Ax, Animals gets 1/2 our of 5. Not being a huge PF fan...I think that's not too bad. Iespecialy liked the opening and closing tracks a LOT.

Such as the fact that apparently she has a wicked insane crush on Jack Nicholson. Well yesterday she tells me the first time she saw the wall (and mind you, she was completely cold sober when she saw it) she completely and utterly understood everything that was going on. NO ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT

But The Wall is one of my all-time favorite albums GG. I grew up listening to it, so that's a big piece of why, it's very special to me, and when I finally purchased it last year, and heard it for the first time in nearly 10 years, It was one of the greatest musical experiences of my life.


I'm tempted to watch the movie after another glass of "Pepsi"
Wonderful.

I also grew up with The Wall. My dad's a big Pink Floyd nut (he always tells me about how he skipped uni classes to buy The Final Cut on its first day of release) so it's all I ever heard when I was a kid. I definitely think it's overrated, though. Great album, yes, but their best?

Anyway, yeah, NO ONE should be able to understand the movie when they first see it. It took me repeated viewings and a detailed understanding of Roger Waters' childhood to fully appreciate it. Your mother must be a special case.

I'd love to hear your rant, half-cocked or no. I used to be all over the latest Disney/Pixar releases and loved them. I don't know what happened since then, but the last few years I almost feel annoyed about them.

Maybe my tastes just changed, but there's something about them that bug me. Maybe it's me being weird because everyone and their brother tells me it's great and I need to see it, but I just don't want to. I dunno.

I'm weird.

Putting my childhood into perspective, the music that makes me all warm and fuzzy cause I listened to it with my dad?: The Wall, anything Black Sabbath, and Gordon Ligthfoot <?

I have no problem saying The Wall's the best thing I've ever heard from PF and I KNOW that's because I haven't heard much elese

And I will DEFINITELY tell my mom you said that she'll have a good Lawl over that one.

Believe me, it's fantastic. You feel for those damn robots! The second half of the movie does experience a bit of a dip in quality, but the first half more than makes up for it.

Cars was awful. Wall-E is on an entirely different dimension.

Ah, well, that's cool. Also, in my tiredness, I initially read one of your sentences as "not being a huge PFan".
