Hercules (2014) Movie Review

November 21st, 2014 / No Comments » / by wuhtevah

This movie was meh. And The Rock’s physical character just does not fit Hercules’. The movie starts off well at first, showing different monsters that Hercules had defeated.

I expected after that to see more huge monsters that he was going to fight against but the plot of the movie turned out to be so simple: he helped the wrong side then made amends to do the right thing. He and his group.

So the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord which turned out to be a deception and so more fights ensued until they defeated the enemy.

Simple plot. Nothing more. I expect good movies from Dwayne Johnson considering the plethora of movies that he already starred in turned into huge hits whether he was the main star or not.

This one was a disappointment. And it did not help that he sucked looking like Hercules. If the movie focused more on fighting monsters like perhaps showcasing his exploits against the legendary 12 labors, then I believe this movie would have been better from my point of view.

Strike 2 For An Ayala Owned Company – Globe. Screw You

November 16th, 2014 / No Comments » / by wuhtevah

I may not get this right because Ayala may or may not own all of Globe. If you want to correct me, be nice. If not, whatever. The point of this post anyway is to highlight a fracking, annoying and dumb customer service response.

Sure, we can never blame them because they only follow orders. But can we help it if we get pissed especially if the blame comes from them?

I ordered for an iPhone 6 and during the online process I clearly saw that the cashout can be installment based for 24 months. I wanted that option for sure since I did not have to shell out the cashout amount one time.

Heck, when I got the receipt, I was surprised why the cashout outright payment was shown instead. WTF?!?!?

Even their customer service agent gave me a robotic response that they have little access to modify it. WTF?!?!? A computerized system and they cannot do anything about it!??! They must be doing paperwork till now.

So this is strike 2. The first incident was with Bank of the Philippine Islands. They gave me the wrong credit card and they cannot do anything with my stolen points even though it was their blunder.

No wonder the service in most companies in the Philippines suck.

It is normal there will be problems experienced by customers. But doing nothing about it as if it is the customer’s fault? That is really pathetic.

When Boredom Strikes

November 13th, 2014 / No Comments » / by wuhtevah

These days it is impossible for our lives to be boring even for a second. I mean, look at technology now where almost our lives are consumed by it by the minute and maybe by the second to those who are addicted to staying online most of the time.

But in a country such as the Philippines, it can strike some of us because of the pathetic Internet speed that plagues the country no matter how modern or improved the facilities are that telecommunication companies say to the public.

During weekends my wife and I normally are busy but ever since we hired someone to do the laundry for us, our household tasks had lessened and when we both wanted to surf the Internet, we could not do anything else except waste time looking at the time ticking away because the Internet speed does nothing.

I told myself when I will get a new PC of my own, a good Internet connection should also be included. Else there would be no point in getting one.

Two more agonizing months and I will finally be free from Sun Cellular’s pathetic service. It is a grueling wait considering the pocket WIFI device they issued to me is worthless. This was my biggest mistake. I should have gotten the package where there was a free Samsung Tablet included. At least my money would not have gone to waste.

Getting bored can be draining. It is not easy wasting time doing nothing. I can feel how some guards might slack off because it is not easy being attentive for all 8 hours of one’s work time and getting a measly salary in return.

These days when boredom strikes, turn to gadgets and computers to keep yourself occupied. Just make sure you have an online connection. Unless all you want to do is play without that need, then you won’t be bored any time soon.
