We got back from watching Pixar’s movie Wall-E and I loved it. Whether you have kids or not, you should see it. We went to the 7pm showing and the crowd was mixed between families with small children, older ones, singles, and young couples.
I look forward to the little cartoon shorts before Pixar films and this one was cute. Wall-E had a great mix of humor and while kids will enjoy it for the cut characters, I think I just loved the attention to detail. The graphics were fantastic. Space has never looked so good in CGI.Each character was funny, touching, insane, or somehow special in his/her/its own way.
If I had to recall a movie that it reminded me of, I’d think E.T, with a very lovable hero. Pixar does a great job of creating Wall-E , even without a lot of dialogue. My one piece of advice:
- Try going matinee to avoid crowds and the extra price for tickets. I was fortunate to sit next to a quiet kid, but I know people who had a movie stink just because of who they sat with.
Bonus double-post (sort of)! Blue Panda’s reaction:
WALL-E is, like most Pixar films, a great movie. It has some very obvious social commentary which stands on its own and so I won’t even go into it.
The film manages to introduce the setting and plot without words in many instances, much like I Am Legend does. The viewer sees what is happening, and it just makes sense. The previews seem to keep a lid on the plot, so I’ll just summarize it as “go see it.”
