Also liked the jo staff battle sequences. I do wish we'd gone to see it on the big screen, though.
    It would have been epic on the big screen. Ron Perlman was an unexpected and pleasant surprise as I didn't know he was in it.

    Blackfish - I watched this after hearing multiple good reviews from completely unconnected people. It is a documentary about orcas being held in captivity. It covers the history of this practice and goes over the history of accidents occurring with trainers. It was a very well made documentary and I completely believed the former trainers who were involved. I found it interesting and informative. It was completely one-sided in that there was no involvement with the "other side" of this story, but the film doesn't really make any claims that it is unbiased. There is a statement that they asked Sea World to be involved and were refused.

    There was video footage of a trainer who was pulled to the bottom of a very deep tank multiple times by an orca he was working with. Apparently the guy had deep water diving experience and knew how to deal with the pressure of the deep water and how to breathe properly to recover when he was brought back to the surface. It was just amazing that guy stayed calm enough to survive the situation!!!

    Note: Technically I didn't "rent" this. After I put it on my Netflix queue I learned that it is still airing on CNN.

    Star Trek Into Darkness - Honestly, I was disappointed. Normally it doesn't take much to entertain me. I have no problem suspending belief or just enjoying something for the popcorn factor. The movie was beautiful and I continue to enjoy the new cast. However, I strongly disliked that they went there with so many things. You can have nods to the mythology of something without shoehorning it blatantly in my face. I would have preferred if they just did a brand new bad guy/new story/etc.

    I watched War Horse and The Impossible (about the 2004 tsunami) back to back...yeah, I went through a good half box of tissue. Happy endings, but so sad and brutal getting there.

    That's why I'll never see that one, Way. I'd be destroyed. Hidalgo almost did me in. I'm sure War Horse is a good movie, but I just can't see it. Stuff like that with animals is too much for me.

    I just got the Joss Whedon Much Ado About Nothing in the mail from Netflix. I'm waiting until I have two uninterrupted hours so I can really savor it.

    Last Holiday with Queen Latifa is a fun upbeat movie. Loved it!

    I will never be able to see the movie (or play). Since I was little, movies or TV shows with animals in any kind of danger and God forbid dying make me fall apart. I used to cry at the opening credits of the Lassie TV show.
