Blackfish (2013)
« on: March 24, 2014, 01:07:27 pm »

Blackfish is one of the most breathtaking documentaries and definitely the scariest one I have ever seen in my life. You think you have seen it all, but you haven't seen sh*t until you have seen this film. Sure, we have all seen small snippets here and there over the years when it's reported on the news about another trainer being attacked by a Killer Whale at an amusement park. But just like the handful of former Sea World employees that make up this documentary, they, along with the majority of the public, had / have never seen a lot of the footage that takes place here with regards to said attacks.

Seeing these majestic Orcas in their natural habitat is truly something to see and savor and the film does paint a picture that even in captivity everything is all roses. That is until the filmmakers dive deeper (pun intended) and expose a lot of the whitewashing that Sea World does to curry favor from the public that spends money at their parks. To see the middle section of the doc will leave you stunned and horrified at what's captured on film. To see Trainers being mauled, crushed, slammed, arms and legs being snapped and in one case, a Trainer being dragged down to the bottom of the tank will leave you literally holding your breath. It's spine tingling scary. Bone chilling in every way imaginable. Even though I have been to Sea World as a kid (where I literally live 5 minutes from it my entire life), it has changed how I now perceive it to be. I will NEVER be able to drive past it ever again and not think of the things that I saw in Blackfish. I highly recommend this as a Rent.

I've been on the fence about seeing this. I just might now.

Definitely worth checking out Mac. I thought it was going to be along the same lines as The Cove (i.e. bloody). It's not. Well, bloody as in spearing animals. As for the Trainers, that's a different story.

Ever since Blackfish hit the theathers, PETA has gone out of its way to discredit Sea World with PSA Posters at the Airport trying to discourage tourist from spenind their money at the theme park and back in May, "someone" went a step further and scaled one of the Signs leading into Sea World and planted a 'SUCKS' sign over the word 'Drive'. Now everyone was trying to figure out who did this, but we all knew it was Steve-O because shortly after the News Crews started arriving on the scene, the camera man showed Steve-O doing his own on-air camera interview. When approached, he denied any involvement. Well, this video confirms what we already knew. Probably the worst kept secret in the history of the world.

What the f*ck!!! You would expect to be safe given the fact that we humans are outside the tank and the Orca's are inside. But watching the Killer Whale find a way outside of said tank to get into the audience actually made me GASP. This could have gone horrible wrong. This isn't a whale that was being "playful". This is a hunting technique that Killer Whales use when they beach themselves to get to Seals. The thought of those kids being devoured sends chills up and down. *Shudders* Click 1995 VHS Footage Captures Shocking Orca Incident At SeaWorld for a detailed breakdown of the incidednt.
