Everyone in America needs to re-watch WALL-E
We’re not heading towards the direction of WALL-E; we’ve arrived. Save for being up in space, we are completely here. It is IMO Pixar’s best, masterful, and most important movie. How is this message from Microsoft and the LA teacher’s union any different than when WALL-E arrives on the Axiom? Maybe we’re not that fat yet, but that’s really it.

I remember some idiotic right wingers got pissed at this movie when it was released since they got the dumb and wrong idea the movie was about climate change when it really isn’t (save for saying don’t trash the planet). These days though it would be the left wingers that would get pissed for targeting fat people and not do as you’re told. I’ll be surprised if Disney+ doesn’t put a warning label on this film by the end of the year saying the film has dated views and say it’s fat-phobic, if not take it off there entirely and treat it like Song of the South.

WALL-E is a movie that is so fricking masterful that this movie could have been made in a foreign language with no subtitles, and you perfectly understand everything that’s going on. The moral of the story needs to be shared far and wide and it’s the thing you’re being told by the government is the worst thing you can do.

re: Everyone in America needs to re-watch WALL-E
There’s some great old threads about Wall-E in the archives of this place. We picked that thing apart for months. People were so mad because of the tone that if we don’t start taking care of the planet we’ll all end up as fat slobs on personal scooters.

I mean the point was be responsible with your trash and some idiots were offended when it was suggested that we shouldn’t pollute the oceans by throwing plastic into it. How is that a bad message? Yeah, you shouldn’t do that.

The music is amazing and it’s crazy that it goes 30+ minutes without any dialogue.

I tear up every time during "Define Dancing".

I have Toy Story, Coco, and Ratatouille as my top 3 Pixar movies (in no order), with all 3 only a hair over Wall-E and Monsters Inc.

Yeah, it's not fun - it's a documentary from the not so distant future.

re: Everyone in America needs to re-watch WALL-E
The first 40 minutes of Wall-E are as good as anything I've ever seen. It truly is Pixar's apex.

Some will say that 9 minutes in Up!, but the rest of the movie falls short of what Wall-E does.

Wall-E not only pulls of basically a silent film mixed with Cinemascope-era epics, mixed with 20th century sci-fi masterpieces of Star Wars and Blade Runner, but it also is as predictive and visionary to the likely actual future as anything.

The likes of Pixar in the '00s will never be seen again. They made art and filmmaking at its highest levels. But it's best run was 07-09.

Rattatoulle, Wall-E, Up!, all in consecutive years. Unreal.

re: Everyone in America needs to re-watch WALL-E
One of my favorites as well and I remember bashing it originally on here too.

I love everything about the movie except opening his chest in space to show eva the plant. Come on. Freezing space would have killed it instantly. I know it's a cartoon but everything on the physics side was done so well that this scene always bothers me since he went through so much to protect it

Other than that it's damn near flawless and my kid watched it 100x.

re: Everyone in America needs to re-watch WALL-E
to be fair I've been consistent in bitching about the plant-in-space scene.

Eta I watched it about 100x since that last post and it's grown on me every time. My little boy loves this movie.

I confess my sins bitching about this movie.

WALL-E and Inside Out are peak Pixar IMO

Funny I just mentioned it yesterday on here, wondering why Auto didn't just stop the EVE program and probes entirely if he had a secret protocol to never take them back to Earth.

I’m not surprised. Have you been to Hopedale, Delacroix, anywhere with water in south LA? People have no regard for the outdoors in our state. Amazing considering it may be the premier fishery in North America.

re: Everyone in America needs to re-watch WALL-E
WALL-E is a masterpiece IMO. I love everything about it and try to watch it at least once a year.

It's funny, looking back, how the message of not letting consumerism through a megacorporation like Buy-N-Large govern our lives was clearly targeted at Wal-Mart. Now, over 10 years later, it's actually Amazon that is the closest thing to Buy-N-Large, and there is no sign of it slowing down.

I really hope this movie doesn't get any sort of cancel treatment, but I could definitely see it being labeled as "fat-phobic" and "ableist" in the near future.

I own this movie and watch it all the time. Thomas Newman’s score is brilliant, and if you listen close, this motif has a chord change that is the same as Peter Gabriel’s “Down to Earth” (co-written by Newman) on the credit roll. I’ve always wondered which came first in the process.

Also, I swear during Eve’s little montage scene of not finding any plant life she says “frick” before slamming a door shut.
