Wall-e



Wow! I can't believe this movie has been out for months and I just recently saw it for the first time. I have been pretty busy with moving, coordinating a big Pepsi event, and re-designing scrap for Terracycle, among other scrappy things.

Wall-e had such an important message with a great delivery. Well, anything in cartoon form gets my attention. This one was particularly well done. Wall-e is the last robot on Earth who's programmed to clean up garbage by compacting and stacking it.

The movie is sending a message about changing the way we live and also giving us hope that we can change. All of the humans were sent to space while robots cleaned the Earth. The humans were huge and floated around all day on hovers and never had to walk. They drank their food. They communicated with the person sitting next to them via the screen right in front of their face.

I won't give away the ending, but will say that what they craved was plant life, swimming, dancing.... earth. All of the things you can't get from a hovercraft or blended drink shake.

yeah, I haven't seen it yet but have heard nothing but good reviews.... (as well as ironic comments about all the Wall-e toys Disney made).

yeah, I wondered if there were lots of Wall-e toys out there. While I know movies make lots of their $ off of licensing their product - should definitely focus on more DIY Wall-e items. Make a Wall-e action figure out of the contents of your recycling bin. In fact, maybe I'll go make one now...
