Being a piscean, whose symbol is two fish swimming in different directions, having a 50/50 brain and also being an INFJ Myers Briggs Personality Type may explain why I am constantly having inner battles with myself - I am literally a walking contradiction. On the upside, I suppose that I do have the advantage of being able to see both sides of the coin in most cases which could mean that I am diplomatic, but it could also mean that I am indecisive depending on how you look at it.
People on the internet that have a 50/50 brain composition proudly claim that it means they are perfectly balanced. I just think that's a load of shit that some 50/50 people would say in order to cover up the fact that they are all probably a bunch of fence sitters, which I know that I have to work hard on not doing. Things are very rarely ever black and white for me, things are generally a billion shades of varying grey. Fair to say that 50/50 is anything but perfectly balanced, because seeing things from all angles isn't always the best way to be, especially when it comes to making choices, big decisions and getting to the bottom of problems.
Still, it can't hurt to be able to be creative and organised all at once. I like the fact that I enjoy logic and reasoning just as much as expression and intuition. Do I always see it as an advantage? Absolutely not, but I am who I am, and I decided years ago that I was going to embrace myself as I am no matter what, so if I truly am a 50/50, then so be it, there's nothing wrong with that.

Running Time: 100 mins
A drama/comedy, directed by Jonathon Levine and written by Will Reiser, who used his own experience with cancer as inspiration for the script. 50/50 delivers with a refreshingly funny, smart and realistic tone that makes the film completely believable, moving and superbly inspirational.
27 year old Adam has his life turned upside down when he is diagnosed with a malignant cancerous tumor that he has a 50/50 chance of surviving. Adam soon discovers who his real allies are as he goes to war with the cancer that is threatening to take his life.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt does a fabulous job of portraying Adam and is tremendously well supported by Anna Kendrick as Katherine, the young and inexperienced therapist, Bryce Dallas Howard as Rachel, his not so pleasant girlfriend and Anjelica Houston as Diane, his well meaning mother. Surprisingly however, it is Seth Rogan who really shines through here as Kyle, Adam's best friend, showing us that he can really deliver range and depth when it is required.
As far as cancer fighting movies go, and there a lot of them around, this is one of the better ones that I have seen, and it definitely warrants a look.
FINAL SAY: You'll be fine. 50/50! If you were a casino game you'd have the best odds!
