-MEGA! (<-----I never thought I would use that that word can be used as an adjective and I never thought I would use it but oh well I just did.)

From the trailer alone, I already know (who wouldn't?) that this film is about a villain again (remember Despicable Me?). However, I did not figure of how crazy this Megamind guy is. I actually pitied his fate during his childhood. People with cruel childhood often become cruel people.

Also, I knew from the start that he will become a good person in the end. But oh, so much for spoilers. Anyway, I do not really have to say. I just like the film. This is just one of those films wherein some lines are delivered just to break your heart. After all, many cartoon films do that.

I jut love this. I hope there will be a sequel. Who knows, some other evil guy will be infused with Metroman's DNA and ta-daah comes Part 2!

RATING: 10 of 10 stars!

Sa Muling Pagkikita

2 investigated
Hahay. Na-engganyo tuloy akong mag post tungkol sa pagpapaalam sa blogosphere dahil sa post na ito: (Pramis, Babalik Ako) ng isa sa mga bloggers.

Oh ayan. magpapaalam na ako ng maayos bago pa may dumanak na dugo (wag naman sana.). Masyado akong busy ngayon kahit na ako ay nasa ikalawang taon pa lang sa kolehiyo. Ta's masyado pang magulo utak ko dahil mukhang babagsak na naman ako (at parang sa 4 na "medyo-major" subjects pa). Putek!

Tapos na nga ang pasok pero di pa rin namin iyon maramdaman. Kasi naman may proyekto pa kaming tinatapos (na di matapos-tapos at di masimulan-mulan. haha). Hindi rin naman madali yung pinapagawa sa amin ni Sir. Pinapagawan kami ng isang program (as in computer program) na mag-so-solve ng isang (o higit pa sa isa) na math problem. Tsaka, mind you choosy si Sir ah. Ayaw niya yung simpleng problem lang. Gusto niya yung nosebleed na problems. Pak! Ang resulta? Eh di nosebleed din kami.

Hindi pa rin talaga kami nakakasimula. Ang mas nakakakilabot pa diyan ay ngayon Marso 30 ang deadline. Dead nga kami. Ang tingin ko pa eh mukhang mataas ang tingin at ekspektasyons niya sa amin dahil dalawa sa aming grupo ay Computer Engineering studes (at isa ako dun. patay!) tsaka may nauna ng grupo na nagpresent ng kanilang project ng maaga at ang project nila ay napaka-naning (short for naningkamot, bisaya ng pinaghirapan o naghihirap). Hay. Bogs talaga kami dito.

So sa mga tao diyan na wiling tumulong na may kaalaman sa Microsoft Visual C++ na software, ako ay hindi mag-aatubiling tanggapin ang tulong. Please, parang awa niyo na. Kung may alam kayo nito lalo na sa pagso-solve ng "systems of equations using matrix", mag-comment lang. Hindi ko pa rin mabuo-buo ang aming source code.

Oh yah. Paalam na. At gaya ng sabi ni Son Goku sa tagalog dub ng Dragon Ball Z, "sa muling pagkikita, paalam!"

Parang ganito din ako. [image from here]


P.S. Kung may magco-comment at saka-sakaling may anghel na tutulong, mababasa ko pa rin kahit na mawawala ako ng matagal sa blogosphere.

-I know that this is a not a new movie but hey I don't really go to movies and it is just recently that I had time to watch this in my very own home theater. haha. I actually watched this film already but not fully, just some kind of skim-and-scan.

I really thought that this film is an adaptation of a book so i was very eager to watch it because I'm really into film adaptations of books. To my dismay, it is not based on a book but actually/partly on a poem by Goethe.

Anyway, I still watched it because many said that it's worth the time. And it sure is worth the time. Good to see Nicholas Cage in silver screen again and his skills did not falter through time. With Jay Baruchel, I like his punchlines especially his "bad lies." haha. Just some kind of cool because I just saw Baruchel in the "Million Dollar Baby" film where he played as a boxer who has more enthusiasm than skills.

Also, it was just so timing that I just heard the song "Secrets" by One Republic in PGT Season 2. While listening to the "Skeights" band playing it I was very sure that I heard that song yet couldn't identify where. When I watched this film again (after the skim-and-scan), I realized that it was here that I heard it.

I hope there would be a sequel. After all, we never saw Horvath die right? If you really finished the film, you'd know what I mean. His hat is on a display on some kind table and then a hand grabs to reach it just as the screen fades out.

RATING: 10 of 10 stars!

-It took some time to watch this film. I've already heard this sauna pa but I decided to watch it later. Someone told me that it's a mind-boggling kind of film so I decided to watch it kung andam na akong utok. char. haha. And oh, i did not expect the twist. Somebody already told me that there's a twist. That is what i was actually excited to see when I was still DL-ing this film. But I then forgot as soon as I watched.

I love twists but I do not really like cliff-hanger endings. But at the same time, I like 'em because they make you think of what the possible endings could be blablabla. Sorry guys, i don't LIKE this film, I LOVE IT!!! woohoo! haha.

Also I love the name play of the new Architect. Wala ra. I'm into Greek mythology and anyone who's into it too knows that Ariadne is the mortal who gave Theseus a ball of thread and the sword to help him get out from the Minotaur's Maze.

As of now, I am planning to make my own totem. haha

Mga Kwento ng mga Titser: Sir Iggy

2 investigated



Sa wakas, nakapagpost na ako ulit. Medyo magaan-gaan na pakiramdam ko ngayon. Ang post ngayon ag isang compilation sa mga kalokohang kwento ng isa sa aming guro na aking itatago sa pangalang Sir Iggy. Itataglish ko nalang pala para mas maintindihan.

-Exercise-
Ang leksyon namin ay tungkol sa Energy at Work.
Sir Iggy: Work is the product of Force and Distance. Therefore, if the object is not moved there is no work kay zero man ag distance.
Estudents: (tatango-tango lang)
Sir Iggy: (nagdedemo ng pagtutulak sa whiteboard na nakadikit sa pader) Class, am I doing work? I am pushing the board but the board is not moving. So hindi ito work. Anong tawag dito (dumada moves naman ng kanyang jokes)?
Ako: Exercise, sir? hahaha
Sir Iggy: No, it is something you do that has no effect.
Imaginary Student: Ineffective exercise?
Sir Iggy: No. Tawag dun ay effort. Tulad sa test, kung nagrerequest ang student na "Sir, pwede may points yung effort?" Walang points yun.
Imaginary Student: Sir, pwede naman ang ink ah. haha. Dapat may points din yun pero di mo binibigyan ng points. haha

-Effort ulit-
Si Iggy: Alam niyo ba yung effort kung ano?
(tahimik lang kami habang naglo-loading pa utak namin)
Sir Iggy: Dun naglalanding yung efflane. :D

-Load-
Sir Iggy: An example of an active force is a load. Eh, anong load ang hindi parin bumibigat kahit na dumadami pa?
Giselle at ako: LOAD SA CELLPHONE!!! :DD
Sir Iggy: Pero class, dapat ba talagang tawaging load iyon? Eh di ba tulad lang yun ng gasolina na parang pagkain ng sasakyan.
Kami: Tama kayo sir. Hindi nga dapat load tawag dun.
Sir Iggy: Hindi. Load parin yun. Load sa wallet. Load sa pocket. hahaha


Sayang nga lang kasi aapat na mababait na estudyante lamang kaming pumasok. Kasi naman siguro kami lang ding apat ang di masyadong busy. haha. Yan tuloy. Na-miss nila ang kakornihan ni Sir Iggy. haha


(NOTE: echos lang yang Imaginary Student. Yan yung tinatawag na pampagulo sa kwento. Wala talagang Imaginary Student na yan at lahat ng kanyang sinai ay di talaga naganap.)

Tired

3 investigated
Oh yeah! I finally made a post, my first March 2011 post. Obviously, because this post is in parallel to the title, this post would be unproductive. You guess it right. I'm tired as of now. I actually had an idea for tonight's post, a somewhat-comeback post but I lost the appetite because I'm tired physically, mentally, emotionally and [pls. insert root word]-nally. I started with a great day actually but it turned it to be just short-time when I received my latest quiz result in one of my subjects. It's an Oh-WTF kind of score. I really lost my optimism that time because I thought that that quiz would be my time to "recover" my grade. Well, it turned to be not. I still have the chance to pass that subject only if I get an almost perfect score the next quiz (which I tell you is some kind of only-miracle-can-do-that thing).Anyway, this post will be just short and I have no plans to make another paragraph regardless of how unrelated the sentences are. Bye for now! I hope I can face my blog with a good face the next time. :|
