Welcome to the good, the bad and the ugly side of food.
Possibly one of the best animation movies to date. It makes you forget that you actually despise rats, as you fall in love with the aspiring cook, Remy. Paris, food, romance and animation; it doesn’t get much more “feel good” than this.
Take away lesson: If a rat can cook, so can you, so get off your ass and get to it already!
Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011)
A crazy, eighty year–old Japanese man making the world’s best sushi in a subway station. Watch it, and you’ll be convinced that sushi is an art and Jiro is its Picasso.
Take away lesson: There is sushi, and there is sushi. Forget the ***t in the dining halls and aspire to taste the real thing one day.
Food Inc. (2008)
You take a tour of industrial food production, but what you see is less than appetizing. Who would have thought that the chicken your eating right now spent its life in the dark, standing in its own poop, instead of happily prancing around on a sunny field?!
Take away lesson: Stop eating “corporate food.” Become a hippie vegan who grows their own zucchini.
Forks over Knives (2011)
This film looks at whether meat and dairy are really as good for you as people claim. Apparently it really isn’t, and all of us non–vegans are dying slow and painful deaths. Cheers!
Take away lesson: “If it walked, hopped, swam, crawled, slithered, had eyes, had a mama and a papa, don’t eat it!”
