Munich : What Happened After That?

Steven Spielberg has come out with a new controversial movie entitled Munich. It is about what happened at Munich Olympics in the year 1972. 11 Israelis athlete was taken hostage by Palestinian mob and murdered as the world was watching the Olympics. The movie, scheduled to open at theaters late January, is NOT going to show what happened throughout the ordeal. Instead, Spielberg is going to direct what happened AFTER the murder.

Though I am very sure that our country will ban this movie, if not, then I must be dead wrong. There is no way that our Censorship Board will let it show. I am sure that they will use violence for the excuse, just like Schindler's List but we all know deep down that they will never let a movie about Jews be shown back here. Heck, we can't even visit Israel.

Another movie that will be banned would be Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain. It is because to the old folks, the movie sounds like BrokeAnus Hymen.

More than 30 years ago, it happened. Now in the year 2006, Israel and Palestine are still fighting over the stupid holy land Jerusalem. A Yemen counterpart once told me about a prophecy. He said that the day Israel and Palestine stop fighting, that is the sign of the end of the world.

Personally, I would rather let it be end of the world. I am sick and tired of listening to wars relating to both of this country. And by all means, most wars directly or indirectly are related to them.

Please let the rain of fire and sea of acid burn us all up!

I remember driving all the way to S'pore, about 10 of us, to watch Schindler's List. At the end of it, much tears was shed, male patrons included, I believe mostly due to the atrocious acts of torturing and preparing the Jews for the gas chambers and the ultimate massacre scenes.

Did the movie make me pro-Jews? No. I hate religious fanatics/extremists ever since.

Lord V :
This is where the LPF does not get it.

Films like this, teaches us tolerancy. Like how Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses teaches us about the bad side of violence, by showing violence.

I heard that Munich will be shown. But in the case of Brokeback Mountain the distributor decided not to bring it in - hence the battle wasn't even fought. It's a wonderful film (saw it in London) and I hope that it wins loads of oscars so the pressure mounts here to show it. (There are a couple of very short sex scenes - one gay one not - and THAT kiss - but these could be snipped by the censors without losing the story. Although of course I'd rather see it again unsnipped!)

Nice blog by the way!
