Aw, Laust . . .do you mean Kelly from 'Cast Away'? I always felt really bad for her. She was in an untenable position.
She and Tom Hanks' character were not married. Didn't they get engaged on the fly before he left? They were having some relationship problems due to their mutually insane work schedules. Then he disappears for FOUR YEARS and is presumed lost at sea. They had a funeral. She still loved him but in the circumstances, it's tough to fault her for moving on with her life. She was absolutely gutted when he returned, which made it hard for me not to be sympathetic for the hard choice she had to make. I think he rather idealized their relationship while he was on the island. The Chuck that left her was not the Chuck that returned to her. The relationship that he left behind was already showing cracks and they were newly engaged.

I think the ending shows him pursuing a new life with his other inspiration--the artist who painted the wings on the box. Kelly will wind up with more regrets than he will have, probably. I sure wouldn't want to be in her shoes.

To be on the safe side, your best bet is to assume everyone else is a dangerous robot/android/pod person/thingy: Bladerunner, The Thing (John Carpenter), The Hidden, Terminator, Battlestar Galactica (new), Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Puppet Masters, Metropolis...

I learned that Soylent Green is made out of People! That's right, People! For God's sake do not eat it, it's main ingredient is PEOPLE! GAH!

On the other hand, the main ingredient of people seems to be soylent green, or one of those other color soylents. So, it's the Great Circle of Life, right? Hakuna Makata, of whatever that was?

Well, I guess, but still...it's PEOPLE! I will admit though, those Soylent Red wafers sure do go down nice with a big steaming hot bowl of Soylent Yellow soup. Mmm mmm good!

1. When being chased by the bad guys who are in a car, run in the middle of the street.
2. Never believe that the bad guy/girl is really dead or unconscious until you have shot them 60 or 70 times, and beaten their heads to a pulp--they will rise up! And that does not include horror movies--just regular bad guys/girls.
3. If you are a pedophile, avoid Ellen Page
4. Blackmail always leads to murder
5. Keep a really neat "loader" around in case you meet ALIENS
6. Do not accept a part in any movie that has cars--if you are a fruit/vegetable stand or a trash can.
7. Never get on any aircraft if it plays a major role in the movie.

If an old man at a run down gas station offers you advice not to go somewhere. Do not go to that place.

Yeh but it has the word "Green" in it and that means it's safe.

Larry, number 7 reminds me....... :)

Don't get on a plane if a nun is also boarding with a guitar!

Of course it's perfectly safe, the Jolly Soylent Green Giant would never steer us wrong now, would he? Ho, Ho Ho!

Mistress is more like it. She asked and received $535 million from her lover and then declared bankruptcy. Apparently she doesn't know how to handle money.

Whoa, I hope that she was worth it, that's a lot of lettuce. No wonder the Giant is always so jolly.
