Nut Review on Transfomers (2007)

Transformers. Their War. Our World. Long Queue. No Ticket. Our Time...

Transformers (2007)
Guess there is no need for me to introduce to you the Transformers because I know it is one of your childhood popular cartoons. Transformers first movie was created in year 1985 and it was an animation or children used to call it cartoon. After 22 years, Michael Bay is back with the Transformers movie which is created with the assistant of high technology such as computer graphics and animation.

If you really do not know what is Transformers about, I can briefly explain it to you here. Basically, Transformers is about a dozen of robots that can transform themselves into vehicles. There are two tribes of Transformers where, as usual, one is the good guys (the Autobots) and another is those bad guys (Decepticons). The bosses of these two tribes are Optimums Prime (good guy) and Megatron (bad guy).

Warning: This article/entry/post/review may contains spoilers.

Ironhide (Autobots)
In this Transformers movie, The Earth is caught in the middle of an intergalactic war between two races of robots, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, which are able to change into a variety of objects, including cars, trucks, planes and other technological creations. One of the Transformers which was a little robot can even transform itself into a cellphone. Cool eh?

Optimus Prime (Boss of Autobots the decent guys) is on his quest to obtain the Allspark which is also known as "The Cube". He believes this cube will bring destruction to the universe. Megatron (Boss of Decepticons the evil guys) discovers the Cube on Earth but he became frozen when he landed in the Arctic Circle. Captain Archibald Witwicky and his crew of explorers stumble upon Megatron's body in 1987. Megatron's navigational system is unintentionally activated and Witwicky's eye glasses are imprinted with the coordinates of the Cube's location. Sector 7, a secret organization of the U.S. government, discovers the Cube and builds the Hoover Dam around it to mask the energy signal.

Then, one day the other Decepticons landed on Earth and went on a rampage on us human and destroyed everything in their way. The Autobots leaded by Prime appeared to stop the Decepticons. In the end Megatron is killed by the hero as he rams the Cube into Megatron's chest. Although one of the Autobots named Jazz was sacrificed during the fight to stop the Decepticons, Prime expresses his gratitude to human especially the hero, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf), and the heroine, Mikaela Banes (Megan Fox).

I must admit the sound and visual effect of this movie are great. The story is interesting, some dialouges are even funny and Megan Fox is hot! LoL

Megan Fox as Mikaela Banes
This movie is for everyone who knows Transformers and for those who would like to know about it.

I rated it 5 out of 5.

U-Turn

Recently, a friend of mine mentioned infront of me that he thought he was in the wrong way. He told me he started to have doubt on whether he has choosed the right course. He said he should have taken courses related to IT instead of engineering.

Year 1 semester 1 is definitely a torment to all UTAR Mechanical Engineering Bachelor Degree students. Besides having lectures and tutorials for 7 subjects in one week which make our time table so freakingly packed, we also have assignments and tests for each subject. We have been having 1 test per week since week 3 and still we have 2 more tests remaining.


He told me he couldn't catch up with the syllabus. I honestly replied him that neither do I have my brain up-to-date yet. He laughed but continued, "I should have stayed in PJ and study Programming or Networking related course". I reminded him about he still have the chance to take the U-turn as it is not too late yet since it is just the semester 1 in our degree course.

As for myself, though I did not do well in a couple of tests in the past few weeks, I believe I will be able to pass all 7 subjects during the final if I work hard enough during the coming study week. After this semester, I'm pretty sure I will have no problem, at least until the final year.

He said he will decide if he is going to transfer course only after this semester when the result is out. Anyway, whatever his decision is, I will wish him good luck and I will go on with my engineer's dream, with one less rival :P

True Friend VS Real Hypocrite

I have been here on Earth for at least 19 years now. I have made a number of friends during the journey of my life. There are people who are really friendly out there all around the world. However, how many of them are truely friendly without pretending to be one? How many friends do you have that will always stand on your side and never betray you for once, or talk bad things about you with other people behind you? Do you ever know what they are thinking when they are smiling with you? Are you sure they never hated you?

It is really hard to find a true friend in this materialistic world. I have to admit that so far I only have a couple of true friends. They are the only ones I feel easy when I am around with them. They don't always think about their own benefit. Whatever they do is for the best to everyone. Although that is the case, we have never discuss anything about money because we know money is the root of all evil. We can't afford to lose our friendship to the evil.

A real hypocrite may seems really friendly to you and always smile with you. At first, he may be looked like a true friend of yours but once both of you encounter an obstacle, or as time passes, he will show his true colour. He befriended with you because he thinks you are beneficial to him. Once you have no value to him anymore, you will be abandoned and left behind. This kind of people is what we should avoid the most.

P.S. I'm having an entry with this title because recently I have been betrayed by a close friend of mine. Perhaps he doesn't even know he has betrayed me and think it is fine to gossip behind me but it really hurts when I found out about it.

More Space Please

Everything that I used to be doing everyday in the past is not what I am doing nowadays. What do I mean? I'm no more playing my favourite online games; I'm no more sitting infront of my PC every night; I'm not blogging as often as I did; I go to bed early at night; I wake up finding myself away from home but near school; I study and study with not much entertainment or recreation.

Is it because of the stress of examination? Is it because I'm missing home and family? Is it because I'm lazy to take out my notebook from my cupboard in Setapak? I have no idea. The only sure thing I have in my mind now is that Material Science test wasn't easy. I find it hard eventhough I have put efforts in studying Material Science for few days before the test which I would never have done so in the past.

Weekends are great. At home I have my beloved family with me, full speed Internet connection, and most important of all, a slightly-larger-than-single-but-smaller-than-queen-size-bed! Space is what I am lacking of in my room in Setapak - a tiny little room shared by three people. In Setapak, the only private time I have is when I am in the bathroom...I need more S P A C E!!! I need to find a new room after this year.

Excuse me as I must end here and enjoy my limited time at home now :P till next time.
