Spare parts!


I just finished watching the American movie Spare Parts, and i have to say i really liked it. It is a film which brings up several topics that are very important. The movie is about four students and a substitute teacher, from Carl Hayden community high school, that participates in participated in a college-level underwater robotics competition AND WON!! They came in as complete underdogs and somehow managed to win the hole competition, even against M.I.T! The movie has a good build-up as we see all the different characters and what they struggle with. But what i think this movie really showed and what made it so great was that it showed that you can do whatever you want in life as long as you have perseverance, interest and work hard enough. You dont need all the equipment or money in the world to succeed, as long as you Hustle, and have a good team behind you of course. which brings me to the second part i really liked about the movie; The strong relationships and teamwork amongst the students and the teacher. It was rough at times because all the people struggled with their own stuff, but they got together at last and showed what true friendship and teamwork looks like!

I really liked the movie and would recommend it to everyone!

    hi Martin, i’m Holly and I’m from Wilderness School in south Australia. i’m 15 and i like netflix, icecream and parties. i’m currently in year 10, and i’m doing mental illness as my topic. what’s your opinion on mental illness? do you think it’s misunderstood? do you know anyone with a mental illness? i followed you on twitter lol thx bye. it’d be nice to hear from you my email is 🙂


    1. Thanks for the reply! I think mental illness is very difficult topic to discuss. there are many people struggling with mental illness and many being depressed. But i think the problem might be exaggerated, if you are going through a rough time you`re often told you have a mental illness or that you are depressed, and although this is totally right sometimes, many times it is not. At last i think if you struggle with mental illness it is your own responsibility to reach out for help. And call a suicide hotline if you are suicidal.
