Most kids let their curiosity take them to adventurous places, whether it’s the park, or the playroom. This perspective is taken to greater heights in the 1985 film “The Goonies.” Mikey and Brandon Walsh live in a house being prepared for demolition to make room for a new golf course. The family doesn’t have nearly enough money it will take to save the house, so they prepare to move. When Mikey and his friends (Mouth, Chunk, Andy, Steph and Data) stumbleupon the infamous 17th century pirate one-eyed-willy’s treasure map, they set out on a journey. A journey which starts by getting to the entrance itself, which is below the house of a group of thieves and murderers.
Although he shows these traits, he doesn’t realize that he has friends. He is finally convinced when Alai says to him, “‘Always my friend, always the best of my friends,’” ( ).

Another powerful example of his friendships extent is when William Bee answered, “‘Ender, if you 're on one side of the battle, it won 't be equal no matter what the conditions are.’ ‘Right!’, called the boys. Many of them laughed.
Unapologetic humorous satire is the main goal in Voltaire's novella “Candide”. Positive concepts such as love, religion, and optimism are cast in a negative and comedic fashion under his pen. The one area in life that is ridiculed mercilessly is optimism. This is a continuous theme throughout the story. Candide, the title character and main protagonist, is a wide-eyed lad that has become indoctrinated in an over-zealous philosophy of optimism.
In “Violent Media is Good for Kids”, Gerard Jones argues that violent media gives good impact for psychology development of the children. This good impact has been implemented to himself and make him a writer as well as his son who transformed bloodthirsty dinosaur into a stimulation to enter preschool; a Power Ranger into self endowment by joining social competition in Kindergarten.

From his experiences, he believes that violent entertainment in which people might think it is the trashiest pop culture has its own developmental function.
The authors use of satirical humor contributes to this. In Volataires Candide, there are endless examples of thoughtful laughter, however the one that is recognized immediately is that of the character by the name of Pangloss. Pangloss is an unremitting optimist. No matter what happens, his view is the same. His philosophy is that they live in the best of all possible worlds.
He used sarcasm to perfect his work of satire. He quotes, “I loved this work. I would be hard-pressed to recount any event from my personal or professional life that more accurately typified the phrase crazy fun.” (Alford, 999). I think that the author is using a very sarcastic way to say how ridiculously stupid his job is. He is just an extra that has big dreams of becoming a famous Hollywood actor.

There’s a war on baby toys. In a modern world only the best is good enough for our future offspring and to find the best, we must test the best.

Scrapping the new alien-age gimmick-gadgets that is Leapfrog and co. Like a motley crew of toys, should we reconsider their use? Cooks bold headline juxtaposes concepts of tradition and modernism, a blood bath of words if not for the impartial partisan of a noun and a verb.
I read the review of a kid’s film, “The Lego Movie” by Christy Lemire. The author seemed to be very surprised by the way she reacted to the film. She felt that it went beyond the traditional genre for children and provided a response in her review. What she felt astounding her, so much that she stated how the old cliché saying “I laughed, I cried” was very much true for her. The common expectations about the genre of the film that she points out in her review is catchy theme songs, predictable scenes, hacky punchlines, and an exhausting simple message.
