Hi everybody,<br><br><br><br>
I think this movie deserves its own thread, so here it is.<br><br><br><br>
Movie description:<br><blockquote><p>Narrated by Academy Award Nominee Joaquin Phoenix and featuring music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby, EARTHLINGS is a documentary film about humankind's complete economic dependence on animals raised for pets, food, clothing, entertainment and scientific research. Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, EARTHLINGS chronicles the day-to-day practices of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative, controversial and thought-provoking, EARTHLINGS is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals and human economic interests.</p></blockquote>
<br><ul><li><b><a href="http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3251419433163515470" target="_blank">Watch it on Google Video</a></b> or <b><a href="http://mirror.roland-kaufmann.ch/Earthlings.avi" target="_blank">download a high-quality version</a></b> (requires <a href="http://www.divx.com/divx/" target="_blank">DivX</a>).<br></li>
</ul><br><br><br>
Please forward it to your friends and go vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

It's a great film that exposes the truth of human dominion and exploitation of the creatures on this planet. Everyone should see it, it could change the way humans as an entire species views this earth, and the other "earthlings" inhabiting it.

Actually it already had it's own thread... <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=52061" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ad.php?t=52061</a><br><br><br><br>
But I agree, it's at least worth watching.

I just did a complete 180 on my use of the phrase: "That's not kosher." Brutal. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
I am going to need years of therapy now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
I doubt I could get anyone to watch this without resorting to...<br><br><br><br><a href="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d122/spamelot/clockwork_big.jpg" target="_blank">http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d1...ckwork_big.jpg</a><br><br><br><br>
Cheers!<br><br>

It took me three days to watch that movie.<br><br><br><br>
It was awful. I just hope to convince a few omni's to watch it. I know if I had seen that before becoming a vegetarian, I would have converted immediately!

Yeah, I bought that movie quite a few months ago and watched it all the way through but cried through most of it. My husband watched it with me and said he would never eat meat again but he has a package of bologna and a package of hotdogs in the fridge right now. YUCK!

That article is much much too long and boring to read the whole thing, but I read the intro and conclusion and it's clear to me from the conclusion that the author doesn't know what he's talking about.... He concludes that if animals and humans are not alike then the research is useless. That's just simply not true. Period.

My mom says she's going to watch this. So I downloaded it for her. I'm curious to hear her perspective on it. Anyone else have any luck with family members watching it?

It's obvious that you didn't read the whole thing, or understand the little of what you did read.

Um yeah, I clearly said that I didn't read the whole thing. The guy's an idiot.<br><br><br><br>
And it's completely off-topic, so I don't know why it was posted here anyways.

You seemingly didn't even read the relevant parts of it. So acting as though you know what it's all about and calling the author an "idiot" is really fairly ignorant on your part.

Time to regroup?<br><br><br><br>
Here is an example of Mr. Kpickell, lashing out at me for being juxtaposed on personal life styles.

Huh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"><br><br>
You read WAY too much into everything. I can't reply to any of your posts without you taking it personally. Get over it. I was replying to Irizay anyways.
