    Wow, nice catch. I agree.

    I was sort of surprised by that, too. I was rooting for him when he was messing around with the wiring - although, this is a man who can't read well enough to pronounce "manual," so thinking about it again it's somewhat strange that he even knew how to do that. But I didn't think it was really plausible for him to be strong enough to hang onto the co-pilot the way he did.

    On the other hand, I think it's true that if you want to take control of your own life, you have to do it for yourself. I would've found the scene less effective if he'd been rescued by the rogue robots, or Wall-E and Eve. In this case, I think I'm willing to let the message outweigh how likely it was that he'd be able to do it. (Or at least the message that I got out of it.)

    I wondered that too, even though I know I probably should have been paying attention to other things. (The apparent lack of people on the ship was also a bit interesting. It really wasn't all that large of a space ship, so I was wondering where everyone else went...drowned in garbage? Eek.) Anyway, the things I could think of were cloning, or some kind of artifical method. The rest of their technology was pretty advanced, so who knows.

    I think that kind of joke can really work with the right approach. You can see many of them coming from a mile away, but the delivery lets them still be as funny as ever.

    You mean Eve? She's just a career girl. ~__^

    I actually loved how little dialogue there was, particularly at the start. It was amazing to watch how effectively everything could be conveyed. I think what they say is true, about a lot of communication being non-verbal. It was interesting to see it in action.

    Then again, some people hate that. I forget which movie it was (maybe "Stallion" - was that an animated film, vphamv?), but my sister, aunt and I once watched one with a non-speaking horse as the main character. My sister and I got along all right, but my aunt was just lost for the entire thing. I guess it depends on what you're looking for in a movie...I personally found the lack of dialogue at the start pretty engaging, because you have to watch for other cues. I admit I noticed a lot more of them the second time I saw it. ^^
