Warpigs

I tried watching Warpigs tonight. It is a WW2 movie that tries to be a Dirty Dozen rip off but just can't do it.

I actually made it through the whole movie, Thanks to some judicious fast forwarding. It is a waste of time. Luckily I had booze. :)

What the .... love for France?!?!?!/

Damn this is late. But ................

Wow. Someone beat me to the punch using the vitriol I would use. A friend showed me a post by a Facebook "friend" of his that lambasted those who purport to love/support France but are just posers.

He wrote:

With all the ‪#‎tragedyhipsters‬ and ‪#‎hoponthebandwagon‬ people out there I have to wonder how many of the people who now espouse a love of France/Paris, a support of France, supported the whole freedom fry fucktardery?

Well said. Extremely well said. How many of those who shit on France for not supporting the inane war on Iraq that Bush 2 lied to the world to get are now trying to show love for France I KNOW that some of my Family in the USA are that hypocritical.

I lost a "Facebook Friend", someone who had been a real friend for years before I went home, over this fucktardery. She had used Facebook to change her profile picture to have the image of the French flag superimposed over it. This was her way of "showing support" for France after the Paris attacks. A couple of days later when the #tragedyhipsters were bringing up Beirut she made a post castigating people for not showing support for Beirut but gushing about Paris.

What can I say, I couldn't help myself and simply said "Didn't you just use the image of the French flag while not saying anything about Beirut?"

For some strange reason we are no longer Friends. She never blocked me so I may just have called her on her hypocrisy again but now I seem to be blocked. Yet, life, real life, goes on. Despite these first world bullshit problems and hypocrites.

Fucktards.

Movie: Tokarev/Rage .... Avengers Grimm.

I started watching Tokarev with Nick Cage tonight. It is also known as Rage. It sucks. Real bad. So bad that I fast forwarded a bit before just shutting it off. Holy shit what a shite movie.

Then I started watching Avengers Grimm. It isn't that good a movie but the fight scenes are damn good. That can't save it but they scenes are good. Unlike Tokarev I may FF it but I will probably finish watching it.

Oh Casper van Diem how far you have fallen.

Ok. I couldn't finish this one either but it wasn't as bad as Tokarev.

Maybe I just needed more booze?

Hmmmm .... no they both still would have sucked.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Tonights movie is Mad Max: Fury Road.

It definitely has the feel of the Mad Max I know and love. A gritty, surreal, nihilistic future. It reminds me a lot of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. A lot of bald people instead of a maniac with a mohawk. :)

27:45 in and I can't believe that much time has passed. The movie has kept me engrossed and entertained. Not a lot of movies can say that for the amount of time that has passed.

Furiosa intrigues me. She is a bad ass.

Max as a blood bank is interesting too. I am wondering just how he will break free and if he will end Nux the Recipients life quickly or not. ;)

Oh, and THAT is a sandstorm!

Wow. Now THAT is a death wish! Almost makes me want to sing "You Light Up My Life." :)

Seriously? Some fucktard is shooting off fireworks. It is August fucking 29th not Canada Day. Ok, now I am going to have to find out who this fucking idiot is a few streets over. My dog does NOT like fireworks. This asshole disturbed my dog. But I digress.

Blood Bank 1 Nux 0. Oh just cut his fucking hand off.

Heh ... poor Max. Still not having a lot of luck with shotgun ammo.

They have it made it interesting the way he is wrestling with his ... damn ... women bathing ... demons.

Damn. I really like Furiosa.

Interesting how the concept of Valhalla has been worked into the new society.

Hmmm ... I really thought Max would have shot Nux once the chain was cut.

Heh   ... kick the chastity belt and run after the truck. I was going to say don't worry he will be back but Furiosa took care of that.

She is making the mistake of thinking Max actually cares about how Immortaln Joe will reward him. He wants Joe DEAD! He may not acknowledge it but he does.

Damn I am liking this movie.

Damn Nux is like a Terminator.

And Max is still acting, or reacting, like Max.

The more Max saws at the mask the more I think of the song "Chip Away the Stone". and he is free. So is Nux.

Bye Nux. Or is it?

Damn. I just realized. What happened to his bad knee?

God damn Furiosa is fucking amazing! What was I talking about?

And Nux got recognized.

Holy shit those guys know how to drive their cycles.

I guess this means they are working together?

And there is Nux in all of his aluminium glory.

Damn. I thought she was dead.

And now she is.

God damn. The movie is only half over. It feels like I just started watching it but it has been on forever.

Holy shit. 2 with one shot. FURIOSA! FURIOSA!

And Nux is still alive and kicking. Or at least slamming his head.

Oh Nux. Fuck her. Fuck Larry and Barry. Fuck her.

Damn. That is fucked up. Yes, you had a baby brother you fucked up fucktard.

So, Nux is coming around?

"I am the scales of justice." You are the next mother fucker to die.

Redemption. Now there is something to die for.

Furiosa has a good memory.

I guess the grass isn't greener. Damn!

Heh, back the way you came.

And Nox is still styling and profiling. :)

"What are you doing?"
"Praying."
"To who?"
"Anyone that is listening."
Damn!

Nox and Red up in a tree. :)

God damn!

So the sniper crone carries the seeds. Interesting.

Damn. Sniper crone is a good shot.
"One man. One bullet."

Damn Nox is useful!

Nice fight scene.

Kill the guitarist. Make it hurt. Why is he still alive?

I mean. Damn. WTF?!? The guitarist died. Eventually. Didn't he?

God damn. Furiosa! What a face rip!

Damn. Nox!

Damn. That is the Max I know.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Oh yeah. Damn. Should have remembered that.

"Max. My name is Max."

God damn I like this movie. :)

"Where must we go ...
we who wander the Wasteland
in search of our better selves?"
The First History Man

Watch this movie!!!!

What the ... trending bs?!?!?!/

So ... I logged onto Facebook to be told about something on Instagram.



Seriously ... I need Facebook to tell me about what is trending on another Social Media site? Oh ... wait ... I get it. Facebook is THAT hard up that it is leeching off of what other Social Media sites have trending. Now it makes sense.

Not.

Fuck off Facebook. If I wanted to know about anyone on Instagram I would be actually following them on Instagram.

You, Facebook, are really grasping.

Anonymous Caller Rejection

How unfortunate for Eastlink customers.

Rogers offers a service called Anonymous Caller Rejection for home phones. It gives anonymous callers the option of showing their number or not being able to reach you. They even make it simple to use. Dial *77, wait for the busy signal, hang up. Voila it is activated.

Eastlink doesn't offer anything like that. Their Customer Service people can't even tell you if they plan to offer something like that.

Considering that telemarketers are now blocking their numbers to show up as private/anonymous numbers this feature is fantastic. Which makes it frustrating to be an Eastlink customer.

When I talked to their Customer Service about this the first thing they said was "Yes, we have a service."

I said: "I hope you don't mean *60 because that  only works if the number is showing."

He replied: "No I think it is *67 ... ohhh .... no it is *60."

"Yeah, As I said, that is useless if they block their number."

"You could use call trace to ..."

I cut him off "Call Trace is ONLY useful if the Police actually want to go after a telemarketer. Even then you usually have to trace a call 4 or more times before they will do anything. IF they actually want to try and go after them."

"That is true."

"This is unfortunate. It might be time to think about switching. Have a nice day." And I hung up..

Jurassic World

The movie tonight is Jurassic World.

A friend gave me a copy of a CAM version he got. Considering it was recorded in a theater it is DAMN good

Strangely enough, it was recorded in a theater in South Korea. How do I know? It has Korean Subtitles. My Korean is pretty weak after so long away but I actually found it interesting to try and follow along. :) I will be saving this copy.

It starts off mundane enough. Ok Parents aren't going.

Kids that are related to someone in the park will be the focus. Homages are paid to Jurassic Park and Hammond.

It is interesting so far. The whole idea of marketing a hybrid to a company.

The new version of Hammond, Masrani, thinks he can fly a helicopter. Heh.

Helicopter pilot is throwing up.
Aunt "Are you ok?" 
Masrani "He is just being dramatic." 
Well played. :)

Damn Pratt has the raptors well trained.

I am liking it so far. Looking forward to the field test.

"Maybe progress should lose for once." Word.

25 minutes in and I am definitely being entertained.

God damn, I never would have thought it but the Hangul is making me nostalgic about my time in South Korea.

Ok, back to the movie, Pratt's character, Owen, and the aunt, Claire, almost have a thing going. Will it evolve? Will she make him instrumental in saving the new kids on the block ... I mean in the park? Only time will tell.

"Oh Shit!" Yeah. Damn. The hybrid is on the loose!

God damn! It is on the move. Makes T-Rex look like a pussy!

"It's in the cage! It's in there with you!"

Oh yeah, he's dead.

And because Pratt sliced the gas line ... he's alive. Damn. I have to remember that one for the zombie apocalypse. Better than zombie blood and guts.

Ok, so the asshole who wants to weaponize the raptors is an asshole. What an epiphany. Hope the raptors eat him. Heh ... they probably will. :)

Easy to see where Pratt and the raptors will be heading.

Some tough brotherly love on the topic of divorce.

Really? Kayaking through dino areas. Fucktards. Where is the new chaos theory exponent?!?!?

Here comes some food. I mean an attack team with non-lethal weapons.

So much for the tracker. So much for the attack team.

Damn she is badass. I bet you regret making her now. If you were smart you would. But you can't see beyond the error of your ways can you?

"Evacuate the island." Too late.

Owen: "You made a genetic hybrid. Raised it in captivity. She is seeing all of this for the first time. She does not even know what she is. She will kill everything that moves."

Ok, so, they used DNA to create a prehistoric douchebag.

Masrani: You think the animal is contemplating its own existence?

Owen: "She is learning where she fits on the food chain and I'm not sure you want her to figure that out."

DAMN!


"All of this exists because of me. If I don't inovate someone else will." You are such a good little soldier aren't you. Don't question. Just do. My father fought your kind back in the day ... what were you called then ... oh yeah Nazis. I was just following orders. Fucktard.

And now she worries about her nephews. Wow she is so ignorant about her nephews.

I am still not liking Claire. Owen is great.

The rescue is on.

So the genetically created dinosaur is hunting for sport. Like the fucking piece of shit dentist that killed Cecil the Lion. What a piece of shit.

Damn.

And I got so wrapped up in watching the movie that I forgot to type anything. Speaks volumes about the movie.

Is that the old Jurassic Park main building?!?!? Nice homage.

Very nice homage.

Ok, this movie wants me to watch the Jurassic Park movies and THEN this movie again. Well done. :)

Moral of the story ... always keep your weapon on you. And be able to run. RUN!

Another homage.

"Its like the fox in the hen house." Someone really needs to kill that piece of shit. Soon.

"That's a first." No second for you fodder.

Bwahahahahaha .... an air raid siren!!!

Ok, Claire and Pratt are definitely going to be knocking boots.

"You are all relieved. There is a new team on the ground." A team of cunts led by a cunt. Ok Pratt is leading them, not the Ingen cunt.

She looks fine all sweaty.

"I am their alpha." Heh.

"We'll always be brothers."

"No matter what!" Word!

"Your boyfriend is a badass." Heh.

Go Raptors!!!

"Watch your 6! Raptors got a new alpha." And carnage ensues.

Damn!

I like this movie. :)

Damn!

"Please no, don't tell your mom about that ever." Heh :)

Oh fuck me. The friend zone.

It is kind of funny. InGen is still the villain but managed to make enough inroads to really fuck things up.

I can't believe the InGen fucktard is still alive. Come on Blue. Kill the piece of shit!

Go Blue! Go Blue!

God damn!

And double god damn. Bryce, I mean Claire, looks good. :)

Get some more teeth!

"Why did you have to make it personal?" Bwahahahahaha!

And that is a lot more teeth!

DAMN!!!! I guess the fishy one was hungry!

Heh. She had to warn them that their parents were coming.

Ouch. I think her sister is pissed.

"So what do we do now?"
"Probably stick together. For survival."

Good movie. Watch it!
