    Buried in an Ant Hill

    This grotesque example of a children¿s story is anything but appealing. I was horrified to see DreamWorks create a story so loosely based on human society as it is today. The ants, compared to Americans, become blown up, maimed for life by an acid spray, and dismembered by termites, who are compared terrorists. Small children, and others, are terrified to open their eyes and see this horrific massacre. But when it¿s over, the story line does NOT get better. The ant ¿hero¿ Z sets out to find a Utopia outside of his ant hill, but before he leaves, he kidnaps the ant princess, Bala. As the troops set out to find her, you see more slaughter and destruction. The best part was the happily ever after, only because it was over. But even the end has suggestion of adult behavior. This is not a movie for the kids, or even the adults to see. I hope to see DreamWorks produce better movies in the future.

    The American Social Structure

    I found this movie to be a superb example of the functionalist view of the social structure. Functionalist beleive that the structure is universal, rigid, and balanced when people stay in their roles or ''place''. Z provides the example for those people in our society who are ''free thinkers'' and want to live outside the box. These are the people who are not tolerated by wealthy, powerful, or prestigious. People like Z challenge the status quo - by daring to believe that people should be valued for who they are and not ''how much dirt thay can haul''. My students were asked to analyze this movie using the textbook and it opened their eyes to the reality of our American structure.
