Thumbs up Go see WALL-E

First, I was blown away by the animation. The story was great, and any CrossFitter will get a complete laugh at how it portrays people and robots (and a pesty bug) in the future. There are also moments of pure genius in how a robot programmed for a simple task (not just the main characters) faces an issue thats beyond its programming and adapts to it.

Its one of the best movies I've seen come from a Disney/Pixar duo in quite some time, and I usually don't go see movies of this type, but I was very glad I went. If you have kids they will fully enjoy this movie as well!

George;

The White family visits Cape Cod every summer, 17 straight this year, and each year we go to the Disney movie or some other animated movie on a rainy day. This year's movie is Wall*E!

Re: Go see WALL-E

I have a differing opinion. I have young kids and often have to see animated movies. I thought it was marginally entertaining. I suggest renting 2001 if you enjoyed the whole space/deeper meaning aspect. On a side note, for entertainment-wise, Kung Fu Panda was much better.

I've heard that Kung Fu Panda was pretty good as well. I'm guessing it doesn't have as many social underlying themes as Wall-E though, which is what I enjoyed, every overweight person in the theater felt like crap and probably took a look at themselves, where as in KFP his largeness is a commodity.

Re: Go see WALL-E

SPOILER DISCLAIMER:

The underlying "theme" of Kung FU Panda is that there is no secret to Kung Fu (or success in life in general), just believe in yourself. Po doesn't believe he is worthy of reading the dragon scroll, of being the dragon warrior, so he is not good at Kung Fu. Then he finds out there is nothing in the dragon scroll--you yourself already contain the qualities to be the dragon warrior-he then believes in himself, and he becomes great at Kung Fu and saves China.

I can't believe I just wrote this about a cartoon movie!

Re: Go see WALL-E

I am shamelessly seeing this a 3rd time with my boss's kids today. Any excuse to see it again, really

I've got a thing for robots
