    The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

    I just finished watching this and can I just say what a great film this was. It had me in tears at the end and i think this was because it made me reflect on my own life. It was an amazing film with an awesome story line. If you haven't seen this yet then I don't know what you...

    Alright, I know everyone has seen this movie more than once right? Well me, I can say I've seen it more than ten times. Every time it's on HBO I switch to that movie automatically, either intensely sitting there and watching it or having it played in the background. This movie...

    Every teenager should be required to watch "The

    Breakfast Club" in their freshman year in high school. It will help them understand that even when teens belong to different groups, they all have the same issues and problems. This is one of my very favorite movies, even to this day and I graduated from high school in 1981.

    Donnie Darko is my favourite film.

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

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

    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.
