Nat’s Movie Pic, How Do You Know

How do you know,  The best scenes in the movie for me is the hospital scene when long time boyfriend proposes. He knows she is a worry wort but instead of seeing her as a neurotic worrier, he sees her as having  a beautiful big heart that is overly caring. Another moment is when Paul Rudd’s character(George) gives Lisa(Reese Witherspoon) the play doh as a gift and its meaning.  In our search for the right fit, the person who we choose as are life long partner, has to get you, understand you, the movie delivers the message.  When you get or appreciate the meaning that is illustrated or interpreted by the body  of work, art, its wonderful.

We have different was of learning or understanding a thing. Sometimes it is by images, by reading, by doing, film, music, that we get the bigger picture or the picture is presented to us.

Nat’s Movie Pic, Cake

Cake made the list as well.  The marriage between the director and actor is magical in a great movie.   The actor has to be believable, embrace and relay the characteristics of the character they are playing. Aniston’s character is in constant physical pain, in addition to something else, (won’t reveal) and she displayed a super performance.

I watched three movies Wild, How Do You Know and Cake this past weekend.  I enjoyed them.  Two of the movies were based around loss, the death of  a loved one.  I lost my dog and I miss her terribly.  My dog Sandy was one of a kind, beautiful, smart, loving and a family protector. My seven year old niece and 6 year old nephew bring her up periodically, out of the blue, they say how they miss her. I use to take them on walks with her, she was always around.

I arrived home 30 minutes ago and I am watching World News Tonight discussing the blizzard storm in the North East Area of the U.S.  I wish all of you well and hope the storm does little to no damage on its path.  Be safe.

Nat’s Movie Pic, Wild

I loved the movie  Wild, loved it !   It had my favorite two things in it, nature, ( in its awe, breath taking scenery)  the Pacific Crest Trail, and then the beautiful biographical story of Cheryl Strayed,her personal struggle, hike of  her life.  To take a 3 month hike alone takes balls, it is the ultimate survival challenge.  It is gutsy to want to stop and face your pain, to figure out why you made poor choices or what caused you to take a hurtful, harmful path.  I am a big advocate for self reflection, analyzation, trying to become the better you.  Learning to see and really appreciate all the beauty around you. That some of our ugly or less imperfect choices are what makes us that much more beautiful in our growth, or part of it.

We all have times that we wonder why certain situations happen to us, some are devastatingly traumatic and we may never fully recover, however, we have to strive to be the best version of ourselves.

 

Must See Documentary

Ethos, is a documentary to watch ! It is in its entirety on YouTube here for your viewing.    The information provided in the film is to get you to think about how we keep corporations in business, if we changed what we bought, we would see the change we want. It goes into other important areas (Banks, Private Bankers of Federal Reserve Bank ,Corporations,ect..) that many people fail to see.

There is an abundance of good documentaries on the internet, you just have to research and depending on your viewing choices, you tube will offer similar suggestions based on your areas of interest.

 

 

Carbon Copy

Carbon Copy came out in 1981, just a great movie about racism,It is simply a classic  with great dialogue, glossing over huge racial stereo types with comedy.  I appreciate and enjoy movies much more in this decade.

There is a documentary on marketing that I want to watch, and I truly believe that racism is something that is marketed.  How many of us have ever had a personal negative experience with a different race?  If racism is marketed we stay divided as a country, as a globe .  Look back at what Edward Bernays accomplished with  group marketing.  If the powers at be package racism and market it , we buy it, as they do with so many other  things.

Must See Movie, Joe vs The Volcano

The eighties, nineties, and some earlier movies are just great to go back to.  Dialogue is so important , the message or messages it leaves you with.  That time period in movies was minimal and more realistic, people in film were normal looking and we related to them much easier.  Joe Versus  The Volcano, just a great movie, with a great message. There  are so many great lines in this film. If you have a chance , watch it!
