Hello everyone, we’re back after a long hiatus for blogs, and on the first combined TV Thursdays and Futuristic Fridays of the year, I am going to delve into one of the questions I have had on my mind for a while, using TV shows and movies as examples as I coherently let my thoughts be known. What has often made me curious is what makes us human. Sure all of us have breath and can feel, have emotions, and can love each other, but animals have that too, so what sets us apart?
There comes a point in time when we mustn’t worry about what our own futures, and the future of the world will be like. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t wonder every once in a while and dream about what we’d like to do within a certain time frame, but we must realise that rarely, and I mean rarely, do things ever go to plan. You plan for something, and then life takes you on a detour and you experience something else. You think your life is going to be picture A but then it turns out to be picture B. You start to realise that sometimes thinking about the future can seem futile- because really, why should you plan if things aren’t going to go the way we think?
Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens, which is posting every Sunday, Australian time. Last week I shared my top 10 worship artists, and every week I will continue to share my ‘top ten ____’ (totally subjective by the way!), give a brief reason (whether the reasons are logical or illogical is another story!), and once again I will open the forum and discussion to all of you!
Today we’ll be talking about top 10 movie trilogies/franchises, and why these 30 movies (or more) are either sentimental for personal reasons or just because it’s part of popular culture and to not watch them would be criminal (nah, not really, but seriously, I think you should watch these 10 trilogies below, they are all pretty awesome, for one reason or another!) So without further ado… here are my top 10 movie trilogies (in reverse order).
Wondering about the future can be such a scary thing. What will happen in 10 years, 20 or even 50? Would DVD’s still be in circulation, would Coles, Woolworths, even companies like Coca Cola, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Twitter or Disney be multinational global powerhouses, or will another company rise up to the challenge and step in? Will the United States of America still be the country that everyone looks towards for comfort, entertainment, news and security, or will another country, like China or India rise up and take their place? These are legitimate questions, and ought to be asked- by myself, and hopefully others, as we look towards our own personal futures, and the futures of our home countries, and the world, in years and decades to come.
