    Dead Poets Society, A Movie That Challenges You To Think!

    Now we all have a great need for acceptance, but you must trust that your beliefs are unique, your own, even though others may think them odd or unpopular, even though the herd may go, "that's baaaaad." Robert Frost said, "Two roads diverged in the wood and I, I took the one less...

    Into the Wild made me realize how ****** our

    modern world and society is. I plan on emulating Chris McCandles when I graduate. I don't want a career and money. I just want to be happy. Most people with a career aren't happy.

    It's funny how when I Have kids I am very much

    more tearful and emotional when it comes to films that envolve brutality towards children. I find myself tearful more and more although I'd never admit it to anyone.

    Spare Me The Hollywood ClichéS

    Things we have learned from movies... 1. Large, loft-style apartments in New York City are well within the price range of most people whether they are employed or not. 2. At least one of a pair of identical twins is born evil. 3. Should you decide to defuse a bomb, don't...

    Donnie Darko is my favourite film.

    Although completely confusing it makes you realise how utterly pointless and lonely this life is.

    For ME-such a movie was "Forrest Gump,

    " starring Tom Hanks, Sally Field, and Gary Sinese. I saw this movie on my 30'th birthday-Thursday, March 16'th, 1995. I was truly inspired by the story of the title character; and how he-despite daunting physical and mental challenges-accomplishes & achieves great things...

    (I wrote this a while ago.

    ) I saw this movie 50 First Dates and it is personal for me. Drew Barrymore's character has short-term memory but it lasts a whole day. But when the new day comes, she doesn't remember the previous day. It reminded me of my ex-roommate. She had short-term memory and it was...

    A film about life... A film about odd lives,

    intertwining within a few weeks, to create a story about life together when one or more of the brains involved are what some would call, "off". Benny and Joon, begs the watcher to come out of that brain they call home. See how simple happiness can be. You don't need a huge bank...

    I saw Gone Girl on the 4th of October.

    I have not stopped thinking about it since. I have no clue what it is about Gone Girl that's caused me to think about it so often for the past 5 months or so, but I just absolutely adore it. I don't think there's such a thing as a perfect movie, but Gone Girl came pretty close...

    I love Into the Wild

    for just this reason. I think sometimes about materialism as a sickness, an epidemic that no one seems to be able to break free from. We all sit in public places whilst staring into our phones and all I'm thinking is that I'm looking up into a void of humanity, I only see robots...

    Lost in Translation with Bill Murray

    and Scarlet Johansson is a film that i watched a million times. It's a simple story about loneliness and how two people get connected with each other because they're sharing the same issue. I think the fact I'm a lonely person made the film affect me in a way most films don't.

    One of the greatest that would fit perfectly in

    this category is Ikiru, by Akira Kurosawa. Any who see that and isn't profoundly moved ought to get really famous by being alive without a functioning heart.

    There is weakness in watching films

    that make us sit, wander beyond, imagine our lives feeling, a livelihood that lightens our hearts and senses. We are glued, seeing, believing and wondering what is to happen and become next. There is a film I was taken by earlier today, I imagined how the main character felt...
