Absolutely integral to the stories...but not something I need to watch on a screen.

how do you portray deeply disturbing rape events in a film without graphics? now that you have this deeply disturbing concept in your mind, how would you realistically convey it in a movie? it cannot be done tastefully and effectively at the same time, imo....

I agree and it's my choice to NOT watch violence like that. My life has enough trauma in it without watching fictional trauma. I adore the books, but will not watch the movies.

I have not gone to a movie in a movie theater for over 20 years. I could not stop reading the books when I read them, so this was one movie I wanted to see on the big screen. There is a lot of violence across the three books--I think the 2nd one in the trilogy has the most violence, but none of the others have sexual violence, if I recall.

If there is a book I want to read, I will not see the movie. It never does the story the justice that the book does.

Watched, "The King's Speech" last night, it was absolutely excellent.

I am a history buff and knew about the speech impediment. He worked so hard to overcome it. You have to admire someone like that. I love Colin firth.

I am so horrible with dates, I was a bit lost until he called his daughters by name, Elizabeth and Margaret, then I knew who everyone was and understood the surrounding history.

I have to do, for me, complex math to figure out what year I married Shrek.

I went and saw "War Horse" today and enjoyed it a lot. I had a purse full of tissues ready but I didn't need them. Because of the beautiful cinematography, it really should be seen in a theater.
