But in the end I am so thankful for each romance and relationship. I often say I put the hopeless in hopeless romantic, but I had a great time with wonderful people. I would not change one thing.
The list title "It's the Good Life" is from a Frank Sinatra song of the same name. It was either that or Harry Connick, Jr.'s "But Not For Me." Ordered by release date.
==quotes from a few of these movies ==
"I don't understand. All my life I've been waiting for someone and when I find her, she's... she's a fish." --Splash
"Can I borrow your towel for a sec? My car just hit a water buffalo." --Fletch
"The air was thin. She was average cute. She was the only girl up there. The air was thin!" --Continental Divide
Annie: "What do you believe in, then?" Crash Davis: "Well, I believe in the soul... the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days."
"And now, here I am. I'm back. In Memphis, talking to you. I have ice in my glass... And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?" --Castaway
"To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life." -- The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
Sam: Hey, have a good life. Diane: Have a good life? Sam: What? Diane: Well, that's something you say when somethings over. Sam, I'm going away for six months. That's all. So no more of this 'Have a good life' stuff. Sam: You never know. You could die, I could die, the world could end. One of us could bump our heads and wander the streets the rest of our lives with amnesia. Or maybe, one of us will decide we want something else. Diane: None of those things will happen. I'll be back here. I will. I'll see you in six months, OK? Sam: OK Diane: OK (Diane exits Cheers) Sam (watching her walk up the stairs): Have a good life.... -- Sam Malone, Cheers
I believe we are over consuming and growing globally far past a sustainable rate: this cannot continue much longer.
I see anecdotal stories and empirical data the I believe shows the days of cheap, government subsidized food is coming to an end.
Additionally I believe the Medical community does not work for the community good health, but rather for the profits of health care and drug companies.
It is important for to see these trends and insulate myself from their effects in my life.
These titles include mostly peaceful, some armed, confrontation for meaningful change. Some were successful, some failed but ALL are remembered. And remembering is most important in building up the courage for our time.
All show confrontation at particular times in history are necessary and contrast sharply to "business as usual." These are interesting to me.
"It was needed at that moment in history. And I am sure that time will come again. Just as sure as I am of that sun coming up and going down. When people are abused for so long that they only thing they can turn to is confrontational politics - they're going to do that."
- Dennis Banks, A Good Day to Die.
Media including documentaries and dramas based on actual historical events show how these events took place and how "we" were changed by them.
These are ORDERED BY HISTORICAL DATE. And yes just for fun I threw in a few that I believe are coming in the future. Thanks for visiting this list. I appreciate your comments.
These movies collected together are a tapistry of social change throughout the United States (with one title in Canada).
Often times these fights provided little benefit to those directly involved but provided GREAT benefit to all of us living in the United States today.

These are 100 Titles that capture most World religions and their positives and negative impacts on humanity. Most are documentaries; some are movies.
These are ordered by release date. I welcome ANY suggested edits to this list.
My only response is here to show the real titles people should be watching if any on this day. The ones that celebrate LABOR not the people who sought (and continue seeking) to exploit them.
