Why Not?

The Randomness is What Creates the Magic by Daniel L.

In cartoons it seems like it is okay for there to be magic and its automatically a children’s story just because it is a cartoon. In movies like Aladdin, Cinderella, and movies like that, it has a lot of magic and creativity in it. Now The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland has a lot of magic and creativity also, but we seem to think that there is something more, just because there is a lot of random stuff. If you think about it though in the movie Snow White there is also alot of really random events that occur. Like when Snow white met the seven dwarfs, that was really random. In all fairy tails, there are really random events, and I think that is what makes it a children’s story because for some reason children seem to understand what is going on even if it doesn’t make any sense.

In Harry Potter, some people see it as a dark film. I think the reason is because it isn’t a cartoon. So picture Harry Potter as a cartoon. It wouldn’t seem as real and it would be more like a children’s story. Now Harry Potter has a lot of really random things in it but the randomness is what makes it so interesting and randomness is what helps us actually get into the story because of the magic that is in that story. If the movie wasn’t random or anything like that, then it would be some regular normal movie that is just like every other movie.

It is the movies like Snow White, Cinderella, and Aladdin that actually have drawn us in because of the magic and the creativity. I think that Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland fall into this category also.

I like your point here Daniel. I think that magic and all of the randomness is the reason we like movies. It’s also another reason why the Disney movies were so popular. Every Disney movie has some form of magic and really cool elements that could never happen in real life. For me, that is the biggest reason why I enjoy Disney movies. It also almost categorizes Disney movies. With a Disney movie you can almost say the ending before it happens, because Disney has that little element of magic that makes the story work.

I like the idea here. I think when things are random we try to explain and connect them and that is the reason tht we see Alice the way we do. Alice presents us with many different ideas and oppenions and they appear to be compleatly un related so, we try to over analyze every though and make it connect to the others.
