Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge

What a movie!! Very inspiring and had some real good humour. Spoiler Alert!!

I recently watched this movie and it had quite the impact on me, I must say. So good I had to write about it. I got many things from that movie that I can make use of in my growth in life, and that I’d like to share.

First of all I felt that it was about faith, in the sense that if you truly believe in something stand for what you believe in. It demonstrated conviction(which is in a way a little like being insane if you ask me), and how it makes one unstoppable, passing all obstacles to reach the goal. Magic happens when you don’t give up, even when you want to. The universe always falls in love with a stubborn heart. I also felt the movie was about the realities of war, and being anti-war it really appealed to me. The way young men are drafted to go fight wars that in reality is a business; one that costs human life. And all so a few individuals can have deeper pockets, lined with the blood of innocent men. How after the war a soldier’s life is never the same again, they are scarred for life. Doss snr. lost his friends, became an alcoholic and began beating his wife. That war damages the psyche of many a soldier is quite evident in the world today. Also, choose your partner well. That’s self-explanatory.

Here are some of my favourite quotes from this fantastic film.

 

“I don’t know how I’m going to live with myself if I don’t stay true to what I believe.”

“In peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons.”

“Most of these men don’t believe the same way you do, but they believe so much in how much you believe.”

“Sgt Howell: I have seen stalks of corn with better physiques. Makes me want to pull an ear off, Private! Can you carry your weight?

Desmond Doss: Yes, Sergeant!

Sgt Howell: It should be easy for you then. Corporal!

Corporal Jessop: Sergeant.

Sgt Howell: Make sure you keep this man away from strong winds.” XD

 

If you haven’t watched this movie and can stand bloody war scenes(felt so real), please watch it, you won’t regret.

Moving forward,

Not even sure where forward was anymore,

Not without a sense of direction

The mirages had disoriented him.

at this point his legs moved on their own accord,

anything just to keep moving.

Even adrift,

he would eventually get somewhere,

hopefully alive,

and get a helping hand

or lose himself even more

and drown in this sea of sand.

 

Hearrt-break Re-biirth

 

In a moment of weakness

I let my guard down

And she took advantage of me

Advantage of a past love

One with which I couldn’t cope.

For me it was a certainty

That there would be no forgiveness

That this fairy tale

Had an unlikely anti-climax

And yet you say

Despite my doubts,

Despite my mistakes,

Despite… yourself,

You still love me,

Does that mean,

I can dare to dream

I can dare to hope

That we may bury this hatchet

That our story

May still have

A happy ending?
