Finally got to see Wall-E

I finally got to see Wall-E!

In a!!! I had extremely high expectations going in, and they were totally blown away. It really seems apparent to me that Pixar are in a whole other category to any other 3d filmhouse at the moment. Their ability to create memorable characters and tell a wonderful story are second to none.
Without doubt the character of Wall-E is one of the cutest, most endearing and memorable characters to come along in a long while. The design feat in itself to get such expression and personality in such a minimal character is astounding.
The story is definitely where Pixar shine though. Its a mature, almost adult theme told with a childlike magic and niavette.It really is a beautiful tale and serious kudos have to go out to Pixar for having the bravery to take a punt on the idea of having virtually no human speech dialogue for almost the first hour. It would've been a massive risk and props definitely should be given to the visionaries at pixar and also the decision makers for making such a bold decision.
I highly recommend anybody go see this film. Recapture some of that childhood wonder and open yourself up to an endearing and thoroughly enjoyable cinema experience!
