"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.

Those parts creeped me out kastarte2....but so did the witch, the harpee, the butterfly, the robin hood parade, the bull, that old tyrant guy, and the waves of unicorns. TERRIFYING! Still. And the score was such haunting music. I still remember it. :sing: It's the laaaaaaast unicorn...

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.

Oh, and to go along with what someone else here stated, my friend has a daughter who is 7 1/2. She was so traumatized by her teacher this may about global warming and all the doomsday crap that she isn't sleeping. She wakes up screaming from nightmares, cries when she sees the natural gas derricks that are all over Texas, is impossible to live with with her new conservation fanaticism, and no longer will eat meat. All because of her teachers last hurrah. Said teacher was leaving the profession so she feared no retribution. She said she felt it was her "duty" to tell the kids the truth.

My sis and bil took their kiddos to see this this weekend. Let me preface by saying this, my bil makes me look liberal. Anywho, it can certainly be said that he had some strong disappointment towards this movie.

Okay I saw it today. It was adorable and funny. Yes it's about a post-apocalyptic age...but so it the terminator and mad max. It isn't done in a preachy way and it really is a story about love and courage. Amber: That's hysterical that he hasn't opened them. kastarte2: The Last Unicorn is the scariest thing I've ever seen in my life. To this day it shakes me to my bones. There is something about that kind of animation that freaks me out...same with The Hobbit the cartoon. I can't watch either of them. :scared:

People are going to take seriously a message about the environment given to us by Disney? Do we think the Disney World and Land parks have modest carbon footprints? ;) All children's movies have some sort of embedded message or moral. When I was a child, I watched everything from Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe (the better, animated version) to The Last Unicorn in which a mythical species is nearly wiped out by a big RED bull and an evil tyrant's greed. I didn't realize either of these films had deeper meaning then the entertainment value. This story is something out of nothing. If movie goers are opposed to the message they don't have to sit through it.

It's a sci-fi movie with an extreme view of the future, like every sci-fi movie. Specifically it used consumerism and waste as a backdrop for a love story. It was entertaining and cute. If we don't bring our sense of humor when we go to see a cartoon, what does *that* say about us?

stephley, that's true! I love the neutrality of that story. I'll get Pixar on the phone. They might have the movie out by 2020.
