Catching up with phased out flims e.g. Barbel & Blood Diamond

I have been catching up with lotsa of films that is no longer shown in the theatre recently. These films are those that I would love to watch in Singapore, but for some reason or an other, didn't managed to catch it. After all, watching a show these days doesn't come cheap as it used to be. I can still remember when I was like 8-9 years old, the only time when I'm able to see a show is during the Lunar New Year. My mum would bring me to the cinema in Clementi where they tickets were like $5-6. That was really a long way back. Now, it's a hefty $9-10! Wow.. unless I'm a working adult, how the hell am I going to afford it, especially when there are so many good shows around!!? haha.. Yup, as much as I like to go to the movies, I simply can't afford going for each and everyone! So, just gotta give up some of them..

Luckily, I managed to catch some phased out shows online such as Barbel and Blood Diamond over the weekend here in Sydney. I'm absoluted puzzled as to what the characters in Barbel are talking about since there's no subtitle at all! Just have to use my imagination I guess.

Anyway, Blood Diamond is really a great movie. Both very entertaining and educational. What is the show about?? Simply put, it's about a father's love for his family and son; about the predicaments of children as child soldiers; about the so called rebels who thinks that the end justify the means; the mining of diamonds in exchange for weapons; about the fact that such sales of conflict diamonds are indirectly encouraged by the females of our species! So for those who have yet to catch the show, I would strongly encourage it. To those who happens to read this, and are loyal fans to the world of diamonds, take heed - the next time you buy a diamond, ensure that the diamonds comes from the list of countries under the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme!; otherwise it wouldn't look good with all that blood on your ring finger!
