Wall*E

Wall*E
Rated G
103 Minutes
Nicole’s Rating: A-


Each year I look forward to seeing the summer Pixar movie and with a sci-fi factor, so I became giddy just to see this.

*~* Warning: Spoiler Alert *~*


Was this my favorite Pixar movie…no, but it was quite entertaining even though it had limited dialogue. Wall*E is just a loveable character who’s curiosity brings you to fall in love with him almost instantly. Plus, like Toy Story, it shows him playing with objects that I grew up with in the 80’s and 90’s which was nostalgic and delightful to me. Eve, who is the love interest of Wall*e’s who comes to Earth in search of her directive. Once it is found she is put into a status lock until the homing ship comes to get her. During her comatose state, Wall*E is taking care of her which shows you many different sides of his personality. Eve’s personality comes out mostly when they reach the home ship and I’ve gotta admit I love to see a kick-ass girl on the screen even in animation. There are a lot of emotions in this film; I even teared up a bit at one point.

There was a couple of things I had issues with the film and they both fit in with political statements the film indicated, not that it’s totally a bad thing, but it needed to be a bit more limited. First was the statement that the humans in the future are all going to be fat, lazy and uneducated about their history. Next was the “green factor” and how we’re destroying the planet. I think it’s because every time I turn around I smacked in the head with becoming more green and eco-friendly. Both are important to be aware of but I don’t care to be bombarded with it during my “get away from live” time at the movies.

Overall this movie was fun, enchanting and highly recommended for anyone.

What's your favorite Pixar movie?

That's a tough one question, but I'm going to say Finding Nemo.

Yeah, Finding Nemo is a good one. I really liked Ratatouille as well; however, I think if you were to ask most people, their favorite would be Toy Story just because it was the first Pixar movie to come out. Wait, I could be wrong about it. I THINK it was the first to be released. :)
