Pixar Week: Wall-E Review

From the human who brought you the reviews of 8 previous Pixar movies. I'm Linus Schill, and this is my review of Wall-E

Who would have thought that the first half and hour of a movie could have absolutely no dialogue next to the mutterings of a robot. Well there were many things about this movie that are one of a kind. In my personal opinion, this movie is the most realistic future ever portrayed on film. It shows exactly what might happen to humanity if the environment reaches catastrophic levels and forces humanity to abandon the planet. What was left on earth also shows what could happen once the trash levels get out of control. A great little moment of the movie is when the spaceship first takes off, and you see it flying through a thick sheet of satellites and space-junk. Then when you see earth as a whole you see it is slightly foggy due to the millions of pieces of junk.
It is quite amazing that the main character and supporting character can be completely autonomous and have next to no lines. Also it being a pretty sweet love story, BETWEEN ROBOTS. While it is interesting to see what Pixar's look at humanity might turn out to be, the characters themselves are not that interesting, which is fine because they are not meant to be. I find that scene when the captain is discovering all the things about earth both hilarious and kind of depressing at the same time. Its weird to think that the Autopilot was keeping the captain from knowing about the human history. Same also goes for when he is trying to read the book, and doesn't understand how it works. 
Pixar yet again blows me away with the visuals in this movie. Not just the incredible and beautiful galaxies and celestial bodies, but the small things as well. The textures on Wall-E, with the rust and grime and dirt are amazing. Star Wars was one of the first movies to convey robots in a realistic manor. Realistic meaning not just all shine gleam, but rust, wear, and oil. Things that would naturally occur to a metal machine over time. The same is done here in Wall-E. It makes you feel like this robot is real, and that you are in this time period with them. 
Overall the movie is fantastic. It was a great time to see and I advise you do too. I give it 9 ingredients. Thank you for reading my review of Wall-E.
