Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Pixar returns again this summer with the tenth feature film - Wall-E. We've been proclaiming this is one of Pixar's best since we first started talking about it over a year ago, but now that it has arrived in theaters, it's time to ask - is it really the best? Is Wall-E the masterpiece that everyone is saying it truly is? Or does the film have some flaws that even Pixar can't get passed. Has Andrew Stanton delivered another film equal to his last brilliant creation - Finding Nemo? There are a lot of big expectations for Wall-E, so the biggest question is if it will live up to that level of hype. Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Wall-E.
To fuel the fire, Wall-E was everything I wanted it to be and more. Almost too much more. I was ever so slightly put off by the annoyingly dumb "fat people" who show up halfway through, but besides that, it was utter perfection. I didn't think it could surpass my enormously high expectations, but it did. Wall-E is a film that can literally be called a masterpiece. It's an example of cinematic storytelling at its absolute finest. Once I realized that most of the movie had hardly any dialogue but that I had come to love Wall-E more than any other character in a movie before, I knew that this was a rare treat. Wall-E is truly near perfection and is one of the finest cinematic creations you'll see in theaters all year long.
What did you think of Wall-E? Is it one of Pixar's best or one of Pixar's worst?
