I was reading the newspaper today that the website Megaupload has been shut down by the U.S. government. MegaUpload is one of the world largest file-sharing site and several company executives where arrested on piracy charges. I feel that this will be just one of the first websites this is going happen to, and even more are coming unless we really protest and make sure the government does not inhabits us in our internet usage or threaten our prosperity, online security, and freedom of expression.
The SOPA & PIPA are just two of the bills racing through the American congress right now, but stay vigilant!!

I went to see the A-team with a couple of people staying in the Staffhouse at the Scotiabank theatre last Tuesday. It was Tuesday so that meant Telus Movie Combo Deal! For only $11.70 we got the ticket, popcorn and a drink!
As I went around the house to ask people if they wanted to come along, I came to the shocking conclusion that several people in the house never even heard of the A-team. I couldn’t believe what I heard because in the Netherlands they used to show it on TV all the time.
So for those of you that don’t know, the A-team is an American television series about a group of ex-United States Army Special Forces soldiers who work as Soldiers of fortune (soldiers for hire) while being on the run from the military because of a ‘crime they didn’t commit’. Despite the fact that there are running from the law they are always on the good side and help people in need. The show ran from 1983 until 1986.
The A-team has 4 members:
The leader Lieutenant-Colonel John ‘ Hannibal’ Smith, know for his excellent plans, sigars and the phrase: ‘ I Love It When A Plan Comes Together’
Lieutenant Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck, usually called Face is a smooth talking con-man who uses cons to make sure the team has the supplies they need.
Captain H.M. ‘Howling Mad’ Murdock, who is the team’s pilot and lives in a mental institution because he is insane.
Sergeant First Class Bosco Albert BA ‘Bad Attitude’ Baracus. He is the team’s strong man and mechanic and has a fear of flying. The team usually uses a trick to get him into the plane, such as drugging him, knocking him unconscious etc.
The intro of the TV show combined with the theme song are well know by everyone. If you don’t know it or would like to see it again, here it is
I thought Liam Neeson did an outstanding job portraying Hannibal in this movie, but in my book nobody can top George Peppard’s performance as Hannibal. Hannibal was my favorite character in the series and George was definitely the right man for the job. Same goes for BA, nobody can beat Mr T’s role but Quinton Jackson did a fantastic job with his character BA. And of course there was the ever loving Face, who is still persuading the ladies. In this movie the lady of his choice is Jessica Biel. And let’s not forget Murdock, in this movie it was finally reveled why BA is afraid of flying, and I wouldn’t go in to much details but I has something to do with Murdock being crazy as usual!
I was really looking forward to seeing this movie. I really wanted to know if the movie was as good as the series. After I have seen the movie, I can honestly say that I really loved the movie. It had a good combination of humor, romance and of course fighting, shooting and blowing things up. I really recommend everyone to go see this movie! It is so worth it!
