Wall-E was a delightful movie, with the most endearing characters of the entire stock. What's remarkable is that the main characters never even speak in a traditional sense, only in robotic noises!! If you had told me a few years ago that a Charlie Chaplin-esque sci-fi movie could completely capture my heart the way this one did, i would have been hard pressed not to ridicule you...and yet, here i stand totally attached to this little metal guy. My favorite thing about this film is how reverently it treats its subject matter. What i mean is this; take for example the movie Robots, where the machines in that movie are not even really machines at all but completely anthropomorphic autonomous beings that happened to be made of metal. Wall-E however is a completely functional being, whose personality arises out of that. It's brilliant!! Why would humans program a trash compactor to talk? They wouldn't, so Wall-E must function within his programming, speaking in only simple sounds. I can't go on enough...incredible, just incredible.

Well at last my adventure of Pixar-osity has come to an end. I have laughed, i have cried, i have leapt with joy! It really is simply awe-inspiring to me, that a single studio can have this many good movies in a row, and i really wish that it could go on forever.
