A-Team trailer – gasp!

I have just (within the last minute) seen the trailer for the release of the A-Team. It appears that Liam Neeson will be playing the part of Hannibal.

How easy it is to forget that somewhere in Hollywood, a family may be suffering such unspeakable shortage that the breadwinner is reduced to prostituting his thespian talents in such a manner. Or maybe he was doing a favour for a friend. We’ll probably never know.

Please keep the Neeson family close to your hearts at this time.


About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.

    You cannot, ever, run down the A Team. Those dudes rock!

    I am sure if Shakespeare had had a mohawk then he might have been cool too. But alas, he was too focused on using words. Tsk Tsk Shakespeare. Tsk Tsk.

      In the spirit of tolerance and international human rights, I wll try to understand this.

      It is indeed possible that I am unable to comprehend the underlying imagery, or references to pertinent issues of angst besetting the viewership at large. I am certainly unable to grasp any additional dimensions of the plot.

      Historically, I remembered each episode to begin with a distressed chick/family/pensioner, unable to resist the intimidations of some unscrupulous louse (or gang of lice). Enter the A-Team – heroes in VERY plain clothes, if you will – each sporting endearing psychological shortfalls. In short (but entertaining) order, the “scumbag fools” are dispatched with cornea searing pyrotechnics and stunts; and the aforementioned damsel sinks into Face’s arms acquiescing to his irrisistable charms. [Alert readers will notice the subtle rhyming there. Just thought I’d mention it.]

      I concede that Will Shake failed miserably to create drama of such magnitude, but remember it was early days in the theatre and not even Othello had BA’s gold reserves.

      I suspect I shall be receiving a visit from Baracus, Murdoch et al, with instructions from you to adjust my attitude – manually if necessary – towards them.
