The dead can't testify and watched Bucket List

Australians find it hard to understand the gun rules in the USA but I don’t want to argue about that. However, a friend was talking to an American real estate agent who said she would never enter a building without her concealed weapon. She was then asked if she would shoot to wound or to kill. Her answer was she would shoot to kill. When asked why, her answer was that ‘the dead can’t testify’. I’ve always wondered why our police never shoot a person in the legs or whatever if, say, the criminal isn’t armed but now I know why. But what an awful attitude to take. We watched Bucket List last night with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson and thoroughly enjoyed it. No gunfights, no violence, no swearing, not that I remember anyway, and no gratuitous sex, as Vince would add. But great entertainment just the same. Another photo from our last Irish trip.

I hate it when I'm crying and suddenly they turn the lights on.

To make it interesting to watch despite none of what you have mentioned being there is quite a feat for the producer. I wonder if youngsters would like to watch it though

It might be a bit too tame for youngsters.

I think you'd enjoy the movie. There were nice life lessons in it.

If you shoot a person here, even if it was a thief you found in your house, you go to jail. I think that it's too easy to kill with no consequences in America.

@JudyEv - During those nine years they are called every year during 2 weeks to keep updated.

We used to watch Midsome Murders and would laugh as there was always at least three murders each show and sometimes four.

This seems to be a very nice move. I have never watched it before. However based on your reviews here I would check it out for a trial.

I would disagree with that generalized statement that police shoot suspects because they do not want them to testify against them. Police are human beings and have a job to do and want to be able to see their loved ones at the end of each day. Trying to aim at someone's legs who may be trying to kill you I think would be pretty hard to do in an instant. And suppose the shot did not incapacitate that armed suspect during a you or him moment. No, police are trained to use deadly force when threatened themselves. It's to make sure they come out of the situation alive and not a victim. As far as Hollywood movies it is definitely hard to find one without violence in some form, that's for sure. I wonder if it is to appeal to a younger audience who may spend more on going to see movies than older adult audiences. One thing is for sure, box office income has a lot to do with the kinds of movies made today. And perhaps, non-violent movies on the whole don't gross as much?

Not sure if I've seen Bucket List. I like Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson.
