Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
A Perfect Getaway
A Perfect Getaway is a decent action thriller. A couple goes on vacation, and a serial-killing couple tries to off them. It takes a while for the action to ramp up, but that’s because the story takes its time establishing tension and drama. It’s a movie you only need to watch once (maybe twice, if you miss certain things) for reasons that become clear near the end.
I Love You, Man
It’s refreshing to see a Hollywood movie about male friendship. I Love You, Man is about a successful dude with no male friends who tries his best to make one before his wedding. Of course, he meets a guy by accident, they get along great, there’s some laughs, there’s some drama, and they end up being best buds. It’s a nice feel-good comedy romp, if that’s what you seek.
