Ever since we discovered the cheap theater close to his area, we have been watching movies 1-2 times a week. The latest one was The Kingdom. I'm not a big fan of war movies unless they have a purpose (ie. Schindler's List) as oppose to merely glorifying violence and stereotyping certain religions/nationality. In my opinion, The Kingdom just happens to be the latter. The ending was just horrible because it leaves a bitter taste, if I may say so. The violence I could take (even though I gagged at certain parts) but the effect it can have mentally on people who are easily influenced by such encouraging words was uneccessary. Ah, world peace when will you be attained. When everyone is gone? Sigh.
I wonder what has happened to the US dollar? Eek! Although it's kind of good to have the Canadian dollar worth more because that can mean shopping across the border will be even more rewarding, it will definitely have some consequences. I'm not one to dwell on the economic aspect of it but hopefully, whatever it may be won't be that horrible.
