Before going to a movie, I will normally search the web for review first... If the review is really bad, I will most probably skip the movie unless it is something that I really want to watch... Other than that, I will find out what the movie is all about... I like to know what I'm going to expect from the movie rather than sitting there for an hour only to find out what the movie is all about...

But for 'World War Z', I do it differently... I didn't know what this movie is about... What I know is the leading actor is 'Brad Pitt'... Other than that, I'm totally clueless!!! At first I thought this is a movie about war hence the name 'World War Z'... Guess I'm partially right about my assumption as this movie is indeed about war... But not with humans... The war is between humans and an unknown disease... The unknown disease will turn any human being into zombie once bitten by another so call zombie... Sound familiar right... Yup 'Resident Evil'!!! So if you ask me, zero points for creativity!!! So do I enjoy the movie??? Not really as the story line is so predictable... Nuff said...

The first 'Fast & Furious' movie was one hell of a movie because before this, there was nothing like it being film... As a self proclaim car freak, the movie was more like godsend!!! So I waited patiently for the next one and I couldn't believed it... It sucks BIG time!!! Storyline was disastrous and the only saving grace were the cars... Fast forward a few years later and we have the sixth instalment of the 'Fast & Furious' franchise... Not a bad movie and the quality is definitely on par compare to the fifth instalment which I think is one of the best yet... Storyline was okay and the cars are nice as well with more muscle compare to imports (i like imports but i have a soft spot for muscles as well!!!)...The only problem that I can find is some of the over exaggerated scene where I think is not very possible unless you're some kind of super hero or mutant!!! If they tone down some of the scene and make it more realistic, I will definitely score it higher... Just can't accept it!!! But still I'm giving it a two thumbs up for it and definitely worth your money watching it in the cinema!!!

Woo hoo... The 'Samurai Burger' is back!!! One of my favourite 'McD' burger is finally back... This time they change the fries to criss cut fries... Something different but I still prefer the original one... I'm sure 'McD' will be jam pack nowadays as they are selling those irresistible minion from the movie 'Despicable Me 2' for 'McD Happy Meal' as well... A rather deadly combo if you ask me!!!

I've decided to create a new labels for my blog... Previously, I will put all my '308 Turbo' update under 'Car Freak' which is a general label for all things related to cars... So just like what I did to 'FrankenBenz', I'm creating a dedicated label just for my '308 Turbo' and I name the label as 'Woeful 308 Turbo'!!! I'm sure most '308 Turbo' owner out there will agree to this label...

I really like the '308 Turbo' when it is behaving nicely... But the problem is, throwing tantrum is what it's good at!!! And quite frankly, it is driving me up the wall sometimes... It is a nice drive but maintaining it is a pain in the ass!!! 

Recently I got a special gift from it... Throwing two error code simultaneously!!! The dreaded 'Depollution System Error' is back after fixing it some time back... Last time the error code pop up because of a faulty turbocharger... This time round I'm still not too sure what causes it... Another error code is the infamous 'Gearbox Faulty' code which almost all '308 Turbo' owner with 'AL4' gearbox will get... Luckily with the error code on, I'm still able to drive it... Just that it restrict the gear to 3 only instead of 4 forward gears... 

Send my car to the workshop and after 1 week, it is finally fix... But what is the main problem remain a mystery!!! The mechanic change two of the solenoid in the gearbox and the problem still exist (the solenoid is the most common problem that causes gearbox faulty error in the 'AL4' gearbox... so normally mechanic will change these two solenoid first before doing anything else)... But after changing these two solenoids, the car will sometimes show the error code... So the mechanic decided to unplug all the wiring loom and rewired it back together and also cleaning the throttle body (which I'm not sure why he does that)... After doing all these, the car is back to normal... Even the 'Depollution System Error' code is missing!!! So if you ask me what is the main culprit for these two error code, I really can't tell you... Even my mechanic is puzzled by it... But deep down, I'm very sure the code will reappear again... Is inevitable... Is just a matter of when!!!
