The good, the bad, and the ugly
The good – The Promise, six hours of television in four parts. A story which switches between modern day Israel and Israel at the time of the second world war when the Brits were in charge. Based on historical events, it is a tale of British incompetence, Jewish aggression and Palestinian suicide bombers. Nobody wins, although you do end up with a better understanding of the events that underpin the current mess. The Israelis have condemned it, which is sufficient recommendation.
The bad – Jackass 3D, in 2D if you download it, not that it make much difference. Two hours of grown men kicking each other in the balls and performing stupid stunts, many of which feature shit, urine or vomit, or sometimes all three, Hilarious, if you like puerile humour. Fortunately, I do.
The ugly – Inside Job – By far the best explanation of financial crash, in as much as it is the only one I have really understood. The major players are interviewed, the major culprits decline to be interviewed and are still occupying positions of responsibility. Enlightening, angering, frightening.
