Ok, ok so I am not going to write down exactly what happens (I don’t want to spoil it for those who have not seen it, and for those who have, well, they have already seen it!)
So, were they shoving Liberal and Environmental Propaganda down my throat?….well, honestly a little. But were they completely wrong?……my answer is No!
I agree that we have made huge and necessary progressions in the last 100 years, but our resources are being used up so quickly, at what point will the earth really just have nothing left to give……OK that might be the hippie in me talking. J
My brothers main argument about why he did not really like the movie was a good one. He wondered, How could they build this massive spaceship that could carry and maintain a population for 700 years but they couldn’t figure out a way to build a ship to take all the waste and trash into the sun? (or something like that)…good point Todd.
Adam & my dad didn’t really like how the humans were portrayed. Which, I guess, I can see what they are saying, but again here I have to ask were they(Pixar writers) wrong? Hasn’t our society gotten fatter & lazier. It HAS!!!! (talk to your parents and grandparents about their childhoods and it will be obvious that with each generation we get a little lazier). In the movie all the humans are floating around on hover chairs b/c they are too fat to even walk. They have a virtual screen in front of their face, speakers at their ears and they are always on the run (they have fast, fast food). Is that not a well thought out analogy for how it is in our society today? I think it is.
Holly, you are asking “why get caught up in this, it’s just a silly story”. Well, I know that it is a Cartoon (yes, I know) I know that the main characters in it are Robots, but I have to argue that it is one of the cutest animated Love Stories Ever!!!!! I dare someone to disagree .
Coming Soon---we went to Tucson this last weekend, read all about it! :)
