Wall-E Review

Wall-E is one of the best movies released this year and probably the best movie yet produced by Pixar. It’s an entertaining, sweet film that tells a complete story with very few words. The animation is detailed, gorgeous and conveys robotic emotion in amazing ways and with sound. I don't really understand how the Pixar team managed it but they took a square robotic trash compactor and made it a fully realized character with as much depth as the traditional 3-D human character would have.

The story itself is pretty simple, the robot is lonely. Another robot comes and a bond is formed and when the she-bot is taken away, he follows her. The result is many amazing and sweet moments around the message of excess waste and human indifference and laziness.

If you do not see any other movie this summer at least see this one. Make sure you see it with a crowd of kids as their joy, giggles, and gasps make the movie that more enjoyable.
