Transformers 4: Age of Extinction 4DX Screening with KitKat #breakommendation

I was just saying how I needed a break from it all and Nuffnang and KitKat's invitation for the 4DX screening of the Transformers 4: Age of Extinction couldn't have come at a better time. It was held at the new Bonifacio High Street Cinemas, located at the new Bonifacio High Street building which isn't completely done yet.

(Commercial: To all Friends fans out there, a Pottery Barn store will open in this new wing.)

(That famous apothecary table might be available in the store along with the bird cage and that room divider in Phoebe and Rachel's apartment. Yay, right?)

Anyway, the movie house looks exactly like how other Ayala cinemas look like but the ticket booth kinda took my breath away for a second.

I think that amazed look on my face (that probably all the Nuffies saw) is proof that I haven't really gone out for a long while.

Upon registration, the Nuffies gave us food stubs for a couple of sandwiches from Quiznos for dinner.

Can I just say I hate how my hips look here.

After dinner, we went back to the cinemas to register with KitKat this time.

The girls manning the booth were really friendly and patient with everyone, I was thinking I can't do what they do…plus, they were a lot younger than me so I probably won't get hired in the first place. They gave away loot bags that have different kinds of KitKats and other freebies inside.

(Another commercial: While we were waiting for the movie to start, we were watching people fill their cones with ice cream at Family Mart. I've got one thing to say about that: Students are NOTORIOUS when it comes to all-you-cans.)

After all the waiting - we were scheduled to watch the last full show - we all went inside the 4DX cinema. It looks like your typical cinema except I thought that the seats were more comfortable.

When the movie started, the seats started moving ever so slightly that it makes you think if it really is moving. To be quite honest, the whole "ride" made me really dizzy that by the time Optimus Prime and the rest of the gang were "rolling out", I was already sitting on the aisle. I also had to take the shades off, too, because I was pretty sure that's what triggered my dizziness. The boyfriend sat with me on the aisle until the movie ended which I found really sweet (Oo, mababaw lang ako). There were also other environmental effects like cold wind and this scent that smells really bad whenever a car/robot appears on screen. There was also this thing that poked us on the leg that made me jump.

I can't believe I actually sat through an entire boy-movie without falling asleep considering the fact that I wasn't able to sleep in the afternoon and I had a few beers in me. Actually, I've been watching a whole lot of boy-movies lately so I'm proud of myself. I enjoyed the movie despite the dizziness. I just thought maybe it kinda lacked some kind of story… I'm saying that probably because I haven't seen the movies before that one so my opinion doesn't count.

Anyway, that was a fun experience. Not only because there's free chocolates but because it's my first time to actually attend a Nuffnang screening.

Incidentally, it's my first actual movie date with the boyfriend because we usually do movie marathons at home instead of going out because we think it's much sweeter that way.

Thanks to KitKat and Nuffnang for the opportunity to actually see Transformers 4: Age of Extinction in the new 4DX theater without spending a single peso…and for the free chocolates, too, of course!
