Angie's List, unsolicited emails are not nice

The other day I was searching online for local businesses that provide certain home services and I came across Angie's List. I clicked the "Join" button and came to an online form, as I thought it was free to join at this moment. I filled in the zip code, email address and password fields, unchecked the checkbox to receive email offers and then I clicked the continue button.

I was then sent to a page with prices to use the site. As I didn't want to pay to join the site, I closed the browser tab and continued my search on Google. Today I check my email and I see an email from Angie's List, that was sent to me yesterday. Strange, right? I didn't sign up yesterday, so why am I getting this email from them? I open the email and in the email it says:

Hi Neighbor,

We noticed you recently stopped by Angie's List. Thank you for visiting!

We hope you found the information you were looking for. If not, please reply to this email and let us know.

You're also invited to come back and use promo code REVIEWS30 and receive 30% off your membership.

Please click here to join.

So now I may be on their email list but I never signed up or wanted any emails from them. I never gave permission for this to happen. This is not cool and something that shouldn't happen. Not cool Angie's List, not cool at all.

Anyways, it looks like Angie's List isn't the most trustworthy site out there, read the article: Why Angie’s List Keeps Getting Mixed Reviews.

New 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer

Today the trailer for the upcoming new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie was released and you can watch it below. I was a big fan of the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, cartoon and toys way back when I was a kid so I want to see this movie. Although the turtles do look a little weird in the trailer, not sure what exactly makes them look weird but they seem to be really tall and big and it looks like Shredder will be a skinny guy. What do you think of the trailer? I also included a review done by some movie guys below the trailer who make some good points.

EA has put out a 17-minute video of Battlefield 4 gameplay and it looks amazing and suspenseful at the same time with lots of action. Check it out below.

Battlefield 4: Official 17 Minutes "Fishing in Baku" Gameplay Reveal

The Wolverine movie trailers

Two trailers were released this week of the new The Wolverine movie coming out in July. The movie looks good and will have a lot of action, at least that's what the trailers make me think. Someone made a point on a site saying that it looks to be another superhero movie where the hero doesn't want his powers as they want to be more "human", so he/she loses them and then wants them back again, and watching the trailer it seems that this movie may go that route. Anyways, the movie looks good and I hope to see it in theatres.
