"Two Tickets For Wall-E Leftist Propaganda, Please." Possible?

"Two Tickets For Wall-E Leftist Propaganda, Please." Possible?

Heading out to the movies this holiday weekend? If your "two tickets, please," is for last weekend's #1 flick, Pixar's Wall-E, you might be getting a jumbo bucket of leftist propaganda with your price of admission. But it's a cartoony-thing, right?! But it's a cartoon-y thing with an apparently serious leftist message.

The National Review's global-warming blog says “it was like a 90-minute lecture on the dangers of over consumption, big corporations, and the destruction of the environment.” Oh! That sounds like a cute and funny movie! What??

But wait, there's more! Glenn Beck says, "I just see Wally and he's on the Earth and he's cleaning stuff up and I looked at my wife and I said, it's a frickin' global warming movie, it is how we destroyed the Earth." Over at Dirty Harry's Place (a conservative look at film, punk) Harry says of the Pixar tale, "they stop things cold, yanking you out of the story with the liberal nonsense. Quite a disappointment. Anyway…"

Lars Larson was on with Dan Abrams backing all of this up, saying it gives "little kids the idea that human beings are bad for planet Earth." At Townhall, they agree with the propaganda claim, but say it's "actually a brilliant exposure of liberalism’s flaws."

Is all of this possible out of a cartoon? Is Wall-E propaganda in the world's cutest package?

Check out Buzz's brilliant review for more info on the plot and characters — and hey, 4.5 out of 5 stars ain't bad!

"is the fact that we are wasteful (yes, FACT) really a liberal bias?" Seriously. This is just silly. "Bambi has an anti-hunting message, Mulan's all about feminism, Beauty and the Beast is about tolerance, 101 Dalmatians is totally pro-animal rights, the Lion King is about diplomacy over strength and no conservative should read Dr. Seuss if they're sensitive to liberal propaganda." Every movie has a message. Ultimately it's up to you to accept or reject that message. If there were subliminal messages to vote democrat, I might see a reason to object, but this is dumb.

Has anyone seen "The Last Mimsy" - that stuff is obvious propaganda, but very cute nonetheless.

`4 m` Did it work? The music is haunting.."here i am walking man's road..." I think it was performed by that band America. The canrival part was really scary and also sad. All those animals caged with glamours on them so no one can see their pain, all those people being duped into believing they are looking at miracles. A while ago I heard they were planning a live action version. I think it will be just as creepy as the animated one. Especially since Jonathan Rhys Meyers is supposedly playing schmedrick. JRM is creepy, in a not way but still creepy.

Harmony, The hobiit cartoon and Lord of the Rings cartoon scared me too! But I loved the last unicorn because I had a BIG thing for unicorns. '4m' Although parts of that were terrifying too. Anything in the castle was totally scary. The drunk skull and talking cat? Wicked creepy.
