    I'm definitely not going to kill myself. It's indeed a great movie and changed my perspective...that doesn't mean that I didn't knew all the positive things that come with money but realised that they are so damn real and always there. Oh, and that you shouldn't go too far. Ah, and Scarface, and some Austrian movies. :)

    Napoleon Dynamite. Watching that movie made me realize just how stupid people actually are. And to this day I still don't understand why anyone would find that movie entertaining.

    I do not currently own Stanton Forward Senn Retractors or other surgical equipment. I also do not have a room with acoustic panels or extra drywall for sound-proofing purposes.

    Angus Thongs and perfect snogging.

    The first time I touched a snatch was during this film, back row preston Odeon.

    LOL I only watched that movie because my coworker was like "OMG THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME." The next day after I watched it, I told him he's an idiot.

    The Shawshank Redemption - there's too many life lessons in that movie, but you can probably summarize it with:
    Maybe also fight club (in reality, the book):

    Lots of people on BHW & IM in general should read this:


    There's also this which pretty much captures every generation born after the 50s:

    Taxi Driver; hard to explain why in a short sentence. I just feel I can relate to Travis Bickle. A good guy, who watched scumbags get ahead in life by being corrupt, immoral, etc. He's like a realitisc superhero, without all the comic aspects. Take those completely away. He's a hero, or rather want to be. But heroes don't work in the real world. They're outcasts. Shunned both by the lowlifes and the upper class. He truly is God's lonely man. That monologue could have come out my mouth.

    Apocalypse Now
    Again, very relatable main character. So quotable. Also I grew think of the US Army as the good guys, the defenders of truth, justice and democracy. Now I know it's rather the opposite. Imperialism, War Crimes and subverting democracy in the 3/4 of the world. They're no better than any empire. Stalin, Nixon, Reagan, Thatcher, Hitler, left, right, liberal, socialist. Like any group they have rotten apples in them, as well as good people. I think FDR was a good man. Or revolutionaries like Thomas Jefferson and Vladimir Lenin who fought against oppression.

    Fight Club
    More relevant today than ever. We are not what we own. But more and more people come to believe that.
    And this quote, I think it wasn't it the movie. But it's very thoughtful.
    ?I?ve met God across his long walnut desk with his diplomas hanging on the wall behind him, and God asks me, ?Why??
    Why did I cause so much pain?
    Didn?t I realize that each of us is a sacred, unique snowflake of special unique specialness?
    Can?t I see how we?re all manifestations of love?
    I look at God behind his desk, taking notes on a pad, but God?s got this all wrong.
    We are not special.
    We are not crap or trash, either.
    We just are.
    We just are, and what happens just happens.
    And God says, ?No, that?s not right.?
    Yeah. Well. Whatever. You can?t teach God anything.?

    Consider "God" as a metaphor for a dogmatic view of morality, what's good and evil and it's rather thought provoking.

    Why, because it exposes those rich Wall Street guys as immoral evil douches?

    To quote on my fave movies... Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets


    On a lighter note: Inglourious Basterds (sp?) because it's Jewish revenge porn against extreme right wingers, facists or nazi's or whatever you want to call them.

    "
    we're gonna be doin' one thing and one thing only... killin' Nazis"

    Maybe in my teens but after a certain point movies don't have much impact.

    I know Braveheart did something to my head at 16. I wanted to be William Wallace. Wanted to paint my face blue and slay all the leaders raping my towns people. So I did that by arguing with teachers more and more.

    Then American History X. I wanted to be a reformed.... nevermind.

    Gladiator made me wanna grab a tree branch and fight my neighbors dog. But instead I just growled at / bit my own dog.

    Pulp Fiction made me wanna fuck a guy in the ass real hard (no gay). My friend called me a racist remark on a trampoline one day. So I hump raped him as I tried to pull off my smelly sock and shove it in his mouth. At which point he bit my finger hard as fuck, I squirmed and he got me in a choke hold. I couldn't breathe so I rolled him off the trampoline, hit my head on the pavement, noticed my finger was bleeding and began to cry.

    That wasn't cool at all. When someone taps out, no means no, you let a mfkr breathe.

    I saw some movie about how to properly go down on a girl when I was about 15. I've used the technique every since with a high level of success.
