I went on a movie date with The Mom the other day. It was either that Sarah Geronimo/John Lloyd Cruz movie or Wall-E. So (without much thought really), we decided:
Wa-ah-ah-r-llyyyy! Ermm.. Wall-E.
I have to say, it surprised me. I expected it to be like every other Disney/Pixar film — good, funny, the kind of movie you can watch over and over, entertaining. And it was. But wait, there’s more!
I know this word is overused, but the movie was AMAZING. Isn’t it that when you’re seated in the theater, and you’re in awe of the footage, left in raw amazement at every scene, then you can call it amazing? And so, it was.
There was minimal dialogue for the most part of the movie, which I think is one of my favorite aspects. It was the music. Oh, the music. Words weren’t needed as much because the music told everything. It dictated the feel of every single scene.
Music serves as a background to most films, but in this one, music was the storyteller.
I was pleased to discover there was even a message within all this cuteness. Being set 700 years into the future, it shows that we’ve literally trashed our earth. (Wall-E being the only surviving trash compacting robot.) This movie jumped right into the trend of promoting eco-friendliness. (Watch and you will see.) But most importantly, it did so without being annoyingly overpreachy about it. It did it with Wall-E cuteness! Haha. And with Wall-E — cute dorky little robot that he is — essentially telling the story, who wouldn’t listen?
I want my own grubby little Wall-E robot, too. Actually, I want my own little colony of robots!
I’d totally watch this movie again.
And in case you couldn’t tell, the most memorable quote?:
