This discussion was started based on comments from another discussion about sleep.

I like to watch science based disaster movies like: Dante's Peak, Volcano, Outbreak, Independence Day, Day After Tomorrow...

For some reason I like to watch movies I can find problems with and then watch them over and over. I can fall asleep to them while the world is exploding or freezing or other major problems...

What do you watch?

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe has become a favorite of late. Good triumphing over evil. Bigger purpose...never know when you will fall into a new world...

I like foreign films and was a big fan of Merchant-Ivory films. Room with a View is one of my favorites along with my Beautiful Launderette.

Maria, I understand. I no longer fear death for sure. In fact, there are so many people there whom I miss so much that I practically long for it.....Sometimes it feels like I live in the twilight zone here...Mama is more there than here these days..she's alive as far as breath, but surely is not living...I commented on another thread this morning that at times it feels like I am literally living in a funeral home, except that I change her and see if she will drink some ensure every couple of hours...a very sad existence...for her and for me...I frequently find myself singing that old time hymn "This world is not my home"....quite frequently...

My husband and I saw the Shadowlands DVD in early 2000's.
Anthony Hopkins was great as CS Lewis (my favorite author).
Some years later - Bill was diagnosed with cancer and we took our own journey into the dark.
The movie did a good job showing ....... the raw pain, hope, pain, agony, fear, darkness. Bill and I made that journey together in 2010. We loved each other always and not a day goes by that I don't miss him. I embrace that sacred ache - it's my longing to go home.
Truth is, I fight resentment toward the elders who have taken over my home. Their presence casts a twilight zone over the house. (a smelly one)!

But I try to find purpose in giving solace to these other human beings along the way.......till I go home.

Oh Maria...I love Shadowlands as well...also Legends of the Fall....I love almost anything with Anthony Hopkins..but those two are all time favorites....

On a more day to day tv level...I have to admit I am a huge fan of the series The Walking Dead....heck, lately I feel like I am a character in that one...

Ah...Music flicks. Best ever was AMADEUS with Tom Hulce as the composer. A great costume drama, beautifully done with wonderful music.

The movie Quartet is one of my favorites. Story of retirement home of musicians and old loves. Maggie Smith is great as always.

Ya know, I was in a motel in south MI returning from visiting my parents and came across SCREAM QUEENS 2 hour pilot on the motel basic cable. I couldn't stop watching the d*mn thing. It was soooo over the top, nothing sacred murder and mayhem in the sorority world of these nasty girls. I felt very guilty for watching the thing for 2 hours. Me..A 60 year old guy.....and before you write me off as an old pervert, the neat thing about the show was watching the girl nerds. It was good stuff. But I tuned into the series later at home, with my wife, and it did seem a little yucky. But the pilot was truly great black humor.
