Should've gone before we left.

I think it's odd that overall opinion is that kids don't sense the deeper meaning of life. They might not understand it or be able to explain it, but that doesn't mean they don't feel it. Some of my childhood movies were The Dark Crystal and The Neverending Story. I didn't just like those movies because they had pretty fluffy pictures, i liked them because they had meaning. I didn't understand it at the time, but I most surely felt it.Strange, why couldn't something be targeted to children and adults? Children only pay attention to the cute and cuddly, yes that's very true, but that simply doesn't mean that there can't be a message in it that adults can understand. Just because the kids don't see it doesn't mean that it isn't there. It's like the double humour in some old cartoons, just because the young kids only see the slapstick violence, doesn't mean that the cartoon can't be extremely witty at the same time. The young one's simply don't notice that, but we do. Why would that make it less witty? Or in WALL-E's case, less thought-provoking?
Really?! Didn't you just go "awwww" at EVE and WALL-E's 'space dance'?! I found that to be absolutely beautiful.Casual Shinji said:In all honesty, I didn't really like this movie at all.
The first act was pretty cool, seeing a mute robot traversing a desolate metropolis. But the instant the movie enterd outer space it lost all it's dignity.
In response to me not liking WALL-E. I felt that Pixar p*ssied out by putting humans in the movie. Apparently they didn't feel confident enough that the audience would sympayhize with two mute robots. So they put in funny looking humans with a romance of there own. This killed the movie for me. I would've loved it if it was just WALL-E and EVE roaming the lonely Earth filled with lost memories.
