THE GENERAL'S DAUGHTER !!

Postby yawares » Wed Aug 22, 2012 4:16 am

Dear Members,

This Wednesday YAWARES-THEATRE proudly presents "The General's Daughter" starring John Travolta, Madeleine Stowe.


http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/i ... hter+movie

The General's Daughter is a 1999 murder mystery film starring John Travolta. The plot concerns the mysterious death of the daughter of a prominent general. The movie is based on the novel by the same name written in 1992 by Nelson DeMille, and was directed by Simon West. The film was a box office success grossing $22 million in its opening weekend and $102 million in its total domestic run. Topics of interest include the integrity of junior officers in bringing justice against senior ones at great odds and at personal peril.

Buddha's Verse 17. The evil-doer suffers in this world, and he suffers in the next; he suffers in both. He suffers when he thinks of the evil he has done; he suffers more when going on the evil path.

I put this movie as 1 of the best with my other favorites of all time. The General's Daughter is thrilling and leaves you guessing until the end. I think this movie gives an accurate picture of the military. Shots of murder scenes are not anything one would have seen in a movie ten years ago, but certainly adds to the plot of this movie. All of the actors give great performances. This is a must see film!

Please recommend me 1 or 2 good movies...thanks.

Travolta is so cool :thumbsup:

Fight Club is very good, if you haven't seen it.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a lighter one, but very good also! :smile: I like the lead actor.

If you see one of these tell me your opinion, be it good or bad.
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Heaven and Earth by Oliver Stone is quite harrowing, but thought provoking.

Thanks
Yes she would like that one.
Have you got Kudun by Martin Scorsese? About the Dalai Lama, wonderful photography.
Graham[/quote]

Dear Graham,
Kundun is a 1997 epic biographical film written by Melissa Mathison and directed by Martin Scorsese. It is based on the life and writings of the 14th Dalai Lama, the exiled political and spiritual leader of Tibet....I watched it on TV once. :thumbsup:

Dear Annapurna,

Your story shocked me :shock: ..couldn't believe this terrible thing happened in public pool AND nobody nearby helped you!! :shock: ...Lucky you, you had strong mind/willpower and you escaped :thumbsup:

I'm sure this terrible man will pay back someday:

Buddha's Verse 17. The evil-doer suffers in this world, and he suffers in the next; he suffers in both. He suffers when he thinks of the evil he has done; he suffers more when going on the evil path.

Admire your courage..we girls should be tough enough to fight back!!:

Dear Yawares,

I never thought about it this way...that other kids watched and none helped me...only now that you say so!
:shock:

He was a bully and everyone was frightened of him, overweight, a bit like a Sumo ringer.

But my Dad was tall and heavy too and really frightening when he got angry! :tongue:

What I did think about was this:

If I had drowned, my parents would probably never have found out that I was murdered! They would have found me dead in the water, and my parents would have been told: Drowned!

Imagine!! It would have destroyed them. They had already lost my second brother.

What remained with me was am increased sense of caution, so they would not lose me.

Anna :hug:
