Cast Away

This night, I spend my time watching movie  titled "Cast Away". Tom Hanks is the main actor of this great movie. IMDB (Internet Movie Data Base) gave scoreof  7.6 (out of 10) for this movie. But I think this movie is deserved to get more. So,I my self will give 8.3 for this movie. 

This movie tells about a story of a Fedex Executive (Chuck played by Tom Hanks) who  must survive a crash landing on a deserted island. For some people, the scenes, where Chuck must survive on the island by doing monologue talking and acting, maybe make them feel boring. But I think different. I think that scenes showed me the true spirit of life. I can't imagine how a man not cracking under horrible condition like that. Alone in an island, there are no proper food to eat, clothes to use, bed for rest, or a room for protection. You never know whether wild animals will disturb you today when you sleep.

This movie is also talk about the power of hope. I believe each of us must have a hope. Hope will makes us stand when the storms come. Hope will gives us the spirit and power to get through from any problems in life.

This movie is ended by a closing statement of Chuck. I think this is a great statement to end this movie and give us a lesson to take. I quoted bellow
Cause I was never gonna get off that island. I was gonna die there, totally alone. I mean, I was gonna get sick or I was gonna get injured or something. The only choice I had, the only thing I could control...was when and how...and where that was gonna happen. So... I made a rope. And I went up to the summit to hang myself. But I had to test it, you know ? Of course. You know me. And the weight of the log... snapped the limb of the tree. So l-l- I couldn't even kill myself the way I wanted to. I had power over nothing. 
And that's when this feeling came over me like a warm blanket. I knew... somehow... that I had to stay alive. Somehow. I had to keep breathing, even though there was no reason to hope. And all my logic said that I would never see this place again. So that's what I did. I stayed alive. I kept breathing. And then one day that logic was proven all wrong, because the tide... came in, gave me a sail. And now, here I am. I'm Memphis, talking to you. I have ice in my glass. And I've lost her all over again. I'm so sad that I don't have Kelly. 
But I'm so grateful that she was with me on that island. And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing. Because tomorrow, the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring ?
