Movie Premier Encounter–Warrior

Last night I watched movie premier of “Warrior” at the Podium, I’m not a fan of UFC and Mixed Martial Arts kind of sports if you can count it as a sports, because I don't see the point of people beating each other up, inflicting what could be permanent brain damage on a complete stranger all for the sake of a monetary prize.

But this movie is all about the family, forgiveness, and determination and beating up each other for the big pot money rollup in one great movie.

The Story:

brothers facing the fight of a lifetime in Lionsgate’s WARRIOR, a moving, inspirational action drama from acclaimed director Gavin O’Connor (Miracle).

Haunted by a tragic past, Marine Tommy Conlon (Hardy) returns home for the first time in fourteen years to enlist the help of his father (Nick Nolte) to train for Sparta, the biggest winner-takes-all event in mixed martial arts history. A former wrestling prodigy, Tommy blazes a path toward the championship while his brother, Brendan (Edgerton), an ex-fighter-

turned teacher, returns to the ring in a desperate bid to save his family from financial ruin.  But when Brendan’s unlikely, underdog rise sets him on a collision course with the unstoppable Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront each other and the forces that pulled them apart, facing off in the most soaring, soul stirring, and unforgettable climax that must be seen to be believed.

A rousing ode to redemption, reconciliation and the power of the human spirit, WARRIOR is also a moving testament to the enduring bonds of family.   WARRIOR stars Tom Hardy (the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Black Hawk Down), Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom, Star Wars: Episode III), Jennifer Morrison ("House", Star Trek) and Nick Nolte (Tropic Thunder, The Thin Red Line).  The film is directed by Gavin O'Connor; screenplay by Gavin O’Connor & Anthony Tambakis & Cliff Dorman and story by Gavin O'Connor & Cliff Dorfman.

Popcorn Verdict :

(1-Lame, 2-Whatever, 3-Good, 4-Great, 5-Woot!!! Recommended)

Here’s my Take! the underdog character of Rocky and multiply it by 2x, then add an even more dysfunctional family than the one in The Fighter, add-in Mixed Martial Arts and you have the formula for rousing fight drama Warrior. It was a worth watch!!!

 

Storyline – 4 popcorn

Characters – 4 popcorn

Action – 4 popcorn

Recommend to watch – 4 popcorn

You can watch warrior exclusively on SM Cinemas starting Sept. 28, 2011

Make your Phone your Wallet - Google Wallet Launched

Last May Google announced Google Wallet—an app that makes your phone your wallet—with Citi, MasterCard, Sprint and First Data. With Google Wallet, you can tap, pay and save using your phone and near field communication (NFC).

They said they had been testing it extensively, and today they are releasing the first version of the app to Sprint. That means the beginning to roll out Google Wallet to all Sprint Nexus S 4G phones through an over-the-air update—just look for the “Wallet” app. Here’s a demo of Google Wallet in action. The details here:

Introducing Google Wallet

According to Google - This is still just the beginning and while we’re excited about this first step, we look forward to bringing Google Wallet to more phones in the future. You can learn more about Google Wallet at google.com/wallet.

1-1_phone_wallet

Google goal is to make it possible to add all of our payment cards to Google Wallet, so you can say goodbye to even the biggest traditional wallets.

This would be cool if they can rollout this for worldwide use. But who knows, maybe it’s just a matter of time  before we can start using it here in Philippines.

Unboxing and Review of Lenovo IdealPad B470

Last Sept. 2, 2011 I pickup my new Lenovo IdealPad B470 at Lamco Office in Ortigas Center, I won this in their event Lamco solutions Day Customer last August 24, 2011 held at Makati Shangri-la Hotel.
My Unboxing: The packaging box is compact and nice! It comes with signature carrying case which is a shoulder bag.
The Box Package
The Details Information at the Side of the Box
The Box Contents: Lenovo B470, power Adapter, Manuals, CD Driver
The Lenovo B470 and the Box of the Power Adapter
Manuals and CD Drivers
My Review: The color is Black which is a signature for Lenovo Notebooks, the design looks sturdy and the body is made of some kind of hard plastic, it does not come with an installed operating systems. Good thing I have a spare 32/63bit Windows 7 Ultimate.
I tried to install the Windows 7 32bit and it well well without a glitch all the included drivers work great! After a day of using it I decided to erased it and put in the 64bit edition, the installation well also without a problem, but I did get a issue on one of the drivers, will get to that later.
The keyboard layout is nice and the response and tactile of the keys and very comfortable to use, the trackpad is bit getting use to it because it sometimes got it a way when using the keyboard.
The Screen is 14.0" HD LED Glare is great for viewing movies in HD and pictures, tried to play an HD Movie using XBMC and it was clear and crisp.
Overall Expression: I love the form factor and design, although the processor is new to me which is B940 I'm not sure if it's in the family of core 2 duo or with the new Intel 2nd gen. processor (i3, i5, i7). Battery life is decent that it let me work for around 3hours, The 3 USB, HDMI, eSATA, finger print scanner  are some of the plus factor that you wont see on some other notebook in the market.
