* GrowingUpSucks: Zig-zagged. The protagonist is excited as he matures from Child to Adolescent to Young Man, as he becomes independent and able to shape his destiny...but he leaves his faithful guardians behind in the process, and eventually his adult longing for love leads to him becoming a chilly Middle-Aged Man who has no joy, wonder, or friends. In the end, he chooses to embrace his childhood ideals once more [[spoiler: and thus reaches true maturity, becoming a loving Old Man who can guide others]]. Growing up doesn't suck...but one has to know what growing up truly means, namely learning and growing into an independent person without abandoning all ideals and connections with others.

* PaddleballShot: While the [=IMAX=] 3D format is used primarily to give the film a look and feel of grandeur and envelopment, there are toss-things-in-the-viewer's face shots too: the first sight of a bungee "bird" is shot from the hero's POV as it descends to within inches of his/the viewer's face, for instance.
