shannon moviesPosted: January 12, 2013
Once, a friend lent me a whole series of Akira Kurosawa movies like the Seven Samurai. Beautiful, sweeping in scope, subtitled and like so many of his movies, the hero often dies tragically.
We watched them ( my two daughters and I ), and movie after movie ended bitter-sweetly with the hero dying. Finally my oldest daughter declared, “I’m not watching any more of these” as she held back the tears, “These are too sad!”
Since then we call movies with a happy ending “Shannon movies”
