The film claims that Dolphins are as intelligent as humans (I tend to agree there), that the method of slaughter is barbaric (I also agree) and that the meat is toxic (pretty much a fact).

Must be a good documentary, but again this is from only one side. I wonder if this documentary was made with an objective view on both side?

Not in the slightest, but its an incredibly well made documentary, in the pure definition of the term "documentary" (they're meant to be biased). That said, I'm for stopping the dolphin slaughter if it's poisonous.

Lastly, I have lived in Japan a long time and have never seen dolphin meat in an eatery or a butcher shop. I have seen whale though. Do they really eat dolphins? Maybe a local thing?

The film claims that dolphin meat is sometimes advertised as whale meat, due to mercury testing on certain products.

Oh, and to back up that little nugget further: One might argue that this "override of sense" proves a lack of intelligence when a whale continually beaches itself. But it does not. It's simply compulsion. We suffer from it too, and sometimes harm ourselves in the process.

I mean, how is that different than the so called "stupid" dolphins and whales that get themselves mysteriously beached on shores all over the world? Even though a lot of dogooders try to push those said dolphins and whales back to see, they still end up beaching themselves somehow.

To be fair, thats a matter of instinctual drive and the animal's natural "radar", not intelligence. Occasionally, marine mammals have a natural compulsion to head in a certain direction, and it overrides all other senses. Just wanted to point that out.

As an aside, its a shame that Pixars efforts are finally recognised in the Best catergory a few years too late. Ratatouille would have been a far stronger nominee.

As enjoyable as Avatar was, it doesn`t have any place in the Best Picture noms. Pleasant surprise to see District 9 here though!
