    “Up” nothing. Wait until you rewatch Toy Story 2 or 3 as parents. Oh, MAN, I cried at the montage about Jessie’s back story.

    I think another reason Billy, at least,likes Doctor Who is because people tend to be basically good. The Doctor can always win by talking and reaching someone’s better nature. Billy loves a good villain, but his favorite thing is when they become good guys.

    Also, re: Vader and Obi-wan’s light saber fight, that’s actually the only part of the original trilogy that I enjoy more now that I’ve seen the prequels. There actually is some extra weight from having seen them as friends in the prequels, plus Vader’s lines and James Earl Jones’ delivery are so weirdly petulant that it’s easy to imagine that seeing Obi-wan has made him regress from hulking shadowy badass to whining bratty Hayden Christiansen.

    Smells like… …screenplays.

    If not screenwriting, how do you explain your use of the words: inciting, high concept, stakes, arc and monomyth?
