This time on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, we’re digging deeper into “Wall-E” from 2008, directed by Andrew Stanton. We’re very happy to welcome Elizabeth from Mommy’s Cocktail Hour.
Pixar has a string of solid movies in their catalog, and “Wall-E” stands out as one of the best. It’s a touching and heartwarming story of Love transcending all boundaries. The surprise in Wall-E is an interesting dystopian story about Environmental destruction and over reliance on Technology. It’s a film everyone can watch and enjoy, and you’ll get more than you expect.
Rem really couldn’t find anything wrong with Wall-E. Elizabeth thought there could have been more character development in the other robot characters. Ian found the second half of the film (aboard the Axiom) to be somewhat overwhelming and all the frantic paced action really took him out of the story. Jonathan found a few small points that were irritating, and thought it very unlikely that Humanity would devolve to the point of existing in hover chairs.
Wall-E is a real treat for viewers of any age. Young people will really enjoy the fast paced physical humor and interesting characters. There’s also a deeper story about Humanity and our relationship with Technology and the Environment. If you haven’t see it yet, why not?
Thanks to Elizabeth from Mommy’s Cocktail Hour for joining us on the show!
