The wolves, at least the grey wolves, are fine. A couple of other speci, like the Mexican Red Wolf, I think, are endangered, though.

Also, the Hunger Games movie wa just as bad a th book, and had obvious CGI, even if the locations were cool.

Whoa, BB didn't like Hunger Games?

Huh.

*shrug* I liked it. For new literature, it was pretty OK. I guess I liked the setting more than the story. After all, that was the selling point for Avatar.
Time is not wasted if you enjoyed what you were doing.

<Please note that this is only a partial list and I will edit it as I think of more.>
<Please also note that books made from movies are disqualified from these lists, I may see the movie and read the book, however I will not list them unless you ask about it, then I will only tell you that I have read and/or watched it.>
