  1. Sorry, the video did not embed. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/fbVv2zzdevQ
  2. During lockdowns here in nz, i decided to create an opening ceremony on the game minecraft. Thought i would share it with you all as i now have no use for it. See if you can spot my recreations of some iconic ceremony moments. Comment if you see them. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/fbVv2zzdevQ" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  3. I imagine that Paris will do something similar to London with their cauldron. i would love to see a return to the more traditional cauldron design, similar to that of Barcelona.
  4. Interesting that i did not see this in the media other than on here. Salt Lake City 2002 - Athens 2004 - Turin 2006 - Beijing 2008 - Vancouver 2010 - London 2012 A good set of games to preside over..... And then there was one..... one living IOC president Thank you Dr Rogge, you done a 'superb job'
  5. Maybe i watched too many ceremonies on youtube during all of NZ's ongoing lockdowns that my expectations were too high. I have watched every ceremony from 1964 onwards so i guess i know what grabs my attention and what does not. I think all 4 ceremonies have been amateurish compared to all of their predecessors. i am sure most members here would agree. just my thoughts though.
  6. I am not saying Japan as hosts have done a bad job. They have done a fantastic job organising these games. All i am saying is that covid or no covid the ceremonies have been amateurish and pretty boring/bad as ceremonies go. Nagano also was bad.
  7. The cauldron and flame at both games makes me think why bother with it this time lol can hardly see it and only get to see it on tv for a few hours during both games
  8. yup - my thoughts exactly.... if any nation was to pull off spectacular memorable ceremonies during COVID it would be Japan but nope.
  9. Despite being 2021 Japan all 4 ceremonies have to be the most amateurish ever.... And i don't think covid is to blame.... it's the creative team changes and mess which if COVID never happened we would still be saying that. the 2016 handover segment beats all of these. Even the 2019 RWC opening ceremony was lame to be honest. Just my thoughts
  10. NZ TV is yet again showing ads but not showing what it is missing - so i won't be sticking with this. Shame on them.
  11. I say bring back the bidding process of the 80's, 90's and early 2000's - bribery and all. At least we got exciting bid races by world class cities and very good Olympic Games...
  12. Better than the olympics opening but still very lame and amateurish....
  13. i am off to bed.... NZ TV have commercials and they are not picking up again where they left off so missing bits of it - disgusting. Enjoy
