      Cool! Yet another thing we have in common! Can you believe I've never seen Gone With the Wind? I haven't seen Wuthering Heights either, but I loved the book. I didn't even know it was made into a movie. Where the Red Fern Grows is the first book I ever read when I was a kid that made me bawl my head off. I purposely haven't seen that movie because the book was so sad and I couldn't bear to see the movie.

        For some reason it is "Blade Runner."

        "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams ... glitter in the dark near Tannhauser Gate. All those ... moments will be lost ... in time, like tears ... in rain."

        It is too difficult to pick just one movie. I'll be back.

        Films that you may not have seen or are worth viewing a second time:

        1. Once Were Warriors
        2. Planes, Trains and Automobiles (worth a second look)
        3. Awakenings (worth a second look)
        4. Fargo
        5. Being There (worth a second look)
        6. Run Lola, Run
        7. Proof of Life
        8. Searching for Bobby Fisher
        9. October Sky
        10. True Romance
        11. Memento

              Brad I finally saw The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded this weekend. I'm getting ready to watch The Matrix again while the kids are gone.

              Did you really get into it? There's SO MUCH happening in that first movie, so many different levels of meaning, including theology. My sister is a major computer geek and was explaining bit to me, but she and her husband were Matrix nuts.

              I'd be interested in hearing what others thought too.

                  Martha,

                  The Matrix is one of those movies that people love or hate. The F/X are great, but the movie goes far beyond that. I've seen them several times, and each time I picked up another layer of meaning be it philosophy, religion, control, purpose, love, choice, belief, truth, faith, meaning, and "what is reality?" It's all there and more. Lots of foreshadowing and clues in the journey just like "Alice in Wonderland."

                  If you're a "computer geek" and understand the concept, it really makes you think on many different levels. A lot of people don't get it, but if you do "get it," it makes you really want to look further.
                  pt, it really makesyou think on many different levles.

                    Brad, glad you saw my post. I'm not a computer geek but my sister and her husband are. She was able to explain some of it to me on that level. Like you I could see so many excellent principles about religion (very reformed), philosophy, the power of choice, truth, fate/destiny, control ... I've thought about it a lot over the last few days. Just finished watching #1 for the second time.

                    I picked up on many messages relevant to SCI. My favorite is when Neo and Morpheus are Kung Fu fighting. Neo says, "You're faster than me." Then Morpheus asks, "Do you think my speed and strength have anything to do with my muscles?"

                    It's the power of the mind, of attitude. I thought about so many people here who've learned that valuable truth about life. I need to learn it for myself as well.

                      Some of my favorite line are:

                      Choi-"Hallelujah. You're my savior, man. My own personal Jesus Christ."
                      Neo- If you get caught using that...
                      Choi-I know. This never happened. You don't exist.
                      ****

                      "Do you think that's air your breathing?"
                      ****

                      Don't think you are know you are.
                      "Stop trying to hit me and hit me"
                      ****

                      "The Matrix is the world pulled over you're eyes to blind you from the truth."
                      ****

                      Morpheous-...their strength and their speed are still based in a world that is built on rules. Because of that, they will never be as strong or as fast as you can be."
                      Neo-What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets?
                      Morph.- No, Neo. I'm trying to tell you that when you're ready, you won't have to.

                        Thanks for the quotes Brad. Awesome. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                        What did you think of the third movie? I haven't seen it but my sister says she was disappointed.

                        I LOVED "Reloaded"--it happened to come on HBO about an hour after I finished watching #1. So I got saturated in The Matrix last weekend. Loved every second of it. [img]/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img]

                            My favorite of all time is "Lonesome Dove." It's six hours long and that tends to scare people away but it's time well spent. I know I've watched it about 100 times.

                            If I ever have a son, his name is going to be Augustus. After you watch this movie, you'll understand why.

                              Brad, a question about The Matrix. Is the reason they all wear sunglasses during the day is that they can finally "see" and it hurts their eyes? Remember Neo saying his eyes hurt and Morpheus saying it's because you're not used to using them?

                              If that's so, then why do the agents wear glasses too? Because they can "see" as well but are the bad guys?

                              Wheelhorse, I've probably seen Lonesome Dove 100 times too. What a great story. Augustus ... what a man! [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                              Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones portrayed those characters beautifully.

                                I certainly liked the first one the best because you were along on the same ride as Neo was. Revolutions was good, but by then you understood the concept and knew more of what to expect and that sense of awe was not as "virgin" as the first. It still made you think just as the other two, and if you don't pay close attention, you may miss some important ideas.
