    Yes it is!

    The picture itself is shot against beautiful scenery and the costumes of the English and the French troops and their commanders are as impressive as anything.

    One of the things I thought about while watching the film this time is how our nation was established. The deaths of the Cameron family (found dead by Hawkeye and company a little ways into the movie, killed by a Huron war party) were brought up a few times in the picture. Perhaps the French encouraged the natives to kill the whites? Not sure. But they said the Camerons had come over as indentured servants who worked off their debt in Virginia before moving to New York's western frontier.

    This nation was founded by some of those who exploited the poor and brought them here under one condition of slavery or another. True the poor whites went free after they paid their debts, but then they were living out in the boonies, defenseless against hostile natives.

    Then the wealthy enlisted the poor again (or their children) to fight for independence so that these wealthy could pay lower taxes (to King George). Nevertheless, it was about money moreso than freedom. (Not that I want to still be paying taxes to England. I prefer self-government.)

    But the racism that existed then continues on, too. (Anti-native racism which translates to prejudice against Mexicans / Latinos who were always mirgratory and are now migrating back into the United States today.)

    I watched Shaun of the Dead on TV yesterday. I'm not sure how different it was from the actual version, but it was hilarious! I enjoyed it quite a lot.

    One of my all-time favorites. And it still holds up really well today.
    Harrison Ford was totally robbed for not getting a Oscar nomination/win.

    I love the seeing that familiar cop in the subway!

    Went to the theater to see The Blind Side, a pretty good movie, but not much of a "sports action" movie. I realized why: the scenes are 8th graders and high schoolers. I hadn't considered the adoptive family to be illegal boosters, but after seeing the film, I'd say they probably were.
