Meet the Robinsons

I liked the idea behind Disney’s Meet the Robinsons ever since the first trailer I saw for it. Strangely enough, all the kids were doing their own thing and so Karen and I watched this kid’s animation alone.
We enjoyed it very much. The story moves along quickly with a lot to keep interest from flagging. There were some sappy moments (especially the reuse of the “keep moving forward” part of Disney’s quote I’ve put at the end) but this is a much better film than I expect from the modern Walt Disney syndicate. Some elements are easy to predict but there were some surprises for me and that was fun!

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    This is a critical quote for just about everybody. Life will sometimes seem to rise up against us, but we need to keep pressing forward.

    I don’t know that I agree. I think it just describes something obvious for someone who is open to life. But, on the other hand, perhaps it isn’t obvious to everyone. I think what I really object to with Disney was his desire to water and sanitize everything down. Of course he’s dead now so it’s probably not polite to complain.
