Good Luck Chuck

Good Luck Chuck
I am not the best at reviewing stuff, especially movies….but here’s something: Good Luck Chuck ROCKS! This movie is one of the best movies i’ve seen in 2007 (if not the best). Unlike the overhyped “Superbad”, this movie actually made me laugh – let alone the fact that Jessica Alba stars in this movie. The movie actually has a little twist to set it apart from the pointless comedies that we see these days. The cast is really funny, and the way each character is developed in this movie is really smart. This is a must see for anyone either looking for a laugh or a decent movie. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with this movie – 10/10 (Just PERFECT!)
oh, and i cant help but mention the tagline: “True love is a blessing and a curse. She’s the blessing. He’s cursed.”

Lost

Apple Macbook Pro
I am lost in deciding what my new laptop will be. I have an IBM now and it sucks big time. Everyone around me suggested I buy an IBM and they were wrong. This time around, I will only take suggestions from true facts and not the word on the street. Anyhow, I am not sure as to whether i should buy a 17-inch desktop replacement (since it will really be used instead of a desktop computer) or a 13-inch notebook (since I will be carrying it around most of the time around my college campus). Also, i’m not sure if i should take the risk (it is a risk to me) and try out a mac this time around, or just stick with a pc. I’m not sure. So far, the Dell XPS M1330 & M1530 have caught my eye. They are two pretty good laptops, with their only flaw is that they run a little loud after long use. The M1330 is more of a light more portable notebook while the M1530 is more of a desktop replacment. I am also unsure if i should include the Macbook Pro on my “notebooks to watch for” list or not. This is because i feel a new line of macbooks from Apple are on the way. In conclusion, i’m pretty lost ! 😛 … plz help here?

Lion Cereal

I have been eating this Lion Cereal for a while now. Unfortunately, that’s the best Al Bayan Co-Op has to offer. It is actually pretty good. This is the only cereal i have tried that really tastes like what it says it does. You can actually feel the taste of caramel with the crunchiness of the LION BARS we all know. This is the first time i go crazy about cornflakes, but believe me it is delicious. I hope a Snickers Cereal is on the way!

Nathan’s Stupid Ad

Nathan’s
Apparently Nathan’s think that it is not as important to show the food they serve as it is to show people from their staff (or whoever that dude is).

NBK New Branch

NBK New Building
I believe there is a new NBK branch opening soon in Hawalli. It looks like a big one. The building is exceptionally fascinating where it is located – everything beside it is pretty much a little old.

Why Is It Called Bluetooth?

The Viking king Harald Bluetooth united Norway and Denmark. He was renowned as a great communicator, skilled at bringing people together to talk to each other – but he would never have guessed that a thousand years later a powerful technology would be named after him!

I just found out about this while i was checking out the new Sony Ericsson W910 (Which i’m wanting). Pretty cool story.

National Treasure: Book Of Secrets

I am back from what was a really impressive movie. I saw the second sequel of National Treasure starring Nicolas Cage, and i must say it was a blast. There were many parts where you have to think with the characters and actually try to solve the puzzle with them. The film really puts you in the actors’ shoes and makes you try to think – an important aspect of movies that is disregarded by many. One thing before you watch the movie, you have to let your imagination go loos (and i mean really loose). Oh, and if you are going to arrive halfway through the movie with a bag full of popcorn, candy, and nachos and then leave before the movie finishes, please just go to another movie. This movie is pretty good and your wasting a seat for someone who might actually WATCH the movie!
