The last few weeks have been pretty stressful with some projects at work. I’ve ran into a lot of procedure issues with my latest project. Sometimes the solution isn’t easy to find. But I remembered a lesson from the movie Patch Adams. If you haven’t seen it, then you should make it your next movie to watch.
Patch Adams is based on a true story about a man who self-committed himself to mental care center. While at the center, Patch met some interesting people. Then while sharing experiences with others, he realizes his true passion to help people. But one character at the institution shared a valuable lesson. That lesson is that you need to look beyond the problem to find the solution.
I don’t want to ruin a good movie for you. So I won’t tell you the rest of the details about it. But you can check out this clip from the movie about the lesson.
It’s been a long time since November 1995, when they released the first Toy Story. I’m excited about the third installment. I didn’t think they were ever going to make another one. I’ve always been a big fan of story telling through personifying everyday objects. Disney/Pixar does a great job of making things larger than life. Anyways the offical release is June 18th, 2010. Till then let’s enjoy the trailers! “To infinity and beyond!”
In the mood for a cute movie that will make you laugh? How about a touching love story that will move you to tears? Well you can have both in Disney/Pixar’s latest movie, Up. Matt and I, along with our friends Catie and David went to see this movie in 3D yesterday afternoon. I’m sure you’ve seen the previews, but they don’t do the movie justice. It opens with one of the famous Shorts, the best I’ve seen so far, about Storks delivering babies…but that’s all I’m saying, because I sure don’t want to spoil it for you!
Then we get to the actual movie, which opens with a scene of a little boy in an aviator’s hat and goggles watching in awe a documentary about his hero. On the way home, he meets up with a spunky little girl named Ellie, who is also enamored with this same hero. As the movie progresses we get to see how their relationship blooms.
Later on we meet a goofy, kindhearted little boy named Russell, who is a Wilderness Explorer, similar to our Boy Scouts, who is desperate to earn his final patch to make him a Senior Explorer.
We also encounter such crazy characters as Kevin, an enormous multi-colored bird, and Doug, a lovable dog whose master created a collar which allows him to talk.
Long story made slightly shorter, this movie was great! Two thumbs up (eight if you count the others that I saw the movie with)! This is a great family film or just something fun to go see. Don’t waste time, and head to the theater to see in in 3D!
