Tonight I went to see WALL*E. I’d read several blogs and reviews about this movie and everything I’d read was good, so although I didn’t know much about it, I shelled out the $8.75.
Ummm … hmmm.
Maybe I didn’t get it. I mean, I got it loud and clear. The message couldn’t have been more overstated. We are a fat, lazy, wasteful culture trashing our planet. I realize the movie is supposed to be an exaggeration, but even for Hollywood it seemed very overdone.
What I didn’t get is why everyone loved this movie so much.
I’m a communications person. I’m definitely a dialogue girl and this movie had very little of that. I’ll admit … it was pretty amazing how much they communicated without anyone talking. I can appreciate that. But I think the dialogue-packed Gilmore Girls is more my style.
Have any of you seen this movie? Maybe you can help me appreciate it. And help me not feel like I wasted nine bucks.
On a more positive pop culture note:
I just recently stumbled across Mika. If you’re a Queen fan, you’ll probably love this CD. It’s like Euro-pop. Very fun.
Makes me want to dance.
