I shouldn't be surprised

I was reading the Washington Times today. Found an interesting article. Chaplains in the army aren't supposed to pray to Jesus. God is ok, Christ? Lord forbid. You aren't to pray to Christ or mention the Trinity or Holy Spirit. Lame. They also aren't to mention Allah or pray in what the heck is the prayer for? Moral support? A nice feel good time together? What does the government think we pray for? As they say there are no atheists in foxholes. The government can't control how we pray in our hearts. Still just another example of control.

And speaking of control I just saw The Island with Ewan McGregor and some chick. Starts off great! Any person with even a limited amount of sci-fi chops figures out what they are in 5 minutes, but still its nice. Action scenes? Good. Especially when that car gets split in two by a piece of steel. Cable guns? Stupid. Double Ewan MacGregors? A cool cliche. The final 10 minutes? Stinks. Totally lame. Way too Hollywood. But what was I thinking, it's Micheal Bay.

3 out of 5 stars for stinking the neding up Bay. After seeing Brazil. Gilliams masterpiece, I just can't tolerate movies with super rot your teeth sweet happy endings. But because the theme is a resounding Philip K. Dickish one I say go ahead and rent it.
