The place that represents Joe’s childhood will covert him into a young man as he changes the tradition.
Philbrick did not only write a meaningful book about hope and friendship but also made it a realistic, adventure novel. His novel entertained me but also made think about what hope truly is. Hope isn’t when when you think oh I’m too lazy to study but I hope I do alright on the test.

Carter played by Morgan Freeman was lower middle class man that didn't have much money but was a very strong family man. Upon diagnosis the men realized that they had some regrets in life and made a goal to live life to the fullest in the final months. Although the Bucket list was a very heart warming and showed many aspects of an older adult's life, I believe that overall the movie reinforced more of the negative stereotypes of aging.
