On my Facebook profile there is a section to list my favorite books and my favorite movies. There are pictures of the DVD cover for most of the ones that you list.
My list of movies grows every month. I really like comedies and well written adventure stories. I do not like a lot of violence or brutality. Some movies are so graphic and disturbing that i will turn them off and not watch the rest of it. Some movies I won’t even start to watch if I know ahead of time that they are violent.
It really bothers me to think that people can be so cruel and inhumane to each other. I don’t think this aggression is a natural condition of people, but maybe it is. If we think about it, all throughout history we have heard of horrible tortures and executions carried out. Very few periods of peace and prosperity but huge chunks of time devoted to war. It is so sad.
My top favorite movie has been ET every since I first watched it. I love the way the children behaved toward the alien and how predictable the adults can be. That movie is just as much about our human condition as it is about dealing with the possibility of life someplace other than Earth.
