At the end of this
movie, I kept thinking what monument will be built to remember
“Rodney” who was a champion “For all old and outdated robots?”
From a wealthy
robot’s point of view—poor commoners—they’ll never be able to
overthrow us. We own them,
their media, everything. We’re
the reasons they have paychecks. We’re
rich because we work and think ten times as hard—or for the lucky
ones—inherit ten times as much—so the thinking may sometimes falls
through the cracks and can’t distinguish the difference between good and
From the Commoner’s
point of view—yeah, Rodney! We
love you! Our leader! Together
we can storm the “castle” and remind the powerful robots in them that
we’ve had enough! We’ll
continue being like Rodney’s dad and do the dishwashing and be the
“worker bees,” but up to a point. Rodney! We’ll follow
you! If you want us to cause
civil disobedience instead, we will! Your monument will stand next to Gandhi!
--This initial reaction
to this movie may seem a bit stretched, because after all, it is a kid’s
movie. Sometimes it can’t
be helped and an adult spin needs to be added to it.
Go see this visually
beautiful movie with its "why be you when you can be new"
storyline. There are many things about the movie to take with you.
