Un film un peu futuristique, dans le genre Star Wars, qui ne me fait normalement pas tripper. Mais dans ce cas-ci, le film était génial, car il y avait de l’action, de l’humour, et une bonnie histoire. J’ai bien aimer l’histoire en général. En gros, c’est l’histoire d’un vaisseau “Serenity” qui fait des vols dans la galaxie et qui déteste les gens au pouvoir , l’alliance, qui essaye de reigner sur tout la galaxie et de rendre tout le monde parfait. Il y a aussi des genre de monstres (des humains rendu monstre) qui mange les autres humains, un peu comme des vampires/cannibales. Au cours de l’histoire, nous allons apprendre toutes les connections entre ces gens. Un gros 8.3 pour l’action, l’histoire, les effets speciaux, et l’humour. Good job!

Ouais, disons que le directeur est assez hot. J’ai bien aimer ce film la, mais j’ai trouver qu’il n’y avait pas assez d’action. Je penses que c’est la ‘trailer’ qui m’a mi sur la mauvaise piste. Je m’attendais a un film remplis d’action et d’humour. C’est plutôt un film assez sombre, l’histoire de la vie d’un marchand d’armes (Yuri Orlov joué par Nicolas Cage) qui vends des armes à plein de pays. Il apprend à vivre avec le fait que ses armes tuent des gens innocents en continuellement se dire “It’s not our war” (Ce n’est pas notre guerre). Mais c’est tu peux comprendre que ca le tue à l’intérieur.
Je penses qu’il manquait seulement le classique sens de l’humour a Nicolas Cage pour rendre se film un peu mieux. Malgré que le fait que le film était super sombre est vraiment cool. Le directeur a réussis a piquer ma curiosité par rapport au gens qui vendent des armes aux pays en guerres. Personellement, je prends le côté de Jack Valentine (joué par Ethan Hawke) qui poursui Yuri depuis plusieurs années en essayant de le coincé et le mettre en prison. Très bon film en général, mais ne vous attendez pas a voir beaucoup d’action. Chapeau à Andrew qui a même réussi a “caster” son propre fils (Jack Niccol) dans le film en tant que le jeune Général Nicolai. Trop cool!

I can’t believe it. Arnold made the decision to execute this man. “After studying the evidence, searching the history, listening to the arguments and wrestling with the profound consequences, I could find no justification for granting clemency,” he said to the press. During his 24 years in jail, he has earned respect from people such as Jamie Foxx, Snoop Dogg (a former Crips member as well), Bishop Desmond Tutu and the Reverend Jesse Jackson, and also earned Nobel Peace Prize nomiations for his teachings against gang violence.
Why would you get rid of a guy like that, a guy that now does all this good stuff in order to fight the gang violence. A guy that finally gang members can look up as a role model and have someone that understands them to help them get better and all. He is in a position to help a lot of the young gang members find the right path. I hope that his writings will be distributed to a wide audience even after his death. Tuesday will be a sad day and most probably a very violent day as people will be mad for this execution. Still can’t believe this decision of the governor. Execution seems like such a barbarian thing to do. They should really take their Canadian neighbor as a model on this one. Americans are monsters. It’s just hard to wrap my head around this one.
BBC news says, “Williams is scheduled to receive a lethal injection at 0001 (0801 GMT) at San Quentin prison, north of San Francisco.” Rest in peace man.

I heard a rumor a couple years ago that accused China of being so cruel because they were executing people in stadiums in front of a public. How cruel and barbarian you will say. These crazy communists just don’t respect the right of humans like we do in america. You may be right on the fact that executions are cruel, and that maybe Chinese don’t respect the human rights. But please don’t be so ignorant as to completely forget that we do executions here too, in front of a public even. When I say here, I should add that I do not mean New-Zealand or my native (beautiful) country Canada. I really mean the U.S. Sorry for you guys, I have been bashing at you lately, but I can’t help it.
I am writing of course of the trial of Stanley Tookie Williams who is facing the death penalty scheduled on Tuesday at 12:01am. He is facing the death penalty for having killed four people, which he still denies after 20 years of jail time. Now I am not here to judge on wether he did it or not. I just think that death penalty is not something anybody should have to face. Especially when this person represent a great opportunity for the government to learn how to tackle organized crime. And is now a good example for the new generation. It wouldn’t be the first time that the state decide to kill someone even though he is not guilty. To paraphrase Corma Helzer, “We recycle plastic, we recycle glass — so why throw away a human life when it’s been made into something useful?”.
We are now in the hands of Arnold Schwarzenegger to decide if he will let Tookie live a life in the penetentuary or if they will execute him. I think I will post another post tomorrow as I am imagining that they will decide this by then since the execution is ‘supposed’ to be firs thing tuesday morning. I pray that it doesn’t go there and hope that the right decisions will be made.

Apparently, the U.S. agreed for a non-binding ‘talk’ of how they could potentially reduced their gas emission. I guess it is a step forward, but man seriously, the Kyoto protocol is asking to reduced the gas emission by 5% of the 1990 emissions. It doesn’t seem like asking that much from countries in order to save our planet. And the U.S. state department spokesman Adam Ereli has the guts to say that “If you want to talk about global consciousness, I’d say there’s one country that is focused on action… dialogue… co-operation and… helping the developing world, and that’s the United States,” I couldn’t believe it.
I bet if you would tell Bush and its administration that there is oil in the North Caps, he would be interrested in saving it. I liked what Clinton had to say about these decision “they are flat wrong”. I mean, there is a guy with his head at the right place, he might have made bad calls when he was in the White House, but he is definitively the best U.S. president they ever had… and they wanted him to resign. What a bunch of morons…
Having said that, we want our Canadian government to resign and he is not that bad either. I wonder what is going to happen with that. I am personally hoping for a more powerful liberal government just to shut the PQ party. They have a big mouth and I am tired of hearing about them all the time, trying to stir things up. We never hear about them in situations like the Climate Summit in Montréal… Of course ’cause there are no chances of pushing there separation politics there. Hmmm pretty sad.
