6. How to train your dragon – Never judge a book by its cover

How to train your dragon

Toothless! Who doesn’t like toothless! If you don’t know who is toothless then you better need to go and see this movie first thing today otherwise I’ll make sure I send a DVD across to you. Just kidding! But being a Disney fan yourself, one shouldn’t miss this movie ever. The title isn’t that appealing but I bet you this movie will leave you in awe. The animations, the colors and the frames are really commendable. So this movie is about a clan named Vikings who lived in their land for many centuries and also the mortal enemy of the dragons. Yup! Dragons used to invade their land to steal food for themselves so they made up training techniques and plans to fight against these dragons. Out of this there was this one dragon named Night fury, being a fast one they don’t know how it looks. Hiccup isn’t like the usual child of a brave Viking; timid and shy, he preferred being alone in his own world. He never believed in himself. Although to fit in the society and win his father’s trust, he agrees to take up the training on how to kill a dragon. However as the times goes, he befriends himself with the night fury itself in the most unusual sort of ways. As and when he came to know about the dragon he came to know it wasn’t as bad and dangerous as it seemed to be. Later on during a trip with the dragon, Hiccup finds out the nest of a much bigger dragon which compels all the other small dragons to get food for it. That’s when Hiccup realizes the smaller ones aren’t as bad as themselves as they stole the food to save themselves from getting eaten up. Once in your lifetime, you will across a person who acts out of their character or simply isn’t being themselves. That’s when you shouldn’t be judgmental and label that person as wrong. Moreover, there might be some practice or traditional that is wrong by itself by its face value; you shouldn’t act blind and go with it. Instead look deep into it, analyze it and decide whether it’s right or wrong. Just because someone says that person is right or wrong and same in the case of any practice, you shouldn’t be judgmental by the stereotypical thoughts. Always have an open mind to accept new ideas and thoughts, even if it’s unconventional.

8. Cinderella – Good things comes to those who wait

Cinderella

Cinderella is the one story which gave many little girls dreams of having happily ever after life like that of Cinderella herself. They are mesmerized by how a fairy god mother came and helped her to attend the Prince’s party. Be it creating the dress and the carriage out of anything, Cinderella was given a lifetime’s dream wish fulfilled. Cinderella was literally tortured by her step mother and her ugly twin step sisters. The fortune that was left by her father to her was taken by her step mother and treated her nothing more than a maid in her own house, doing house chores and every other small work. She wasn’t given a good life and every day she suffered silently. But that didn’t break her confidence because she knew one day somebody would listen to her deep wishes in her heart and would take her away from this suffering. She waited for many years and when the correct time came, fairy god mother fulfilled her wish. She got what she wished for, an understanding husband and a fairy tale happily ever after life. Some people would why she accepted all that torture from her step mother and sisters, my answer would be she was too moral to go against them after all she didn’t have a mother and having a step mother, keeping her happy was what she wanted. So she waited for something good to happen. Life gives us and puts us into grave troubles at times and during this time we go perplex, not knowing what to do we take hasty decisions. Sometimes when life gives us problems and suffering, it’s better to let it pass by rather than trying to fight it out. If you are patient enough good things will come to you eventually. When you are sad and depressed, nothing is permanent. This bad time would be replaced with good times.

 

9. Up – Never forget what you have

Up

Up is considered one of the colorful movies made by Disney. You don’t believe me? How about remembering that scene about a floating house held by various balloons flying through the wilderness of South America! So now that you recall that, you won’t deny that fact it was indeed very colorful. The very movie kept us held from the time it began till the end. Everything about it was felt pleasant. Be it Ellie’s crooked smile at first, Carl’s blush cheeks, Ellie and Carl’s unique love story, Dug’s constant bickering, Kevin’s antics or Russell’s determination; everything made us live our childhood once more. That is how we were, constantly dreaming up one adventurous life for ourselves. While we make plans for a life filled with adventures, we end up forgetting people and leaving them behind. In the pursuit of having a life completely different, we often leave out many people from the page of our life. The thing we forget that, living with the ones who cares and loves you; cherishing every single moment is most important thing. The moment Carl opens their adventure book at the end that he realizes, seeing the pictures, that he indeed had an adventurous life with his wife, Ellie. For Ellie their marriage and all those moments together were valuable and eminent.
