    great idea about this topic. many thanks.

    I didn't see to many, but "Inside i'm dancing" [imdb] is a good one. It's not about sci, but it's about being a wheelchair user as a hi-quad.

    A Norwegian movie about group therapy for disable people so they should think positive. The movie is called "Kunsten å tenke negativt"( the art of thinking negative). Two people with SCI, one para and one quad, one after a stroke and one with psycic problems. It is real funny, it is sad you don't understand what they say

    Favorite and sci don't necessarily go together for me but these are all pretty good movies..

    1. Million Dollar Baby (Hillary's second Oscar)
    2. The Men (made in 1950, Marlon Brando, amazingly relevant imo)
    3. The Diving Bell and The Butterfly. (Not necessarily sci but essentially the same physical challenges as a high quad)
    4. Rear Window (CR remake)
    5. Bone Collector (Denzel and Angelina)
    6. Passion Fish
    7. Murder Ball
    8. Coming Home
    9. The Sea Inside
    10. Monkey Shines
    11. Gattaca

    Onward and upward.

    As far as TV shows go I kinda like Brothers, it portrays a SCI guy as just a average crazy type of guy in which people dont really seem to focus at all on his disability. Shows like this can only help out pwd.

    As far as movies go, my fav was Coming home. It did a lot of good for the image of disabled people just functioning as regular people in society.

    The Waterdance was really good too, it was kinda freaky how much it reminded me of my rehab when I was SCI'd in 1981.

    Chris;
    Too funny your #10 Monkey Shines. Beware people this is a scary movie. I tried to describe the plot to my son and he asked me if I had been having a nightmare or too many glasses of Chablis. I had to look up the credits on the INTERNET to prove it was a real movie.

    I just came across The Rear Window with Christopher Reeves today.Not a really good movies imo,but I just didn't realize he did anything after his injury.It was pretty sad seeing him talking about the cure & all though.
