Movie WALL-E (2008)

With less dialogue, the movie focused more on the visual aspects.

I applaud the movie for sending a message about protecting the planet.

Overall, it was a cute and great movie. I would highly recommend it.

On an unrelated note, Ben Burtt, the voice of WALL-E, does sound for movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

Most Memorable Scene: The ship inhabitants become unplugged.

What a beautiful way to tell a romance. It shows to tell you don't need dialogue to tell a wonderful story.

Favorite scene: WALL-E and EVE in space (with the fire extinguisher)

After watching Frozen (2013) on my way home from Minnesota to California, I decided to watch Wall-E.


Instant Comments:
1: It's interesting to realize that WALL-E is one of many.
3: Hehe, they immediately show why this Wall-E unit is still staying strong (recycling parts)
3: The robots look like those from portal
3: Interesting that the electricity is still on in some places though
3: It's also interesting how Wall-E developed a desire to collect objects.
3: The spork goes between the spoon and fork.
3: Haha, the Twinkie.
3: The Mac bootup noise...
3: "Ahh!"
3: Lol, throws away the diamond ring.
3: Oh right, his experience with the fire extinguisher.
3: I guess it's like a cat following a light. (Wall-E follows the red dot.)
3: Awww.... unrequited love...
2a: So cute.
2a: The first "dialogue" at 23 min. "Directive?" "Wall-E" "Eve", 3: "Directive?" "Ta-da! Directive?" "Classified" "Wall-E" "Eve" "Eva"
3: The singing fish! "Listen to a song I wrote, don't worry, be happy"
3: Her interaction with everything... hahaha. Lights up bulb. Solves rubik's cube.
3: We get to see a tape being wound.
3: A very strange romance....
2a: Beautiful space scene
2a: The Axiom inhabitants speaking at 40 min.
3: Wall-E and the Ship of Theseus
3: Pong.

2a: The end titles tells the story of the restoration of the planet with artwork that progresses through history. Then when the credits roll, we start with EVE and WALL-E. Then MO follows WALL-E's tracks. Various references to the movie are made. Oh and there's the cockroach. And various other robots, such as AUTO. Then when the PIXAR logo appears at the end, the lamp goes out and WALL-E replaces it. He leaves but knocks over the R. So he himself forms an R. Then the BNL logo appears at the very end of the movie.

Presto: Theatrical Short
2b: While not as great a short as the most recent Day & Night, it was lightly humorous.

BURN-E: All New Original Short
2b: Follows a BURN-E unit which is a side story that runs parallel to the main movie.

Animation Sound Design: Building Worlds From The Sound Up
2b: This feature covers the sound in the movie, and the sound, as explained during the introduction, is of utmost importance in this movie.
2b: Haha! Wow... Awesome (EVE's laser gun sound)
2b: The feature goes through some of the older things that have been done.
2b: Wow... watching this feature is so enlightening. Props to Ben Burtt and sound designers in general.

Deleted Scenes:
2b: There are two deleted scenes. The first scene, "Garbage Airlock," would change the direction of the ending of the film. The movie as it is has a more dramatic touch, but this deleted scene is definitely interesting to watch. The second scene, "Dumped," I guess would have been in place of the fire extinguisher scene.
