The Greatest Showman (2017), a musical movie based on true story of P.T. Barnum, the founder of Barnum and Bailey Circus. I knew I’m late by almost 2 years to watch this awesome movie. I’m glad that I did make a choice to watch it this morning, and it indeed a Greatest Show after all.
“No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.” -P.T. Barnum
Yes, indeed. If you’re doing as everyone is doing, you will definitely getting the same result. You won’t get different result from others, if you’re doing the same, worst case that you might get bad result too. Let’s put aside the real P.T. Barnum story, and focus on the movie storyline.
Barnum have a mind full of imagination, he dream about everything, which seem to be unrealistic to others.
“Men suffer more from imagining too little than too much.” -P.T. Barnum
Not only applicable to men, to everyone instead. You only suffer when you imagination is limited. Imagination can be as crazy as possible, because it is just an imagination. If your own imagination is limited, I really can not imagine how yours real life will be.
“When you’re careless with other people, you bring ruin upon yourself.” -Jenny Lind
I agreed with statement above fully. Careless will definitely lead you to doom. Jenny Lind admire Barnum because he can see her potential and trust her for real. Sadly that Jenny pull out from her music tour after discover that Barnum do not love her. Salute to Barnum for not being drifted, but mostly is because ONLY profit and lost stays in his minds.
“The noblest art is that of making others happy.” -P.T. Barnum
As I always say, MONEY always not the motivator of life, Happiness does. Noblest art is that of making others happy, well said. “Happy”, such a simple words which carry a big meaning and it is not easy to achieve at all. People on earth spent days, years, centuries to seek the path to happiness, and it never being found. Because the simplest happiness always lied in front of you.
“You don’t need everyone to love you, just a few good people.” -Charity Barnum
Barnum told himself that all his life being chasing after the all the fames and praise to affirm his success. He forgot the initiate of everything. Honest speaking, being the household provider, sometime might drifted, might feels lost, lost in direction, lost in decision, but we should not forget the initial ideas, and purpose. We’re human being, we’re not Saint, we need guidance, we needs advice, and most of the time, Failures brings us back to the origin.
It been a while to watch a movie with layers, layers of thought, where we can watch the movie in different perspective, different angle, different point of views.
What a great morning kick start with a Greatest Movie.
I think most of the people know about Joker, if you watch the Batman series, you will know in the series has a bad character name Joker. Joker is some one crazy, done many crazy act against public and against Batman. For me Joker is a 100% bad people, we don’t wish to have such people around us.
But as I continue think about Joker and Batman, I keep on ask question to myself about them. Batman is a hero who always protect people from bad guys. He is rich but he use his wealth to create a lots of stuff to help people. I wish to know what will happens to Batman if all of sudden he turn into poor man, his company bankrupt and all his money just vanish into think air. Will he still move on as people’s hero?
Without the financial support, Batman still is Batman? or BADman?
Maybe I’m thinking too much recently, but the ideas come into my mind during my MSN chatting session with William (my ex-colleague). Maybe to become Batman, first we need financial support, to have all the high tech gadget~
I always think I can become someone great, someone better than now. I used to think big, I got a lots of creative ideas, funny project, and a lot of vision. I wish to can make something out of nothing. At least I think I can do better than now. There are some many obstracle in front of me, and so many thing hold me from continue moving forwards. Sometime when we wish to make something out of something, there are so many constraint which stop me, hold me back, told me that it won’t work no matter how hard I’d tried.
Just because we are not rich, low ranking, the top management will size our efforts. What ever you wish to do which is against their will/direction will be considered as dis-obey action. They stop you from thinking big/far/innovative, they just wish you to become some one like them. They just don’t wish you to be special, they will said “This is for your own good if you follow what I informed”. Actually they afraid that some one notice that you’re special, you can do better. Why we can not shows our talent to others? just because our ranking are low, not rich, no social status, no support from big power, so we need to follow what served in front of us.
Just because of that, it created Joker. The one who do not follow any rules at all. Joker does everything randomly, not follow sequence, and no procedure. Nobody know what is the next step of Joker. Joker being consider as mad man, crazy monster. Joker is bad because he killed people, he make people suffer. But, if Joker does not kills people, do not make anyone suffer, would we consider him as bad guy?
I’m poor (basically not rich), I do things randomly, I do not like to follow fixed rules, I always think crazy ideas which works, So, I consider myself as JOKER instead of Batman. Of course that I don’t kill people, I do not BOOM any building, I’m good friend of Policeman. I’m just a disobedient JOKER.
A Star is Born, there are 4 version of the movie with the same name/title at year 1937, 1954, 1976 and 2018. Throughout 70 years, everyone still loves to watch the movie so much. Why? You should be wonder why Hollywood let this happens again and again.
Clearly that everyone loves this story, a story about a Famous Celebrities with a Ingenue uprising Star. We loves to watch the journey of a ingenue, work hard, and become famous at the end, everyone loves that. As we can see other country is making the similar story again and again. Continue reading →
Golden Job 黄金兄弟, a Hong Kong Movie which re-unite the main cast of “Young & Dangerous” (古惑仔) to take part as Main Character. It been up in the cinema for quite some ago, and I didn’t manage to watch it until today.
Honestly speaking, as a movie, I consider it been shooting in very well manner, sound effect, explosion effect, and all the car chasing stunts. Well done to everyone, especially to all five main actors (they isn’t young anymore, but maybe still dangerous). Continue reading →
