    I was watching My Blueberry Nights

    and it made me think a lot, especially about a topic that seems to recur here on EP, namely breakups, broken hearts, lost loves, and starting over. Besides just loving Wong Kar Wei's style including both visuals and soundtrack, I really loved the characters in this film. I find...

    Here are some of the movies

    that totally changed my perspective about life.. Into the wild: realised how life is not just about material possessions and being stable/settled in life and how important it is to be free spirited. FightClub: How consumerism is eating away our dreams and spirit to conquer...

    Midnight in Paris. Watched it twice now.

    And read the script twice as well. Woody Allen is so good in writing and directing! I love Paris and hope to return to experience most of what was depicted in the film :) I'm a sentimental person...romanticizing life. But that's okay! Life is always bound to be a little...

    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.

    I love the feeling after you see

    such a good and inspiring movie because it really makes you think! That moment doesn't always last long but the fact that movies can do that is crazy!

    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...

    Perks of Being A Wallflower.

    I'm watching it now. I've seen it at least fifty times (no exaggeration) and it seems to hit a bit closer to home each time I watch it. It's one of those films that I consider to be a friend. I think we all feel that way about at least one or two. You can almost put yourself...

    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...

    The Perks of being a Wallflower left me feeling

    like I could conquer the world. The character Charlie stole my heart. Both the book and the movie made my cry.

    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...

    Which is why I wish life wasn't

    so ordinary. I want a thrill of something. Zombie apocalypse perhaps? Kidding. Just not world ending kind of thrill. Just need that rush of excitement of some sort. Ordinary is safe, but boring.

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

    Watched "Garden of words" today.

    It just stopped me. Made me pause for a while and question what I'm doing in life. Made me think about all the decisions I've made. All the people I've let go whom I'll never see again. I'm just sitting here now wishing it would rain again.
