Movie Review

March 29, 2007

This week’s review is on 300, Blood Diamond, The Departed, Tazza: The High Rollers.  Again, I won’t go in detail about the movie as there’s millions of reviews on the net.  Here’s my humble reviews in a simple, short review with a scale of 1 to 10.

Blood Diamond

Powerful in every way, Very sad, Hotel Rwanda II, T.I.A. (This is Africa), will be on my all time favorites. 9.5 out of 10

Tazza: The High Rollers.

Tazza” is a Korean word referring to a gambler at the height of his powers. It would be rated much lower without Yun-sik Back.  6.2  out of 10

300

Absolutely stunning visually… It could be better with 60 min.  long.  8.1 out of 10

The Departed

 

Scorsese’s!!! Remake!! Can’t bit original one! Moo Gan Do (AKA ‘Mou Gaan Dou’ ‘Infernal Affairs’).  7.5 out of 10

This week’s Foreign Policy List predicts FIVE DATES that just might ultimately change the world. 

And the dates are…

January 20, 2014
What happens: Bush’s records go public

August 8, 2008

Why these dates are matters?

Personally, I can’t wait for January 20, 2014 on Bush’s record.


Quebec elects minority government

March 27, 2007

Quebec’s federalist Liberal Party was re-elected as a minority government in provincial elections Monday.  Quebecers set aside the dream of independence Monday in a once-in-a-century election that pushed the province to the right after promises of private health care and a tougher approach to minorities.

With about two-thirds of the ballots counted, the Liberals stood to take 48 seats in the 125-seat provincial legislature. The Action Democratique de Quebec, a pro-business party catering largely to those tired of the independence movement, was slated to take 41 seats. The separatist Parti Quebecois stood in third place with 36 seats.

A Human Error

March 27, 2007

It was a Human Error to blame;

Human error sent the 8,800-tonne Queen of the North onto an island on March 22, 2006. The bridge crew did not change course and mechanical failure was not a factor, says a BC Ferries internal report released Monday. Lilgert and second officer Keven Hilton, who was lunching in the mess at the time of the crash, refused to testify about the final 14 minutes of the voyage, from when the ferry emerged from Grenville Channel until it impacted on Gil Islandon the advice of their lawyer.

Is Canadian Justice System seriously soft or far-advanced by letting these two key crew members not co-operating with BC Ferries’ internal investigation?  Shouldn’t they come forward and tell the truth?  I’m even surprised that the media has not highlighted the story about them.
