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! 😆

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.

Destiny

I’ve been recently watching DVD re-re-runs (sic) of “destiny” films (specifically, Serendipity and My Sassy Girl) these past few weeks. They topped my hit chart almost instantaneously. I also remembered watching years ago an Asian film entitled: Love on a Diet, which also has a similar meeting–parting–meeting-again setup. This kind of movie really draws out the soft side in me, or rather the dreamy part of me.

Now, on to the topic:

Destiny — something, or rather someone we all look forward to. It builds us dreams and hopes that another person is bound to be with us for the rest of our lives. Oh, it’s so good.

So, what if you found somebody and fell for her? But, destiny gets in the way. Yes, (it is obvious that) I believe in destiny. I also believe it tears hearts apart, wrecks peoples lives, shatters hopes and dreams for a person they thought was their destiny — just like what happens in the movies, without the happy ending. Ugh. It’s so sad.

But I make my own destiny.

So, if you are reading this, let me just tell the whole world:

I’d make my destiny with you. 🙂

It’s all about choices.

It’s time for some change

We all have our own problems and we, sooner or later and in one way or another, would know how to take care of them. I just don’t know why I keep myself from solving them. Then, I remember I keep asking God about things I want to be able to do, but one little line from a favorite movie made me think again. It was when God said:

People want me to do everything for them. What they don’t realize is that they have the power. You want to see a miracle? Be the miracle.

I’ve watched the film, Bruce Almighty, for over five times now. I hope now it strikes me for good. I really won’t tell what changes I need to undergo. But I hope writing this article would make me remember everytime that there are people expecting me to change. Yes, I really want to…
