Once again, I successfully avoided the Superbowl this year. Instead I went to see Hotel Rwanda. Wow, that is a harrowing movie, but really, really good. Everyone should see it.

Then we went out to dinner, which is always fun on Superbowl Sunday. It makes me feel like a Jew on Christmas Day. Afterwards, we came home and watched an hour of Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet with the munchkin. Seriously, I could watch puppies frolicking all freaking day long. It was mesmerizing.

I too avoided all contact with the Superbowl. Go me.
On Friday I had a chance to go to the movies and I picked Finding Neverland. I almost picked Hotel Rwanda, but I was afraid it would be too sad/gruesome. How graphic was it? Is it uplifting at the end in any way?

It wasn't nearly as graphic as I was expecting, actually. Considering the subject matter, I thought they were fairly restrained in terms of the gore. It was very emotional, but it didn't leave me scarred like some films--something like Secret Window, for example, which was just about ugliness and left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Ultimately Hotel Rwanda is the story of love and bravery triumphing in the face of terrible events, so it's not completely bleak. You know, for a movie about genocide. :)

"You know, for a movie about genocide."

Exactly. I dunno if I will be able to bring myself to watch this. I have never seen Philadelphia either, and many people rave about it.
