I Am Legend SPOILER ALERT

Legend.jpg 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.

  1. Thanks for the heads-up. I think I will take it off my list. I recommend a viewing of “Love Actually”. It has some great actors, and the opening sequence of the aging rocker recording a cheesy Christmas song is worth the cost of the rental.
    Nudity and language warning – not for watching with young neices and nephews 🙂
    Wishing you a happy and peaceful Christmas Stacy.

  2. I love Love Actually!!!!! Thanks for reminding me of its existence!
    That is the perfect antidote. And thank you for your Christmas wishes — you too!
