What a pile of crap...

So I finished watching Babel, and was I disappointed... This movie is the biggest pile of cow crap stacked in 2 hours and 14 minutes, the story was lame, the acting was boring, and the style of connecting stories as if this was Syriana just doesn't work.
I am not sure if the whole point of showing the stories is supposed to trigger emotions of compassion to people with disabilities, sheep herders in the middle of the north African desert, or illegal aliens trying to cross the border to continue on with their lives? There are two things I am sure about after watching this movie:

1. There is no limit to human stupidity,
2. Behind every crappy situation, there was a pea-brain involved.

Spoiler Warning: Don't continue to read if you plan to watch this crap.

1. Kids are kids, but kids also know that shooting live ammo into moving vehicles is a stupid idea. One died, natural selection at its finest. You have to feel sorry for the dad though, another example of why people should use birth control...

2. Just because you are deaf, that doesn't mean it is okay to do drugs and get naked in front of cops... I am sure her mom committed suicide because she realized how stupid her daughter was.

3. If you know that you have a trip that involves multiple police check points, don't get drunk. If you are drunk and operating a vehicle, you deserve a cap busted up yours.

4. Since when having an exotic vacation is an excuse to leave your kids at home with a baby sitter? That is not parenting, and what happened to Brad Pitt and his wife is Karma... Just ask Earl.

5. Don't blame God or Language barriers for your misfortunes, shit happened because you're stupid.

On the offensive

How do news agencies work? Do they wait for someone to show up under the spot light before showing scandals and conspiracies? Or is it karma's way of putting everyone in his place?

Before you start scratching your head, and cursing the day you knew my blog existed, let me point out what I am ranting about. A couple of days ago, president Putin went all out on the US and how it is being a bully in the world and people started talking about how a second Cold war is about to start and Yada Yada Yada, well I guess not with the way Russia's military is going.

First of all, I personally think that any Army based on a draft is an army full of weaknesses, no matter how big in numbers it might be. But an army that has its soldiers "used for sex", forget about it.

On a different note, check this out. I am glad Milton - the stapler dude from Office Space - got a new name and job!

We are all Doomed...

Back in 2005, I was excited when I heard that there was a Splinter Cell movie in the making. Not any more...

I've just finished watching the DVD of "Doom", and I was kinda surprised by how lame, and lacking to originality the story was. How many times are we going to expect the Space Marines to come to save the day from Aliens? I felt like I was watching a modern version of the Movie Aliens, with better graphics, cooler guns, and some new scientific imagination, but as I said before, it was lacking originality.

I think the problem with movies that are inspired by video games, is that they are quite stupid. Which makes me wonder, why do we -I personally- enjoy the games so much? Is it because when I am playing the game, I don't expect to think about the story line as much? Or is it because when I am watching a movie, I expect to see something that will make me feel that I made a solid investment with my 10 dollars?

On a side note, the idea of Marines in Space is a cool idea. But with the emergence of ballistic missiles capable of blowing up satellites, I am kinda pessimistic about the deployment of the idea. As I am sure the idea of having Marines flying over you might actually piss off a lot of people in this world, including Army folks!
