I watched Dead Man Walking when I was in college and that made me re-evaluate my theories on the death penalty. It did not change my belief, just my perspective.

Nope. Can't say that about any movie.

"Tuesdays with Morrie" ... really made me look at Living life very differently. I was at the right time in my divorce grief to listen to the message, so I'm Living more than Existing now.

Honestly star wars and aliens. Shocker right, i know i talk alot about them. I watched them as an infant literally a few months old, and than kept watching from there. Theyve shaped my life dramatically. From the places ive moved, etc. Im not a person who you would assume was such a nerd if you just seen me but if the subject comes up, youd be shocked by the amount of scifi or just movie stuff i know.

The 5 People You Meet In Heaven and The Color Purple (the book more so) both had a huge positive impact and ET traumatized me for life.

The Kid. It's a Disney movie with Bruce Willis that came out maybe 10-12 years ago. It made me re-evaluate the importance of people/family and friends and realize that working yourself to death for money was a ridiculous concept; money can't take care of you when you are sick, laugh with you when you are silly, or hand you a tissue to dry your tears. Very good movie. It's the only movie that has EVER moved my husband to tears (and when he sees that I posted this, he's going to be mad!)

Cool Hand Luke very recently changed my outlook on a lot of things. I bucked it the first time we watched it because there is a ton of religious imagery and comparisons of Luke to Christ, with his campmates being sort of like the apostles.

The second time we watched, I really paid attention to what was going on and how they revered Luke for never giving up. There's a line where Luke goes into a church on his final escape attempt that really struck me in the heart.

"You made me this way, so tell me Old Man, where do I fit in? How's it all gonna end?"

I've always been a free-spirit and never really let labels stick to me. But, I never really fit in anywhere. I never felt accepted for who I am. Because of this, I let my voice fall to a whisper instead of a very enthusiastic yell. I've come up with a thousand different ways to make a million dollars and implemented absolutely none of them because I was afraid of how my family would react to my interest in all things related to sex. Since watching CHL, I have submitted one piece to Eden Lit and started photographing some of my review items for my adult blog. I plan to get actual fun to read stuff in there very soon. And I've started using my real name on my Eden profile. It's a small step, but definitely in the right direction.

You are inspiring. I have thought the same way, even purchased web sites and gave up due to ignorance. Thank you.

Schindler's List. It's a lesson in humanity.

No, thank you. You made me blush and put a smile on my face.

All the Star wars movies made a huge impact on my life. So did, I dreamed of Africa. It was about a woman who had a car accident and she decides to move to Africa and live her dreams. I watched that movie two days before I had a serious car accident. It made me do a lot of thinking.

Good Will Hunting was another movie which impacted my life. I made the decision to quit college days after I saw it.
