Fucky Film Review!

Wall-E

Andrew Stanton 2008

I don’t particularly like animated features, but I’d read a lot of good things about WALL-E. And I felt totally cool sipping a drink at a local bar with a Disney film in my pocket. I kept hoping someone would ask me what I was doing later, so I could just pull it out and say, I’m going to open a bottle of Chardonnay and watch an animated love story about two robots. The movie lived up to all that I’d read. It’s about as good a child’s movie as I can ever remember seeing. And the closing credits are beautiful – it’s worth watching just for them. There’s also a super interesting bonus documentary on the DVD about the important role that sound design played in the film. Ben Burtt did the sound design – he got his start on STAR WARS doing R2D2 and you can hear it all the way through.  The doc also featured a bunch of great old sound machines made for Disney in the 40’s, and discussed the relative merits of original sound design versus recording.

    Glad you loved the movie, but I’m about sick and tired of animation being referred to as a “child’s movie”. If that’s the case The Dark Knight is a child’s movie too, after all we all know only children read comic books (hey, don’t look at me, that’s how many older people think).

      Matt! I agree that not all animation is for children. And from what I’ve seen comic books can be VERY ADULT. All true. Here I was referring specifically to this movie which was made by Disney, rated G, and marketed as a movie to bring your kids to.
