When I was little I always used to hate Sid from Toy Story. As you’re meant to. I mean he tortured and dismembered toys. I just assumed he was the evil villain that is always portrayed.
One day when my brother was 12 we were watching the movie again. He paused it at this line and said
“This is how I know Sid isn’t evil. He is a deeply sad kid who doesn’t know how to be affectionate. For all we know he never got any from his parents. He might be trying to fight mental disorders or learning disabilities that his family haven’t noticed. He clearly wants attention which is why he does these horrible things. This totally innocent line from his dreams show that he actually just wants to be noticed and have the same opportunities as his sister, who I think he is jealous of. He may even be confused about his gender. Sid isn’t evil, he’s misunderstood and alone.”
Never watched it the same way again.
