WALL-E

God knows I really wish I remember watching this film.  As it were, I can’t remember very well since I had just had surgery and was enjoying (perhaps a little too much) my oxycodone prescription when I saw ‘WALL-E.’

Maybe it’s for the best as I’m usually a naysayer when it comes to animated films.  I didn’t so much enjoy ‘Toy Story’ or ‘Monsters Inc.’ I did like ‘The Incredibles’ a whole lot.  That movie was great.  It’s this hit-and-miss record that made me nervous to pay money to see PIXAR’s latest.

I do remember enjoying myself.  I remember vague references to ‘E.T.’ and Kubrick’s ’2001: A Space Odyssey.’  I also remember a whole lot of fat humans.  Even through my hazy, pain-killer high, I saw the ruthless satire of an indulgent society bent on ruining earth in favor of watching some sort of screen (tv, computer, iPod, etc.).  Had I not been so relaxed, I probably would have been annoyed at PIXAR judging me, but at the time it seemed fitting, deserved, and terrifically entetaining.   I remember laughing at WALL-E and his comical adventure that eventually returns all the fatso humans back to earth to clean up the mess they left.

So, yeah.  I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed this movie with my Percocet, but it was vastly entertaining.  You haven’t been this endeared by a robot since…ever.

★★★½

    Wall-E is the best movie I’ve seen this year! Granted, I haven’t seen The Dark Knight yet, so I’ll keep you posted. In any case, you should be able to see its magnificence even through a drugged haze. Maybe another viewing will bring it back.
