DO NOT READ any further if you plan to see this movie, major spoiler alert.
I am so upset. I saw I Am Legend last night. I have spent a lifetime avoiding a repeat of the horror of Old Yeller, which I had seen and was destroyed by as a child. I’d done pretty well. I’m probably more than halfway through my life and it’s Old Yeller all over again. I do not appreciate being made to love an animal and then having it killed. Fuck you filmmakers, and I know people disagree with me, but there it is. For me this is the worst possible movie or TV experience. I can’t handle it. And it’s only make-believe, I know. What can I say? I was absolutely devastated last night.
Otherwise the movie was pretty great. Great zombies. If only they hadn’t killed the dog. So unnecessary, in my opinion. And sadistic.
I have to un-do as soon as possible. What should I see? I planned to see Michael Clayton next, but now I need to see something nice.
