I've actually watched part of Planet Earth before, too. It's very amazing. I want to see World War 2 in Color and The Civil War.

I LOVE the Planet Earth movie. I might watch it on Netflix. In fact, I will. I will look forward to talking to you more about it!

I think that 9 MONTHS THAT MADE YOU is kind of important for people that are 20+ years old. Younger than that is too young.

Hey again! I remember now the movie PLANET EARTH. It was great. I remember all the animals.
