Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen Movie Review

Transformers: Revenge of the FallenImage via Wikipedia
Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen is officially the hottest movie today! Grossing over $200 Million in the US box office on its first five days, it ranked second and very close to the all time highest first five-day earnings, the 2008 block buster Dark Knight which earned 203 Million. Amidst the criticism from movie reviews, the movie still made its way to the top. Indeed, director Michael Bay is the happiest man in the world at this moment.


I personally witnessed the incredible reception to this movie. Last weekend, Saturday (June 29, 2 009), I decided to watch the movie in my hope that the movie goes had slowed down already since it was first shown a few days ago. To my surprise and annoyance, I have to line up to the ticket booth for almost an hour just to secure a lower seat because that’s all that was left. All four theaters are filled with people anticipating the display of advanced special effects and the action packed story that was first manifested in its prequel Transformers way back in 2007. Anyway, it’s worth the effort. Here is my assessment of the movie.

The Story

This movie do not thrive in its story, it thrives on special effects. Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen has a very plain and simple story: someone failed in the past, then he amassed power through time and come back to claim his revenge. That’s it!


The Acting

Just like the story the acting was just “OK”. I guess it’s more accurate to say that the acting is just “enough”. Yes, the actors and the actresses did just what is needed. Anyway, movies of this kind do not need to have a display of extreme emotions. But I have to comment the robots for sharing in this aspect. Bumble Bee is quite good in crying! And also Optimus Prime.
The movie is also full of humor. You will laugh a lot of times when you watch this movie. I have to commend Sam’s mother for excellent good comedy acting.

Cinematography and Special Effects

The movie is all about the special effects! I go “wow” when I saw the first display of special effects. This movie is surely of high budget. I really like the way cars and aircraft transforms into robots. The epic battle in Egyptian pyramids was truly awe inspiring. You will find yourself caught in high packed action from the beginning to the end.
As a summary and conclusion, I have to say the movie did great. It fulfills the people’s expectations. I guess that’s the reason why it didn’t scored high on movie reviews but won the favor of numerous movie goers looking for a high quality action packed and advanced movie themes like this.
So if I will grade this movie in a scale of 1 to 10, I will give it a score of 8.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
