    May 24 2011: When I saw this topic, I couldn't help but think of the movie, Avatar. A lot of people got depressed after seeing the movie because they realized it wasnt a reality and they could never experience that world. I think that is a prime example of what a good film can do.
    • Jun 13 2011: I think there is a positive message there in the movie "Avatar". I love that movie. Whatever reality that we experience, see and realize now are causes from the minds of people, eg if wars come from the minds of people, then peace is possible too by altering the minds of people. Just my 2cent worth thoughts, not intended to be offensive. :)
