A Movie Offer!!

As usual, the first thing I do when I come home from work in the evenings is to switch on my computer before I land myself in the bathroom....
As usual, the first site I go to is my
As usual, it is nothing unusual to receive emails ....

But it is very unusual this evening when I received one email from a Film company!!

I read it few times before I can really grasped what it said....

This company is offering me money to write movie synopsis!! Actually it is not a company la.. it is just a film website.. hahahaa.. don't be alarmed, I was just exaggerating as usual... hahhaa...

Here is an excerpt from the email....

XXXX (not x-rated company, offers synopsis (movie summary) to its readers so it is a bit different from other movie review blogs. Should you agree with my rate please indicate which movies from Asian countries you like to write (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, etc).

That means you only write draft after you watch a movie either online, download, or you can purchase your own movie. After finish your draft you can email me and I will edit and modify them whenever necessary before publish them in XXXXX

For further enquiries, suggestions, or even requests you can mention in your next email. Let's see if I can accommodate your requests.

There are some parts I deleted.. lol.. but the thing is ... do I have to buy my own VCDs to watch and then draft about the summary of the show? I can online and download, that might take hours....

I think this is not for me... hahahhaa... no time lar.. even if I have time to write, how much should I request from them? One original movie VCD is not cheap....furthermore, I cannot be buying pirated ones, right? (*innocent face*) :)

Sorry to mislead... my title of this post should be Movie Reviews Offer :p


  1. u can always download online n watch n review..

    another 'innocent' way is to google it up to read what majority have said about that movie :P

  2. got x-rated ones or not? If got, i join in the synopsis writing also ...:P

  3. It sounds like you would be losing money for each synopsis that you wrote. Unless you were planning to see the movie anyway.

  4. Hmmm... I've heard about this sort of companies when I was still in the newsroom. But those film companies would provide us with free, unreleased version of movies for us to review... not the other way around. Something like the booksneeze program. They gv u stuff to watch, u get to keep it, and the only thing you need to do is review. But never hear before they ask you to 'buy' ur own movie so that you can review from them. that is rather absurd to me.

    My advice is... play cheat if you wanna review for them. LOL!

  5. Well, the whole thing sounds a bit shady to me, I'm glad you are not doing it, maybe it could be a scam of some kind.

  6. Yeah-lah, need to be careful with these mails. I received an email promising to pay min. USD 10.00 for every post I write as their guest blog author, also ask for my paypal account no. I din't reply them because I have no paypal a/c.

  7. Sigh...I never get any such offers. Not a cent for me... Sobsss!!!

  8. That sounds interesting and if I were you....I probably will grab this offer....
    You can simply download the movie online...My hubby is doing some movie downloading everyday 24/7 and it was pretty fast actually.

  9. Hello Reana :) just visiting ur blog.. nice header and i like ur humour :D

  10. Yaya... play cheat will do! LOL!

  11. tell me if there is books offers hehehehe

  12. Yea, same with time for downloading. So need to buy and i choose to buy a dvd fake..oopss! just kidding:)

  13. Movie review....pua chu kang movie how to review? ha ha ha

  14. I received it too..and I dont believe it hehehe..If I do have a movie synopsis, better go to the right channel hehehe


Thank you, readers!
