Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Some movies can move you. Many movies can make you think. And a few movies can make you feel human. Very few movies can do all three and then some. But one of those movies is an oldie but a goodie, called “The Bucket List” starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.

The Bucket List movies posterSome movies can move you. Many movies can make you think. And a few movies can make you feel human. Very few movies can do all three and then some. But one of those movies is an oldie but a goodie, called “The Bucket List” starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.

The movie pairs these two wonderful actors as two wonderful elderly men, stuck in terminal mode as they are both diagnosed with various life threatening cancers. One is incredibly wealthy and the other is incredibly wise. Both would never have met each other but for the fact that they are both stuck in a hospital room together and both given the prognosis of a death.

Sounds kind of boring huh? But it isn’t. The movie explores the idea that if you could know the exact moment of your demise, what would you want to do? That list of things to do before your last breath is known as “The Bucket List”.

The movie exposes the sad fact that so many of us go through life without really living. We don’t do the things we want to do. We put up with the things we should not. We stay angry at those people whom we should forgive. We carry those old scars, hurts and all of our old baggage from the past with us, no matter how heavy that baggage weighs on our shoulders.

If you have not seen this movie, I encourage you to partake. At the least it will make you think and realize that one day you will not be around any longer. So what’s on your Bucket List?
