For an event that only takes place once every 4 years, you would think the hosting City / Country would do something to make it memorable.
I understand that Beijing set the bar a little too high. No one can top what Beijing did in 2008. But, what London did just 2 hours ago was a crime against Humanity.
They should be banned from all future Olympic Hosting. The really spent 15 billion on this? I guess the producers pocketed 14.5 billion?
The message was clear. If someone puts on an amazing show, don't try to top it. No point in trying. Just give up and put your head down in shame.
Everything was just dark and gloomy. The performers themselves looked bored to death.
I just watched it an hour ago and can't remember what I just watched. Can anyone name one thing that was spectacular about the opening ceremony? They are claiming how London's opening ceremony would be more "personable", but let me ask you this. What's more personable? Being bored to death or being wowed and entertained.
I understand China did some CGI work for their "firework" show, maybe London should have just CGI the entire event.
