Untraceable




I don’t like going to cinema to see movies which are certificate 18 or R in the American system. I just found the violence (or the other reason for being R) too disgusting. Some of these movies, I can enjoy seeing them at home only when I’m holding the remote control and I have the freedom to fast forward whenever I feel like it.



Last night, my friend told me that he’s going to the cinema with his wife and asked me if my wife and I want to join them. He said that his wife hasn’t been to cinema for a long time so there was no chance to change the plan. I said let me check with the government first and then I can decide. Anyway the movie he suggested was Untraceable and it was certificate 18. I asked my wife, and she said it’s OK which means we should go with them!

The movie is about an Internet Killer who set a website for people to watch his victims suffering to death. And he informed all of his visitors that every one of them is contributing to the actual killing of the victim. They contribute because the weapon he’s using is only activated by the number of visits to the website. It was a Good thriller with some great twists, but it’s not my cup of tea at all.

In the end, we all thought the idea of this movie was good but seeing the torturing scenes was horrible. I felt sorry for the poor girl who hadn’t been to the cinema for a while and then she ended up seeing something could keep her awake all night. Wouldn’t a romance comedy be a better choice?

Anyway, this is only a movie, but how often we face similar situations in the real life when the individual thinks his action is trivial when compared to the million of people who’re acting exactly the same. Never underestimate your action no matter how little it is. You might think you won’t make any difference by not joining the crowd, but at least you won’t be morally responsible for the consequences.

First
Am so glad that I wrote the first comment

Regard last night

Don’t call me the government
Simply because I see you as the government

Then you need to look at the other side
We had the chance to go out together

حبيبي يا بو صلوح

من الخطأ إطلاق إسم " الحكومة" على الزوجة، تدري ليش؟؟؟

يقول الله سبحانه و تعالى
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
و خلق لكم من أنفسكم أزواجا لتسكنوا إليها و جعل بينكم مودة و رحمة

و عليك الباجي

و على طاري الفلم
أدري يا أخوي شي يبط الكبد
و كلامك صح بالنسبة للجزء الأخير

I think that they are going too far an losing thier track with all the movies they are making in Hollywood about all kinds of violence and killing. You know what... I am afraid that all of us have in a way or another been accustomed to the videos of killing. I personally don't, no matter what I've said above, see it strange that some people would like to see someone tortured and killed in the website.

But, God, I'm miss optimistic today, and so I'm saying, it's just a movie...
