    This movie is streaming on netflix if anyone wants to watch it. I watched it last night and it was pretty good (minus the annoying professor). It's about this guy that lived since the stone age. My question is, would you want to do this (if you had a choice), why or why not?

    I guess the plus side is that you get to see the world and everything inside change, evolve and grow but on the bad side, you would have to leave everyone you ever love (friends/family). I also think that death is just as necessary as life as far as personal growth and I am actually looking forward to dying because I am curious to know what it is like. I don't think I would want to live forever :o

    I loved that movie. But the ending was needlessly dramatic

    Title doesn't require a spoiler warning...you'd have to be pretty dumb not to figure out the guy was talking about himself the entire time. Besides, I didn't ruin the best part :hsd:

    pretty neat movie, interesting concept, although I found the part on religion somewhat shallow, they could have developed that argument a little bit better instead of making it so cheesy.

    watched it last night I liked it, good story, some bad acting. But, the ending was a disappointment.
