I thought this movie was pretty well done. Both sad and funny at the same time. And it makes me want to work on my own “bucket list,” though so far I have thought mostly of places I want to go, and not so much things I want to do. But I envision my list as a living dynamic list that will change over time, and I will start something soon.
Only a couple of quotes:
- Carter Chambers: …. I can’t claim to understand the measure of a life, but I can tell you this: I know that when he died, his eyes were closed and his heart was open….
- Edward Cole: I envy people who have faith, I just can’t get my head around it.Carter Chambers: Maybe because your head’s in the way.
I liked this movie too, but wished it had included more about service to others instead of the quickly crossed-off item of doing something good for something else. That lead me to focus on the selfish aspect of the “bucket list” which was more self serving in my opinion.
That also crossed my mind…
I also wished the conversation surrounding faith (on the airplane) would have gone a bit deeper.
