Any reason? It is one of the better animated features, even with the Disney ending. The dialogue without dialogue is quite well done.

I wouldn't say you missed much. Not that I found it bad, just... 'meh'. And I usually like animated movies.

Actually, I had heard some good things about the movie, but it was the literary connection that provoked the remark. Who would have thought it?

My curiosity is aroused. I may have to rent this.

I'd recommend Wall-E - it's possibly my favourite Pixar pic.

I just read in The Ten-Cent Plague that the very first issue of Mad magazine had a story based on "The Machine Stops," called "Blobs".

yeah, no new ideas, please. Let's debate what the past lecturers said upon the subject

the author was truly prophetic

the constant hum of the Machine? perhaps your favorite incoming message tune. all so differently equal

yeah, I saw the similarities in the differences: the weak are fat instead of thin but equally unmuscular; they are all busy "lecturers" with no time for the real world around them; their audience of isolated fellows is perhaps just to their side or miles away, the cubicles are always moving with their owners on it; mankind abandoned the poluted surface of Earth; guy drops to the ground and expects drones to raise him again; etc

obviously Wall-e also draws from 2001 and Woody Allen (ever got the resemblance?)
