Friday Night Culture – Movies 2016

Image converted using ifftoany

There are a number of movies coming up this year that look just excellent! I’ll be honest though, the Captain America/Superman/Batman civil wars are not on my list! No thanks.

So here are some of the ones that I am really looking forward to. I’m not even sure if they are out yet, but if you’ve seen one of these, let me know how you liked it. But don’t tell me the ending!

The Man Who Knew Infinity – Based on a true story, a brilliant man from India goes to England, to share his work. Apparently he is light years ahead of the scientists there. He faces incredible racism and prejudice, but gradually becomes accepted for the brilliant person he is. And on top of that, he has very little formal education!

Me Before You – If you’ve been following the site for a while, you know I do have a little romance flowing through my veins. A young woman who has failed at other types of work, becomes the caretaker of a rich but paralyzed man. Yes you guessed it, they fall in love. I love how this film looks sensitive and heartwarming.

Pete’s Dragon – This looks so cool, as fantasy meets the real world. So how does a young boy survive living in the forest for 6 years by himself? The answer is, he has a very large friend! I’m looking forward to seeing how the boy, and dragon, are going to cope with modern society.

Ok so enjoy your weekend! Peace.

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!
