favorite movies:

here is a list of my top-40-favorite-movies! (just for fun and in no particular order)….(hey kids, please get parents permission and\or check ratings on each new movie, perhaps it is best to watch “made for T.V. versions” or watch with a friend who knows the funny parts, the scary parts, and the parts that bring out our emotions… ..after all, “learning” – “entertainment” – and “fun” is actually what movies are supposed to be all about!)  —check out scores at rottentomatoes.com

  1. Why do we sometimes wrap ourselves up in movie culture? I think because we sometimes need to escape some of the needless and sometimes shameless segments of our society… ..for instance the best healthcare plan is to simply not have any (instead of trying to build a wrongful industry out of it, for instance)… ..also it seems our society is sometimes wrongfully borrowing a page out of George Orwells acclaimed novel ‘1984’ (to suggest we are a bunch of robots and efficiency is somehow king instead of basic human character, essence, and spirit… ..for example: we must have a grammar school ideological level of unemployment at about eight percent instead of recognizing the much more correct “good guys ideology” that says: “unemployment should actually be at about eighty percent in a correctly designed city, with most of us enjoying various features in cities and really only requiring a twenty percent workforce in order to continue basic maintenance, services, and upgrades”)… ..also, what is up with shameless commercial programming content? I had already mentioned the best healthcare plan is simply not to have one, some of these really wrong pharmaceutical commercials are just wildly out of control… ..we are human, we are mortal, get on with it… ..So, I don’t know the difference in details of various problems or complaints that we may have separately as individuals, but I do know, however, the nature of the problems we are all facing is probably the same,,, ,,and if we can simply flip the nature of situations (towards the good guys, so to speak) then we might just solve all of our collective issues, once and for all and at same time simultaneously,,, ,,obviously hopefully obviously! -Tarek

  2. ***please get the “crappy shameless” medical and pharmaceutical commercials off of the television cable service!, once and for all..! (please, to only have good content programs and good content “normal commercials” only!, please and thank you!)

    Is there a way to get the YouTube application back on large screen samsung? or at least a way to upload a simple browser.. …the more the power is taken out of the cable companies hands and delivered straight to consumers in simplistic nature, obviously the better!

    [it is a call for society to reach “better maturities” and to supply good quality and easy access for sake of supplying various good quality and easy access …in all the aspects of life, well duh,, ,,,obviously dude] 😉

  3. I thought to leave a little bit of an “upbeat and positive” message: In addition to movies, playing sports and working out… ..I also like video games! Of course there are many different video games, and many different types of video games such as: side-scrollers, maze-crawlers, and vector-arcades,, ,,,there are also arcade-brawlers… ..and this link to “top ten arcade brawlers” by ShackNews, seems to be pretty accurate in my opinion:
