WALL-E Most Definitely Kicks Off The Oscar Season!

Joey here...i've already seen it twice and it's by far one of the 5 best cartoons i've ever seen in my life. If the Academy makes it eligible, I can't believe it won't be a strong choice to wind up with a Best Pic nom. Believe the hype ladies and gents, WALL-E stole my heart and soon he'll collect yours as well for his collection. See it now and thank me later!

    I couldn't agree with you more, man. It's only other rivals in the cartoon world (for me) are other Pixar gems, so I'm fairly certain Pixar is controlled by God.

  2. I saw it the other night. It is indeed one of the best animated films I've ever seen. The only problem is that if you decide to watch it anytime this weekend at around 8ish, little kids will be there and they will annoyingly eat popcorn.

    Aside from that, the ode to Space Odyssey was a beauty to watch! Kubrick's influence spreads...

  3. I completely agree. Wall-E was stunning.

  4. I saw it once in the land of children, and once late at night, so i got both ranges...the kids add a nice commentary to it at points, especially in the last sequence, but at other times they can be a pain...though the same goes for adults....point being, the film is magical...enough said

  5. People need to stop taking small children to movies, even if they are rated G, unless they can be quiet. Completely quiet! There was little dialog in "WALL-E", so any interruptions didn't bother me too much. But still, don't take anyone under 8 to the theater (unless they are very mature), and even older kids you should think about. I loved the film by the way. Any talk about a message is nonsense. Sure, there is one, but it's intertwined with the story. "WALL-E" is a masterpiece. It's one of the best animated films I've ever seen, one of the best sci-fi, and one of the best (maybe THE best) love stories ever. Long live Pixar!

  8. I just saw it, and I am definitely rooting for a Best Picture nomination. It deserves it. The was easily one of the single most moving love stories I've ever seen.

  9. Wow.

    I usually never go for this sort of thing (though I did enjoy The Incredibles and Ratatouille), so it was with mild reservations but an open mind that I went to see this with my kid brother. And Oh My God. What an incredible film. The word masterpiece springs easily to the tougue, and is perfectly justified. If there is a movement to move it beyond Best Animated Feature into Best Picture, I would be behind it.
