Concerning Wolves

In Soviet Russia, Sharks beat YOU!!

I watched Pathfinder tonight - It was one off those movies that would have been amazing if you had watched it with your beloved.

I watched it with Siraj Bassa

It was awful!

Well, ok - maybe it wasn't that bad, I mean, it felt like Apocolypto in places, a cheap Braveheart in others, but for the most part, reminded me off old Indian movies, where Mithun Chakraborti decimates a bus load off bad guys all on his own. Karl Urban, who was cool in LOTR, Doom and Riddick, is very out of place in this movie - I mean, he's no Chuck Norris or anything. However, there was a really good line in the movie though - one of those reflective moments, I can't remember the lines ad verbatim, and the movie is too shitty for even imdb to list the quotes- so it went something like this

Karl's Love interest Pocahontas girl: Everyone has two wolves fighting in their heart, One for Love and one for Hate

Karl: Which one wins?

Karl's Love interest Pocahontas girl: The one you feed the most

Also, went for a talk by Palestinian activist and Journo, Ramzy Baroud - He rocked. I got a chance to be a 'pose whore' and got a quick piccie with him - Also had time to give him my 'Boycotting Coke does nothing for the Palestinian Cause' argument - I'm sure it made a change from the usual stuff people ask him.
Interesting Fact - It wasn't the Spanish weaponry that wiped out the Aztecs, but their diseases - smallpox and syphilis. So next time you want to wipe out an entire race, visit your local brothel first and remember...

In Soviet Russia, Prostitute pays YOU!!
