So yesterday I went to the the theater to watch WALL-E with my cousins, neighbor, and brother.

According to a friend who quoted another person, “WALL-E is cute but has no plot.”

I beg to differ, at least from the second part. WALL-E was “cute”, and there were some pretty hilarious moments where you can’t help but laugh.

However, there’s something deeper to the movie than just it’s spectacular graphics and animation.
Perhaps the movie will lend some thought to attempting to save the Earth’s environment. It might just happen – our world will be filled with mountains of junk. In WALL-E, the entire Earth is surrounded by a perpetual layer of assorted space junk. So pick up your trash.

Then there’s the question of obesity. In the future, everyone is fat. They can’t get around anywhere without going in an automatic, motorized comfort chair. Even babies start their lives in hovercribs. All they have to do to get something to eat is snap their hands and some robot will deliver. They don’t even know that their luxury space liner has a running track. In fact, their jaw muscles are probably not much stronger than their hearts. No chewing involved when your cupcakes come in cup.

Not only are they fat, but they are illiterate. If they want something defined, it has to be by pictures and video clips. All instructions are accompanied by graphics. And when it comes to the point where an Earthling doesn’t even know what Earth is, then … well, I don’t really know what to say – I’ve already used up Bush’s No Child Left Behind act once, so I’ll just stick with the classic “all hope is lost”.

    I think it was great that Wall-e took an approach to help the environment, but I doubt it will be a classic Disney movie. Some say it might be too deep for children to watch it, but it’s really good that they’re informing them. And it still can be enjoyable, as you said that there were funny parts.
