Batman v Superman v Me and my Pop Corn

When I was young, I had this crazy fantasy that I will be a superhero someday.

I would often draw in my notebook my possible costumes and even had a list of my superheroes name that I will use in case a beautiful female reporter asks me during the post-battle-with-a-sinister-villain interview.

My weekends are spent watching Super Friends, the DC animated TV series featuring Superman, Batman and Robin, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and the Wonder Twins with their pet monkey Gleek.

I’m already in my thirties but the illusion of being able to wear a cape, fly high and run as fast as a bullet train still tickle my imagination.  Now, if the Gods from Planet Krypton can read this, I hope they can lend me the powers of Clark Kent even for a limited time only. Or if only I am rich as Bruce Wayne, I will build my very own Batmobile that has special features like traffic-detection alarm, videoke machine and a donut holder. I also welcome a ride in Wonder Woman’s invisible jet if I will be offered.

Simply nostalgic.

That’s why when it was announced that the live action flick Batman v Superman was announced several months ago, the DC fanboy in me just went berserk (in a good way) and followed every updates I can find online.

Last March 29,  I was fortunate to be invited by Devant, makers of the most technologically advanced and smart TVs in the country today, for the special block screening of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” at Greenbelt 3 Cinema 5 in Makati City.

With fellow bloggers, Devant’s corporate partners, and other VIPs, I experienced all an exciting evening to be among the first to watch the thrilling and most anticipated movie event of the year, where Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) clash in an epic collision for supremacy and power between two of the world’s greatest super heroes, a monumental collision to gain the trust and confidence of the people of the world as to who will be their ultimate savior.

For more than two hours, I was that young boy again munching a bag of popcorn while watching with awe the Dark Knight slugging it out with the Man of Steel. Not to mention the amazing moments of the eye-catching stunning beauty of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot).

And that’s not all as premium loot bags and exciting raffles prizes were given away by Devant for lucky moviegoers prior to the screening, much to their delight.

Devant also reminded their guests that the “Battle for Supremacy” promo is still ongoing. For every purchase of Devant’s big-screen TVs like the 65-inch UHD200 Ultra HD TV, the 55 and 50-inch UHV200 Ultra HD TVs, the 58 and 50-inch DTV700 Smart TVs, customers can enjoy quality home entertainment by pairing them with equally impressive home entertainment accessories, all offered at special add-on prices.

Amaze yourself, friends and family with the AD-448 Android Dongle or MPC-01 Mini PC accessories, while watching movies or TV series marathons and listen to every word, note or shrill through Devant’s incredibly sounding SB-110 Devant 2.2 Channel Soundbar System (110W) and SBS-200 Devant2.1 Channel Soundbar System (200W).

And the good news is these incredible Devant TVs come with built-in Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting–Terrestrial (ISDB-T) receivers, the Japanese standard for digital TV and radio broadcast. ISDB-T is the digital broadcast platform approved by the Philippine government through the National Telecommunications Commission as it makes the big switch to digital broadcasting and communications.

This makes Devant the first TV brand in the country whose built-in ISDB-T receivers are ready to receive 1080p resolution digital broadcast signals minus a set-top box, cable or satellite connection.

Other benefits of the ISDB-T receivers include the Channel Variation Track feature, where each TV channel’s frequency band can be divided into 13 segments resulting to new multiple channels, and this standard, together with Devant’s LED technology, guarantees superb audio system for clearer, cleaner sound levels. The Reception Clarity Plus feature assures strong resistance against poor reception conditions, the Electronic Program Guide provides consumers with regularly updated broadcast schedules of broadcast stations running on ISDB-T, and Devant TVs also allow ISDB-T recording to record high-resolution digital feed through an external drive.
