This past weekend the girls and I drove to Chicago
to visit my sister’s family and celebrate the 4th of July.
Fun times were had by all.
Saturday evening my bro-in-law and I took my two
older kiddies to see the new Pixar movie Wall-E.
I didnt really know what to expect with this
new release.Â I was curious to know how
the new one would fair among the oldies.
How do you top Cars, Finding Nemo and the Incredibles.
Although I have a ton of respect for what it takes to
create art in 3-D (not easy), this one for me – stunk.
The story, that is, stunk up the joint.
The story was … well … there was no story.
There is something about a love story between two robots,
but thats about all I can tell you.
Artwork and sound wise this movie was fantastic.
The one thing I’ll hand them was a politically incorrect
view of how our country will look in the future.
Yes, we have a pulse but thats about it.Â They portrayed
the population- floating around on these electronic lounge
chairs- connected to the net and isolated.Â They are big body
blobs and cant get up if they fall down.
Everything is done for them and they re lazy as hell…
even the golf is played by virtual robots.
“Meal in a cup” is their food of choice. They cant see past their floating clear internet
screen – (ala Star Wars command center-ish).
The way these futuristic people acted reminded
me of Wall Mart shoppers in their food dune buggies -
lazy and impartial to anyone around them.
One funny shot in the movie showed x-rays of how
these people evolved over 700 years.Â The body
structure changed.Â Pretty clever how they showed
the bones spread apart from the excess fatty tissue
in between.Â I guess you ll have to see it.
Bottom line, these people didnt move from their space loungers.
It got me thinking about our current state of affairs.
The movie was supposed to be 700 years hence
and the ironic thing is most of our population looks like these earthlings now.
Key point in all this – stay moving. Dont become a space lardy.
Get up from your chair – even if for only 10 minutes.
This will do wonders for your metabolism and erase stress levels.
