A reader response theorist would celebrate the movie The Pagemaster directed by Pixote Hunt and Joe Johnston.
One reason why The Pagemaster would be celebrated is that it takes having an ‘emotional journey’ with your stories quite literally when the main protagonist is thrown into a fantasty world with three different genres of literature (Fantasy, Horror, and Adventure) in book form. You find yourself enjoying all that has to come with the quirky mannerisms of each and every character from Horror's understandalbe cowardice to Adventure's grizzly tough exterior, and you get caught up in their own little exploits.
Another reason why one would feel the need to celebrate this movie is that you get the authors purpose. Not only did you follow the characters on a magical adventure(and as children the realm of mae-believe is a grand way to leave things before you're to be subjected to the confinement and conformity of school), the purpse of the author was caught lie most inane top forty songs. You know that by the tranformation the protagonist underwent from meak mouse to fearless dragon slayer. You just knew that he had it in him the entire time, you knew that was the purpose of everything he ever went through on his journey, to bring out, as cheesey as it sounds, the bravery you had in yourself all along.
