      Perfect persistence

      This is a movie I saw about a month ago, and it's still fresh in my memory.
      The story begins with a courier with a butterfly print, to a package with a butterfly print when Hanks lives alone on the island, to the butterfly print at the end of the film, everything seems to be doomed. Hanks wrote "It saved my life" in his final message.
      The wonderful part is that during the years Hanks lived on the desert island, there was no food, fresh water, or even a living thing. When Hanks draws a...

      Material civilization is a good thing

      Living in the materially rich America, a busy modern man was thrown into a primitive desert island overnight, and everything has to be restarted.

      say it's an inspirational movie

      Forrest Gump has to be an inspirational film, I've never seen it and I'll tell you.

      The pursuit of Happyness is decisive and inspirational, is it possible to be compared?

      Because of sensationalism, sensational inspirational films may not be good films, and those that are not sensational have potential.

      Like The blind side, it has a slightly flat taste to this film, but it still lacks something.

      A good inspirational film must make people feel real, no...

      Great feeling after watching

      A good movie that shows the strong will and survival instinct of human beings, and inspires people in love and life.
      Some of Chuck's words and deeds when he first arrived on the desert island made people laugh, and his simple and honest expression was in the same vein as Forrest Gump.
      When he drilled for a long time and couldn't get the fire and his hands were bloodied, he threw things frantically and roared hysterically. At this time, you could really feel his helplessness and...

      plane crash lost man on desert island

      The first time I saw it was in the introduction to sociology class in college in 2002-2003. The young female lecturer who took the introduction class was taken out for observation when she talked about the relationship between people and society. Now that 2012 is coming to an end, it will be a new year 2013 in a few days. With a flick of your finger, it turns out that there has been almost ten years in the past, and the white horse has passed by. I never imagined that it could be such a...

      2001.1.15 I watched Cast Away today. A very ordinary movie. When Tom Hanks came to our school, everyone who saw him said he wasn't handsome enough. However, his acting skills are beyond reproach. He lay on the ground, looked at the picture of her inside his pocket watch, and turned the light on and off, off and on. The music started, and then my tears fell.

      The allure of living on an island, combined with the desire to survive alone, I love this movie so much that I don't care about the low probability of it happening. / 20200315, rewatched by the whole...

      A firm belief is the backbone that supports our survival. No matter where we are heading towards, we got to embrace what the world graciously gives us, because at the end of the day, the most beautiful thing in the world is, the world...

      I finally watched this cast away that I have known for ten years and existed in English textbooks for a lifetime. At that time Tom Hanks became famous. After reading it, I fell in love with the sense of existence in the city. I was lonely and it seemed so terrible. The scenery on the island was good. I really wanted to travel for various reasons. Wilson is such a lovely existence, and knowledge of survival in the wild is still very important. Implantation can't stand it, the beginning looks...

    Behind the scenes gags

    Although the story of the film takes place in 1995, the Cherokee Jeep driven by Chuck is a 1999 model.
    If Chuck’s name is abbreviated as "C", the names are linked together to be "C. Noland", and the pronunciation is "see no land".
    Contrary to public opinion, FedEx did not pay the producer a penny.

    Shooting process

    The first stop of the crew is Moscow, which is an already dramatic city. Here we will introduce Chuck’s work and life. The photographer uses a moving lens to show the rhythm of Chuck’s life. During the filming on Red Square, the crew even closed the entire square.
    After finishing a week of filming in Moscow, the crew returned to the studio in Los Angeles to shoot. In February, the whole class rushed to Fiji, and the hard work has just...

    Evaluation action

     Needless to say, the essence of "Legend of Life on a Deserted Island" is in the middle, and the beginning (before the accident) and the end (after meeting with his girlfriend) are a bit weak in comparison. But the overall film "NB" is a good comment. Not everyone has the opportunity to go rafting on a deserted island, but everyone has a deep understanding of the taste of loneliness. I never thought about it before: savages have the...
