We went to three films this past week on our vacation. We went with a diverse group of all ages to see Disney's newest film, Wall-E. I love Disney films and looked forward to seeing this one. Most of the group liked the movie. Johnny and I absolutely hated it. In my opinion, it was the biggest waste of money for any film I've ever seen!
For over thirty minutes, there was no dialogue! When dialogue began, it mostly consisted of two robots calling to each other over and over: "Wall-E" and "Ev-Ah." Oh my, it was boring. The story line is that we are such horrible consumers that we have ruined planet Earth, and now, all earthlings must go to outer space to find room to exist while robots clean up the earth--which is covered with dust so thick you can barely see through it--meaning, you can barely see the film!
It's a never-ending, lonely task and so our "hero" has a companion: a roach. Yuk! At one point, the roach is stepped on, and I cheered. I DO so hate roaches. Not to worry; it came back to life. Roaches never die; we all know that.
I give this horrible film a huge thumbs down. Have you seen it? What do you think?
Tomorrow I'll review Hancock and the following day Get Smart.
