pixar's ratatouille is a heavy-handed, insensitive attempt to refute common post-war anti-semitic tropes
are all about puberty and sexual maturity (thanks, Alan Moore!)
So is Labyrinth, though Alan Moore didn't tell me that one.
the Wizard of Oz was supposed to be a warning to the USA not to abandon the gold standard?

other than IT teach and sports teach being the droids. i need to watch the first series of teachers again to remember and that's clearly not going to happen
ratatouille casts the jewish stereotypes (theft, pulling strings behind the scenes) as coming about through enforced circumstances. i.e. the reason the rat has to manipulate the chef is because it would be unacceptable for him to be front-and-centre. the film then shows the rats as multi-faceted, talented characters (attempting to refute these stereotypes) but is heavy-handed because it accepts the racist premise in the first place

The viewer mostly takes up the space the ego does, trying to navigate between Greggs Id and John's superego and reach a judgement on the moral character of the contestants and their will (the food they make).
I subscribe to the Umberto Eco view that Noel Gallagher's a poet and Liam's a town crier and I've always seen that as a perfect combination

"We, the adults, are the toys. One day, our children will get bored playing with us. They won't want to be cuddled by us; they won't want to confide in us; they will go away and leave us. It will never be the same again. The toys in Toy Story 3 are sent away to a daycare centre where they are victimised and mistreated – just like the infantilised inmates of an old people's home."
like sending your kids to their grandparents house when you want a night out
Muggles are Jews, Slytherin are nazis, Voldermort is Hitler, Malfoy is Goebbels.
