    Speaking of eating rats, anyone mention King Rat? That was pretty depressing too as I recall.

      hmmm, what to a American seems depressing, to a Russian may sort of seem spirit lifting...
      anyway, a movie with no happy ending shouldn't necessarily be called 'depressing'.

        So you're suggesting the end of the world, or an inability to ever return home, or a generally unpleasant ending can be 'spirit uplifting' to a Russian?

        Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
        I didn't for a long time either.

          depends on how it all is portrayed in a particular movie...

              House of Sand and Fog (2003).

              Ben Kingsley in a superb portrayal of an exiled IIAF Colonel.

              Everyone loses.

                I am suggesting Trinity and Beyond The Atomic Bomb Movie as the most depressing thing I have ever watched.

                I KNOW that too many people really do NOT know how many nuclear detonations have been set off by our race.

                It wasn't just a couple of bombs on Japan.
                Over 2,000 atomic weapons have been detonated in the world since 1945. The world and the climate actually took it pretty well. The planet could take a lot more, but the radioactive isotopes have become part of our bodies and bones because they are in the food chain. You are probably carrying some isotopes from the monstrous Tzar Bomba in you.

                  Yep that is the key detail. The planet is in no danger, after all, the planet is awash in uranium.
                  But it isn't normal for humans to have to live with the stuff (largely unaware). I've seen the maps, maps I'd guess a lot of Americans would be unhappy to look at, which show the wind and dispersal patterns of all the supposedly 'safe' underground tests in the west.

                  I don't know if the Asian and Russian tests will ever get much in the way of decent disclosure.
                  But I have seen atolls entirely obliterated by detonations in the Pacific.
