World Cup round-up

July 16, 2010

No, I am not in hiding, I am just trying to enjoy a short vacation. It is now almost a week since the end of the 2010 World Cup Football, deservedly won by Spain. It is time to try and put in writing my thoughts over this competition, which has kept a good part of the world entertained for about a month, a feat that simply no other (joyful) event can accomplish — not even the Olympics, and by a long shot.

So, here are a few remarks, in no special order. Obviously they are personal, biased and non-objective observations, the only ones worth making when it comes to football. I know I am leaving stuff out, but that is what comments are for.

I saw it yesterday. What to say about it ?
It’s basically a remake of this one, except it’s in the future… story pretty much the same — you be the judge. Nice special effects, though, in spite of those uncomfortable and annoying 3D glasses (if you go for the IMAX version).
Yes, I am a very concise movie critic… happy 2010 everyone !
