- Bordeaux, France.
- old Saab 9-3 coup?
All Christmas Day, I'd been hoping to get Wall-e on Christmas day and hadn't. Then right at the end, "Oh yeah, we forgot to give you this". And it was the DVD.I watched Wall*E over Christmas too (I'd seen it before). I find it way too depressing for a Pixar movie, that's mainly made for children.
The beginning part on Earth is too depressing, and when they go on the Axiom the plot becomes pretty uninteresting and the visuals unattractive. I like Wall*E and the way he looks, but this movie had a pretty bad plot. It's basically just a cute robot doing cute motions and sounds for 2 hours... this would've been good 10 years ago when Pixar's animation by itself blew people away. Now I think people actually look for good stories in Pixar movies, and this didn't have one.
Context : Through the summer I was pretty depressed for various reasons. One day I went to the cinema to see Wall-e and there was something about it - the charm of the character or maybe the way the film just made me feel happy and warm inside - that made me feel so elated.
I've not seen it since but am looking forward to a rewatching.
So basically I don't agree with your opinion; I think the film was great. I liked the fact that there was no dialogue at all for the first third or so; the bleak planet looked fantastic. I'll agree that it wasn't so good when it reached the Axiom, though.
