Treeless Mountain

I’m in love with this movie. What is about? Read the IMDB plot summary below. It’s also about hanging on to the past, letting go of the past, and the resilience of the human heart.

You’re not into that kind of thing? Fine, go watch Hot Tub Time Machine. Come on, you’re better than that.

Rating: 5 stars

The stories coming out of this South Korea ferry disaster are wrecking me . . . I say that as someone who normally finds death interesting, especially on a large scale.

Mother

We rented Mother from Netflix. As I explained to my family before screening it, the movie’s about a crazy Asian woman and her devotion to her mentally challenged son.

“You can see why it resonated with me,” I said. “It’s like someone made a movie about our lives!”

“You are not a nice person,” my wife said. “Our boy is not crazy.”

“No, you’re crazy,” the boy corrected her. “I’m mentally challenged.”

That said, I enjoyed the movie, although it contains a lot of profanity, which I don’t like.

Mother (2009)

The Beauty of Cultural Diversity

My son’s one-eighth Japanese on his mom’s side and the student body at his school is about 40 percent Korean, so when he comes into my room yelling, “YES! I am going to shove it” — punctuated with a fist pump — “at those Koreans tomorrow,” it doesn’t take long to figure out that Japan must have won the World Baseball Classic . . .
