Tonight for Finer Things Club we had shrimp in white wine sauce (which was a new food for me and was good) and watched Wall-E (2008). Shane and I hadn’t seen it before and both of us really enjoyed it!

What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, Wall-E discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a beautiful robot named EVE. WALL-E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures I’ve seen. The film is a scary and yet realistic view of the future. Shane was hesitant to watch the move because he heard that there wasn’t a lot of talking in it, but he ended up loving it as much as I did. You can’t help but fall in love with Wall-E as soon as you meet him. I very highly recommend seeing this movie. It’s even an instant watch for those with Netflix :)

    I loooooooooooove Wall-E. I actually showed it in class last semester and we talked about how Wall-E does and does not conform to the classic hero standard.

    I love how he says, “Waaalll-eeeee” .. LOVE it. :)

    One of my very manly guy friends introduced me to this movie. He bought a Blu-Ray player when it came out on BR, just for this movie. I was a little shocked, because he’s big, macho, frat guy lawyer-man and here he is RAVING about this cartoon! So I go over and we watch it and before he puts it in he says that it is “one of the greatest love stories of our time.” Hyperbole, much?
    Well, I have to say. I adore it. It’s so sweet, and moving, and touching, and funny…it truly is a love story. I felt like I was holding my breath the entire time, I enjoyed it so. I never even really noticed the lack of dialogue until afterwards…it’s amazing what image and music can convey on their own!

      Haha I love when “tough” guys love cute love stories :) It really was impressive how much you can love a character that doesn’t really speak!
