Review // Godzilla 2014 [SPOILER ALERT]


[ Godzilla (2014) ] -- it is good to see the King of Monsters that looks like the man in a rubber suit version we all grew up with. Fat with short arms but HUGE, not thin like an iguana [Godzilla (1998)].

WARNING MINOR SPOILERS ALERT

I think this film suffers from the same problem with the Michael Bay transformer movies. 

TOO MUCH HUMAN STORY IN A MONSTER (or ALIEN ROBOT) MOVIE.

I went to see a monster movie and instead we got an American soldier trying to get back to his family meanwhile there were rampaging Kaiju and they went the same direction. 

They changed his origin story instead of being born of nuclear experimentation this time he is an ancient radiation eating animal. In the 1940s they nuke him and I guess the shock waves drove him into hiding and he reemerges in current day because another nuclear eating Kaiju which happened to destroy a nuclear Powerplant is out on the loose and Godzilla being an alpha predator has to hunt both motu. 

They say that all three Kaiju feed on radiation why then do they keep using nukes? aren't they just giving Kaiju easier access to the nukes, and feeding them? 

We are lead to believe he is going after to hunt and eat, then doesn't eat them and goes after the next monster. 

Also after getting knocked out for a night when he awakens why is he going off to sea again and not staying to wreck havoc in the city.

I like the way Godzilla killed the MOTU, excellent monster kill. 

Anyway I hope in the next Godzilla movie they have less human drama BS. More monsters and definitely more monster fights (less dust clouds and closing doors that cover the fights too).

  1. Nagulat ako na Bryan Cranston died kaagad! And hindi ko rin nagets fully what really happened. Ang comment ko lang is that Godzilla has a small head! Hehehe.. Sana sinali nalang sa Pacific Rim si Godzilla! Hahaha...

    Super stupid kaya yung gamit ng gamit ng nuke - EH YUN NGA ANG energy/food source nila eh!!! EngotS? Hehehe..

    Mostly TV people yung cast, I think... Hehehe...

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.

Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
--
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

QVGA:
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image

VGA:
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

DENR Pollution Control Officer Basic Training Seminar

If you've been following me on plurk or twitter you'd know that I'm attending a 4 day Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) Basic Training Course for Pollution Control Officers (PCO) for our company.

Basically the PCO is tasked to make sure that the business is complying to the laws of the land in regards to the environment.

The good... There are laws in place for safe guarding our air, water, land quality. That's AWESOME! Captain Planet is getting a big boost.

The bad... It seems that this seminar is focused more on MONEY. I don't know why I am surprised it's government. Most of the compliance discussions have been about getting permits, fines, penalties. I could not take it anymore so I asked the lecturer. What could we do to bring down emissions and minimize waste water. His response: Our mandate is to check for compliance, maybe you should ask the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) on what can be done. NICE! It would've been…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
