Revenge of the Clones: Buhari Edition!

If you had yourself cloned, who exactly, would be your parents? Can you raise yourself? I guess so. And it might be fun. Just think, by the age of six you’d be driving yourself to school.”George Carlin

There is something magnificent when George Lucas and Lucasfilm are making their Nollywood edition. That is happening after Disney brought Lucasfilm shows how they want to hit new markets. Now they have made another version of their movies, I just wonder who will be the Darth Vader, who will be Han Solo and who will be the voice of 3CPO.

However, this is the tweet, Buhari saying he is not cloned:

One of the questions that came up today in my meeting with Nigerians in Poland was on the issue of whether I‘ve been cloned or not. The ignorant rumours are not surprising — when I was away on medical vacation last year a lot of people hoped I was dead” – President Muhammadu Buhari (02.12.2018).

So, there been rumors that Muhammadu was Jubril and that he was really from Sudan. That he was the Sudanese Prince or whatever who covered from the death of Buhari. That he came to planet earth to be the clone and takeover the role of the President. However, that is all rumors.

It wasn’t a long time ago, when the Nigerian Social Media wanted it to be Coup d’etat in Cameroon too. So the Social Media in Naija is off the chain. They are now on some Science Fiction, some Face-Off, Star-Wars and Star-Trek kind of stories.

That is why the President has to embarrass himself and say he is not a clone, that he is not Jubril of Sudan. All of this is really impressive, that this wasn’t a 419. It should have been, but this is instead a Naija Science Fiction. This should be made movie by the Teco Benson or Dickson Iroegbu, who could make this into a fantastic movie. It would even hit the Oscars and possibly become nominated for the best Foreign Film.

Because, who wouldn’t enjoy and have a fun experience, seeing someone playing both Muhammadu Buhari or Jubril of Sudan acting as the Nigerian President. That would have been a kick-ass story.

Clearly, the best one would be being Jubril in Parliament enacting a law and looking into the frame saying: “I dey fine” and grinning. While the audience know he is the clone of Buhari. Peace.

Campaign Poster Fun: “If Aliens Attack, I am ready!”

Campaign Poster Doreen Nyanjura

Favourite political slogan is from LCV Woman Councillor at Makerere University, Doreen Nyanjura aka “The Iron Lady” that says: “If Aliens attack, I am ready!”. I’m used to special policy or political lingo, but science fiction is new! Hope you win by the way and use that iron to beat the crap out of the aliens, that are coming your way. Hope you learned som tricks either from the recent Star Wars movie or Will Smith in the Independence Day. I am sure the Presidential Speech, that’s in Independence Day can inspire you to gain voters.

Let me take a outake of that speech from Independence Day:

“Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind; that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the 4th of July and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist. And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: ‘We will not go quietly into the night!’ ‘We will not vanish without a fight!’ ‘We’re going to live on!’ ‘We’re going to survive!’ Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”. 

I think that is enough. Peace. 

MPS – In Time

En film som imponerte meg over alle for inntatte forventinger. Filmen er produsert av Andrew Niccol(The Truman Show, Lord of War & The Terminal).

In Time er en Science-Fiction-Romantisk-Action film.

Sier ikke det ufattelig mye? Spesielt med tanke på at alt det der skal være innholdet i 109 minutter på lerretet.

Dette er en film hvor Justin Timberlake(The Social Network) som Will Salas, får mer av tid enn det han egentlig skulle fortjene. I en tid der alle slutte å eldes etter 25 år. Hvor etter dette all verdi går på tid. Myntenheten er tid. Når han får tid av en rik mann fra en annen sone. Så blir systemet ødelagt og Tidspassere kommer etter han. Det er i sin flukt han møter Sylvia Weis (Amanda Seyfried(Red Riding Hood og Mamma Mia)). De kommer inn i forviklinger. I denne møter du en nær venn Borel(Johnny Galecki(Big Bang Theory)) som spiller en ærlig rolle.

Vil ikke fortelle så mye mer får å fortelle alt. Dette er en slags «moderne» Robin Hood film. For å være korrekt så ville «Bonnie & Clyde» være helt perfekt. Bare med tid som viktigste ingrediens og ikke penger.

Mye skjer og klisjeene og frampekene kommer. Likevel blir du ikke skuffet. Framtidsstilen er stilig. Tallene på armen(Se på film-posteren) virker troverdig på armen og systemet virker sabla kult. Det er kult å se en ny vri på både helte rollen(Will Salas) og anti-helt rollen (Sylvia Weis). Sikkert fordi Sylvia Weis er en sidekick som viser nye sider. Samtidig som hennes posisjon forandrer seg, å hun føler seg mer som menneske, enn en person lever uten virkelig å leve i en enorm rikdom. Med evig tid og ingenting å bruke det på!

Som sagt i begynnelsen denne filmen er god. Ikke at jeg tror dette er en noe Oscar eller Academy Awards, men den er underholdene og har alle kjekke elementer. Drømmer og samfunnskritikk. Slik som hva skal vi med all rikdom, hvis vi ikke vet hva vi kan gjøre med den eller er redd for å miste den med å gjøre en feil. Da er den ikke en verdi, men enorm byrde som ingen trenger eller kan holde.

Annen ting er viktigheten av å ta vare hverandre og ikke bli bundet til klassesamfunn hvor ingen kan kommer over visst nivå. Der du er plassert eller født inn og ikke har mulighet til å klare deg selv eller klatre opp. Selv om det ikke er selvsagt i dagens samfunn og ikke et helt sunt ideale. Fordi grådighet leder til det filmen kritisere.

Uansett, har du muligheten å stikke innom å få sett denne filmen, så anbefaler jeg dette. Det er god underholdning med som sagt: Science-Fiction-romantisk-action film!

Snurr film og Peace.
