What gall to imagine they are the Catholic Church. What spleen to imagine they represent the bishopric at all. What bile to call on the faithful to defend their faith.

Not least by trashing the memory of all the priests and nuns, the bishops and lay workers, who marched with the poor, fists raised in solidarity and voices sounded like trumpets at the walls of tyranny, reminding the faithful they had a faith, and their faith made them strong, and their faith made them free.

Congrats Azkals!

The Philippines is through to the second round of World Cup qualifiers after the Azkals leveled Sri Lanka in a 5 -1 (aggregate) win on Sunday. Huzzah!

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Quick thoughts on the movie:

  • Sam and Carly have zero chemistry
  • Why is Megatron wearing a cape?
  • Sam’s mom is made of win
  • For a G rated movie, I can’t believe the level of violence here.
  • The last hour made me think of ‘Falling Skies: The Prequel
  • Which on further thought would have been more awesome
  • What Michael Bay movie would be complete without a slow mo “emotive” camera pan sequence.

Dark of the Moon is probably the best of the Transformers films, action-wise, but still suffers from a lack of a coherent plot.
