Wall-e

WALL-E is a computer animated science fiction film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The film, which has a robot as its title character, will be released on June 27, 2008. The film is being directed by Andrew Stanton, whose previous film, Finding Nemo, won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Jim Morris, who previously worked for Lucasfilm, will be the producer. Most of the characters are not voiced by actors, but by mechanical noises combined to resemble voices.

Looks cool. May check it out just cause Pixar rules and they're the best in the industry tech-wise and it has disney for the story. Can't beat that. Forget Dreamworks.

I've been really dissapointed with the Pixar films lately, but this one looks pretty good.

I'll be seeing it for sure.

Here is the new international trailer for those of you that missed the empire trailer. It looks like they are taking it down eveywhere so it probably won't be up long.

I can't wait to see this movie.

Wall-E

I'm shocked to see theres no Wall-E thread in the animation section, I think it's easily the biggest animation movie the year... I may even say the clear Oscar winner for best animated picture. Anyone else looking forward to it?

Yea I'm not normally a huge cartoon fan, but I feel like with Pixar projects I enjoy them just as much as I do any other genre of movie. They do a great job with their stories and jokes.

I was on Yahoo! movies and saw this new video of Andrew Stanton (director) talking a little about Wall-E, I thought it was a good video and helped provide some insight in to the character.

Sorry, it might help if I post a llink
to the video.
What I've been loving in the trailers is the detail that Pixar puts in to the animation, like all the dust and dirt when the spaceship lands on earth, that must take days to animate. This could be one of Pixar's best, along with Toy Story.

Saw Indiana in theatres last night... they played the Wall-E trailer before hand, and it was great to see it up there on the big screen, seemed like the crowd was really about it too, which was nice. The part with the shopping carts got a big laugh.

I caught midnight showing of this the other day, it was really good. The graphics were absolutely amazing, Wall-E is a likable character and the plot of this movie appealed to me more than most other Pixar films.

All in all, I recommend it.

I saw this tonight with my son. It was great. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: I like how the paid attention to the fact that Wall-E would wear out. I didn't agree with the human conditions. I don't think they'd be getting fat like that. Also, I disagreed greatly with the fact that no life was found on any planet except for Earth. Those are trivial scientific nit picks. Though, I may not be clear on what exactly was going on. The eve droids may have been specifically programmed for Earth and I may have misinterpreted what they were doing. But I could have sworn they were exploring multiple planets. Also, the humans would not have been able to walk after being in those chairs all their life. I LOVED the little tiny super roach. He was AWESOME!!! The epitome of arthropod evolution HAHAHA! I really enjoyed the ultra clean atmosphere of the Axiom. The little cleaning bot was awesome. Another thing that didn't cut it...in the future, we will NOT need so many satellites. They will keep expanding their bandwidth and functionality. We will need less and less satellites as time goes on. Also, as time goes on, we will figure out how to disassemble and reassemble matter at the molecular level, just like they do on the Axiom. Which presents another problem with the movie. Why didn't they disassemble and reassemble the waste on earth into useful objects? Like...say....more replicators and bots? It would have been a geometric function as far as cleaning up the planet went. Why was the trash shoot on the Axiom rusty/dirty? You'd think they'd have cleaned that as well. Over 700 years old or not...it would be in the ships best interest.


Sorry for going on and on, I loved the movie. My son sat very still and wasn't distracted at all. That is a testament to Pixar's ability to appeal to both old and young.

Amazing movie. Can Pixar ever do an average movie? (it seems the thought of they making a bad movie is impossible)

I completly loved it. It was great seeing a little robot fascinated by human triviality, and yet be the most human character in the entire movie. The lack of dialogue made it even better. Most animated studios relay on using big names to voice (and promote) their movies, wasting money on it, and not all end up half as good as Pixar Movies do. they accomplish so much with little grunts and mechanical sounds... it's delightful.

I usually hate watching a kid's movie, with kids around me, but for most of the movie, the kids sitting next to me remained quiet.. it was great big grin

I didn't really mind about nitpicks pointed out, but there was something about the ending that bothered me [SPOILER - highlight to read]: how did Wall-E regained his memory?... isn't that impossible?, EVE changed his RAM (or whatever that thing was)confused

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: we have no idea what type of circuit board that was. It appeared to be his control board for energy/solar panels. He might have lost his memory due to a "reboot" type of effect from running out of power. We have no idea. Sometimes, all the bells and whistles running inside of an OS are lost upon reboot. He could still have had all his memories but was running the basic OS (operating system) that comes with the machinery. He obviously has very advanced AI...so there's no telling what happened. One thing I thought about when I noticed he lost all personality after being rebooted...It made total sense as to why he survived all the thousands to million other Wall-E units. He developed some sort of sentience! This would explain his surviving really really well. Being afraid has very real benefits. There are a load of other things about having some sort of sentience that increases survivability such as altruism. Anyway, back onto your question...I figure, since he had all of those memories (data) from his experiences, but only running the basic OS, he needed some sort of imput to restore from his nascent OS to his 700+ year old OS state. That was the "holding hands" input. Very well thought out, as far as computing goes. Very intelligent. I can appreciate something like that since I work with computers. I hope that clears things up.

Very good movie, was well done and had a decent (though pc) message. Good balance of humor and drama.

I think it was his mother board got fried and not his memory chip.
