Movie Freebies Galore

After losing to the Transformers T-shirt raffle, and not being able to participate in the Happy Potter and the Deathly Hallows alternate ending contest that turned out to be just a book raffle, I knew I just have to take the chance on this one. Besides I’d really like that dog tag.

Yuga is onto another raffle contest. This time, it is about the third installment of the films based on Ludlum’s Bourne series—The Bourne Ultimatum. He would draw a combination of three countries where the film was shot, and anyone who has chosen that specific combination wins. So, everyone, gather up your luck and choose the three countries you think would go to Yuga’s hand during the draw.

Prizes to be won include:

  • a black “The Bourne Ulitimatum” cap; and
  • a David Webb dog tag replica.

There would be two raffles, just check out his post to know more about it.

Good luck to me … for the dog tag!

Transformers

Transformers
Electrical Engineering. Devices used to transfer electric energy from one circuit to another, especially a pair of multiply-wound, inductively-coupled wire coils that effect such a transfer with a change in voltage, current, phase, or other electric characteristic.
film. A 2007 live action film directed by Michael Bay starring Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox.

Ok, ok … I won’t be talking about my past EE lessons here. I’ve just watched Transformers with my uncle and cousins yesterday. I must say it was great! The action scenes, camera angles, and effects are just astounding—thanks to Michael Bay. The realism put into the mecha CG animation was amazing as well!

I really cannot comment about its deviations from the original animation storyline,[1] though, for I was just a little kid when I’ve watched it. Nevertheless, it really caught me with my mouth open for the mixed comedy and action it brought on the table. I really liked the scenes where Sam Witwicky was trying to catch Mikaela Banes’ attention that Bumblebee started playing on its radio songs super fit for the scene. It was a laugh trip! :lol:

BTW, Sir Abe announced about 10 hours ago that he is giving away free Transformers T-shirts! And this post serves as my entry. (email address: ajalapus at ajalapus.com)

Aside from Bumblebee,[2] I really like Starscream. Since the F-22 Raptor is also my favorite, there isn’t really any competition. I think he was the one who got me interested in watching Transformers in the first place. Add to that Starscream’s agility being capable of transforming mid-air—being disguised as one of the allies, he then transforms jumping from one Raptor to another. Oh, the deceit! ;)

Footnotes:

  1. ^ If there is any.
  2. ^ Who is probably the majority’s favorite.

Funny Gag for Halloween

I was browsing through some blogs when I came across a Filipino Jokes blog entry through Pinoy Blog. I browsed all its pages and found some on its Google Video links entry quite amusing. I thought I’d share to you one since it’s Halloween and the gag’s theme is very relevant this time of the year. Enjoy!

Watch the Gag on Google Video

Happy Halloween, everyone!

I think credit would go to Stevan Hogg since his name is bugged all throughout the video.

A Role Model

Earlier tonight, I’ve finished watching GTO Live Action series my sister and I borrowed from our uncle. Even if I had already watched this whole series one day years ago, I, still, was really entertained by everything he did in those 12 episodes (spanning nine hours) of comedy and drama. I’ve even finished watching the GTO Live Action Drama Special — a special sequel to the series — and the GTO Live Action Movie, which is not connected to the series.

I really do not know how he does it (or at least how he thinks about things) but I really am amazed on how he recovers from every trial prejudice and first impressions bring him. What makes me wonder more is that how he could be so right and so wrong at the same time (of course, with more emphasis on the right deeds). I don’t plan to be a teacher but Eikichi is one person I’d really look forward to be in the future, less the foul mouth and crudity. :P

Now, I really wish I could do to my girlfriend what he did to impress and make Miss Fuyutsuki fall in love with him … It was impressively pure of heart.

GTL: Great Teacher Lapus — Doesn’t sound right, does it? :lol:

One big slip of the tongue

I doubted it since I first saw its advertisement. I doubted it more after I’ve seen the show. Even more doubts came during the middle of its season. Now one big slip of the tongue gave it all away.

Many rumors already say somebody connected to the network will win. Now it makes sense to me.

Why would anyone let the rich play the game to be rich? A magazine model and an imported commercial model? Give me a break! I really think it’s for the show’s marketing — not for the challenge of playing the game.

Ok, I know you have an idea of what I am talking about. I couldn’t hold it in anymore. I didn’t really want to post something about this. The events that popped out made me do so.

Yes, yes. I’m talking about Pinoy Big Brother — the only show I think ABS-CBN’s been proud of recently. No wonder, it sure makes a hell lot of a money from its viewers and sponsors. Even tried to make them think their votes will count for the last minute. Oh, I most certainly doubt it — they had the evictee’s mother come home the night before the evictee was voted to be evicted! Got script? No doubt about that.

Quick update: Look! Somebody noticed, too.
