I will probably never see it, or do what I did with The Order and Monster's Ball and Heath, rent the DVD and fast forward through the whole thing, stopping only for Jake, but not if it's creepy or yucky. 

I won't see it if it's creepy or yucky, either. I generally don't like movies about serial killers, even if they star Jake Gyllenhaal and Mark Ruffalo. I like Robert Downey Jr., too, and am even pleasantly disposed toward Anthony Edwards! But I don't like entertainment that plays murder and violence for thrills.

I'd like to see it in the theater, but it seems like most of my plans to see movies never come to pass.

   Aww Jeff, you should make the time to do things like that if you really
like it.  If it doesnt make a difference then...no worries.  I have however
always loved movies, all my life, and try to see the very special ones...
   Some are not good enough to pay the cash to see in the theaters.  But some of them just arent good on the small screen...I think all the efforts that
the director has put into making this movie look authentic.  Will be better seen on a big screen.

I remember the Zodiac murders. I was only a kid when it happened. It was all over the evening news, and in the newspapers. I remember it because this was the first time I heard the word Zodiac. I remember asking my Mother what "Zodiac" meant.

Even as a kid it scared me though. I kept wondering if something like that could happen here in Indiana.

Scary.

Oh I bet it must've been really scary to hear about something like this! Kids have no way of rationalising things like this and think this is not gonna happen to me or my parents...

I remember when I was a kid the anti-nuclear weapon movement was huge in Holland (early 80's) and there were posters everywhere like this:



I remember I was so scared when I saw this, this was meant to create awareness among people in Holland, but I think it created more fear among children than awareness among adults...

Now THAT really would be scary! Especially something about nuclear weapons. Yipes!

It would  scare the beejezus out of me even as an adult. I can't imagine what a child would think! This makes me think about the Cuban Misslle Crisis during the early 1960's. Obviously I don't remember it. I was just a baby. But it sure did scare my parents; and everyone too.

Those were scary times.  :o
