Dead Poets Society

I thank Ryan Nicolas into coercing me to watch this powerful movie. :)))) It was easy for me to relate with this movie for a lot of reasons. =)) One, English has always been my favorite subject. (I'm lucky to have teachers who encouraged the appreciation of the world around us. :-") Second, I've always done what I wanted. ( I feel for those who have to meet their parents' expectations. :|) And third, I hate authoritative figures. (Those who don't listen to reason) :|

If it weren't for people who took risks where will we be? That's something I gained from watching the movie. There are many people in this world who will end up as doctors, lawyers, chemists, architects and engineers, which are essential jobs to sustain humanity. :> But I believe that some people also have to be dancers, actors, poets, writers, perhaps fashion designers even. :)))) We all have a role to play in this world and everyone has to play that role.

Emperor's Club is a classic :D Good Will Hunting and Finding Forrester are some of my favorite modern classics as well.... And The History Boys! :D

Into the Wild! I watched that last christmas :D i found the story quite powerful... knowing it was based on a true story and all @-)

I'll take a look into the other films... i'm sure THE Ms.Kate knows best anyway :))

Remember the Titans is also a great film. I've never seen The Debaters (also stars Denzel W.) yet, but I heard it's a must-see :))
