The Cove

14 Dec

Everyone should go out and see this movie as soon as you can! This is one of the most exciting, eye opening, important and make you want to get off your ass and become an activist movies i have seen in a while! It just came out on DVD Dec. 8th. You can pick it up from netflix, blockbuster, the library or your favorite local video store. But if you buy it all proceeds from the sale of the DVD are going to support the campaign to stop the Japanese Dolphin Slaughter. This dolphin slaughter is such an appalling thing that has gone unseen for so long and it looks like this movie is one of the few films that is making a huge difference. So see it, get involved, buy it and show everyone you can!  Thanks!
