And this is coming from a gun owner - thank god in Canada we don't have shootings like this. It's scary - like when columbine happened it was y'know some kids who got bullied came back and did something insane - there was a motive there, albeit a ridiculous one. In this case you had a 20 year old go shoot up a school full of elementary kids... like I cannot fathom why this would happen.
Tonnes of reasons why this kind of thing happens. Systematic issues with how we handle and diagnose our mental state of well-being contribute substantially.
With that said, we can be thankful shootings like this are pretty rare.
My thoughts are with the victims and their families, of course.
Seeing it tomorrow and I'm so excited. Hoping to relive my childhood.
Don't expect it to be as good as LOTR, because it isn't and you will be disappointed if you do. My biggest gripe is that the intro is too long (I think it was longer then Fellowship) however the movie gets better and better as it goes on (hopefully that translates into parts 2 and 3)
Also, the visuals don't have as many moments as LOTR, as the scenery is way less diverse and interesting (so far) but when those moments do happen they are just as amazing
