It's a story of the triumph of the human spirit. It will just take more than one movie to tell it, just like real life. It is a good story.

It was a neat old western and in black-and-white, which further added to its charm. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

One of my favorite movies too, Katie!

Have you seen "The Quiet Man" lately. It was John Wayne's favorite of any movie he ever did.

I love the old B&W movies. The English murder movies do a great job of using B&W to tell the story.

I'm sorry my friendthe stories of this kind of "human spirit" are not anything "like real life" and only lead to revolutions. Or to begin with to "ocupy wallstreet" movements...

On the other hand pretty much anything made in 1962 is great. Loe those old movies.

Watched Hunger Games last night. I actually liked it more than I thought I would. Probably not enough to read the books, though.

I have read all the books, not especially interested in watching the movies.

Last night was "Forks Over Knives," a 2011 documentary lining up the case for no more meat, no more dairy. Lots of reasons to eat just plants.
