This is coming across as a technically clever, cold and unimaginative ceremony.....it is so devoid of emotion or any sense of reality.

And it is also very generic in many parts, many copied ideas from earlier ceremonies and lots of overused Western music.

And the childrens' choir sort-of dancing while singing the Olympic Anthem. This is getting cringier every second.

Xi Jinping is watching. I mean, if no-one looks happy in front of him, then there's a bloodbath waiting for the performers.

Ceremony started really good but it has been going kinda downhill after the parade of nations.

Hopefully it picks up strenght later.

hoping Milano Cortina 2026 will give us a showstopper at the closing on 20th February.
Also hoping the Paralympic ceremony will be better as Tokyo's Paralympic opening ceremony was an improvement over the Olympic ceremony

I can't deal with the fact that the director of the technically excellent and stunning (albeit also emotionally cold) Beijing 2008 opening ceremony is the same person who is directing today's kitschy tripe: Zhang Yimou. He must have been forced to do it this way.
