Feedback on this doc has been really positive so far. Looking forward to it.

http://blackfishmovie.com/



A mesmerizing psychological thriller with a killer whale at its centre, Blackfish is the first film since Grizzly Man to show how nature can get revenge on man when pushed to its limits.

I am a big fan of whales and dolphins.
As the trailer points out, these animals don't belong in a "bathtub."

IMO, we humans should no longer tolerate the cruelty of placing wild animals in captivity for our amusement and money.

This look pretty incredible. Finally, a documentary that might show people that places like Sea World aren't the best places to show your children. Yeah, we're a curious species, but it doesn't mean we should be able to take babies away from their families and natural habit so we can enjoy a show.

Same here. Even though I record practically everything to DVR, there are those times when I’m channel surfing that I come across a commercial about animal rescue shelters that I have to turn away from. I’m against the death penalty, but I am for torturing people who abuse animals. Heck, I’d go as far as dropping them off, unarmed, in the Serengeti for a week just to show them that animals don’t think humans are the gods and rulers of the planet they think they are. There are those that justify, and wear it as a badge of honor, the slaughter of Native Americans as “survival of the fittest.” Lets see how proud and honored they are when they are left alone in the Serengeti where animals have lived it far longer than humans. Lets just call it a little comeuppance. smile.gif

The days of forcing animals to perform "tricks" for profit are passed.

Tell everyone you know how gruel and inhumane this really is.

You are a good man, Tom.

I can't stand any abuse of animals, domestic or wild....even to the point of dragging dead animals off the road that have been killed by cars.

Do they make them eat gruel, too? eek.gif Where will this hideous abuse stop??

I kid, I kid. I'm with you guys. I'll probably record this but don't know when I'll work up the nerve to watch it.

I saw another doc trailer for Leviathan. It looks to be a good match with Blackfish and The Cove.

^^^ I have no idea what that's about from that trailer. It sounds like a great title for a horror movie about a gigantic, terrifying sea monster, but it says it's a documentary. confused.gif

True dat. The general consensus on healthy diets involves eating a lot of "real" food - unprocessed fruits and vegetables, and to limit your intake of meat, especially factory-farmed meat. It also recommends eating a lot of fish. I'm cool with that because I like fish, but knowing which species are sustainable and which aren't is much tougher. Farmed mass-produced fish like tilapia is so low in omega-3's you might as well be eating cardboard.

I like this quote from Mark Twain...

“Of all animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it.”
