Kaspersky Lab Hosts Special Mission Impossible Rogue Nation Movie Screening

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We would like to thank Kaspersky Lab, especially Corporate Communications Manager for South East Asia Sanjeev Nair who flew all the way from Malaysia, just to give their media friends a special movie treat - Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation at the posh Director's Club of SM Megamall Fashion Hall.

I think Sanjeev is a geek too when he told us his favorite character in the movie was Benjie "the computer expert" Dunn (played by actor Simon Pegg) instead of Ethan "the action man" Hunt (played by Tom Cruise).

Most men will idolize the actor in the lead role, but nowadays geek is the new sexy. This is why men who can code and make apps will rule the world, and of course, hailed by most of the women of the universe!

The guys with the Dadbod are the real deal hunks of the 21st century! Those who find time playing video games, reading comics, gawking at cosplayers, collecting miniature sculptures of anime and retro toys, staying tuned to the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory and other geeky sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, techie, etc., TV series, and especially those attending the Geeks on a Beach tech confab in Boracay this August 20 to 21 are more than meets the eye, flab, belly, and comic con shirts.

Sanjeev was telling us the story of how his friends tried many times to fool him in saying naughty Tagalog words during his visits here in the Philippines. But the guy from Kaspersky is just too wise to be tricked. Just as how secured we would be with their security solutions. We won't be easily manipulated even though we are nerdy geeks.

Two thumbs up with Sanjeev and Dennison of AstigPH

Snack Time pop-corn and drinks
The movie was splendid as usual. Just like the previous Mission Impossible movies. Tom Cruise continues to play a formidable character of Ethan Hunt, leader of the group who are members of the IMF organization. Who wouldn't want to be Ethan Hunt, but many would prefer having his good looks and skills combined together with a "tekkie" mind of Benjie Dunn.

His former team mates join him such as Jeremy Renner, Vhing Rhames, and we already mentioned Simon Pegg who gives the much needed comic relief in such an action-packed and complicated story of deception and conspiracy. New in the movie are Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin. The bad guys are fairly convincing enough adversaries. But I wouldn't want to give any spoilers since many have not yet seen this new movie.

The team takes on their most impossible mission yet: Eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are. But we know who the good guys are in this movie. But the good guys don't always win every time. 

There's the crackling of the pop-corns and sipping of the drinks did not distract me as I slouch on the comfy reclining seat of the Director's Club Cinema while watching the movie. I wanted to pee sometime in the middle of the movie but had to control it and wait for the "slower" scenes.

Thanks again to Kaspersky Lab for the wonderful movie treat. Until the next event or special movie screening!


Hey, I'm going to do a short movie clip of this event but it would have to wait after a few days since there's so many pending stuff to do on my list! So watch out for it on our YouTube channel:
