Creating meaning is logically impossible, you can't just invent a logical meaning to the universe or even to yourself, it has to pre-exist and you can only discover it and thus that Andre movie doesn't sound too good.
If you want a better explanation why I think the way I do, look at the latest post at my blog
You can't have no meaning without meaning. Negative can't exist without positive. The presence of one implies, nay, requires the other. That's the way our logic works. These are all just concepts. Meaning is just a concept. Logic isn't a tool you can use to determine what's meaningful, logic is what you use to create coherency amongst a set of ideas or principles. Logically, nothing is meaningful. Nothing is meaningless either. Whichever conclusion you arrive at will depend on something other than logic, even if logic is a big factor in your choice.
Stated differently, logic is useless without imagination, and imagination is useless unless you're tapped into something within you that drives you to keep envisioning something new. Forget about meaning; that's something the human intellect isn't built to grasp on its own. ("The poet asks only to get his head into the heavens. It is the logician who seeks to get the heavens into his head. And it is his head that splites."-G.K. Chesterson) Your heart isn't just a worthless lump of meat in your chest that keeps you alive, it's the symbol of your core humanity. If you want a reason to live that's what you've gotta turn to.
