Movie Night – Grizzly Man 5.4.07 May 2, 2007

Filed under: Movie Night — antof9 @ 10:02 pm

If you missed last Saturday you still have a chance to participate in the conversation at this weeks movie night.

Everyone that came had a great time discussing Into the Wild. We talked about:
Whether we felt McCandless respected the land.
Did overconfidence play a role in his death.
Whether we are planners or risk-takers (and subsquently the balance of the two personality types).
What were his reasons in going out West.
Why he seemed to “hate” his parents so much.

So this Friday we had discussed watching Grizzly Man. I will not be able to host movie night…so if anyone wants to volunteer that would be great. Don’t worry about providing food and drink, just a tv and some chairs. I can even provide the movie. If no one posts to volunteer then I guess we will reconvene on May 12th and begin reading Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire.

    Facts for Matt:

    Barack Obama’s father is an African from Kenya, his mom is a white girl from Kansas, and he attends the Trinity United Church of Christ. Therefore, Barack Obama is not Muslim or Arab.

    Actually, I found the bio on his campaign website very interesting ( Of course, it is a campaign website…

    By the way, I want to point out I’m not posting to endorse or not endorse Obama, I’m just clarifying since the issue came up during our post movie conversation.

    Maybe the media has twisted what he said, but several internet articles referred to his Muslim heritage (his father was reported as being Muslim). So I didn’t just pull it out of thin air, but was mislead by the media…which is not a first.

    …but I’m not bitter. 😉
