I am sure you meant "Faint of Heart" = people who are squeamish; someone who is sickened or disturbed by unpleasantness or challenge

Yes, I have my grammar police hat on today...here to make your life...interesting.

Have ya seen it? I stand by what I said.

Nope, have not seen it...it has brief nudity...my luck it'll be Zach G...that can't be unseen. But, I will likely take a fews peeks at it while Shrek has it on. I will keep your opinion in mind.

I had a hunch it might be a series of movies the way it ended. Kind of like the Bourne movies.
I dont mind subtitles either but I was pleasantly surprised to find an english soundtrack as an option of the DVD setup menu for these movies.

My hearing is going also. :(

I'm not making fun here. Loss of hearing is a grim reality for many of us myself included.

Bummer.

I have to be in the same room and facing people to hear what they are saying. Have had since I was 8 years old. It is a joke in my family because we all sit around and yell at each other, our conversations can be heard out in the middle of the street. It's only a handicap if I allow it to be...

You might miss the subtleties if you just peek. No worries about Zach G and nudity.

You've got a great attitude about it.

I'm not there yet. I find it very frustrating to have to ask people to repeat themselves all the time.

Also, it seems that no matter how many times I tell people that I don't hear well at all they just don't get it.

I don't go to my sisters for movie night anymore because in order for me to hear the dialogue the volume has to be too loud for everyone else.

Aaargh!!!!

32 years with Shrek and I'm still telling him I can't hear him from the other room or if I'm running water. Of course, we know what Ogre's have in their ears...
