    Crips and Bloods: Made In America (2009) directed by pro skateboarder and director Stacy Peralta

    This movie is a must-see if you have the remotest interest in gangs, African-American history, the history of Los Angeles or sociology.

    I'm probably just a wuss, but I found "Mr. Holland's Opus" incrediblly moving. I was bawling my eyes out!

    "The Pursuit of Happyness" also got me. The whole thing I had a lump in my throat.

    Taps.

    George C. Scott, Timothy Hutton, Sean Penn, and a very young, bulked-up Tom Cruise... it was quite the interesting film. Makes you wonder whether you should really believe in the things you believe in.

    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
    And eternity in an hour

    I haven't been profoundly changed, in any way, by any movie that I've actually watched.

    Having said that, I've caught a few glimpses of, the theatrical trailer, a few Youtube slices, etc., from a odd flick called,: Synecdoche New York, and I have been entranced ever since. -- I won't be watching the movie though, as the overall idea I pulled from those few short minutes is probably just my own strange formulation of what the movie is about, or what the characters are like, personality-wise, storyline-wise, etc..

    The ideas I pulled are wonderfull though. Who knows? Maybe I will watch it - even though my high and probably unmeetable expectations will undoubtably ruin the thing for me, forever. Maybe.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Alright I'll answer seriously. The one movie that moved me personally was We Are Marshall. Now I know it really wasn't a great movie... I don't really care for Matthew McConaughey although I think he managed to keep his shirt on in this movie.

    The thing is the american side of my family is from just outside of Huntington, WV. So despite the low quality of the film it was still able to connect me to a tragedy that had a real impact on my family's community.

    We just watched "Monster", and I would like to come back and comment on it more. I was glad to see they took an emotionally and psychologically complex approach to the story. Has anyone else seen it? or another movie you would like to discuss?
    1. Requiem for a Heavyweight
    2. I am a Camera
    3. Reflections from a Golden Eye
    4. East of Eden

    Matrix did not have her. Or Newman. Or that Jamie.
