Movies are wonderful art pieces. So I thought we would share our three favorite movies. I think we can learn a lot from certain movies, and so I shall post my favorites. I urge everyone to watch them.

Allow me to name them:
1. Wild Strawberries directed by Ingmar Bergman
2. In The Presence of a Clown by Ingmar Bergman
3. The Seventh Seal by Ingmar Bergman

Close runner ups include Summer with Monika also by Bergman, Casablance, Doctor Zhivago, Bitter Moon, and more recently Pan's Labyrinth.

As you may notice other than PL all of these films are slightly old, but I urge you to watch them. All three of my favorites are by Bergman, and he was a master, truly.

Fight Club will always probably be my #1 because of the political philosophy. And on top of that it's an incredibly cool movie in every other way. If there's a way a movie could be better than Fight Club then I haven't figured it out yet.

Number two would probably be Storm of the Century (based off of Stephen King). It grabs you at the beginning of the movie and never lets go. It is based upon the Trolley Example at a fundamental level and could be the basis of in-depth philosophical discussion if enough people watched it to debate it.

I guess Waking Life would be my number three, it's just non-stop intense philosophical discussion for the entire movie. It's much more profound regarding dreams than something like Inception, after watching it I had an amazing night while asleep as my mind processed what I had just experienced.

Honorable mentions:
Idiocracy
Matrix
LOTR and Hobbit series
Star Trek and Star Wars series
80s Schwarzenegger flicks (I grew up on them)
Falling Down
Cube and Pi
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Pan's Labyrinth, Hero, Anna Karenin (I like the new one).
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

> Watchmen.

- Feel-Good:
> It's a Wonderful Life.

I actually did just find a copy of it on YouTube, but it wasn't in English so that didn't work. Apparently it's not a very well-known film because I'm having more difficulty than usual in finding a decent source online. I've read some of the reviews and they are mostly praising the film, so I'm definitely intrigued enough to be annoyed by the lack of results right now, lol.

Wild Strawberries is a very good movie. Haven't seen too much by Bergman though.

My favorites would be
1. There Will Be Blood
2. No Country for Old Men
3. Birdman
