    Documentaries are especially a fulfillment of

    my nagging existentialism. I love watching and learning how the world works.

    (non-English) that make me think and feel, and I'd also love to learn about other cultures this way. Any recommendations?

    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...

    Date Night is one of my favorite movies.

    I can see how the title might be misleading and have judgmental others think it is a mega-romantic movie when it isn't that at all. The first part of the movie is extremely slow and many might say boring with caps, but if you do not watch it and pay attention to it, I will...

    A lot of sci-fi does that

    for me. The gadgets and robots etc are all fine and dandy, but many like 'AI: Artificial Intelligence' or 'Bicentennial Man' and of course the classic 'Bladerunner' all tackle issues around what it means to be human. I don't believe sci-fi is anymore than re-interpreting today...

    I recently saw a movie called 'Afterwards'.

    It really made me think about life, because it suggested answers to some timeless questions. I also saw 'Terminator Genesys' which was quite surprising, in making me think about man's responsibility to his species.

    I watched a cartoon movie in a theatre once.

    it was silly, and kind of ridiculous but I felt so alive afterwards. why? I don't know! I just felt like the victory the characters accomplished in the end was so inspirational, even if it was just a silly animation. I love movies, I love stories. I love how movies you never...

    Has anyone seen the film Incendies?

    It's amazing but at the same time heartbreaking, about siblings searching for their brother who was taken from their mother during the Middle eastern conflict & Lebanon civil war. I was emotionally drained afterwards but it's so unforgettable and special.

    I love Trainspotting!

    it makes me think about how even the worst person on earth deserves a second chance, and also it makes me think about how the worst and ****** up situations, experiences and problems, can make you evolve as a person and can make you evolve your spirit and soul :)

    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...

    I've been watching dumb romantic comedies lately, just trying to enjoy from a distance what other people with bigger balls have. And, this little gem is an awesome line, "Why don't you let go, move on with your life? It's not about what happened in the past, or what you think...
