    Boring doesn't matter to me, it's the story behind it that I'm interested in. My husband is a paramedic, he understands a lot of what happens and is interested in the movie itself.

    Re: Finding this video

    Now that "United 93" is out on CD, the movie "The Guys" is being marketed with it as a two disc set. You might try that.

    I've faced the process of getting words on paper. The fear of saying it "wrong" sometimes keeps us from putting the ideas on paper at all. The concept here is that telling a human story is simply being honest and staying focused on the moment, rather than the big picture. The astonishing truth is that this simplicity often succeeds in telling that bigger story better than a more pretentious epic would.

    Don't confuse a lack of explosions and blood-letting with boring. Real strength is fascinating for those who look, and real strength as opposed to "Hollywood strength" lies in quiet moments, too.
