      In fact, children all over the world are lonely
         . The movie "Good Will Hunting" belongs to the middle of the night, at least it belongs to a quiet moment. It allows people to follow the call from the depths of their hearts and discover a power of silence and explosion. , and was moved by the wisdom and sincerity contained in it for a long time.

      Good Will Hunting

      I encountered setbacks, my childhood was not as simple as you think, so I started to escape, started to hide myself, until one day, I entered a bar, but the music and the shouting made me withdraw from real life, then I know what I want to do, let the damn world owe us, and now pay back to ourselves one by one. Do not know you, misunderstand its meaning and try to impose changes in your life. How to open the direction of your heart, you are also afraid that others will disappoint you, you...

      The sun is like me - let the sun stay in the heart

      Will is a genius. He didn't go to college, but he could easily figure out that it took two years for MIT math professor Rambo (a Fields Medal winner, the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in mathematics). Mathematical problems that he can only solve, but Will doesn't know how to cherish his talent. He drinks and clubs all day long, fights and causes trouble, becoming a "problem youth" in the eyes of many people. During a fight, Will faces the risk of being arrested, and Professor Rambo bothers to...

      Better late than never

      The Chinese translation of this film, like the title of the book "The Happiest Place in the World", has always scare me away, and the soul is also a catcher. It always makes people think that it is an inspirational magic weapon like chicken soup for the soul. However, because I just discovered the story of the good friends of Matt Dummy and Stupid Affleck, I decided to take a look at this masterpiece that the two collaborated on.

      The relationship between the characters reminds me of...

      I admit that I have never been through vicissitudes



          The greatest comedian in my mind, Robin Williams, has passed away. In fact, his status in my mind came not from his comedy performances, but from his drama performances. As a comedian, he is not the most outstanding on the big stage of Hollywood, at least we can list such as Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler and many others who are not related to him. Comedy masters up and down. But when it comes to the comedian's transformation into a serious drama, he has never...

      I boiled a big pot of chicken soup and turned out to be disgusting. I really didn't expect it to be so ugly. I almost fell asleep several times during the whole process. I woke up and found that the characters in it were still thinking about it. Although they are all familiar faces, what do you want to talk about together? Forgive me for being stupid, only the end of Ben's knocking on the door of my friend Matt's house echoed the front, and the rest of the chirping lines and the genius boy who...

      Library 2013.3.7.7pm The level of three stars, due to disappointment, dropped one more star. This film is dedicated to the Black Fields Medal and mathematics, it is more likely to black the entire academic world. An orphan drunk and moved to pick up girls every day, and reached a postgraduate level in history, law, art history, psychology, chemistry, mathematics and many other fields. Just add this setting and the end to spray blood. The value orientation with "family" as the core. The play...

      Matt Damon is this kind of man: No matter how brilliant the mathematical equations are solved, and no matter how genius and unruly, I always want to throw him a baseball uniform and football uniform, and then in the next second, he will appear on the...

      We who say that others are geniuses may call them geniuses because they know a lot of knowledge that we don't understand. Will in "Mind Catcher" is such a genius. His interest in mathematics is like how I feel about movies, because I love it, so I know more! Of course! I am better than Will in that I don't need to see a psychologist; but what is better in Will than me is that there are many more people who call him a genius than me!...

      Comparable to "Spring Wind and Rain". The same was taken in Boston. About 1 hour and 15 minutes, the professor and the doctor argued whether or not the genius should choose a period of his life, which was particularly shocking. At the end of the movie, an assembled broken car drove west on the vast highway of New England. I was immersed in the meantime, calmed down, and finally saw a tribute to Alan...

    Movie plot

    A mathematics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology wrote a question that he found very difficult on the bulletin board of his department, hoping that his outstanding students could solve the answer, but no one could solve it. As a result, when Will, a young cleaner, was cleaning after class, he found this math problem and easily solved the problem. 
    Will was extremely clever but rebellious, even fighting and making...

    Behind the scenes gags

    1. Director Gus Van Sant once asked Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to rewrite the script so that Chuck, played by Ben, died in a construction accident. Damon and Affleck were reluctant, but they rewrote the script. After reading it, Van Sant admitted that it was a terrible idea. 
    2. The picture hanging in Professor Sann’s office was painted by director Gus Van Sant. 
    3. Sonn and Will are in the office. When Sonn talked about some funny...

    Positive Reviews of

    "As an educational and inspirational subject, Sonn’s methods are not disgustingly persuasive, nor aggressive persuasion and preaching. His greatest charm lies in the way that silence and explosion go hand in hand to let young and frivolous guys wantonly slander. Others suddenly discover their own stupidity in an instant, and when they are trying to use their huge reserves of knowledge to attack others, they understand that their...

    Movie quotes

    • Sean: [to Will] You'll have bad times, but it'll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren't paying attention to.

    • Lambeau: [in a gentlemen's bar, attempting to prove to Sean that his interest in Will is not about fame] Tim, can you help us? We're trying to settle a bet.

      Tim: Uh-oh.

      Lambeau: Ever heard of Jonas Salk?

      Tim: Sure, cured polio.

      Lambeau: And you've heard of Albert Einstein?

      [Tim laughs]

      Lambeau: How about Gerald Lambeau? Ever heard of him?

      Tim: No.

      Lambeau: Thank you, Tim.

      Tim: So, who won the bet?

      Lambeau: I did.

      [Tim walks off]

      Lambeau: This isn't about me, Sean. I'm nothing compared to this young man.

    • Chuckie: [in a bar] Are we gonna have a problem here?

      Clark: No, no, no, no! There's no problem here. I was just hoping you might give me some insight into the evolution of the market economy in the southern colonies. My contention is that prior to the Revolutionary War, the economic modalities, especially in the southern colonies, could be most aptly described as agrarian pre-capitalist.

      Will: Of course that's your contention. You're a first-year grad student; you just got finished reading some Marxian historian, Pete Garrison probably. You're gonna be convinced of that 'till next month when you get to James Lemon. Then you're going to be talking about how the economies of Virginia and Pennsylvania were entrepreneurial and capitalist way back in 1740. That's gonna last until next year; you're gonna be in here regurgitating Gordon Wood, talkin' about, you know, the pre-revolutionary utopia and the capital-forming effects of military mobilization.

      Clark: Well, as a matter of fact, I won't, because Wood drastically underestimates the impact of social...

      Will: "Wood drastically underestimates the impact of social distinctions predicated upon wealth, especially inherited wealth"? You got that from Vickers' "Work in Essex County," page 98, right? Yeah, I read that too. Were you gonna plagiarize the whole thing for us? Do you have any thoughts of your own on this matter? Or do you, is that your thing, you come into a bar, read some obscure passage and then pretend - you pawn it off as your own, as your own idea just to impress some girls, embarrass my friend?

      Will: See, the sad thing about a guy like you is, in 50 years you're gonna start doin' some thinkin' on your own and you're going to come up with the fact that there are two certainties in life: one, don't do that, and two, you dropped 150 grand on a fuckin' education you could have got for a dollar fifty in late charges at the public library!

      Clark: Yeah, but I will have a degree. And you'll be servin' my kids fries at a drive-thru on our way to a skiing trip.

      Will: Yeah, maybe. But at least I won't be unoriginal.
