The Amazon is burning!

The sky is dark and so are our prospects to keep our dear planet livable for our children... and we won't say we weren't warned.

Sorry for the alarmist tone but let that tragedy be a reminder of how vulnerable and fragile our environment is and how vital to the healthiness of our planet forests in general and the Amazon in particular, are. So let's put a little green again over the red...

Which of these movies mostly set in a forest is your favorite?*

FYC:
Gorillas in the Mist: The Story of Dian Fossey (1988)

The title is missing an 's'. And you have the wrong Return of the Jedi.

'Good suggestion and good film, Jess. It kind of fits the theme or mood, as well.

It's not the quite the best film of the bunch but my favorite is 'The Mission.'

'Good idea and good intro, ElMo. That fire, and the willful ignorance of some surrounding it, is so disturbing,

On a second thought, I will leave up the sci-fi/fantasy movies and that include animated classics such as Mononoke and Jungle Book, I hate to do that but fantasy and sci-fi will bring up so many popular and iconic suggestions (Avatar, LOTR etc.) that the films sets in good old Earth won't stand a chance, which would undermine the environmentalist purpose of the poll.

The Jungle Book is set on Earth. Where else? And it even has a plot about making fire.

I was more thinking of the "fantasy" element, human talking with animals... but I might add it after all.

The Forest (2016) was snubbed by the Razzies.

It wasn't great, but it wasn't that bad either. I don't think it had enough star power or was commercially successful enough to draw their attention.

Live Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/AKruAI8DTlI/?ref_=po_fp Bravo! Party smiley 38

(I searched and searched for an emoticon that would suit, on one hand, a live poll, and, on the other, the somber occasion. The one I chose is a bit too kinetic but I figure it could symbolize the interconnectedness of the ecosystem of which we and the rainforest are both a part.)

Sign smiley 68

I suppose this also works (for the occasion part).

When I see the the irresponsibility, if not imbecility, of some adults who're supposed to make things better for us and our ecosystem, forgive the lousy pun but I want to scream : "Rainforest, run!"

And I wish it could run.
