Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'' gives two lessons and in turn deconstructs many of {{Disney}}'s earlier films. One: There is no such thing as LoveAtFirstSight. Only by getting to know and understand someone can you possibly fall in love with them. Two: An act of true love isn't about romance. It's about loving someone with all your heart, unconditionally.

* While his movies haven't ever exactly been subtle, especially with the HumansAreTheRealMonsters message (literally every "zombie" movie Romero has made, including ''Film/TheCrazies'' as well as ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968'' and sequels has the main characters almost encounter still living people who are just as, if not more, dangerous as the monsters), George A. Romero cranked the anvils up to eleven in ''Film/DiaryOfTheDead'', where the main character flat out asks if humanity is worth saving at all over a clip of two guys using zombies for target practice. He could honestly be said to live on this trope.

* ''Film/Switch1991:'' Sexism is so bad that premeditated murder in this life and eternal damnation in the next (unless you manage to find the exit just in time) are just what's coming to you.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' doesn't make any effort to hide Nolan's skepticism of the Occupy movements.

** Rather idiotic really, especially as the United States never gave arms to the "Arab Afghans" under OsamaBinLaden, because they were a huge PaperTiger - only Pakistan armed them, but stopped when they realized how useless they were (they essentially became a glorified adventure holiday for disaffected Saudi youth). For their part, the Mujahideen used to "requisition" the weaponry and vehicles sent to Bin Laden for their own purposes - and actually put them to decent use.

* ''Disney/LadyAndTheTrampIIScampsAdventure'' is about how you need to stop dreaming about travelling the world and experiencing life outside the place where you grow up, because it's your duty to settle down, raise a family and behave yourself.

* D. W. Griffith. Anyone who has taken film school and been forced to watch his films, from ''Film/BrokenBlossoms'' to ''Film/BirthOfANation'', knows that the father of modern cinema was not exactly a master of subtlety.
