Here are some of my movie reviews(Hollywood Movies) http://exploretheworld.hubpages.com/
What the #$*! Do We (K)now!? (2004)
Will be criticized as well as appreciated
As for me, this is a really good documentary and as some negative reviews pointed out skeptically, it DID leave a positive impact on me. But that was not the only thing that it did as they also said. I come from India where science and spiritualism have been deep rooted and our mythological Gods have long performed miraculous acts which were once frowned upon as only myths. We have hundreds and hundreds of tales describing the miracles that the old sages performed by meditating for long spans of time and being gifted to do particular things. Today, the world is slowly knowing the power of Yoga and Pranayama for improving life and health in general. We here strongly believe in the power of thoughts and the importance of subconscious and its connection to the physical world. I believe that we know very less about our existence and this documentary did quite a good job in giving a new perspective. Yes there was no factual data that it provided or there were no surveys conducted to prove the notion, but why do we always need quantitative proof for getting a point proved. and how many of us are really expert enough to comment.
The only flip side of the documentary is however too much information to think over. If you are a general movie watcher, this is not an entertainer but a work put together by scholars as to what they think reality is. It is slow and methodical. It is for those who want to know and think things that are not part of our everyday table conversations. It gives us less information and more "to do" and I guess thats what has aroused all the skeptics about its credibility. With all due respects of course, it is just a matter of their choice whether to believe on the power of our minds and the extent to which it can be stretched.
