What did you think of the Winter Olympics 2010 Opening Ceremony?

It was located in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. There were famous artists performing such as Nelly Furtado, Brian Adams, Sarah McLachlan, Nikki Yanofsky and K.D. Lang. There were also torch bearers that were famous athletes - Nancy Greene, Steve Nash and "the Great One" - Wayne Gretzky.

I didn't like it that much. Like qwertyuiopz says, the torch lighting was kind of a failure.

It had some very beautiful scenes in it. The part with the whales (complete with water spouting) was perhaps the most interesting.

Some parts were cool but some parts were lame. I gave it an 'okay', which is sad because my taxes helped pay for this ridiculously expensive event, lol.

I didn't like the rendition of 'O Canada', I thought some of the skits were too abstract / boring, and I wish that Betty Fox (Terry Fox's mom) would have been the one to light the cauldron. I also thought the totem poles at the beginning looked way too phallic.

However, Sarah McLachlan rocked my world. I also enjoyed the orcas and the representation of Emily Carr's painting.

It was a blast. I honestly preferred it to the Beijing opening. Idk, it was just... better, for me. Probably because I prefer the Winter Olympics to the Summer ones. I think we can safely assume Mattie was on some sort of crack when he thought half of that stuff up, though.
