Top Ten Movies I Can Watch Again And Again

One positive watching movies is selected movies each person can watch again and again. These movies we watch infinitely connect with us. We calm down. We laugh. We reflect. We learn. We discover. There is something in the movie we relate in real life. Been there, done that. We are always 100% satisfied watching the movie from beginning to end or watching selected scenes.

Grease (1978) is one movie I can watch again and again. The movie cheers me up when I'm depressed. I like the music. I pictured myself attending high school in the late 1950s during one movie watch. If I have children, then I'm comfortable they can watch Grease with no worries. I consider Grease a family movie.

Here are the top ten movies I can watch again and again:

10. The Dark Knight (2008). The movie was all Heath Ledger. If I name my favorite evil character, Heath Ledger's Joker comes to my mind first.

9. For Your Eyes Only (1981). My personal all-time favorite Bond movie. It was the first Bond movie I watched. Humor, action, gadgets, car chase, and a great opening Bond scene.

8. Hot Fuzz (2007). I remember watching the first 15 minutes at a friend's house. We all laughed our asses. I exited the house because there was another commitment. I watched the movie for the second time from start to finish at the end of the year. I like movies which go full circle.

7. Beverly Hills Cop (1984). Eddie Murphy's breakout movie. No green screen special effects for the action and comedy movie classic.

6. Wall Street (1987). The movie about Bud Fox who wanted to be Gordon Gekko realized he was just Bud Fox. Most of the movie regarding business is true today.

5. E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982). I wish I was more like Elliott when I was a child. He had more courage and more attractiveness towards girls. E.T. was the first movie I watched in an outdoor movie theater decades later.

4. Star Wars IV (1977). I was a child who smiled at every battle scene and every special effect. I didn't understand the plot. My favorite scene is Obi-Wan gave Luke his first lesson in The Force inside the Millennium Falcon.

3. Stand By Me (1986). Four boys took a journey to find the body of a missing boy before they begin junior high school. It was my first coming-of-age movie. I include Breaking Away (1979) in number #3 because it's another good coming-of-age movie.

2. Saving Private Ryan (1998). My personal all-time favorite war movie. The movie should have won best picture instead of Shakespeare In Love.

Honorable mentions: Aliens, Clerks, The Princess Bride, and Toy Story.

1. Good Will Hunting (1997). I watched the movie for the first time in 2014. It's another movie I watch when I feel depressed. I tell myself I'm a good Raymond Mar sincerely. My all time favorite ending and end credits. I like the tagline: Some people can never believe in themselves, until someone believes in them.

Two Personal Vows

I give myself two vows. The first vow is controlling my money. The second vow is controlling stress.

"Money is the root of all evil" is a common life quote. I vow my life is not controlled by money. I never worry about money. I live a life minimizing splurges. My splurge rule is wait 24 hours for splurging goods and services below $100 or wait 48 hours for splurging goods and services $100 and greater. I never hoard. Useless goods are sold on eBay or given away for free. I take advantage of sales. I'm patient waiting for sales on most goods and services. I shop around and research online to find the lowest price. I follow my money lifestyle whether I have $1 or $1,000,000 in my bank account. I'm the same Raymond Mar whether I have $1 or $1,000,000 in my bank account.

We're human beings. Humans absorb a certain amount of stress. Stress levels above a human being's tolerance changes himself or herself. Uncontrolled stress changes people in a negative way. I vow I control my stress for which stress doesn't control my life. Stress doesn't change my life. I have experienced people changed because of stress. I have been told stories people changed because of stress. Stressed people gain weight. Stressed people experience health problems. Stressed people lose their patience. Stressed people express their frustrations to other people. Stressed people are hard to communicate. Stressed people are hard to socialize with other people. Stressed people are unattractive. Stressed people become lost.

I control my stress eating healthy foods. I cook healthy meals. I minimize eating junk food and processed food. I eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. Also, I sleep eight hours a night. Sleep rests my body, my mind, and my soul. I workout at the gym four or five days a week. I listen to music such as classical music when I eat breakfast and ambient sleep music when I sleep. The Beatles is a great band to listen when I'm stressed. And I create a circle of friends to spend time socializing soon. I'm looking for a circle of intelligent, mature, outgoing, and professional friends.

It's A Lonely World

I dedicate today's blog to all the lonely people. Are you lonely? So am I. I have experience more than my share feeling lonely. The feeling is bad. No description can be clearer. Loneliness is bad.

The best way the fight loneliness is be active. Attract people. Luck is a factor. Never rely 100% on luck to meet new people and make new friends. A person's actions, behavior, and knowledge are more important factors. Be a good person. Good people come to you. If loneliness is a problem taking over your life, then you may need professional help.

I have strength. I have courage. I have been active. I'm unemployed. I live with my parents. I move forward living with the two life hindrances. I job search two times a day every weekday. I workout at the gym four or five days a week. I read books. I learn new job skills such as Python and JavaScript. I review existing job skills such as Excel and SQL. I play board games. I hike. I cook meals. I open myself to experience new experiences.

Lonely people are looking for friends. Lonely people are looking for soul mates. Lonely people are looking for lovers. Don't give up finding people. I'm not giving up. I hate being lonely. Maybe I find you.

Time is the ultimate judge. I trust myself what I'm doing today helps me meet new people tomorrow. Get up and do something, anything.

The Best

Humans want to be the best. We want a good life. We want to be successful. Humans every day have a feeling something good happens. I have a date with the person I like. I won the sweepstakes. The company I interviewed sends me a job offer. He said yes. She said yes. I got accepted. We won the contract. The analysis supported our facts. It came true. The best is yet to come.

Why do we feel the best comes soon? My answer is obvious: everyone wants the best. We do anything hoping, praying, wishing, working, and believing for the best. How do we achieve the best? My answer is everything from small to large and from logical to stupidity. Good luck charms. Rituals. Perfect practice. Drills. Routines. Working intelligently. We need a little luck and fortunate timing. We do everything for the best.

I don't sit on a sofa watching television eight hours a day. I stay active. I'm learning Python and CSS currently. I workout at the gym four to five days a week. I keep the house clean. I cook meals. I rarely eat out. I read books. I job search weekdays two times a day. I seek new adventures. I experience new experiences. I need a little luck and fortunate timing. I have a feeling the best comes soon.
