I love this. Because kids’ movies are SO BAD:
The Atlantic – You Can Do Anything: Must Every Kids’ Movie Reinforce the Cult of Self-Esteem?
Encouraging kids is fine, but films like Planes and Turbo take their messages to an extreme. Parents should turn to 1969′s A Boy Named Charlie Brown for a reality check. by Luke Epplin
It’s probably no coincidence that the supremacy of the magic-feather syndrome in children’s movies overlaps with the so-called “cult of self-esteem.” The restless protagonists of these films never have to wake up to the reality that crop-dusters simply can’t fly faster than sleek racing aircraft. Instead, it’s the naysaying authority figures who need to be enlightened about the importance of never giving up on your dreams, no matter how irrational, improbable, or disruptive to the larger community.
The next two paragraphs after that are AMAZING.
Read into the comments for a nicely-phrased explanation (by someone else) why I enjoyed Monsters University!
