Peaceful Warrior - 2007

Category: Movies

Genre: Non-Fiction, Based on a True Story

Director: Victor Salva

Writer: Kevin Berndhart, Dan Millman

Genre: Drama, Sport,

Tagline: There are No Ordinary Moments

Overview and Review of the movie Peaceful Warrior

This is based on a book "The Way of a Peaceful Warrior". It is about a young overachiever in gymnastics named Dan Millman who met a stranger at night in a gasoline station whom he named as "Socrates".

It is great for them to come up with this memorable movie of a lifetime. With great many aphorism and lessons to learn such as living in the moment, and more.

Very very inspiring. I could gush over this movie the whole day!! I actually watched it.. mhmmm around 10 times already? That's how great the movie is!

This is a no nonsense film... but a wonderful film that could inspire you to stay in the present moment! :)

Memorable Quotes:

Socrates: A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does

Dan Millman: The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination
Dan Millman: The ones who are hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most.
Dan Millman: A warrior is not about perfection or victory or invulnerability. He's about absolute vulnerability.

Mirrors - 2008

Category: Movie

Genre: Horror

Director: Alexandre Aja

Writer: Alexandre Aja

Tagline: There Is Evil........On The Other Side

Cast: Keifer Sutherland, Paula Patton, Cameron Boyce, Erica Gluck,

Overview and Review of the movie Mirrors.

I think this is a remake of a Korean horror film.

It is a story of an NYPD guy named Ben Carson that picks up a job as a night-watchman in what was left over the burned down Mayflower Department Store. Kinda eerie and weird.. but, hey it went A-OK. There were a lot of disturbing images and for the sensitive types you might not want to see any mirrors for a week.

I loved it cause it starred Keifer Sutherland. :P

If you want something creepy and something to weird you.. its good company.

A Woman's Worth - Marianne Williamson

Category: Books

Genre: Self-Help / Feminism / Spirituality

Author: Marianne Williamson

This is a review and summary of the book A Woman's Worth by Marianne Williamson

One of the female authors in the world of "self-help" that I adore is Marianne Williamson. Her books changed the way I view the world, love, life, and women. Her words really ring true and I admire the way she writes.... If only I could write like her. *swoons*

This book is a call to all the women of the world and the lovers of women. :) This honors all types of women and what we bring to the world in our own way. What we thought was weak is honored in this book. Absolutely one of the books i recommend women read. :)
