FRIDAY MATINEE ON MONDAY..
After seeing the adorable pitiful, rusty robot poster, tugging at my bleeding heartstrings, I decided to see Wall-E.
Our movie theatre was packed with mostly young children with their parents. About 20 minutes into the film most of the kids were up running around and not paying any attention to the movie.
I believe Pixar messed up when they cast the 2 main roles with NO DIALOGUE! The effects were really cool though, but it didn’t appear to keep small children entertained. I was bored at the end of the movie and just wanted it to end, and I’ve loved all the Pixar movies in the past, IE Finding Nemo, Cars, Monster Inc.
One thing that really bothers me, is the way these family movies are turned into "green" issues, portraying corporate America as a demon, destroying our world. I really wish they would express this in a different forum. I know Happy Feet went down the same road, and the message is lost on their core audience…young children.
The funniest thing about the movie was the 5 minute preshow short subject. I’d say this experience was night and day compared to KUNG FU PANDA, its WAY more entertaining.
So this was a mix for me...out of five stars, I give Wall-E:
