Friday Night Culture – SciFi Movies

space 3

So what’s a great way to spend Valentine’s weekend? Watching science fiction movies of course! OK, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but I do like this genre of movie a lot (except for the violence), so here are two of my absolute favorites.

Oblivion 2013. This is my most favorite Sci-Fi movie of all, for a number of reasons. I love the concept of emotional memory. The main character (Tom Cruise) has had his memory wiped, but he keeps having flashbacks of the woman he used to love, who he later meets! He also finds out he has been fighting for the wrong side, and joins the humans. By the way, technology in this movie is often seen as anti-human. H’mm. I won’t spoil it, but I also love the very end of the film.

Star Trek 2009. I grew up with a lot of Star Trek movies and shows, and I think this is the best of all of them. This film shows Spock and Kirk growing up and the challenges they each faced. It also shows the beginning of their relationship, which began in the Star Fleet Academy. They didn’t start out as friends at all! There is a lot of action here too.

The Time Traveler’s Wife 2009. I’m taking a chance with this one because I have not seen it yet! But it looks very good. It is absolutely a romance, with some time travel mixed in. I think My Love and I, would really enjoy it! Yes, if you are a couple I highly recommend watching movies the other person likes, or compromising in order to bless them.

Have a great weekend!

Dances with Wolves – The Wedding

Happy Valentines Day!

I thought about this film last night and wanted to share it with you. I first posted it last year. First Nations people speak their language as a young couple is married! I love hearing Lakota!

This is a beautiful piece of film towards the end of the movie. It begins with the giving of gifts so that the main character, (formerly Lt. Dunbar) can get married. He keeps checking to see if his gifts have been accepted. Then he talks with a friend, Wind in His Hair, the very same person that had charged at him, and yelled at him, in the beginning of the film. Now they are friends.  Then there is the wedding!

When you watch this short piece keep an eye out for two things. First there is the narration done by the main character (Dances with Wolves), on what it’s like getting married. It’s very nice. Secondly there is a feeling of what it was like living in a village. Beautiful!

Blessings to everyone, and PEACE!

1938

1938

I was laughing, at Cary Grant,

and Katharine Hepburn,

black and white,

until I started remembering,

the history.

Madmen were alive then, drunk,

on power and racism,

speaches of hate, war,

twisted cross, fire and bombs,

millions of dead bones to their credit.

Accountable for each fragment,

each ruined life.

I also noticed

there were no African Americans,

in that movie,

prosperity was for whites only.

Decades later,

the struggle, protests,

sitting, in the front of the bus,

Rev. King being a light,

water cannons,

turned on humans. Marches.

“I have a dream…”

An entire group of people,

fighting,

to be considered equals,

PEOPLE.

So the movie isn’t funny,

anymore.

A lot was about to happen,

1938, and beyond.
