UP! by Pixar

I was watching this beautiful video and thinking to myself, wow, I love animated movies because they dont fill you with false expectations about real life because you instanly recognise the film for what it is. Pure enjoyment.

Meanwhile in traditional movies, all these stereotypes that we view on a constant basis, shape our perceptions about how we interact and how we are supposed to interact with each other.

And Now… Drum Roll… A synopsis of every holly wood plot that ever existed….
Boy meets girl
Boy and girl have spark
Drama ensues
Girl about to leave boy
Boy realises his mistake and that she is the one
Boy performs grand gesture to rekindle the spark.
The live happily until the credits start rolling.

Now why is this wrong? its an awesome thing to think about and it creates seriously strong emotions in all of us but has that ever happened in true life, has someone ever had that incredible set of romanticized experiences without gagging, or choking on their own bile. I doubt it.

At least at pixar, you enjoy the film and appreciate it for exactly what it is… FANTASY. You dont wake up the next day and start placing excessive expectations on events and interactions and you certainly dont start thinking that grand, soppy, (giving your balls to a girl) gestures will endear you to her and get you into her pants.

I want my hot water bottle.
