    Reel Wisdom: Lessons from 40 Films in 7 Minutes

    From the source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8CaC4RMwsM&feature=player_embedded#at=101

    Some of the famous lines:

    • “If  you want something, go get it. period.
    • “”You don’t just live in life,  you change it, you make your mark upon it.”
    • “Never look back, it  distracts you from the now.”
    • “Regrets are a waste of time.”

    From the Author: Superluminal805

    I made this video because I love films and I think there is great wisdom inherent in the film medium. This video represents some of the best film wisdom I could find, edited together as a single, coherent piece of advice.

    In creating this video, I wanted to focus on a few key themes, while featuring as many films as I could. As a result, Reel Wisdom features a broad array of films, from action/adventure and sci-fi films, to dramas and traditional/CG animated films in order to show how all genres of film have something important to say.

    There are a lot of Star Wars lines, I know. I included those mainly because I grew up watching Star Wars, and I love all the great lessons found in the films. And obviously, I couldn’t make a video with all the wisdom from films, because it would be really long and rather incoherent. This video contains wisdom from only 40 films in a world where hundreds of films are made every year. Sorry if your favorites didn’t make it. But send me a message and maybe I’ll include them in Reel Wisdom: Part 2…

    Pirates of Silicon Valley
    Swimming with Sharks
    The Matrix
