MOVIE:The Impossible- My Thoughts

Today is slightly different to my normal posts but I have literally just walked in the door from the cinema. I saw the new(ish) movie 'The Impossible'. It surrounds the true story of a family who were holidaying in Thailand when the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami hit back in 2004. The family gets split up and they're all basically looking for each other. It's not quite as straight forward as that but you get the general drift.

I wrote a post back in August of 2012 about how I was affected by The Batman movie which you can read here. Well basically the same thing happened only worse. 
I found the movie unbearably hard to watch, now don't get me wrong the movie is amazing but there is no way I will watch it again. The pure devastation of the horrible disaster was recreated so well that you'd swear you were watching a documentary.
The terror of the families, the sadness of ones who were searching for loved one, the many body bags which included tiny little baby size bags... 

I cried throughout the entire movie and I wasn't alone, I could hear sniffing throughout the entire screen and to say the cinema was quiet.. I have never heard a quieter cinema screen in my life, no one spoke a word throughout the movie and we all left pretty much in silence when it was over. 

The movie is so powerful but I have never felt so upset about a movie and I'm not sure I like this feeling.

I want to give back to world. I feel as a human being who has lived such an easy life compared to a lot of people I need to help. I don't know how I will do it yet or what I will do but in some way I need to do my part as a human being. I will of course let you know what that it is when I figure it out for myself..

So as you can gather 'Th Impossible' had a huge impact on me and I would erge you all to go and see it, watch it online, rent it on DVD just see it. 

I do apologise if none of this makes that much sense as I said I am only just in the door with all these emotions and thoughts that I had write them down(Get a diary Alice!) 

Until next time,
I hope you're all well and I'll talk to you soon,
