I am disinclined to acquiesce to your request

Pirates of the Caribbean

Yesterday I had a fortune of watching the Pirates of the Caribbean:Dead Man's Chest. If you have a chance, it is stronly recommended. I love the movie, especially on its humor and Dialog. That give me a strong urge to rewatch the first of the series (Curse of the Black Perl) again. Amongst others, this dialogue verbally standouts.

. Elizabeth: "Captain Barbossa, I am here to negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal." Barbossa: "There be a lot of long words in there, Miss. We're naught but humble pirates. What is it that you want?" Elizabeth: "I want you to leave and never come back." Barbossa: "I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request." Elizabeth: "..." Barbossa: "Means 'no'."

The Dead Man's Chest does not end properly. I anticipate for the third one, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. There are many rumors on the Title of the third film, besides "At World's End", for example, "World's End" or "Uncharted Water". I personally love Uncharted Water because it gives a nostalgia feeling to the Koei's Game, Uncharted Water and Uncharted Water: New Horizons. If I have a chance, they will be played again, burning a few days (or weeks). :D

Resident Evil

I also watched Resident Evil 2: Apocalypse that I rented last few days. The movie is so and so though Milla Jovovich brand has some effect on me. I am getting bored on Jovovich doing fighting. In fact, I just watched Ultra Violet on the same renting but cannot endure to watch it to the end. I poped the first disc out mid-disc, could not bear it. Very boring, the story is not attracting. That also remind me of No Good Deed, even though Samuel E. Jackson and Jovovich appeared in the movie, I don't think that I can bear watching it again. However, Joan of Arc and Fifth Element are ones amongst my favorite films.

I went too much out of the topic I want to speak. The point is Resident Evil and I have never play Resident Evil to the end. I played it once at a party on my friend's home but could not manage to finish it. I wish to play it again now. There is 4 (or 5?) installations on PC but I don't know where to get it. Must try to find it somewhere, somehow.

Civilization IV

Today, Peam told me that the theme song of Civilization IV is called Baba Yet (or baba yetu) LMAO. Try convert it to Thai and you will get it. Well, the song contains the phrase "Baba Yet". The song is composed by Christopher Tin, a genius from Stanford, Oxford and finally Royal College of Music. Chang had tried to find the lyric and here you are. The song is written in Swahili, a language widely spoken in East Africa. That reminds me of Swaziland, a country that also came to attend our King's 60 year celebration. I don't expect this song to be available in any karaoke box but I am practicing it now. :D

PS. Swahili is not the language of Swaziland, SiSwati, but is in the same family, Bantu Language.
