ya know, maybe running out of movies isn't such a bad thing. i can finally start reading all those books that have been collecting dust. some sexy people sent me books and i've only read the first couple of pages in each one.

Breach is good but I think there are guns in it

Have you ever seen Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants? Real Women Have Curves?

It's a sad commentary that it's tough to think of movies without guns in them

If not having movies without guns means watching Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, I think I might be all for World War III.

But all kidding aside, violence has always been a major part of motion pictures, from the outset, aside from most comedies and the like.

And it's not like alll films these days focus on violence. Most dramas and action movies do though, but that's just the nature of the drama. I mean, a film like American Beauty is one of the most breathtaking perspectives of the human condition I've ever seen, and there are guns in it. Truth be told, guns and violence are an intergral aspect of umanity in the 20th century.

I would suggest trying out the first 2 seasons of "House", but that's just me.

thats what has surprised me the most. movies which aren't even considered violent can have a gun in them nowadays. and then theres not just guns that shoot bullets...but lasers, etc. as well. some of the stuff i enjoyed as a kid i'm reluctant to watch again.

P-T-S can kiss my A-S-S.

p.s. britt, i saw you called, but i'm at work. i'm off tomorrow, so i can call in the afternoon.

Well I didn't think this was for critiquing peoples' suggestions, I was just trying to help her out. It's easy to be philosophical about violence, it's a different story altogether when you're been through what she's been through.

I think reading is a good idea, it's calming too-well it is for me.

No harm meant. That was just a joke. And I understand what you're saying, but it is what it is.

Violence and film almost goes hand in hand. The gun is possibly the most important symbol for film too. It is the quintessential method of creating a villain, and creating drama, and creating a threat, etc. It also makes it easy for people to root for a hero. Film allows us that capacity to vicariously dish out justice. We love to see the good guys shoot up the bad guys, in situations that just don't occur that frequently, if at all, in real life.

Also, the gun is inherently tied into the evolution of the art of filmmaking. The Russian war propaganda films of the first part of the 20th century were critical to the advent of modern cinema as an art.

But, I'm getting carried away. I'm just pointing out, that it's not really a "sad commentary" that guns are so prevalent in film; what's more a sad commentary is the state of the quality of film these days that is embraced by the mass public.
