absolutely fabulous! =D
I like stories that depict the future in certain ways. Immediately my mind starts to assess the gaps and realize how close we actually are to such a future. No matter how many times, no matter how many movies this happens in, I can’t help but have this visceral reaction to seeing a sparsely populated planet Earth.
Wall-E starts off with exactly that future. Empty. Desolate. Lone. Void of any organic life. I loved it!
Without actually giving out any details, I think the movie could have ended about 5 minutes before it did. And if it did, it would have taken the movie to an entirely different level. But I understand this is a Disney movie targeting children. I have come to terms with this.
Oh, one of the things I noticed during the movie was that I was laughing a good 2 to 3 seconds before everyone else. Either I was seeing into the movie more than was there, or everyone else was just slow that day.
Yes, if you haven’t seen it, you should go see it.
p.s. thanks for asking me out to see it. besides just talking about it, i might not have actually gone to see it otherwise.
