I was trying to make alist of these movies for a long time. Now I made this list showing some of the moves that are allegories according to plenty of internet sources.For those who don't know allegory is symbolism. I hope you enjoy it and if you disagree with some or you find inapropriate please inform me! thank you for understanding
