The spread of AIDs is preventable though. Anyway, I work as a cleaner for Sodexo and its medics on this camp so today they all had a briefing about Sierra Leone and they are off on Friday to help contain the disease. Just hope noone brings it back.

What blew my mind? When Friday comes.... There will be more British soldiers fighting Ebola than there currently are fighting the Taliban and Islamic State.

To the Inglorious Basterds with the pair of you, oh and Django Unchained, he was in that too.

Inglorious Basterds? I lasted less than half an hour before turning that off. Not seen the other either.

You should watch IB, it's probably the least Tarantino-ey film of his, which is good for me because his other films are shite. Also give Django a miss.

I liked Django up until about the last half an hour which was utterly pointless. Tarantino would be the best film-maker of all time if he'd edit out all the unnecessary crap in his films and tone down the bloody violence.

I really didn't like it. I thought the movie had awful pacing, like how they only showed 1 bounty with Django before deciding to go for the big climactic bounty. The whole agreement they had goes sour for no reason other than to have Django captured again, and Django's whole backstory was barely even shown. Really just a big mess of a movie, spending too long on tedious dialogue scenes and too little on any actual narrative.
