    I agree for the most part except for the fact they are not a single stone. They consciously decide to become an immovable object like a log laying in the middle of the road. People crash into it, because it is stagnant and is out of place. Then they attribute their position (very very F thing to do no offence) to some sort of higher calling. Basically they receive the validation they need to remain a huge lump of nothing standing in everyone's way. This reinforces the size of the log.

    Of course the waves start crashing. And if the wave is the person, there is only so many times it can crash before it wears itself down and out. This is where the log gets to say, "See, I cannot be moved, because you were meant to crash." (puke)

    This whole philosophy, bugs the living shit out of me. Lol, I guess I would be more like the Evil guy in that movie. I cannot stand people who don't just fucking move, then attribute their position to a higher calling. I.E. looking back to say, see, you crashed because I couldn't be moved, while I tend to believe, why didn't you just move?

    This dynamic happens all the time irl with people who believe themselves to be powerful. It absolutely is about being a single stone.

    Strip away all justification, etc, and you see the people who don't budge are the ones creating conflict, then because they stand through it, they become the judgers of that conflict. I am reminded of the saying, "Never argue with a fool because they will knock you down to their level and beat you with experience." The whole thing is a self serving game.

    Basically, if the priest wasn't such a goddamned idiot, he wouldn't have received even half the amount of conflict that he did. He could have found better ways to solve the issue.

    Instead, he made the situations (all of them) worse, by both causing and allowing people to take out their rage, in some passive aggressive war. The whole psychology of it makes my skin crawl. The whole point missed, because I can't seem to see beyond that.

    That read like an ExxP's rant on IxxJ's for shiz, and about a character in a film who clearly wasn't an IJ, and had a tumor rewiring his brain straight for crazy town. :crazy:

    I know it's a personal projection derail, but I do feel your general frustration, and yes he clearly was an (N)F on account of his blind idealism. NFs are fully capable of doing stupid as well as any other type with our own special flavor of crazy.

    I'm a woman of faith and ideals, but I'm a woman of confirmed reality, too.

    I think this thread had a rocky start. We are the only two people who watched the movie and I rather liked it!

    How can we encourage participation? ...

    I bet if you changed the title to <RANDOM BODY PART> Appreciation Thread we'd get more hits than a nervous trick in Charlie Sheen's hotel room.

    Just kidding. I had someone PM me with the first movie suggestion being Crazy as Hell. So I figure that could be our next movie. I will also add the other two movie suggestions to the OP and start a line up.

    Oh this is a cooperative effort... Well, I've seen it (several times) and love it. I thought this was just a thread for Teeg to tell us about Fern Gully.
