Movies on poor people left out

In major cities we see, in alleys, Chinatowns, freight trains, rail yards, under bridges and all that, homeless people have been the same since they lost everything. They’ve been the same since they did. No home, no address, no cash or any of what people had. And sometimes, like what Mel Brooks said, ‘Life Stinks!’.

He thought of that when he was poor in a movie. But as always, ‘Life is a box of chocolates. You’ll never know what you’re gonna get’. Sally Field that in “Forrest Gump” in true most spoken words we all should know. And, ‘Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it’. Matthew Broderick said that too in his most true spoken words in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. That we’ll never forget. Everyone should know that, even when they are poor. And helping them out to make their lives better is another way. That way they’ll start a new life again. Becoming wealthy once more. And I’ve seen and heard all that in movies I know of.

In movies like the opening scene of “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines”, “Everyone’s Hero”, and a “Catscratch” episode by Nickelodeon, they have been finding jobs a bit like construction working, as they have been mostly riding on freight trains. That way they’ll get away from a major city and start a new life. The Three Stooges were like that when they were sleeping in a boxcar one time. Like a Bugs Bunny cartoon I saw, you don’t want to be caught by the train conductor. That way, you’ll be in trouble when you do. As long your not on the famous train from Chattanooga.

Not only in “Grave of the Fireflies” showed on how the Japanese civilians lost everything in final days of WWII in Japan when they were poor, and how Mel Brooks faced on how ‘Life Stinks!’, “The Pursuit of Happiness” was one movie like that. Will Smith and his young son Jaden were in it. When a father lost his home, he and his son were lost in the streets finding a place to live and start again. He was sad at that moment, as he was glad, things went well after that. He started his multimillionaire buisness and was never poor again.

“The Boxcar Children” was like Jaden Smith in that movie, as this showed homeless kids. In this very first computer animated movie, based on the book by Gertrude Chandler Warner. About how four kids, two boys and two girls, ran away from an orphanage as they found a new home in a abandoned boxcar. Poor and nothing they have, they felt like if the boxcar was their new home. When an old man found them, it was their grandfather that knew these kids. He felt sorry for the way their parents died a long time ago. So he took them home and we’re happy again.

“Drillbit Taylor”, an Owen Wilson movie was like all this only funny. A homeless war veteran had been living in the streets since his time in a war once, as three boys needed a bodyguard. Because of trouble at school, they were being pushed around by two bullies. One of them was played by Josh Peck before “Red Dawn” in 2012, with Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and Connor Cruise. He fought hard stopped everything. The hilarious part was when he lost his pinkie finger and got crushed by a car. He was sent to jail after that was let out in the end. Danny McBride as a bad homeless guy was sent to jail too. Due to robbing things from houses. Drillbit found a love later and started a new life in the end.

Finally, “Hobo With A Shotgun”. Very violent movie. Not like the rest here, but good. Didn’t had a good ending, but a sacrifice was shown in the end. Homeless people like the hobo, left out in the streets began a revolt against a irresponsible crime boss and his army of criminals wearing massive armor. Since the hobo had taken a 20 gauge shotgun, giving his sons and criminals death wishes, they were with this man as charged up against the irresponsible crime boss. A massive gunfight with carnage and a bloodbath was big, when the hobo killed the boss. The police force killed the hobo, as they were shot to death to death by the homeless people. 

So homeless people need a second chance to be wealthy again, so they can start a new life again. They need much help as much as we do. Even at Christmas time when we help them and give them the Christmas spirit. By giving them food and much of that. 

So life cannot stink if you are poor or wealthy as long as it’s a box of chocolates. You may never know what you’re gonna get. And we don’t do revolting like that massacre hobo movie.

    Couldn’t agree more with your comments that homeless people need a second chance. Of course, we can’t forget the saying ‘life is like a box of chocolates’! Thanks for sharing that important message.
