Life Changing Movies

Tools    





Is there a movie that you've seen that has changed the way you look at things? What movie has most affected you personally, in that it made you re-think certain aspects of your life? For me, seeing the movie Babe led me to become a vegetarian. It was such a sweet movie! I'm eager to hear your responses.

I could've sworn that there was a thread already started on this matter, but I can't seem to find it.

Oh well, I would say that A.I. Artificial Intelligence would be a life changing movie.

As a writer I'm most interested to learn how this movie changed you. I didn't think it was the type that could change a person.

Mine was Stone's JFK. It didn't change me as much as solidify a vague political view of mine into a solid, crystal clear one.

I guess it didn't really change me, it touched me more than it changed me.

Here's how I see it...David went to the ends of the earth (literally) for his "mother" to love him.



"Why don't they teach logic in these schools?"
Bleh. I've got to raise an eyebrow to anyone who's politically infulenced by Stone's movies. Anyhoo, not many movies have changed my life...and the ones that have haven't done so dramatically. Only three come to mind just now:
  • Braveheart
  • It's a Wonderful Life
  • 12 Angry Men
I may think of others down the line.

The dark and scary deity of flames
Instinct

It just made me think about and pay attention to certain things; the more I did that, the more I changed.

there aren't really any movies that have changed me.the two that come to mind though that have effected me the most mentally are.platoon-just because it showed how crazy war can actually get.and Adam-a movie about john walsh's kid adam. he was abducted in a shopping mall and murdered.this film ahowed me just how cruel people can be, and just how laxed the system was when he was trying to get his kid back.

That's fair enough to me. I just couldn't understand how it could change a person. THE LAST EMPEROR, about a man in a 'cage' his entire life, really moved me, but it didn't change me. Well, as you say, not a lot..

Coming from a 'Jedi Master' who's so keen on Yoda, that's understandable. And I didn't say Stone's films, but JFK.



"Why don't they teach logic in these schools?"
Yes, I know. Which is one of Stone's films. I didn't say "all of Stone's films." I also don't understand what the Yoda/Jedi line is supposed to mean, exactly.

The best movies are ones that change the way you think, movies that can make an impact on your life.

I'm not doubleposting. I'm adding replies to other posts, as others are doing in this same thread.

Please explain if I'm missing something--

Don't reply to two messages back to back.

So if you reply to one message, don't turn around and reply to another message right after you get done replying to the first message.

Simply edit the first one, add in the quote from the other message your replying to and go that way.



I think that Seeing Michael Moore's films Roger and Me, and The Big One really changed my life. They certainly opened my eyes and got me thinking politically. Platoon was also an eye opener, since I never knew anything about the Vietnam war until that, and Born on the Fourth of July fits that bill, too. (Both films are Oliver Stone masterpieces, I might add.)
