel superheros movie "Captain America: Civil War" will see friends become foes.

Upon facing a call for accountability from the collateral damage caused by the battles with the aliens, Ultron, plus the costs faced by yet another international incident, Tony Stark/ Iron Man pushes for a government body to oversee the actions of the superheroes. In an effort to protect his friend Bucky coupled with his desire that the superheroes should be able to protect humanity without restraints, Steve Rogers/ Captain America goes against Tony Stark, causing a fracture between the former team members.

Go to Raffles City and Win Exclusive Oscars Merchandise as HBO Asia Gears Up For Live Telecast of the 88th Academy Awards


Are you one of those rooting for Leonardo diCaprio to finally get his Oscar this year? Or do you usually favour the dark horse of the list, like Bryan Cranston for his lead role in the autobiographical movie "Trumbo"?

Perhaps you aren't so bothered so much about the winners and losers but love to go googly-eyed on the fashion choices made by the celebrities as they walk down that long red carpet.

Celebrities, their guests and entourage are set to descend on Hollywood's glitziest awards event of the year - the 88th Academy Awards (or better known as the Oscars Awards) - tomorrow evening at 28 February U.S.A. time. Comedian Chris Rock is the host for the ceremonies. With the controversy about the lack of diversity plaguing this year's Oscars, Red Dot Diva is most curious to see how many more folks Chris Rock will insult while he's on stage.

If you have already taken leave from work and planned for a Monday morning Oscars watching party, HBO Asia will be bringing to you the award show LIVE from the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood.

Just tune into their cable channel on Starhub at the following times:

- Red Carpet arrivals - 8 AM (repeat telecast 7 PM)
- Award show - 9:30 AM (repeat telecast 8 PM)

Peek into the World of the Peanuts Gang at the Singapore Philatelic Museum


There is something special about old-fashioned letters and stamps. Enveloped within a hand-written note or a letter scripted using a manual typewriter is the sense of anticipation and touch of romance layered with an air of mystery, invoked by the postage stamps of various places which one have not yet been.

The Singapore Philatelic Museum (SPM), located at a historic building near Fort Canning, pays tribute to the world of stamps and mail with archives of philatelic material. In recent years, the museum has rebooted itself by curating some of its marketing and exhibits by giving it a pop-culture slant.

One of its current exhibition is a ode to the popular syndicated comic strip "Peanuts" and its creator, Charles M. Schulz and launched in conjunction with "The Peanuts Movie" which opened at local cinemas last December. Incidentally, 2015 was also the 65th Anniversary of "Peanuts".

If you are a fan of the comic strip, you would already be aware that a whole lot of letter-writing is featured in the comic, with many of the characters interacting with family, friends and yes - even Santa - through snail mail. So, it is terrific that SPM is hosting the "With Love from Snoopy, Charlie Brown & the Peanuts Gang Exhibition", by bringing this aspect of the comic strip to life.

Celebrate SG50 at The Fullerton Hotel with a Gorgeous 3D Light Show!


The Red Dot Island's 50th Birthday is next weekend, and there is already a long list of free SG50 activities and places of interest for locals and tourists to join in the big birthday bash.

Red Dot Diva says you can add one more to your list - the very special SG50 3D Light Show at the Fullerton Hotel, a heritage building with a 87-year-old history. The original landmark, the Fullerton Building, was constructed in 1928, and starting from today 1 August, the grand old lady will be dressed in fancy colours for 9 days.

Last night, Red Dot Diva was invited to a preview of the light-up called "A Celebration of Our Heritage". She had mistakenly thought the registration was at the hotel itself, and when she could not find any signs leading to the event, she asked for help from the nearest hotel personnel she could find.

Where You Can Nab Those Freebies on FCBD 2015!

FCBD (Free Comic Book Day) is a day away!!!

This year, participating shops have been a little late in their respective announcements, plus there aren't any special overseas guests heading to Red Dot Island for the weekend. However, Red Dot Diva has a rundown of who's giving out what (other than FREE comics, of course!) this coming Saturday, 2 May.

One will also notice a strong Star Wars theme featured in this Saturday's activities. That is because the island will also be celebrating Star Wars Day, i.e. May the 4th slightly early over the weekend! (More on that later in a separate article!)

Comic book geekdom has been getting more and more mainstream, thanks to popularity of superhero movies and TV shows. Red Dot Diva has noticed that the number of people participating in FCBD has grown significantly with each passing year.

The free comics given out on FCBD are not unlimited in supply, so they do run out in some places quicker than one can imagine. Therefore, if one is intending to set aside Saturday especially for an island-wide FCBD fun-run, DO plan your schedule carefully!

Here's a list of hot spots where one can head to to get your free comics:

Marvel and Subway Singapore Present "The Earth's Mightiest Combo" for "Avengers: Age of Ultron"!

Subway Singapore's follow-up promotional collaboration with Marvel for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" must be one of the most fun marketing collaborations Red Dot Diva has seen in awhile! The fast food sandwich franchise had first worked with Marvel to promote "Guardians of the Galaxy" last year.

All fans need to do is to join a simple contest at Subway's Facebook page, and 200 lucky winners would have the opportunity to be amongst the first to watch the long awaited sequel on April 21, 8 PM at Shaw Lido.! All you need to do is tell Subway in the page link above, what you would do if you are an Avenger, and hashtag your answer with #IfIWereAnAvenger.

Also, everyone knows that being a superhero is a tough job, which can make any meta human/ deity/ alien/ mutant very very hungry. Or in the Hulk's case - hangry. And you won't like him with his hangry!
