        Favorite movie: "The Wizard of Oz

        The Wizard of Oz, reaches me on all levels in life and even on a simple forms of the music, dance and visuals. It combines a good reason to bring together the child and the adult story that will lasted the test of time.

        Life is a journey with many dangers and opportunities, with a few challenges of balancing work and the rest of our lives. People are really are seeking an "informal" worship service outside ourselves for solutions and distractions. The Yellow brick road has no boundaries and spiritual strength is our integrity. It awakens when one is willing to connects with the divine and confront with the unknowns

        It connects with the balance within us and our life journey that is forever expanding.  Each foot step followed those footsteps onto the seemingly endless freeway seeking a better life. The American Dream can become a  nightmare and of mass consumer fraud. Wicked Witch of the East wants revenge and holds Dorothy accountable in life and growth, as the world seemly has a feeling of an unchanging reality.

        It’s about Humanity story, that journey an awakening community of conscious minded of healing. Visionary individuals seeking solutions for living in life! On our soul journey, either in our real world life journey as the Wizard notice is becoming of age by thinning of his hair. A key moments in my life, he confronts the challenges into our deeper, inner wisdom of reflection. Wizard of OZ has a journey in life and seeking balance. Tin man seeking a heart, lion courage, Scare Crow a brain, it can also relate to politics.

        My strength is the lion’s courage. I imagination I was the scare crow seeking a brain, oddly enough the scare crow came up with most of the ideas on the journey,and so for the others.

        What is your strength and what are you seeking?

      My 3 favourites are :

      Inception
      Shutter Island
      The Manchurian Candidate

      Why? Because all three reveal how the mind works and in a subliminal way each is educating the world to come out of its self imposed trance. to read more go to my hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/Inception-the-DVD

    Nice topic i can say. In fact it's hard to choose 3 of them, but at the moment it should be like this:

    Usual suspects
    Inception
    12 angry men

    Great movies. 12 angry men is classic, that you should see it haven't before. Others should be seen by all people in general smile
    Also if there would be a place for #4 it would be The Rounders.

      In the Wizard of OZ, the trip downs the yellow brick road

      There was the Tin man who was seeking a heart
      The lion seeking courage
      The Scare Crow was seeking a brain

      My strength is the lion’s courage
      I imagination I was the scare crow seeking a brain, oddly enough the scare crow came up with most of the ideas on the journey

      What would any of you, online be? 
      Your strength and what are you seeking?

      Try it; you will learn a lot about your self

    know oneposted 7 years ago

    1. The Portrait of a Lady
    2. Trainspotting
    3. Sex, Lies, and Videotape

    (I'd love to squeeze LOTR TT in there.)

    These are the movies that have had the greatest impact, during and after. If I could articulate the 'why' they probably wouldn't be the Top 3.

    The Godfather- Need I elaborate ? All star cast- great storyline.

    A clockwork Orange- Kubrick is one of the masters of the bizarre

    The Big Lebowski- I love the Coen Brothers and even wrote a hub about them. And I had not laughed as hard as I had the first time I saw this movie.
