Wow. I noticed that most of my entries the past week or so have been very intense. So, let’s take a step back. For goodness sake, it’s Thanksgiving week! And we also need to get many of our blog lurkers and stalkers off the sidelines and onto the comments.
No one will bite…but I can’t guarantee it after this week.
Here’s the simple question:
What are you go to feel good movies that you watch to lift your spirits? The films you watch when you’re feeling down, knocked down, or in need of inspiration?
Yesterday, I asked this blog community to post some of their most influential films. Reading people’s contributions got me thinking all day about some of those films. I shared four on my entry yesterday and am adding a few more to comprise my Top 10 ‘most influential films’ today for the heck of it.
One of the films is JoyLuck Club because it hits home in many ways. I just couldn’t measure up to my older brothers. I’m embarrassed to say that I cried like a baby when I saw this film since this hurts my street cred as an ultimate fighter angry asian man. But oh well. Here’s the ‘Best Quality Heart’ scene from YouTube. Anyone else?
A month ago, I asked my readers a simple question about “the book that influenced you” and was encouraged by peoples’ responses since there were books I hadn’t even heard of. So, in that vein, I’m asking another simple question today to balance out an intense blog week with posts about abortion and oppression of women. I want to thank folks for engaging in such thoughtful and respectful dialogue. One of my hopes in blogging is to create a level of Community and Conversation – all while hoping to direct people to the life of Christ.
In addition to “regulars” sharing their answers, I am especially inviting the lurkers and quiet blog readers to chime in. No one will bite your head off. This is your chance to join in and become one of the cool people.
Here’s the question:
What are the films that have influenced you the most and why?
