A Good Cry for the Inner Child

The very process of growing up is also one of grieving for everyone looses something in the process of going from child to adult, innocence if nothing else. I just saw a film called the Bridge to Terabithia that will provide that inner child a great chance to express or relive that grief.

This is a great movie and I heartily recommend it to anyone and everyone. It is an old movie, if you count 1985 as old, so don't watch it with the expectations of what currently is popular in the cinema these days.

I am very fascinated over the role that both media and technology plays in the shaping and reshaping of the world mind or cyber-gnosis. In fact, I have another blog that focuses on that subject. The way they marketed this movie had nothing to do with what it is really about. The movie is marketed to be in the same genre as Disney's remake of the popular C. S. Lewis classic, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Not so, for this puppy. That's OK, as what you end up seeing is much, much better.
