    I could not even do Bambi. My kids never saw a movie where an animal was in danger.

    War Horse was really hard in parts (barbed wire a horror!) but the ending was so happy. Same with Slumdog Millionaire, Life of Pi and so many really wonderful movies. But I cover my eyes during the hard parts and I can trust my DH to let me know when it is OK to look again. Odd that I can watch serial killer movies, but can't deal with animals in peril.

    Last week we Redbox rented Parkland, really good movie about the day JKF was assassinated as it was experienced by the Parkland Hospital staff, Secret Service, Police, Zapruder and Oswald's family. (Never knew he had a brother and totally whacked out mother.) Still evoked so many strong memories and tears, but we enjoyed it.

    Today we rented The Heat from Redbox. It was hilarious, with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. I really love McCarthy's movies. I've never seen her Mike & Molly because I don't watch any sitcoms, but I can't imagine her being as funny as in her movies because of her outrageous irreverence and the language not allowed on Networks.

    I got notice that The Heat is at Redbox, I am glad you liked it. We still haven't seen Gravity, and now this is in.

    We finally watched it. OMG we laughed all through it as well. I hope they do The heat 2!

    When Bullocks character was talking with Tatiana I loved it when McCarthy's character said move over Rosetta Stone!!

    Yesterday I streamed Death by China from Netflix. Wow! Blew my mind. We should be very, very afraid of China. This is no People's Republic of China. It is Communist China, and in the worst way. If you like shopping at Walmart (I've never even been inside one), you might be purchasing goods produced by slave labor in a prison or by very young people forced to work 16hr. days, 7 days a week for a pittance. 90% of the tilapia sold here is from China. Only 1% of tilapia imports are inspected, and of the 1% - 65% of that is rejected because of contaminants. The rest is sold without inspection.

    China is focused on taking us down as a leading international power and our congress and consumerism is making it possible. China is in the process of the largest military buildup of a totalitarian government since the 1930's and they are getting all this technology from the international corporations who do not have the interests of the American people on their agenda.

    I will read the label on everything I buy from now on to be sure I'm not buying from China. Of course I won't be able to buy a microwave, television, cell phone, etc., etc., etc...... I highly recommend this documentary to everyone. It will make you think of China as a very dangerous adversary.

    Iron Man 3 - I'm not the biggest super hero movie fan and I know nothing about the comics. I enjoyed it as a fun action movie. It kept me interested and the special effects were great!

    Not odd at all. I would venture to say every human being reacts the exact same way. Human nature. Odd if someone would not respond this way. Hard to admit that we are part of the whole and not special in our beliefs, I know. It is not unique to feel more for animals than humans. They are innocent and do not have the understanding we do. Or do they? They are probalby more in touch. Still hurts even though I know that.

    The latest news is that China is easing up on the one child per couple law and will allow those who were only children to have two children - three if you live in the country. It is also reported that the 'slave' camps will be abolished. They have been communist since the civil war. They will always be totalitarian, but have shown an easing with the re-absorption of Hong Kong.

    However, as you pointed out, it is always good to be skeptical and on guard against those with repressive histories.

    I just finished The Croods - very sugary with a forced lesson of faith and love.

    We saw The Purge. I know reviews weren't great, but I really liked it. It makes you wonder at what price is peace and prosperity really worth it?
