Have you watched the movie about Max?

I stumbled across a good movie the other day I wanted to tell you about if you haven’t watched it already. It’s called Max. Max is a military dog serving with his handler on the front lines in Afghanistan. They send Max into areas first to sniff out weapons. Anyway, I don’t want to give away the whole plot because you should see it yourself, but something happens to Max’s handler and Max is traumatized. He can’t do his job any more and they ship him home. The only person he can really connect with is the younger brother of his handler. He ends up being taken in and cared for by his handler’s family. Like a lot of teenagers, the boy is reluctant to take on such a responsibility and the two are slow to warm up to one another.

As with all good movies, there are unexpected plot twists and excitement and danger. I have to warn you that I was sniffling a bit at the end, but tried to hide the tears from my family. Oh yeah, speaking of family, this movie is very family friendly. I have a lot of respect for the military and love seeing stories about the dogs, so I’m glad I found this movie. Look for it, you will enjoy it.

Times are getting tough for everyone and one way that I’ve been able to cut back on my spending is by renting movies at Redbox for $1 a night instead of buying the movies at Wal Mart for about $20. At least the new releases seem to run real close to $20. Sometimes you can catch good movies on sale for about $9 or $10, but that is still a lot more than the $1 from Redbox.

I just realized this year that I don’t have to own every movie that I watch. It is OK to rent a movie and take it back the next day. If I see a movie that I realy like, then I’ll buy if I can find it on sale.
