The State Of Positivity In Movies :)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I would like to start a discussion of the state of life positiveness in movies that are released. Movies, the world's most popular art form, are doing a lot to express ideas.

For starter's -

The Time Traveler's Wife, a romantic movie about a man's heroic behavior struggling with illness.

Meet The Robinson's - an animated DIsney movie in praise of the thinker/inventor.

Post your own ideas and comments! :)

I can't say I have seen any really good movies that were positive. However any super heroe movie will typically be positive, and there are lots of those.

Really? Off the top of my head, I came up with

Up

Ratatouille

The Incredibles

The three Toy Story movies

The Avengers

The first three Star Wars movies

The first three Indiana Jones movies

Shawshank Redemption

When Harry Met Sally

Superman

Superman II

Iron Man

That's eighteen movies, and I could easily find more if I checked IMDb.

I meant recent movies. Since that is the context of this discussion.

Although for recent movies it does seem like Pixar, DC, and Marvel make the most. It seems like the family movie industry is the most likely to put out good art, which makes sense. Walt Disney said that he wanted make uplifiting movies that would appeal to both adults and kids. DC and Marvel Comics on the other hand has like four generations of fans now.

I just don't really like watching Pixar films, and I am really really tired of super hero movies.
