I just watched Blood Diamond, huh? Rather boring in the beginning, but as it progressed, I started liking it more and more, huh? Didn’t like the kid, though, huh? Ending was very sad, and even though I’m a supporter of ‘film score should illustrate location of the images’, I wish they would stop putting wailing female solos containing African lyrics during dramatic passages, huh? I don’t like those, huh? The score is mostly uneventful too, huh, but DiCaprio succeeds better in impersonating an African accent than a British one (Great Ghatsby), huh?
