If you are a cat person, you might want to grab a tissue before watching this.
This is one of those moments where I am reminded of why technological advancement is so important to us. Not iPhones or cool new video cards or the next octo-core processor, but rather the meaningful things that make a serious difference in real lives, whether it is human or feline. It will be interesting to see if they can apply this to humans.
Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice
CONTEMPT TOWARD OFFICIALS: Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.
This seems very clear to me, General McChrystal should be relieved of his command and under go a court martial.
Saw the A-Team yesterday, I would have posted this last night, but my Internet connection was down. Apparently my ISP, CenturyLink really screwed the pooch, because their infrastructure for the entire state of Texas was down until 4 AM this morning. Fortunately I was prepared and had previously installed ScribeFire for off line blogging.
So back to the movie. I was really expecting to be disappointed, I usually am disappointed by remakes, especially remakes of shows I genuinely loved. The A-Team was a good lot of fun, explosions, off the wall action scenes and plenty of nods to the original show. They made good casting choices, didn’t over reach the script and kept the characters as close to home as they could while allowing each actor to do their own take. There was very little character development, B.A. and Face got the most, but this is an origin story and the point of an origin story is to establish characters that can be built upon and developed in later movies. If you are looking for a serious and topical movie or you plan to nit pick the unrealistic action scenes, don’t go see the A-Team, but if you want 2 hours pure escapist fun, this is definitely for you.
