Kakabili ko lang ng MacBookPro naglabas nanaman kayo ng bago?

Posted in Uncategorized on Agosto 7, 2015 by hindimahalagaopinyonko

Nakakainis talaga tong apple.

Ang tagal ko na pinagnanasahan yung 17″ na i7 na macbookpro, at sa wakas two months ago nakabili nako tapos ngayon naglabas sila ng bago.

Mas payat, mas magaan, mas mura, mas maganda yung resolution.

Normally wala akong pakiilam kung naglabas sila ng bago kasi hindi naman ako pa cool na anak mayaman na kapag may nakitang bago ang apple bibilhin na nila kasi wala lang. cool lang. hindi  naman nila kailangan, kaya lang nila bumili. Eh ako kailangan ko, pang trabaho.

Ang nakakairita sa 17″ is ang bigat niya. Para siyang baby na mataba. Dagdagan mo pa ng mga terrabyte na hard drive at kung ano ano pang cables, at maglakad lakad patungo sa kung asan man yung cliente o project mo and voila! instant workout!

Ang bilis pa magasgas, hindi lang naman to sa 17″, sa lahat ng aluminum na unibody. So kailangan pagkabili mo pa lang may case ka na agad or bag. Ang problema is, madalang ang case ng 17″. meron naman kaso dadalawa kulay, yung isa nga lang itim. Lahat nalang itim. Pati bag itim. Wala man lang blue o green o kahit na pink.

Although, may perks din naman tong 17″. mas malaki screen niya, although hindi sya  2880 by 1800 pixels. and may firewire 800 pa din sya, meron kais mga iba mga drive nila naka 800 pa din na firwire, although may thunderbolt na din to.

AVATAR–

Posted in Uncategorized on Agosto 7, 2015 by hindimahalagaopinyonko

December 19, 2009 9pm — pumunta ako sa Mall of Asia para manuod ng Avatar sa IMAX.

Mall of Asia

According to a not so reliable source last weekend na daw showing ang avatar in 3d or not and any other movies dahil nagdiva si Mother Lily na iprioritize ang MMFF.

Crouching Tiger Hidden Mother Lily

Oo, may power si Mother Lily na ganun. So ako naman si uto-uto nagkandarapa na makapanuod sa IMAX dahil iba daw talaga kapag 3d ang panuorin mo. Pinaghirapan ni  James Cameron na pagandahin ang 3d version nito.

Dumating ako dun ng 930pm, sold out hanggang last full show. Pero dahil matalino ako  bumili ako ng pang next day. Buti nalang kase sa susunod na araw ang may seats na lang is yung last full show na worth 741 pesos. Okay, so next day.

imax

Sa loob ng sinehan. Madami nagpipicturan dahil naka 3d glasses sila. Nakigaya ako, isa ako sa mga jologs na pumicture. Hindi mahalaga ‘tong information na to pero itry niyo dahil masarap maging jologs minsan.

jologs

Okay, unang eksena. Pinakita ang planetang “Pandora”.

Pandora the planet

on the way to pandora

Fast editing ng trees, soldiers in space, etc.

trees galore

soldiers going to pandora

Ang susunod na mga eksena ay very “Matrix” like. After a couple of sequences may water drop. Putangina ang angas.

angas amp

That, ladies and gentlemen, is how a 3d movie should start.

Ang kwento ay umiikot sa pilay na ex happy trigger na army boy, si Jake Sully.

Jake Sully

Deads na yung twin brother niya na scientist so siya yung pumalit sa position nito. Bago na deads si kambal, involved ito sa isang project with the government. The project involves making an Avatar by combining human and alien DNA, like a fetus sa sinapupunan ng isang mommy, ginogrow nila ito sa isang high tech water tank.

avatar sa loob ng tank

Once grown, a human gets to control it. (think “The Surrogates” and “Matrix” ) Dahil kamukha nito ang mga tunay na natives ng planetang ito, ang goal ng humans is to get to know the aliens and get them to trust the Avatars (or  as the aliens call them , the”Sky people)  para mapakiusapan nila na lumipat ng tirahan ang mga ito kase yung tinitirahan nila ay may mahalagang mineral underneath na kelangan at apparently gusto lang makuha ng mga military.

ito yung mineral

Jake now gets to get into a glorified tanning machine

Ito yung machine

and gets to control his brother’s avatar.

gamit na ni jake yung avatar eto yung una niyang nakita

may paa na siya

Being paraplegic for how many years he gets too excited kasi he finally has working legs thanks to the avatar.

sobrang excited si jake, bigla siya tumayo

Nagtatatakbo siya sa labas. Makikita natin ngayon si Jake sa isang science lab.

sa science lab

Kausap niya si Grace.

grace and jake talking

Grace is a scientist who wrote a book on the native people of pandora, the na’vi tribe.

Grace in her avatar form kasama yung Na’vi People

She has also worked closely with them before kaya yung iba sa mga Na’vi marunong mag english.

Sigourney Weaver as Grace

Medyo skeptical si Grace kay Jake but eventually learns to like him in a “the more you hate, the more you love” kind of way.

Love Hate relationship

No, they don’t have a thing. Ang sexy pa din ni Sigourney Weaver. Cut to Jake in a small room with Colonel Miles Quaritch played by Stephen Lang.

Colonel and Jake

Pinakita satin na tough military guy siya.

tough si colonel

Kinausap niya si Jake na magreport sa kanya  ng patago. Pumayag si Jake. Dun nagsimula ang conflict.

Kinausap ni Colonel

Ayun. So I’ll stop here dahil ayoko makaruin ng experience sa mga hindi pa nakakapanuod.

Although wala kayong masyadong mamimiss kahit ikwento ko sa inyo kase hindi siya ganun ka intense, ang story line i mean. Ang daming linya na cliche. Ang daming moments na predictable, its basically pedestrian. Nung priness release nila na 15 years in the making I guess nag concentrate sila sa graphics at hindi sa story.

Don’t get me wrong.  I  fucking loved the movie. The script may have been shallow, but trust me you wouldn’t mind the corny script. Its too visually beautiful that you wouldn’t care.

Unless panuoring mo to ng paulitulit at  hindi 3d, chaka ka palang mapapaisip na baka magkamaganak siguro si James Cameron at Stephenie Meyer. Nung sinabi ni james cameron na magiging successful to, he delivered. Nay, he kicked ass while delivering it.

Ang technique na ginamit niya dito ay  mas advanced na”performance capture“,  isang technique na dating ginamit ni Robert Zemeckis sa The Polar Express.

Avatar is great. It may have been the most visually beautiful movie of the year. Wait, actually, it is. Very well thought ang graphics, for 3d talaga and the editing was clean and it wasn’t too fast or dragging. Ang steady ng pulso ng putol. Kapag kinakailangang bilisan o bagalan chaka palang magbabago ang steady na pulso.

Zoe Seldana who played Neytiri was stunning and did a good job in acting. Panalo talaga.

Zoe Seldana as Neytiri

When I watched the movie I was beside a CG artist at nakakatuwa yung reaction niya. Itong taong to galing sa isang Hollywood run company.

Pagsinabi ko hanep hindi ako nag e-exaggerate. Hanep talaga kung pano naimagine ni James Cameron ang Na’vi people

natives

ang Pandora

floating rocks of pandora

ang creatures

flying creature

at ang mga tanim.

jungle ng pandora

Believe the hype.Watch it. It seriously is beautiful. Don’t mind the corny dialogue. It doesn’t matter. We have yet to see a perfect film na lahat ng aspect ma bubull’s eye niya. Kung ang future film makers gawing basehan tong pelikula na to,VISUALLY, tapos ihalo nila sa napakalupit na storyline/script, pwede na akong mamatay. Okay, yun exaggeration na yun. Pero i’d like to believe na makakakita ako ng pelikulang perfect in my lifetime.

Please lang panuorin niyo sa IMAX. para kayong nag acid o nag ecstasy o kahit ano pang droga na nakakapaghallucinate. (not that i would know) Mas maaapreciate niyo siya dahil this is, in fact, meant to be a 3d film. It defeats the purpose if you watch it in a normal cinema.

This movie is how you properly make a 3d film. Itratransport ka niya sa isang mundo na inimagine lang ng isang tao. Yun yung wild dun e. Inimagine niya lang itsura ng lahat ng ‘to. Hindi ako  masiyado nakakaappreciate ng pelikula dahil pinanganak ako na pintasera but this literally took my breath away.

O.A. lang diba pero seryoso, after the overrated Titanic, I now see James Cameron in a different light.

It’s either naka LSD siya nung ginawa niya to o isa lang talaga siyang henyo at hanep siya magimagine.

lsd

It’s worth the 401 pesos. Watch it.

Rating:

4/5   yan ang 3d.

May wordpress pa pala ako. Buti nalang naalala ko pa password ko dito. Last kong post 2009 pa, wala pang kwenta. Sana sa dami ng blog sa mundo wala masyado makakabasa nito. At kung nababasa mo to ngayon, kung sino ka man at atribida kang nagtatanong, “eh bat ka nagsusulat online kung ayaw mong mabasa to? ipokrito!”, simple lang ang sagot. una, judgmental ka, pangalawa,ayoko magsulat sa papel. huli akong sumulat sa papel ay mataba pa ang ipod. pangatlo, stress release.
Mabuti naman at nalinawan tayo dalawa sa paguusap na to.    
ktnxbye.

ANG GANDA NG NEW MOON

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on Disyembre 20, 2009 by hindimahalagaopinyonko

…..kung nakatali ako sa isang mapayat na stick na nakalambitin sa ibabaw ng kumukulong volcano habang tinitira ng arrow ng isang tribo na kamukha lahat ni jamby madrigal.

JA-JA-JA-JAMBY

mejo late na tong review na to. natatakot kase ako panuorin to kase baka bigla akong magmura sa loob ng sinehan at hulihin ako ng guards. so i went with my friend and watched the whole thing dahil hot daw si jacob. yes, i stayed and watched the whole damn thing.

You guys probably know the story by now, so i won’t summarize it anymore. (if you don’t, please good god don’t make me write it. wiki it na lang)

Things that made it bad: (aside from the book itself)

STEPHENIE MEYER

1. Stephenie Meyer. kung pangalan mo palang hindi mo na ma spell ng tama ay may malaking problema na tayo. pero congratulations. dahil sayo kahit sino, kahit 11 year old pa siguro yan, basta kayang magtype o sumulat sa papel, ay kaya ng matupad ang dream ng pagsulat ng isang libro at gawin itong blockbuster movie hit. and i will forever hate you for that.

BELLA

2. bella/kirsten. i watched her in zathura, and she was as lifeless and awkward in that film as she is in the twilight series. kahit sa mga pictures mo sa google mukha kang awkward. feeling ko mashado ka pa bata para magbotox so bakit wala siyang facial expression? bakit? bakit? bakit?!?

eto si bella nung masaya siya.

bella happy

eto siya nung malungkot.

bella sad

eto naman siya nung galit siya.

bella mad

eto yung takot siya.

bella scared

kung nasa libro na iisa lang ang facial expression ni bella, sorry. kala ko kase hindi lang kaya umarte ni kristen stewart.

2a. Yung scene na nagkakaroon siya ng nightmares, yung nagsisisisigaw siya na parang may malupit na dismenorrhea. the acting was phenomenal. phenomenally bad.

2b. Yung scene na nakaupo siya sa harapan ng bintana at lumalabas ang text ng months. akala mo ba maganda yun chris weitz?

2c. Yung scene na nasa classroom sila ni Edward, na winish niya magsuicide, sagot naman si bella kapag ginawa mo yun magpapakamatay ako. wala na sila ginawa kung di pagusapan yung relasyon nila.

2d. At yung break up scene. hindi ko alam kung natatawa siya o hindi siya makaiyak o sobrang nashock siya kaya ganun reaction niya. tapos naalala ko, oo nga pala si kristen stewart yung pinapanuod ko.

aabutin siguro ako hanggang 2Zabc kung iisa isahin ko yung bad scenes involving bella. so wag nalang. moving on.

EDWARD

3. edward. bukod sa pagiging stalker at pedompire (pedophile+vampire) nagpapasalamat ako na 30 minutes lang lumabas ang character ni edward sa buong pelikula dahil sapat na ang isang artistang hindi marunong umarte. hindi din nakakatuwa ang casper-like/reduce 50% opacity na pasulpotsulpot si edward .

JACOB

4.jacob. si jacob lang actually marunong umarte at ang ganda ng abs niya. pero ang weird ng ilong niya, nakakdistract.

husky voice

5. hindi ko maintindihan kung sino tong lalaking to (actually wala ako masyado pakiilam kung sino sya) at kung bakit husky boses niya.

stretchable shorts

6. bakit tshirt lang ang nawawala sa mga wolves kapag nagtratransform sila back into human form? stretchable ba shorts nila?

things that made it bearable:

JANE

1. dakota. sana si dakota fanning nalang si bella o di kaya si edward o di kaya yung iba pang characters. kahit sa sobrang igsi lang ng eksena niya dun, she owned it.

colorgrading from twilight

colorgrading from new moon

2.colorgrading. thank god you got rid of that boring bluish color. a warm tone really does something to a movie. compare nalang CSI new york and CSI miami. although gary sinise is a great actor and that caine guy is just like bella,they both cant act if their life depended on it, i’d rather watch csi miami, hindi lang dahil mas maganda at masmalinis at mas creative ang pagedit nito pero dahil may warm giddy feeling because of the color. may psychological effect yun e. pag bluish o cool, mas sad ang tone.sana kasindali magpalit ng kulay ang magpalit ng artista.

3.shots were okay.nothing spectacular. sana lang hindi mo sinali yung I’ll Sit In Front Of The Window Being Emo Habang Umiikot Yung Camera At Lumalabas Ang Pangalan Ng Mga Buwang Lumilipas shot.

4. special effects were so good i didn’t notice there were any. or maybe i just didn’t care.

5. knowing the fact na pinapanuod mo to para may mapintasan ka at gumaan yung pakiramdam mo, mawawala konti yung inis mo. konti lang. pero inis ka pa din e.

Sana inipon nalang nila yung perang ginastos sa pelikulang ‘to at ibinigay sa charity. O di kaya nagfund nalang sila ng karapatdapat na pinoy film makers.

NINJA ASSASSIN– IKAW NA ANG MAY CGI

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on Disyembre 14, 2009 by hindimahalagaopinyonko

Umiikot ang kwento sa isang orphan na ang pangalan ay Raizo.

Kinupkop siya ni Lord Ozuno,ang “Father”  sa Clan na ito.

along with other orphans,para matrain sila to be part of the Ozunu Clan.

Sa kasamaang palad, sa damidaming orphans doon siya yung naging favorite ni Lord Ozuno.

Iba yung treatment sa kanya compared sa ibang orphans, hindi siya pwede magkamali kung hindi hahampasin siya or paparusahan sa ibang paraan.

So, natural, nung pinakitaan siya ng kabaitan ng kapwa niyang orphan  na si Kiriko, nung sumobra ang paghampas ni Lord Ozuno sa tiny little feet niya, nagfall si Raizo kay Kiriko.

Tumanda sila, and although trained si Raizo not to feel any emotion naglaho ito noong fineel niya yung heartbeat ni Kiriko. Si Kiriko naman hindi nakayanan ang pinapagawa sa kanya ng Ozuno Clan so tumakas sha.

Hindi siya nagtagumpay at pinarusahan siya.  Deads siya ngayon. Yun ang rason kung bakit nagrebelde si Raizo. Actually hindi yun, pero yun yung main reason.

Ayoko ikwento lahat dahil hindi ako ganun kasipag at hindi ganun ka exciting.

Onga pala review nga pala ito hindi summary. Ang PANGIT ng storyline nito. napakababaw,ang corny nung dialogue, parang writer ng GMIK o TGIS nagsulat. at higit sa lahat putanginang CGI ng dugo yan. Okay lang nung una e, eh nag overkill. halos every five minutes may blood or dismembered part ng katawan na lumilipad sa ere. Akala mo tuloy dinownload lang yung splatter e. Yung opening ng pelikula was okay. Although alam mo na, sa simula palang, na ang pelikulang papanuorin mo ay punong puno ng bad lines and bad acting.

Effects wise, may angas eh. Then it became constantly gory that it became boring.

Parang shots lang yan ng pelikula e, halimbawa nag “Zolly”  ka sa isang eksena, hindi mo na uulitin yan all through out the movie dahil hindi na siya magiging special. Parang tuloy naging normal nalang makakitang hatiin yung tao e.

Ineexpect ko si Rain yung masama umarte.It turned out siya yung pa yung okay umarte.

Punyeta, yung mga galing hollywood pa talaga yung pangit umarte eh. Si Mika, yung researcher na hinire ng Europol.At yung Superior niya.

Grabe. wala ako masabi kundi bakit. At sinong gago ang nagsulat nito. Ano nangyari kay James McTeigue, yung nagdirect din ng V for Vendetta?

Bakit siya pumayag dito. Anong pumasok sa isip niya nung binasa niya yung script? Akala ba niya madadaan niya sa mabilis na editing at madaming madaming dugo at fake na fake na flying weapon?

Ineexpect ko na to sa Wachowski brothers, na nagproduce ng pelikulang to, dahil pagkatapos ng Matrix wala na silang matinong pelikulang nilabas.

Okay, kung hindi mo siya seseryosohin, kung hindi ka magpapadala sa hype, na ang ganda ng pelikulang to, ang ganda ng effects, ang angas, astig..kung wala ka ineexpect sa pelikulang ito, mas mageenjoy ka siguro.

May mga moments naman siya e, like yung nagprapractice si Raizo sa room niya, with his weapon, simple lang yung effects pero naging breather siya from the excessive blood bath,

when he was doing that handstand on a bed of  nails, although nothing about it was shot out of the ordinary, pero ang hot lang ng abs niya dun,

when the ninjas came out of the shadows for the FIRST time,

and the last fight scene with Lord Ozuno was shot beautifully. Hindi mashado gumalaw yung camera, with the flames in the frame, maganda, parang classic ninja movie shot with a modern twist.

Madami dami siyang beautifully shot moments especially bago matapos.

Magkakaroon ka na ng konting hope na baka naman bumawi to sa huli. Then it had to happen.

Sinabi ko na e. Sinabi ko na wala dun yung heart niya e. Asa pako gaganda yung dialogue sa huli. At siyempre ang pinakuhuling shot naging parang commercial ng shampoo.
