Recently, an acquaintance had made a funny jab, or barb at my favorite movie list, which I had attached to my lengthy book recommendation list. The Movies I listed were Karate Kid, St. Elmos Fire, Vision Quest, Rocky, Matrix, and Top Gun – your basic “individual versus the odds” movie where the main character triumphs, and is driven by passion and perseverance to win. Indeed, these are my favorite type of movies because I relate. Perhaps, you do as well. and Tầm nhìn của Phim Mới
My acquaintance laughed as they expected me to have more intellectual, deep-thought type, movies on my list, and they were surprised – which made me think as to why I like those movies in the first place. You see, it’s not that I don’t like other movies which make me think, the intellectual movies, in fact, I like them very much.
However, being a writer, I often have extremely sophisticated screenwriting script type stories myself – many much better than anything I’ve seen – so it takes a lot to impress me – or in this case to trump my main driver of passion, strength of character, perseverance, and the ultimate victory over adversity.
Now then, what intellectual movies did I add to my list after I thought about that comment? Well, here is what I added to the list, perhaps these are movies which will wet your appetite for intellectual intrigue?
1. Logan’s Run
2. Blade Runner
4. Minority Report
5. Enemy of State
6. The Net
8. Star Trek Series
9. Vanilla Sky
10. District 9
12. Eagle Eye
14. Lord of War
15. Terminator Series
The reality is I see at least one new movie a week, unless none of the options available that suit my fancy. But I must say that my favorite movies are the ones where the individual conquers their fears, faces down their enemies, triumphs over adversity, and due to their strength of character and relentless nature perseveres and eventually succeeds. You can be the most intellectual person in the world, but without passion – what’s the use – do you see that point?
So, if you are looking for a self-help technique then go see a movie like that because it will reset your mind to the proper frame of reference to succeed at whatever it is you choose. If you really want to achieve anything good in life, it’s not going to be easy, but if you will fire-up your passion to go for it, you are already half way there. Please consider all this.
