Wall-E + Eve

  • All you need is love.

  • Something tells me I will be watching this movie again.

  • Is the film preachy? You bet it is.

  • Best use of "La vie en rose" since Billy Wilder's "Sabrina".

  • This is purely anecdotal, but most kids were not terribly excited by the film. Though they all *loved* the lead characters. But I think they will be watching this film again (and again) in a few years' time.

  • At least half a dozen sequences from the film deserve to be on beautiful, glossy posters. Heck, the closing credits of the opening short deserve a poster of their own.

  • Fire extinguishers FTW.

Hey, have you seen 'Saving Pvt Ryan'? Was that 'La Vie en Rose' they were playing on the gramaphone in that busted up French town?

If you haven't seen that movie, then have you seen 'Saving Ryan's Privates'? It's the slightly more risque version, but the action there doesn't quite lend itself to Piaf vocals.

MT: Grrrroan. (The classic in question is, I believe, "Shaving Ryan's Privates")

MockTurtle said...

I apologize. I was speaking only from hearsay and of course you know better.

km said...

MT, you are SO not invited for a private viewing of Masterpiece PrOn Theatre's production of Charles Dickins' "A Sale of Two Titties".

MockTurtle said...

Too bad, I'll just sit on my couch with my popcorn and my DVD of Schindler's Fist.

..and just so you know Savings Ryan's Privates was the original. Shaving was the cheap spinoff (of the cheap spinoff). Ah, the wonders of Google!

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘FLOTSAM’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

MT: Let's just hope little kids don't land up here to read about their new favorite cute robot.

//And I really would like to decapitate Rambhai.
