Default Castaway

Ok, I know it's an older movie. But it was just on HBO, and I hadnt seen it in years.

Here's the thing about Castaway. Yeah it's sad, when he finally gets rescued only to find out he lost the woman of his dreams, but....and it's a big but.....there is a great message in that movie for folks who are either currently,or have been suicidal like me.

Simply, you have to keep breathing. Cause you never know what the tide will bring.
I am just a simple man who loves God, my wife, my children and my drums.

Default I agree - wonderful movie.

That's one of my FAVORITE movies. Especially that scene.

Parts of it make me cry, especially looking back at the island. And when he and his girlfriend say goodbye.

I watched it when I made a big step in my life and had to leave a lot of things behind. It gave me hope at the end, when he was at the crossroads and could go anywhere in the world that he wanted to.

I have the DVD so I can watch it whenever I want.

I cried like a baby when he lost Wilson! And then I couldn't stop laughing at myself for crying at a football ... powerful movie if a scene like that can bring you to tears!

I didn't like the end though, I was expecting something much happier and it kinda saddened me. To me the message was "life is a struggle, and in the end you always end up back where you started, alone"
