Meet the Robinsons (2007) – 5/5

Meet the Robinsons (2007)

Maybe it was my state of mind when I saw this or maybe somehow seeing bits and pieces of this over several days and then watching it all the way thru, but I loved this movie.

It had it all: great animation, action, comedy, drama, sci-fi and more. It’s a very complex story too – I think kids wd completely enjoy it, but they might not get all of the implications of the story.

Also the score is really good and there are two songs that are really good. “Another Believer” is very haunting and beautiful.

The animation is some of the most creative and pleasant to look at that I’ve seen. They nail it all especially the facial expressions. So great.

This is a rare movie that pretty much gets it all around in all areas and that is rare for any movie.


I love time-travel related movies and this is no exception. The idea that at the end he doesn’t seek to be w/ him bio-mom is very powerful. He already has a family is his reasoning and now realizes he has to choose. It’s a huge decision and it’s bold to even deal w/ it.

Haiku Summary
orphan wants his mom
to future, has family
picks future, not past
