On Plagiarism, Stealing, Copying

In the News today:
Photo plagiarist said financial woes made him steal pic
http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/327980/lifestyle/peopleandevents/photo-plagiarist-said-financial-woes-made-him-steal-pic

Being Poor is not an excused to steal or plagiarize in order for you to win in a contest. If you are poor and educated, you can think of other ways to earn money - get a part time job in school or any work of your interest. This really saddened me.

And now you are being criticize on what you did. His school should do something, sayang pa naman at he's studying in one reputable University.



Tapos, meron pang copycat dyan somewhere sa tabi-tabi.

Goodness, can't you think of a unique name for your "group"? LOL
(this is a personal blind item).

Buying and selling of goods and services has emerged since everything is available online. Retailers are now using this method to sell their merchandises and services and became as one of the major source of information and result has been anticipated by the consumers.

One of the most famous e-commerce online shopping site on the web is Amazon.com, years before the site mainly focused on selling books, now, it catered all kinds of goods from clothes, cds, electronics and many more.

Now You See Me

Image
Three magicians and a mentalist, a super team called "The Four Horsemen" is today's famous illusionists which brought together and perform their greatest act in Las Vegas and planned to rob a local bank in France using their magical techniques.



Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco acted as superheroes in helping the audience to receive amount of money during their magical stint. Amazing!

The movie has a lot of camera spins, lens flares, CGI tricks which also explains how each incidents happened so you have to pay attention with each details and the sequence of events. The plot is too predictable, the FBI guys keep on chasing them. There are minor complications in the middle part wherein you will discover who's the real villain in this story.

Now You See Me uses ordinary magic tricks and styles. The most important is - we are all entertained with those magic tricks. Thanks to high technology :)

Ekstra - The Bit Player

Image
Loida, is like every 'ekstra' we see on the television or movies. The bit players can be anyone (masa) that will act as (1) a passerby, (2) a maid, (3) party-goer, or (4) that each scenes requires a 'crowd.'



One of the country's bankable actress, Vilma Santos is Loida - a single parent who dreams of becoming a 'superstar' so she accepted each every extra role offered to her.

It was like a real visualization of what's happening behind the scenes, showing bit players in a very unfair situation. Loida's character is a true humble person, her emotions are transparent despite of those selfish filmmakers and producers treated other bit players.

Director Jeffrey Jeturian has done it frame by frame from how bit players were being selected and Loida showed up her skills in order to get a few seconds fame onscreen.

I enjoyed each scenes specially the part when Loida forgot some of her lines because of
nervousness to her excitement that she'll joining her favor…

We're the Millers

Image
David Clark messed up when teenage punks steal his cash and stash leaving him with a major problem (debt) to his supplier. He was forced to travel to Mexico to bring back a large shipment of mary jane (marijuana, ahem).

Realizing that this is one a tough job, He hired Rose (a stripper, Jennifer Aniston) to act as a fake wife and two kids and a cool RV - they are the "Millers," an illusion  family traveling to Mexico and the trouble comes in.

I don't think this is a wholesome comedy because the story is related to drugs and some dialogues are absolutely for mature audiences.

The plot is predictable, though I enjoyed Jennifer Aniston's strip dance. Expect a lot of comedic fight scenes, chasing with the bad guys, and a lot bloopers.

A funny movie that will only last for a couple of hours, so you have no other choice to watch it and leave it afterwards.
Rotten Tomatoes rated this flick with an Average Rating: 5.4/10

Elysium - wealthiest place on space

Image
I won't forget this film, This is the first movie I saw here in USA :) LOL
Set in 2154, the film Elysium described the world as: overpopulated, full of diseases and pollution. Max, portrayed by Matt Damon who wishes to travel to Elysium but unfortunately, he's just one of the poor factory worker. Everything is automated on that time, police robots disciplined each citizens indiscriminately with will arrests you with no humane reasons.

Max had a radiation accident when he got stuck inside the factory machine room and gave him few days to live. He wanted to get to Elysium where he can be healed in split seconds.
