Since many of the reviews here have more words in them than the actual movie, I'll keep this short.
From a purely technical perspective, WALL-E deftly weaves together a future-looking tale about post-consumerism-trashed Earth, emotional intelligence in robots, and the rule of the evil corporation in keeping us fat and ignorant.
However, that's the technical part - the non-technical part is that the adorable WALL-E is yet another in the long line of Ugly Duckling's in Disney/Pixar's past who reminds us yet again that love can come in any form, and even from a beaten-up but spunky little trash-collecting robot.
It is worth noting that if you need things to constantly be exploding and tons of trite dialogue and "I saw that coming from Mars" plots/cliches, this movie might be challenging to sit through because it requires empathy and attention to non-verbal/non-exploding details and emotions that are expressed/implied, not spoken or blown up.
Thoroughly enjoyable, can't wait for the Blu-Ray release.
Pixar has come of age my friends. Pixar has never made a bad movie, in fact I'd consider almost all of them to be a masterpiece, but none of them, before now, have tried to be anything more then emotional family affairs, not that there is anything wrong with that, but they weren't necessarily deep, meaningful beyond personal issues, or revealed anything about our society. Now, I say again, there isn't anything wrong with that, but Wall-E goes beyond … more
pixar wins again...like they always do. With barely any, if not any, spoken dialogue in this movie but some beeps and sounds that only come from things you can purchase at best buy, it still captivates you and I'm not gonna lie def made me cry..one tear...I work out
WALL-E is a 2008 computer-animated science fiction film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and directed by Andrew Stanton. It follows the story of a robot named WALL-E who is designed to clean up a waste-covered Earth far in the future. He eventually falls in love with another robot named EVE, and follows her into outer space on an adventure that changes the destiny of both his kind and humanity.
After directing Finding Nemo, Stanton felt Pixar had created believable simulations of underwater physics and was willing to direct a film largely set in space. Most of the characters do not have actual human voices, but instead communicate with body language and robotic sounds, designed by Ben Burtt, that resemble voices. In addition, it is the first animated feature by Pixar to have segments featuring live-action characters.
Walt Disney Pictures released it in the United States and Canada on June 27, 2008. The film grossed US$23.1 million on its opening day, and $63 million during its opening weekend in 3,992 theaters, ranking #1 at the box office. This ranks as the fourth highest-grossing opening weekend for a Pixar film as of May 31, 2009. Following Pixar tradition, WALL-E was paired with a short film, Presto, for its theatrical release. WALL-E has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews among critics, scoring an approval rating of 96% on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
It grossed $534 million worldwide, won the 2008 Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature...
