Toy Story 3 | Movie Review

Hi guys, it's been a while since the last time I updated my blog. Well, I have been so busy lately for doing nothing. MySpace Last week, I watched the third sequel of Toy Story franchise. Yes, Woody is back after years of long sleep. This movie review is about Toy Story 3.

What happen with your toys when you grow up? Do you throw them to the nearest bin? Do you ever think your toys feeling? Well, you better do that if your toys can speak and act like humans as in Toy Story 3. 

This movie tells about Woody (the cowboy doll character) and his toy fellows belonged to Andy. Since Andy is now a grown up boy, going to college soon, he never plays with his toys anymore. If you watch Toy Story 1 and 2, you will ask "what happen with the other toys? Why are there only few toys remaining in this movie?" Andy is off to college soon and he has to select which belongings he will take with him to the college. To their surprise, the toys are all put in a black plastic bag except one toy, Woody. The other toys think that Andy is going to throw them away. They feel so bad and thus, they choose to go along with Barbie, to a kind of kindergarten where it is said to be the heaven for the neglected toys. However, finally Woody reveals that the kindergarten is not the heaven for their friends; instead it is a hell for them. How will Woody save his friends? Will it have a happy ending? Will the toys be happy again? 

In my opinion, Toy Story 3 is the best Toy Story movies ever made. It has so many positive moral values to teach to children and adult as well. It teaches us to appreciate anything whether it is a dead thing or living thing. They are all part of our lives and thus we should take a good care of them. As an animation movie, it certainly offers you more than a silly animation story. It offers you with great story line and many entertaining as well as heartbreaking scenes MySpace  

Once you watch this, you will think back to your childhood. You will think back to your toys and think whether you have treated them properly enough or not. Well, may be, it is just another message to adult, "don't be afraid to act like kids sometimes because kids can be much wiser than adults".

Watch this and I guarantee you that it will not disappoint you.MySpace

So I rate this movie 9 out of 10 points ... Watch this !!! MySpace

The Two Most Influential Postmodernist Thinkers

This second post about postmodernism will consist of two greatest postmodernist thinkers and their contribution to postmodernism.
1. Jean Fran├žois Lyotard.
Lyotard is a French philosopher. He opened the discussion for postmodernism in social theory with his groundbreaking publication ‘La Condition Postmoderne’ (The Condition Postmodern). His works stress the decline of meta-narratives or grand-narratives, as some scholars refer it. Meta-Narratives as defined in the previous post are sets of ideas governing what is right and wrong. For example, religion defines how to live a good life. By doing so, people who do not appeal to the characteristics of good man as defined by religion will be considered unfaithful, as bad people. Lyotard argues that this way of legitimating declines in a postmodern society. What is considered good can no longer be clearly separated from what is considered bad.

The decline of meta-narratives was triggered by communication development. Traditional communicatio…

Movie Review | Stream of Tears in Wedding Dress

Last Saturday, I got a runny nose -kind of severe, as I recalled- not because of sick, but because I watched a Korean movie entitled WeddingDress.
I have frequently watched Korean movies. In my opinion, they are much better than Indonesian movies. Not that I dislike my country (I just dislike Indonesia’s movies), but yeah, Korean movies have a wide range of preference. You can watch cheesy-funny-romantic movie that make you feel happy and smile all the time. Or try to watch a horror-romanticmovie that makes you laugh and scared. You can also find cool action movie! Some movies even make me cry a lot. I really mean it when I say some Korean movies really make me cry so badly. Wedding Dress is one that makes me cry. I am a boy and I cry. So what? I don’t buy the ubiquitous saying ‘Boys don’t cry’.

Wedding Dress narrates the life of a single mother, Go-eun, played by Song Yun Ah. Her husband dies already, leaving her only with her young daughter, So-ra, nicely played by Kim Hyang-gi. …

Gender Issues in Japanese Anime and Manga

I've got this idea to write about Japan's popular culture for  some times. Firstly, I love Japan's popular culture such as anime and manga.Japan's anime and manga are so popular around the world, transcending nations, age, sex and gender. I read Japan's  manga from the age of 10 (may be), until now. I watched Japan's anime also for years.

One thing that really makes me wonder is about the depiction of gender in those popular culture product. Before furthering the discussion, it is important to say that i follow Ann Oakley's argumentation to differ sex and gender. Sex is naturally determined, while gender is socioculturally constructed. Thus, to speak of male and female is to speak of sex. While to speak of masculine and feminine is to speak of gender. In doing gender (attributing gender characteristics in body), people are for so long stereotyped by the existing binary relation. It means that male should develop masculine traits to be called as a real man.…
