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.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store and I would like to share the steps I took in order to secure my account and get a new passbook. The steps outlined here is for a BPI savings account but generally the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and the most crucial step you need to immediately do is to contact your bank either through phone or personally reporting it to the branch where you opened the account. This will ensure that no funds will get out. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 89-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the lost. 2.

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. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link 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.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu
