Quick question, so can I use a fake name when recieving money via western union? This would mean that I wouldnt have to show my ID, only a number....anybody have experience with this?

The orange/blue tone to everything was just yucky. Oh yeah, the main character lives in a ghetto that is all orange-tinted with orange-tinted people. Meanwhile, to mentally escape from this crushing poverty of the body, he plays a full-immersion video game (which sucks in that no rules are clear and no logic follows the gameplay). He apparently earns an income playing the game but he is revealed to not be an employee of the game company?. Lots of non-speaking pauses later the story drags on slowly. He uses a glitchy orange computer interface with an operating interface that is so visually annoying and I can only suspect a Microsoft future release.
Meanwhile, I the viewer, ask basically why he is wasting her precious time in some moronic game when he barely has the necessities of life? Oh yeah, playing games is fun, but what is the point? While he is piddling her life away playing some lousy even-more-orange-tinted lame full-immersion video game his dog runs off (probably looking for an owner who pays at least a moment of attention to it and feeds it regularly) or is stolen from the woman (while she is ignoring her lousy orange-tinted reality).
Meanwhile she obsesses over some game her game-playing team lost the entire uninteresting movie. Yawn. So she wants to be the best of the best, go get them Ash Catchem (got to bore us all). Golly, this main character sucks as a human being as well and has no redeeming qualities aside from his physical beauty (which he could barter for some manner to escape his crushing poverty).
So he reaches the "Real" level and it, at least, not sucks horribly and he is sent to kill a former comatose teammate mentally living in the "Real" level. Finally the sucky boring bland orange-tinted movie is no longer a tedious chore to watch, but has the potential to say something along the lines "the main character is trapped in imaginary computer-generated time travel and she is actually in the real world now". Perhaps he will do the murder deed and live in the real world now? Well, he kills the guy and he vanishes in a digital effect. Wow! Thanks idiotic director. You suck, you suck so very much, director.
Here the director had an iota of a chance to redeem himself slightly by burying this lousy lame moronic cruddy movie with a philosophical twist.
The director could have said, "The REAL WORLD is there and if you live in it and contribute to it to make it better, it won't be some cruddy blue-tinted poverty land straight out of Korean runaway blockbuster "2009: Lost Memories". A clever way to make this suck-tacular movie a agonizingly slow lesson on basic civic pride (for the 1% of the viewers that haven't found something actually entertaining to watch at this point or are movie-masochists).
Nope, director. The director had to screw this all up by tossing in some cruddy digital effect and ruin all chances of redemption for this awfully lousy movie which was a waste of money, a waste of time, and a waste of viewer trust.
After that, it ends. Good riddance. I hope the director chokes on it. I'm putting this HACK on my "avoid at all costs" list for any other films his name is attached to.

Alright brah, i have a LOT of experience with using western union over the past many years.
1. No, as long as the sender sets up a security question and gives you the answer, and checks off the "receiver doesnt need to show ID to pick up money". Although, from experience, the people at the store might be suspicious because of this, or might not be aware of it so you might have to try to explain it to them if they ask for the ID. Which, again, will make them fairly suspicious
2. There might be a $$$$ limit on how much you can pick up without having to show an ID, i can't quite remember. (i think it might be like $800-1200 that requires id regardless, but i honestly could be wrong/cant fully remember) if that is the case than they'd either have to send a few times in smaller amounts. Also, most places can only cash out so much at a time, so if you get more than they will cash out they are going to give you the rest in western union checks with the fake name you used on it... aka you wont be able to cash them.
3. Be careful, if it's too sketchy you might not want to do it.Current Stable:
