The B&E Podcast #108
Why We Love Film Vol.2: Wax On, Wax Off
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We return to discuss the finer points of some beloved films by ourselves and audiences worldwide. The pictures in review today are Pixar’s wonderful “Inside Out”, and John G. Avildsen’s “The Karate Kid”. We break them down on a technical storytelling level and also take time wandering and exploring the deeper thematic elements and ideas these stories were telling.
POINT #1: “INSIDE OUT”
-This modern Pixar classic has depth out the wazoo. There are so many messages and ideas being communicated it will blow your mind. With all the complexity to it, it all comes out of a very simple story concept which is key.
POINT #2: “THE KARATE KID”
-Re-examining a childhood favourite reveals many lessons about humility and the value of struggle in our lives. This is way more than just a story about a bunch of guys who want to punch each other.
POINT #3: “WE DON’T KNOW SOMETIMES”
-Both of these films illustrate this point. We don’t often know why certain things happen the way that they do, but it’s often exactly what we need.
