Blood diamond,a movie or a diamond?!

I never wanted to see this movie,i never liked the trailer,i never liked this genre of movies,but this movie was the only choice in the cinemas complex that day so we just went for it me and my friends,5 minuted after the beginning i was stunned,the movie was so amazing,coming at the end i actually had strange set of different emotions,i never get emotionally involved watching movies but this movie was actually citing facts that happen everyday in Africa,seeing all these killing and how people are murdered for no reason is really so strong,i remembered Somalia,Darfur,and a lot of similar places in Africa.The movie also shows smuggling of diamonds and how poor work hard for it for the sake of big companies and rich people and how does this industry fund rebellion and terror,It's very much a "message" movie, with many scenes showing us how children are doped and brainwashed into being the cannon fodder of Africa's civil wars; and a subplot about how the First World's thirst for diamonds and other natural resources is feeding these conflicts.And the movie is fueled by DiCaprio's intensity and believability. There's not a false syllable in his South African accent, and hardly a moment when he doesn't convey a warped upbringing and poignant love/hate relationship with his home continent. All what i can say that this is a multicarat message movie and i highly recommend it for anyone as he/she will find sure a message that touches his/her soul.

I probably won't see it but it sounds like it has a good message.
I never liked diamonds. THey are too cold. I like turquoise better.

Here's a great video of Iraqi Police Getting Jiggy With It!

And this is just funny!
