Movies That Have Doctors

What is a hero? Is it a guy who goes around town fighting crime while wearing a mask? Do we have everyday heroes? Our society loves to focus on the bad and rarely focuses on the work of people who continuously help people day in and day out. Doctors are among some of these unsung heroes. We expect them to work on our family and friends but don’t often give them the recognition that they may deserve. While thinking about this concept, I wondered if Hollywood eve depicted doctors in a positive light. This article will look at movies that showcase the hardships and talents of those who save our lives every day. We as citizens could not be where we are today without our doctors.

In 1998 Robin Williams stared in Patch Adams. The movie is a true story based on Hunter “Patch” Adams. Once a troubled man that spent time in a mental facility, Patch changed his life around and found his calling while seeking help. He learned that he could help people with the help of humor. Upon discovering this, he vowed to become a doctor and continue to help heal people. Through his schooling he learns that the medical world does not agree with his style of helping people. The movie follows his journey and his struggles.

Have you ever wished that you could talk to your animals? Ever wonder if they know what we are talking about? In Dr. Dolittle, these questions are raised. Eddie Murphy plays Doctor Dolittle who is able to hear animals talk after he almost runs over a dog on his way home right now. We find that this is actually a repressed ability from his childhood. The movie follows the Doctor as he tries to navigate his new talents while trying to get people to believe that he is not crazy.

Dr. Jack McKee has made quiet the life for himself in the film The Doctor. The movie follows his very successful life as a doctor. Views believe that he seemingly has no problems. However, he soon finds out that he has cancer. Now it is his turn to have the patient’s perspective. He is unhappy with what he sees from the patient viewpoint and realizes that there should be more to his life than being a famed surgeon.

Taking a more romantic approach to the lives of doctors is the City of Angels. In this movie we meet Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan. Cage plays an angel that falls in love with Maggie. Maggie has a hard time believing in anything supernatural because she is a doctor and believes that she is the only one who can save people. Cage must soon learn if being an angel is more important to him rather than having a chance with Maggie.

These movies show us a different side to what we typically consider a doctor to be. A doctor can be a hero. Every day they go and try to impact someone else’s life for the better. After watching these movies you will probably have a better appreciation for what these individuals are able to achieve.

Great War Movies

So what makes a great war movie? In my opinion a great movie about the subject of war must show the nightmare that war is. Any movie that romanticizes the horror of war or tries to make the subject of war anything less than the human nightmare it is, does a disservice to the young men and women who fought in died in war and who have given their lives for the country they are fighting for.

As far as great war movies, in my opinion, no movie will ever top “Saving Private Ryan”, which came out in 1998 and was directed by Steven Spielberg. The fact that this great movie did not win best picture in 1998 and lost to the movie “Shakespeare in Love” means that at least in the year 1998, there was something very wrong with the voting process or the people who voted for best picture that year. Saving Private Ryan showed the horror of war so well that even the veterans who served during the Normandy Invasion thought that this movie showed what it was like better than anything they had ever seen before. First and foremost, the opinion of any person who had seen the horrors of war means everything to how effective a wary movie and Saving Private Ryan has forever set the bar at the highest possible mark in this regard.

I recently saw the movie “American Sniper”, which was about the war career during the IRAQ war of Chris Kyle who at 160 kills, is the all-time record holder as a sniper in the US Navy Seals. What was great about American Sniper is that it showed the psychological effects of war after the soldier returns home better than any movie I have seen in a long time. This movie has already been nominated for best picture this year and should win in my opinion mainly due to the performances and the importance of the subject matter.

A close second this year would be the movie the “Imitation Game”, which was the story of a great scientist Alan Turing, who due to his genius was able to figure out the German communication code by building a machine for Great Britain. Due to this brilliant invention, Turing and his team was able to break the German code in 2 years and according to the movie, probably shortened the war by 2 years and may have saved as many as 14 million lives. I loved this movie because it showed the importance of intelligence during a war better than anything I have ever seen and it was also a great history lesson because not only did Turing break the German code, but he also created what would be considered the first ever modern computer. Unfortunately due to the fact Turning was gay, he was not celebrated as he should have been for saving the world after World War 2, but instead was forced to take drugs to try and prevent him from being gay, which tragically lead to his suicide at age 41.
