Wall-E: A Pixar Animated Film

Perhaps, as far as I know, Wall-E is the most unexpected and unique movie of the entire Pixar roster. Wall-E might be the most loveable, empathetic robot ever created on film industry. In cartoon marketplace where everything is starting to look and feel the same, Wall-E stands out because it shows a unique identity without losing its appeal to audiences of all ages. Undoubtedly, it is a romantic comedy animated movie where the principals are robots. The movie does not shy away from long passage without dialogue and it does not throw in catchy tunes and dazzling-but-pointless action sequences to keep the younger component of viewers from becoming restless.

The first time I saw the movie, I realized that this is not my typical kiddy cartoon. No pop culture jokes, no instantly recognizable celebrity voices, a decimated, and human less landscape full of garbage towers and decrepit buildings. A lonely hero is trying to learn about humanity and love through centuries of its trash. This is more like a charming, haunting science fiction movie than a children’s movie, because that is exactly what it is. Undoubtedly, Wall-E is one of those recently rare animated movies that adults can attend without children in tow.

Wall-E looks much different from the average Pixar movie. The movie is suffused with browns. The central of Wall-E’s narrative is the romance story between the lead character and EVE. What is amazing about the way these two robots interact is that that the animators are able to humanize them through tiny gestures. Here, Wall-E and EVE intentionally remain alien and robotic. Watching the way in which these two robots interact is the movie’s chief pleasure. The first time, Wall-E is initially fear of EVE, to her exasperation with him when she realizes he has stowed away on board of the spaceship and is creating havoc, to her eventual fear for his safety.

One thing that I cannot stop thinking about this movie, unlike any Pixar movie I have watched, of for that matter any movie. The main character the robot Wall-E has the most curiosity, innocence, and humanity that I have ever seen. Undoubtedly, the movie has proved that Pixar has just begun and to me, has made its spot on the list of Disney’s best.
