My First Blog Post

Every Movie Has A Meaning & A Message To Explore

Movies are a form of entertainment that tell a story through a series of images and sound that give the illusion of continuous movement. Doing so allows viewers to learn visually about the message each are trying to convey – often in a short period of time. Some movies are so powerful their meaning lingers, and many times it is in the smallest of details.

— Dr, Martha Hart.

Ever since I can remember I have loved watching movies and deciphering the hidden message and meaning behind them. Some movies inspire us, some make us sad or mad, and some are just good fun. I think my interest in the meaning of things comes from being a doctor in mental health. Human beings possess an innate desire to search for and find meaning. We crave to know purpose – it’s a big part of our humanism. I am also the founder of The Owen Hart Foundation and therefore I work with many individuals in-need so I am always trying to understand people in my quest to be as empathetic as I can to their struggles. As well I am the Vice President of the Monaco International Film Festival (seen below center along with MIFF founders Dean Bentley and Rosana Golden). In an effort to tie in all the aspects of my everyday life and given my love of movies I have wanted to create a purposeful yet casual movie blog for some time about cinema that has moved me or stuck in my mind for one reason or another. Not because I am a said expert in film – I’m not – but just because I love thinking about what the take-away message is in any situation and because I love discussing movies, and giving my Oscar picks… Once this blog is established I will try to do one post per week (time permitting) to explore the meaning of life through the movies we watch – so let’s get started!

  1. It was very nice to meet you last night after the movie Motherless Brooklyn. My friend and I enjoyed our conversation about the movie and Tourette’s syndrome.
    May I recommend a must see movie for you to review? I recently saw It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and it was incredible! Beyond incredible really. Life altering! I’m certain it would change your life if you saw it. I’d be so interested to read what you had to say. I know it would be deep and have a personal touch that would connect with your audience in a huge way.

  2. Hello Mrs. Hart. I just wanted to drop a comment and could not find any other way to reach you. Growing up Owen was always my favorite wrestler. When he passed I stopped watching and can’t stand the product. But I’ve always sought out any stories about him I could ever find. My situation now is I am a single father. My son is 6. His mother abandoned us for drugs and alcohol when he was a baby. I fought desperately to name him Owen, but the closest I could get the mother to agree was Evan. So I have a wonderful little boy named Evan, and he knows of Owen and that, even tho it’s not a perfect match, he was named after him. As I’ve grown older (40 now) I take inspiration from Owen in a different way. I strive to be the best father I can be. As your husband did for his 2 kids. Life is hard for us, especially now. To even get an internet connection to leave this comment was a challenge. We are on the edge of disaster. But in spite of this we are happy and always smiling. Always playing and having fun. Even tho our life is hard it is wonderful and full of joy. And I can never forget that part of the man I am today is because of the role model I had as a teenager. I have also come to understand your strength and courage as a parent, and that is also now helping and inspiring me at this difficult time. So I just wanted to say thank you. To you and your family. You have touched 2 generations of my family in such be a positive way.

  3. I keep checking back. I am so interested in knowing what movie you will review next.

    I know this blog is your venture and everything does not need to be about Owen, but also it would be cool one time to review one of Owen’s favorites and why you think it meant a lot to him.

    This is one of my favorite movie review channels.
