6 Deliciously Good Food Moments In Film

25 May

Ratatouille

The most important relationship that you can have with anything is with food. Especially as the means for nourishment and self-indulgence. Food can educe intense emotions the same way a film can do. Particularly, directors and writers do use food as a means to reveal personalities of their characters on screen.

Everybody savours their food comforts at home. Not to mention that everybody loves viewing their cherished film. Each gives you fond memories, either as a child and at present, leaving us a taste for more and makes us going back to recreate those fond memories.

There are countless films in which food steals the leading role and transforms it into iconic moments that people do reminiscence and savour the same way they do with their desired savoury or sweet dish.

This list will look at those moments while teasing your taste buds or provoking feelings of nausea. Spoilers ahead.

15 Ways In Which Pixar Teaches You Everything About Life

27 Dec

Up Movie1

Pixar movies have the enviably rare ability to tug the chords of viewers’ hearts and wrung emotions out of them like water from soaked clothes. These films, through their words, can make you smile, laugh, cry, cringe and even jump to punch the empty air with an embarrassingly loud hoot. But more importantly, they teach us more about life than schooling, college or any other ‘intellectual’ form of education can ever do.

Thus, as a nostalgic homage to those golden words, this list lists (since that’s what lists do) all the things Pixar has taught the world about life.

15. The Worst Epiphany Ever – Carl Fredricksen

‘This is crazy. I finally meet my childhood hero and he’s trying to kill us. What a joke.’ – Carl Fredricksen, Up.

What it teaches: This single line summarizes the disappointed all of us face when our occasionally juvenile childhood dreams are sucker-punched by Age. The sardonic last phrase shows how bitter that disappointment can be, while affirming, that we all have to swallow such bitter pills.

14. How To Make Friends Happy – Mike Wazowski

‘Roz, my tender, oozing blossom, you’re looking fabulous today. Is that a new haircut? Tell me it’s a new haircut. It’s got to be a new haircut. New makeup? You had a lift? You had a tuck? You had something? Something has been inserted in you that makes you look… Listen, I need a favour.’ – Mike Wazowski, Monster’s Inc.

What it teaches: Sly though as it might be, Pixar values the importance of having to suck up to people to pass a favor or two. A compliment here, a false statement of appreciation there and the world becomes a lot smoother to deal with. Pixar doesn’t underrate the significance of flattery – which is probably the second most ubiquitous f-word in the world. But in the end it shows that as long as friends are concerned, that is entirely superfluous.

13. Love is Often The Simplest of Things – Dug

‘Hi, there! My name is Dug. I have just met you, and I love you.’ – Dug, Up.

What it teaches: The beatific simplicity of love! You don’t need to know a person, judge him by his color or see if he enjoys the same films as you do to love him. It can be as simple as this – greet, meet, love.
