Does it surprise anyone that gangster movies were put up

Scarface is about a drug dealer

The best movies are rarely one dimensional. They may appear to be about a gangster or gangsters, but if you look deeper - and what makes some of these movies great - is they are much more than that. For youngsters the initial draw may be the violence, etc., but if the film has been written well enough, the characters seem like people we can identify with. Maybe they have flaws like we do, maybe they make mistakes that we've made. If you can connect with a character on an emotional level (even someone like a drug dealer) you can surely appreciate not to make the same or similar poor decisions.

Other times you just want to switch-off and enjoy. Also, clearly it's not best to take moral cues from characters in movies, but sometimes we get help or inspiration from the most unlikeliest sources.

Well, I won't flog this dead horse any further considering nothing seems to be sinking in on your end, but suffice to say I've not wrapped a gun up in a towel and murdered my corrupt landlord, neither have I asked my friends why they think I amuse them, nor have I smashed a bathroom door down and slapped someone around, neither have I asked someone to bite the curb then stomped on their head. So make of that what you will. If you're the kind of person who is easily led then watching movies, listening to music, etc., is probably not the best thing to do.

Yeah, sadly it does happen. It is strange as these girls are usually savvy about most other things, but when it comes to matters of the heart they believe the bull about "love finding a way". Whatever. :biggrin2:

LOL to be honest, they shud watch films like japanes/korean horror movies, that way the only worries they will have, is not an estranged boyfriend, but can they sleep in the dark.

On another side not, if i cud pick a 6th film, id pick Antwone Fisher, amazing movie, a biographic movie about an orphan whos in the american navy, awesome
