People always make fun of me for this, but I think Inception had a pretty big impact on me. It led me to think a lot about reality and it was also the first time in a while I'd seen a realistic 'love' portrayal from the perspective of a man. It got all my cylinder's flying on an artist front. I love fantastical movies, similar movies that influenced me creatively are Neverending Story, Hook, Peter Pan. :)

One movie that really got to me was Cyber Bully,I know it probably happens but to see it on screen made me so angry, why certain teenagers think they are so much better than others well guess what they are not, Bullies need to get a life and smarten up,they obviously have issues to act this way.

This movie made me realize that all of us take life for granted every single day . We take out freedom for granted. In this movie it shows you just how fast all your freedom and loved ones can be taken away.
But then it also shows you that if we all work together and all fight for the things we want we truly can achieve the highest goals . The sky is never the limit ya know ?
This movie inspires me to never give up and live life to the fullest.

There are two movies that I'm really fond of. The first is "Annie" (the 1982 film). I just love the song "Tomorrow" and find it so inspirational that I sing it to myself when I need to cheer up or have a more positive outlook on life. My dad and I would always sing it to each other when I was little, so whenever I think of the song, I also think of him.

The second movie is "To Sir, With Love" with Sydney Poitier. It's about a teacher who inspired troubled students to change their lives and behaviour. It has influenced me greatly as a teacher and I can relate to the movie so much because my first class had major behaviour issues and we worked very hard together to turn things around. It's also inspired me to try to make as much of a difference as I can in the lives of my students because for some of them, school is their only safe haven.


"Wild" with Reese Witherspoon on Jan 15, 2016 @ 09:24 pm

It's a beautiful book and movie.

The most affecting part of her story was that in the end, she reflected upon herself and (not literally) said "Listen, you've done some negative things. You've acted in some destructive ways. I've been at war with you for so long, and now, I just want to be your friend. I want to love you unconditionally, not despite your flaws, but because of them and because you are who you are today."

She recognizes her actions, her faults, and her destructive choices and (literally) quotes "how wild it was to let it be", to love herself, and to realize that every step she took brought her to the things that she was meant to have in her life. Darkness can lead to beauty.

Being someone who was in an emotionally, and occasionally physically, abusive relationship throughout my mid-teens to early-twenties, I connected with the woman this movie is based upon in many ways. Yes, she struggled with a substance, not a turbulent relationship and abusive partner... but I can assure you that both are addictions. She was unfaithful to her husband, and admittedly, I was unfaithful to my boyfriend. I blamed his abuse for that choice, solely, for a long time and then used my cheating as a way to justify the ways he treated me. It was the darkest time of my life, and I was in a pit of destruction, sadness, depression, reliance, loneliness, and negativity.

But it brought me to the man that I love today - and good, and respectful man who treats me like his Queen. That part of my life, that chapter, created the person that I am today. It took me a long time to come to terms with my past self and my ex-boyfriend... but once I did, I found myself deeply connected with that quote "How wild it was to let it be"... to just accept your past and your choices. To live on.

This movie just showed me that the people who grew up in a difficult place without a mother and with bad peers have the greatest and biggest hearts. I was crying through all the movie

Rio Bravo with Ricky Nelson from 1958 because at 12 yrs. old when it came out I was totally in love. I remember my dad teasing me.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas on Jan 28, 2016 @ 04:08 pm

It was a tragic look into how things truly were in the Holocaust. I have never been so moved by a film. It was so well done and just heart wrenching. What a truly awful time in our Earth's history.
