    The themes of the movies "Life Out of Balance" and "Crude" are to show how much out lives have changed. It shows how fast the city life is and they put it in fast motion. They also have high speed music to really enhance the feel of how fast paced our lives are. This was then contrasted to the beginning and how calm and serene it is.

  2. The theme of the movie "Life Out Of Balance" is to show us that we the human raise has turned from an animal into a machine. It shows us all the damage we have done and the way we are ruining the lives of the Hopi indians. We need to take this theme of this movie at heart because if we don't we will end our own lives. The theme of the movie "Cruel" was not much different than from "Life Out Of Balance" the only difference was that the movie did not take place in the city but in the Amazon Jungle. We need to stop destroying our beautiful nature. If humans don't stop dumping millions and millions of toxic waste into the environment humans will not be alive for much longer. Both of these movies were shocking but true.

    The two movies "Life out of Balance" and "Crude" were about how human beings are destroying the planet that we live on. The two movies show how we need to do something about the pollution and dumping of waste because it is affecting the animals and humans in those areas. This is destroying the environment that we live in and soon it will be gone. We have become machines in our everyday lives. We do not enjoy what mother nature has to offer to us. but instead we destroy it but cutting down our trees to build our homes.

  4. The movies"Life out if balence" and "Crude" were about how life was changing. They talked or displayed what life used to be like and how it has changedvover generations. They were mostly proving the point that it was and is up to us on how we choose to live it. They also demonstrated howit could turn out if we don't begin to change the way e live. The idea was that we aren't helping our planet by not changing how we frequently use the water supply, energy supply and even all of the unneccesary products that we buy in stores even if we know we shouldn't be.Another thing is that many lands forms in our planet are so beautiful that if only we knew how to appriciate the value of life we'd understand why global warming is such an important topic in our generation that we are living now. Now it's just up to this generation to realize things like that and decide if we want or are willing to make that huge change for our kids and they're kids ad well.

    The theme is that the Earth is slowly getting higher advanced in technology, but it is also slowly dying. Natural surroundings are disappearing and it's blinding people from the more important things in life. The message is that if we don't slow down, our Earth and the people in it will be destroyed.

    The people are up as well as the moon because at night, people are supposed to be sleeping, but the obsession with money is taking over humans and not allowing them to sleep. People have to go outside and enjoy nature instead of staying at home staring at computers, tv screens, or cell phones.

    the theme of "Life Out of Balance" is that technology is changing the world and as the years have gone on the world has became very advancedand reliant on technology. It is a good thing that technology has advanced but it has taken over many peoples lives; making them unfit and leaving them staring at computers, and TV screens for hours.
    Not only has technonlogy changed but the geography, architecture, food and people have also changed. Some of these changes are good but some of them are not such as global warming, and pollution.

  7. The themes of these films are not like most movie themes these days. "The film Life out of Balance" is about how the technology world is growing more and more everyday. But, will it ever stop. The movie shows the world that we are always moving, walking, going further but, never stopping to experience what is around us. The movie's theme is very clear and should be seen everywhere. The messages from both movies is clear that we should stop destroying the natural surroundings and stop creating the artificial ones.

    The theme of the movie "Life Out of Balance" is all about technology. In today's society people have been so connected to technology. People have become working robots for technology. The Global Message is to be aware of what is happening in our world and don't let technology controls us in the future like it does right know.

  9. Life out of Balance does not have any words in it. However, it does send a message. It shows people living life out of balance. They are doing disastrous things such as eating fake food and failing to prevent rockets from exploding. People are moving quickly. The personal message this film has for me is, talk to people about these things if you are suspicious. Crude is about the Ecuadorean Amazon, which is believed to have been polluted. The global message this film has, which is also my personal message is, when people around the world are in trouble, help them.

  10. The themes of "Life Out of Balance" and "Crude" are films about the technological advances in our world today and how it's destroying the world. The message suggests we are destroying our planet more and more each day, when we could turn it around and prevent what could happen in the future, if we don't begin to help what is destroying us. The amount of pollution and waste dumps are contributing to this problem and affecting everyday lives of humans and animals. We need to stop destroying the nature around us, for soon we won't have much left.

    The theme of this movie is to raise awareness of how we are destroying nature. Although technology is helpful, it is slowly killing our home. We are subconscious of the damage that our modern technology is creating. This movie's main focus is to influence people to start making a change in life style. The movie is trying to persuade us to do the little things to help our earth that can make a big difference.
