MOVIE REVIEW: WALL-E
On Black Friday I bought Wall-E for $6 from Wal-mart. I had never seen it before, but I figured Luke would love it because he always loves anything made by Pixar.
If you haven't seen it, here's a quick summary:
Lonely robot left alone on a polluted Earth to clean-up the mess left by humans. The humans are all living on a big cruise ship floating through space. The human race has become fat, stupid and lazy. Everything on Earth was bought out by some Costco type store. Wall-E falls in love with another robot.... yes, robot love.
After musicals, my next favorite genre of movies is apocalyptic. I'm not kidding. I love "end of the world" type stuff - Gattaca, Soylent Green, Minority Report... I love most apocalyptic movies with the exception of Waterworld (Erik's favorite) and anything too dark. So, I actually really liked Wall-E.
The problem with Wall-E is that it is not a movie for 2 year olds, as would be Toy Story or Cars. Luke looked really puzzled the whole time and I spent a long time thinking about how much marketing revenue Disney lost out on by producing such an adult oriented animated feature.
So, anyone else seen this? What do you think? Masterpiece or just a really weird movie?
