Weekday Wrap Up (Wall-E Review)
Hello and good evening, fellow CAG's. Starting tonight, I will begin reviewing different games, movies, CD's, and products. Some of which I will watch/play/listen/use on my own free will, some I will review on your recommendation, and some I will review because of how god awful it is [see: The Love Guru]. I hope for your feedback (good or bad) and for your help on things to review.
I'll start off this series by reviewing one of the best movies I've seen this year and maybe best animated movie ever, Wall-E.
Even after seeing trailer after trailer of this movie over the past few months, I couldn't find myself getting excited about Wall-E. Why would anyone want to watch a G-rated animated version of "I Am Legend?" However, Disney Pixar (and my girlfriend) somehow proved me wrong.
The first time you see Wall-E interacting with something, without actually speaking nonetheless, is amazing. You can watch the whole movie and believe that Wall-E has been talking with different robots the entire time when he actually only has 4 words to his vocabulary. The time the studio must have taken with perfecting this tiny trash-compacting robot's body language is unthinkable.
Wall-E begins with the robot building life size skyscrapers with the blocks of trash he makes. This is all he knows, seeing as how he is the only being left on Earth and has been for the past 700 years.
That all changes when Eve, a unit sent by the humans from space to check for life, sees Wall-E and falls in love.
This movie, however, isn't just another usual Pixar showing. Wall-E is a hilarious satire of the way humans are now and how they will be living in the future. Showing all the humans as fat and lazy, riding EVERYWHERE in hoverchairs and drinking all their meals blended up, isn't exactly a huge exaturation to think of in the next 90 years.
Not since The Bourne Ultimatum have I left the theater so happy and feel-good, knowing I've seen a complete movie and not some half-assed stoner flick [read as: Harold and Kumar 2]
Full of laughs and comedy for more than just kids, Wall-E is an animated masterpiece, a classic for years to come. I give this movie 9 out of 10 stars and my highest recommendation.
