Just watched a documentary called Next Goal Wins.

It's about the American Samoa NT that was defeated 31-0 by Australia in 2001, the worst loss in international football history. They're ranked 194th in the world. They've only won 2 games in their history. All of their players are not professional players. The coach before Rongen, a Samoan who lives in the US and volunteered as NT coach. Before the WC Qualifiers, they reached out to US FA for help and the only applicant was Thomas Rongen. Under Rongen, they've won their first game in 17 years. The GK in that historic loss, has moved to US and retired to NT duty and came out of retirement for their WC Qualifiers. He plays against Australia every night in his Xbox.

Samoan coach: "They needed 9 goals but we only gave them 8. These are steps, steps all going to the right direction."

Jaiyah Saelua, a member of the squad since 2003 is the first fa'afafine (transgender) player to compete in a men's FIFA World Cup qualifier. Fa'afafine are a third-gender people of Samoa and the Samoan diaspora. The movie also shows how she interacts with his teammates and how she is accepted by them and even earning the respect of their new Dutch coach.

From the director why they wanted to make the movie:
“It seemed obvious that the players in a team that had never won anything, but continued to play in the face of defeat time and time again, must love the sport more than anyone,” he explained. “And that set us thinking...”

It's was an enjoyable movie for a sport so glamorized and monetized, we get to glimpse the simpler and purer side of football. A side just for the joy of playing and just for representing one's country even if it doesn't pay anything but tears.

So how was it ? Currently watching The Garden of Sinners movies. Bit confusing with the order. Some impressive art style and animation.

Well it's almost entirely non-stop action and battle scenes so be prepared for that, but rest assured because I found it very enjoyable even though I'm not a fan of movies with non-stop fighting. Near the end there's a 45-minute battle scene with literally no break in action whatsoever, but it's not boring at all.

Personally I'd rank it as third among the six LOTR/The Hobbit movies, but my friends were a bit let down and said it's one of the worst. I admit there are a few points which were lacking or were rushed and therefore weren't satisfactory. It also plays on a lot of cliches. From what I've seen most internet reviews seem to agree with me that it's a great one though.

Without spoiling anything, there's one scene that is supposed to be one of the most, if not the most, serious in the film that was played out in such an unexpected way that it bordered on the ridiculous and left an entire cinema (Cinema 16, around 600 people) dying with laughter, even though it probably wasn't intended to be funny. You'll probably realize which scene I'm talking about when you see it.

Agree! I really prefer this new Doctor. None of the pretty boy "sweetie" drama that is Eleventh.

Character-wise I prefer Tennant and Smith (maybe because we've had so much more of them) but this season had brilliant episodes + Clara which help rank it among the best.

I'm a big fan of theirs but it doesn't come to close to 'This is the End', which I consider to be their masterpiece.

7/10 if you ask me.

This week I have seen The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (the 2nd one), it was alright actually but not a movie I'd watch again.

The Maze Runner - It was exciting, a bit like Hunger Games and the ending really got me longing for the 2nd movie.

Hobbit 3 - Meehhh... To many things put together in one movie, should have done like Harry Potter did on their last movies, two parts instead of just one.

Vikings series - AWESOME!
