Sorry its been so long since I posted.

I'm watching Friday Night Fights tonight. This post isn't about boxing, but I am a huge fight fan. You know what bothers me about boxing? The commentators, Joe Tessetore (sp?) and Teddy Atlas openly acknowledge that a prospect fighter is facing a "tomato can". Why the hell do we have the fight in the first place then? Blah to boxing.

Anyways, the real reason for this post is because I have been doing some thinking about Orphans. Now, I was adopted legally by my Step-father. This means that I was able to take his name and join his family when my mother married him. Not quite your standard adoption as you think it, but I bring this up because I recently had to get documentation of it for something.

Well, I went to see "Drag me to Hell" tonight. Not a bad movie, but the real thing to discuss was in the previews. A movie called "Orphan" is coming out soon, and it features a spooky young girl named Esther that is adopted and subsequent spooky and murderous things occur after.

Now, here is the question. Why are you fucking with orphans like this? Like kids that need a good family and need to be adopted really need this weighing over their head? I mean, yeah, its a stupid movie but when I saw the Omen, it made me think twice about adopting. Its silly, but who knows who you are really bringing home? Chances are, its a wonderful child and films like these make you (if you think like me) reconsider it just slightly.

Is it silly? Of course, but I can't help but feel a little tinge in the back of my mind. I really think that movie producers should think a little more deeply about their subject matter sometimes. I'm sure alot of you will think I'm taking this a little too seriously, but its just a thought.
