"What dreams may come"

It’s been a while since I last saw a moving movie. And I saw one last night which moved me to tears. Robbie Williams as the main character probably puts the A star in the acting, but then the shots, sceneries and plot are really well thought out, and beautifully done.

It touches so many issues, mainly dealing with life and death, and all the in betweens, and life after death, and all the attachments people. Which gets you thinking, about those moments in life you’ve had and are still going to encounter, moments which you should cherish because once they go, they won’t return.

Where did I cry? Mostly the scenes where you could see that which most connect people together, ie their humanity. Hugging between two lovers, between father and son, between a mother and her long lost child... the scenes where goodbye is a difficult thing to do, let alone say...scenes where the past come back to make you smile, or even shiver...

Really recommend you to watch it if you haven't already...or watch it again if you have!

Some memorable lines from the movie:

What's true in our minds is true, whether some people know it or not.

What some folks call impossible, is just stuff they haven't seen before.”

Albert: So what is the "me"?
Chris Nielsen: My brain I suppose.
Albert: Your brain ? Your brain is a body part. Like your fingernail or your heart. Why is that the part that's you?
Chris Nielsen: Because I have sort of a voice in my head, the part of me that thinks, that feels, that is aware that I exist at all.
Albert: So if you're aware you exist, then you do. That's why you're still here.

Thought is real. Physical is the illusion. Ironic, huh ?

Sometimes, when you lose, you win.

It was good, but wasn't really of biblical perspective, but new age. The real truth is when people die, they stay in the grave until the son of God, Jesus returns to reign(1 Thessalonians 4:14-17, Revelation 20:4-6, 21). The ones who dedicated their lives to him will transform from human to divine and reign with Christ for 1,000 years, then live in paradise in the new earth for eternity and the unsaved will get cast to outer darkness where there's pain and sadness. Only Jesus Christ ascended to his place. The common belief of people goin directly to a different realm when they die was invented by men centuries ago. I suggest get the book of God(Bible) and read it. I did enjoy this film though, it reminds me of better hope of the future. Chris did the same thing Jesus Christ did, save his soulmate from herself.
