Walle

While having dinner tonight with the family, we got into a discussion on what is this world coming to. If you have ever seen the Disney movie Walle?  We think that is coming to be quite soon. Today, some work from home. You can do all your banking and shopping online. You can order all the basic nessities and have delevered right to your front door. You can FaceTime just about anyone now a days. You can sit in your recliner and do all of this. Just about no human contact. It's just like the movie.

Id like to point out. Wall-E was a damn masterpiece. And was based on biblical relations. The ship was an ark. Wall-e and Eve were meant to be adam and eve. Also spoke a lot about consumerism. If that movie had been made today it would have been shite canned the second someone presented it.

Im a grown azz man and i will put that movie on replay for days. Minimal dialogues. And no face to put on a robot. Yet the animators made his eyes so full of expression and his hand gestures so human that it just breaks your heart.

you don'ts got to justify yourself to me, Cinderella is my favorite Disney movie, I am a particular fan of GusGus and Jack ( the mice) most Disney movies, the supporting characters steal the show. though I won't lie, I was really hoping for a seashell malfunction during the little mermaid.

Wall-E is an outstanding movie.  Great on several levels.

Disney, however, seems to be going the wrong way.  Not to bust anybody's bubble, but facts is facts.

I'll agree that it's a good movie. My family and I were discussing how realistic it is becoming. The movie came out 11 years ago. Some people are so into the technology of today. When I started dating my wife in 1987, we would see each other on the weekends and talk on the phone on Wednesday nights. There was no other communication with her. I lived about 1.5 hrs away. Once I moved closer, it was the same. We have 2 daughters and they are in constant communication with their boyfriends. It's all because of the technology. Don't get me wrong, I use it quite a lot.

Loved that movie, saw it with the wife year after we were married. It stays on the DVR permanently.  I think I'll watch it with the girls tonite.

My wife orders lots off internet,  but still drives 15 miles to get stuff alot too. 

To offset her, I spend almost every possible minute outside. Spend 2 hours cutting wood after work today. Got 2 weeks worth of wood ready.

I was just thinking yesterday that Google and Amazon are like Big N Large, keeping an eye on us and spoon feeding us crap by monitoring our consumption.  Good movie!  You should watch it.

No Google, no Amazon F'em.

Cinderella (Aschenbroedl) is one of the Grimms' collected Maerchen (I can't bother trying to type umlauts @U-C). I studied German and because of the importance of the Grimms' work to the establishment of the "German language" which didn't formally exist before them, we spent an entire semester studying them and the regional/dialetic differences in each story, depending on the region where the Grimms found it. In English we call them fairy tales and their connotation has come to mean something flippant and embellised. However, when the Grimm brothers were traveling around central Europe collecting and recording those stories for the first time, they believed that they may have been something like a pre-history anthology of Germanic history, subject to eons of oral retelling. I would say "bible" very loosely, for lack of a better word. Anyway, they're fascinating when studied in context. I miss college.

And, as for movies with deeper meanings, I always thought the socialism satire of the movie Antz was great. I saw it last in high school, so I may be mis-remembering it in part, but the anti-socialist message was strong with that, and teenage me picked it up without any help. I'm gonna watch Walle now. It probably has more food for thought than most stuff in the theaters.

Most of those well done kids movies have WAY more to offer than initially meets the eye, 

As to the Grimm Fairy Tales my wife has a few in their original (translated) version, nothing very flippant or fantastic about them, they are downright dark. She studied them in college, though not to the same extent or with the same eye as you, more the other direction-how they relate to today’s children’s literature .

I agree.  My personal favorites (which I've watched many many times with the grandkids) are Wall-E, Antz, and The Incredibles.

Also, although not animated, The Princess Bride is a wonderful movie, full of clean humor that adults can enjoy.

Orrrrr it could simply be a Disney warning about rampant consumerism like it actually is. Disney doesn't do anything with religion. Though I can see how you'd make the parallels, I think you're digging in a little too deep.

I personally wish you were smart enough to do a quick google before opening your mouth. But you have yet to amaze me.
