Friday After Next
"Code Red! Pimp in distress!" and, of course, "that's just money mike, a little micro mini-pimp". Good stuff.

Peace.

Great recommendations folks :smile:
I'd add Fight Club to the list but it's too severe IMHO.
Keep those suggestions comming ... :smile:

Shawshank Redemption
True Romance
Shrek
Stand by Me
Any Given Sunday
Gladiator
Braveheart
Shine
Rounders
American Pie

These movies have happy endings, and tell tales of heroes who fall down, but get back up to fight.

Harvey. I love that film.


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

Rebirthing a new thread that I found while searching something else...

The newest from Cage : Adaptation. Couldn't think of a more appropriate movie with an anxious depressed main caracther who found a way to win over himself.

Nice story too... One of the very few hollywood movie I really enjoyed. (Adaptation and American Beauty are the only ones I can think of)...

And no, Requiem for a Dream won't inspire any depressed people, even if it's probably one of my 3 favorite movie ever!
