Just another happy Canuckistanian living under the so-called US security umbrella...yes, I'm a sarcastic bastard.

Arnold Schwarznegger on Climate Change - If 98 doctors tell me my son is ill and needs medication and 2 do not, I listen to the 98. The same can be said about climate change.

So I went to see Valkyrie on saturday and I was looking forward to a interesting WW2 movie - despite the Tom factor. However I was thoroughly disappointed. Seriously - different accents for all the people who were supposed to be german. Bland colourist job. And the acting made a slow plot even slower. The only saving grace was the costuming - but if they had messed up the German uniforming I would have WAY more to rant about.

Benjamin Button however was impeccable. Beautifully done.
