Miss Athena Does Not Approve of Your Gauchery

“No, sir! I do not approve!”
Miss Athena and I are now off, to go see Wall-E. For the sake of the people sitting behind her, she will not be wearing that hat.
For a moment there, I thought my color balance was borked.
Lisa and I just got back from Wall*E. Hope you and Athena enjoyed it as much as we did.
The funny thing is,she has that Emily Post disapproval look down pat.
Hope you enjoy the movie kiddo.
Excellent movie! Enjoy!
That is all.
That movie was great. I believe you both will enjoy it.
Wall-E was great, right up there with the best of Pixar, IMO.
And now, I’m off to the Home Depot to get a pizza plant…
Pizza plant? As in a plant that grows pizzas? Shoot, pick me up three.
Hopefully, it’s not too gauche for me to covet the hat.
Hehehe, she’s awesome. I mean, do you know how hard it is to give that look while peeking through your star-shaped sunglasses?
Also, Wall-E reminds me too much of Short Circuit! I must go see it.
I think it’s great they got that guy from Apple to design Eve. She really looks just like something I’d imagine Apple would design in the future.
…only with better weapons.
My son had a rollicking good time watching Wall-E as part of a birthday party this afternoon. Now, the rest of us have to go. LOL
Just wait, John, soon she will discovery the joy of paisley (the pattern, you mooks), and then the world will truly tremble.
I’m amazed Wall-E got made. And I’m reveling in the irony of Wall-E merchandise at Buy-N-…er, Wal-Mart.
I liked it. Plot’s a bit thin, perhaps, but it’s fun enough that I didn’t mind.
So John, what did you and you daughter think of the movie?
I’m still amazed that people complained about Cars – I thought it was great, though my favourite is still Monsters, Inc. The Toy Story movies are somewhat overrated compared to Monsters, Inc., I think, but still great. I actually preferred the second one. I think Toyota turning Pixar down to be the manufacturer of the pizza delivery guy’s truck wound up inspiring one my favourite jokes in the movie. The truck is apparently in one of the junk heaps in Wall-E, but it went by too fast for me to see it, even knowing it was in there.
Willy: We both enjoyed it very much.
I loved it. I found myself with a silly grin about halfway through the movie, and it stuck with me for a couple of hours.
I think it’s the best love story I’ve ever seen.
I also quite enjoyed the short before it, Presto. It was a very interesting departure from the normal Pixar style, and quite reminiscent of old Bugs Bunny stuff, only using the Trix rabbit as the star. :)
I could REALLY have done without seeing the trailer for “Beverly Hills Chihuahua.” UGH.
And to #18 – the best love story ever told is clearly the Princess Bride, but Tromeo and Juliet is a close second for me. :)
It must have been take your daughter to see Wall E day….
OK my wife tagged along also. And my daughters friend.
But man…that movie was great!
Loved the Buster Keaton homages in the first half, and the Titanic and 2001 allusions in the second half. Also, the Mac “Bong” as Wall-e’s power up sound nearly had me rolling in the aisle.
That’s Athena? I thought Elton John had stopped by your house to visit…..
WALL-E was so awesome! hehe Pizza plant :)
I went and saw the movie on Saturday with my girls. The movie theatre gave out cheap and plastic, made-in-China WALL-E watches that served as a promotional gimmick for that stupid talking dog movie coming out soon.
After sitting through the movie, I really had to laugh that they went that route. Why not give out a package of seeds or something instead?
I guess that would require brains.
I loved the movie though. It was fantastic.
Yeah – pizza plant seeds would’ve been a great giveaway! (which really just grow basil)
anyone else notice the pizza planet truck in the movie.
