After hearing Wall-E’s director, Andrew Stanton, on Fresh Air yesterday morning, I turned to the Hubby after he changed his clothes from work: “Let’s see Wall-E.”
Of course, we’ve heard all the hoopla about the movie by this time, mostly positive but some negative (mostly from laissez-faire ultra-conservatives), and, like most movies that’re coming out and have come out in theatres, I’ve just been waiting for it to hit DVD, and, thus, Netflix.
But Stanton’s interview was persuasive enough — and, more importantly, the movie was short enough and the afternoon was early enough (keeping pick-up time of Daniel from daycare in mind) — that it was like the perfect alignment of the planets.
“Let’s see Wall-E.”
After spending a reasonable amount of cash for tickets (we caught a matinee show) and an unreasonable amount of cash for popcorn and soft drinks, we watched Wall-E in a nearly empty theatre (it was early afternoon, afterall).
Instead of writing yet another review of this movie, read The Jelly-Pinched Wolf’s 2 July 2008 entry. I agree with him 100%.
