An entertaining humorous film with lots of modern language terms.
I particularly liked the dialogue between Will and his 'best friend' where Will's friend tells him he's sitting on the winning lottery ticket but fears collecting the winnings because of the consequences and implications.
Maybe that's why many winning lottery tickets go unclaimed - the Hunt is more interesting than the claim - (for some).
My theory is: if you are 'Gifted' as Will Hunting clearly was - your destiny has already been predetermined and mapped out for you. You have no choice and no conscious say in the matter because no matter how you try to escape, there will always be somebody somewhere Hunting you down to do better for yourself, and claim your Gifts. 'The World' Is Your Oyster' is the saying - i.e you can pick 'and' choose your destiny but which ever way you turn its green lights all the way.
If you are Talented, you have the choice to make conscious/subconscious decisions regarding your Talents and your future. Your destiny is determined by 'your' decisions. Your decision is 'your' world and 'your' oyster. You have amber lights and must proceed with caution - you can even afford to throw caution to the wind and see where the wind blows you.
If you are Skilled, you are required to do the bare minimum for yourself, but it will always 'limit' how far-reaching your destiny 'could' be. It will have a knock on effect and limit your future plans. You have red lights and will periodically have to stop, analyse and re-evaluate your life's direction and decisions.
The last 20 mins of the film seemed a little rushed or the production team ran out of time and money as much of those last 20 minutes is left to one's own imagination of 'the feel good factor' - that everything went well for Will and he made it up with his girlfriend.
It would have been nice to see/meet Will's new boss and see the smile on the girlfriend's face when Will shows up.
There's barely a hair on any scene - no glitches - no wobbles - the colour is beautiful - and as it's defaulted to 'Widescreen' so it fills the entire screen naturally (without bars top or bottom). There's English and German 5.1 DTS-HD Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital with English, English SDH - and English, Spanish, French and German subtitles.
It's also REGION A and 'B' - which means the States, the 'UK and Europe'. So British and European film fans can buy this great movie with confidence that it won't give them compatibility issues.
You also forget how good a film "Good Will Hunting" is and was (9 nominations) - a really great script by the boys full of life observations from the real Boston (won for best original screenplay), Stellan Skarsgard as the snotty obsessed Maths teacher and Robin Williams as the hurt but earthy shrink (both shining like diamonds - especially Williams who is a wow and rightly won his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor) and the lovely Minnie Driver with such a lightness of touch. Younger brother Casey Affleck as one of the boys while Matt and Ben took the world by storm - so brilliant for such a young age.

Intimate, funny and wise (in a good way) - "Good Will Hunting" still stands up. A great 'US' BLU RAY we can enjoy - and now at a dirt-cheap price. Dig in.
PS: 12 August 2014 Tuesday - cannot stand the news - Robin Williams lost to us - go the angels - you made me and my family laugh, cry and think...an appaling loss to humanity...
This is one of the most perfectly written, acted and directed films I have ever come across in my life. It has stayed with me for years now and I can't seem to and don't want to let it go any time soon. I am Will, you know. And I'm quite sure that many people around the world feel the same way. I too try desperately to find my way in society, make real friends, a girl who really loves me and I can love her back, a decent enough job no matter how hard it is. And if we feel that we possess some special skills which nobody understands, we feel isolated, alone, lonely. And sometimes angry.
I can't emphasize enough how brilliant Matt Damon is in the role his lifetime. He is even better than in Bourne, and I assume, he will never have an acting opportunity again that can live up to this role. He is mean, disturbed, feisty, yet vulnerable, loveable, sad. The dialogues are like polished diamond. The direction is quiet, suttle, beautifully balanced, simple and realistic. All the supporting cast deserves high praise, and certainly the best of them all is Robin Williams, who is simply amazing.
This is a very moving film, so much so that there are plenty occasion when we feel the urge to cry. I encourage each and everyone to do so bravely, because in the world of Good Will Hunting there's no such thing as outer nobility and dignity. These qualities come from within. A true measure of a man is how he can live day by day doing what he truly believes in. And most of all, by believing in himself. And finding love is never too late or too much trouble. And remember, what Williams's character suggests: one can't get to know life by reading books about it. You have to get out and live life while you still can. It's never too late. That was one important lesson this great film tought me. I recommend it to everyone whole heartedly.
1.Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
2.Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl.
3.Rub in the margarine or butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
4.Add the cold water to the flour mixture. Using a knife, mix the water into the flour, using your hand to firm up the mixture. The pastry should be of an even colour and suitable consistency for rolling.
5.Divide the pastry into two halves. Take one half and roll it out so that it is big enough to cover an 20cm/8in enamel or aluminium plate. Trim the edges with a knife using the edge of the plate as your guide.
6.Cover the pastry with the stewed apples and sprinkle with sugar to taste.
7.Roll out the other half of the pastry. Moisten the edge of the bottom layer of pastry and place the second piece on top.
8.Press down on the pastry edges, making sure that they are properly sealed. Trim off any excess pastry with a knife in a downward motion, again using the plate as your guide.
9.Flute the edges with a pinching action using your fingers and thumb.
10.Prick the surface of the pastry lightly before placing the pie in the oven. Cook for 20-30 minutes.
11.When the pie is cooked it should move slightly on the plate when gently shaken.
12.Slide on to a serving plate, dust with caster sugar and serve.
