WALL•E, a review by RossRoy


WALL-E
WHAT THEY SAY


MY THOUGHTS
What a marvelous movie! Entirely deserving of all the praise it got. It is actually incredible how Pixar can get so much emotions through, even when the characters don't speak. Prime examples here are Wall-E, EVE and that cleaning robot. But if you go back in the history of Pixar, just look at their Luxo short. It's a lamp! But just the way it moves, and you understand everything you have to. And they just keep perfectionning their technique. It's astounding how Pixar can keep churning out winners after winners. The guys love their craft and it shows.

I loved every minute of Wall-E! It's such a nice story and it is told so well. So many little things add up to create a whole. Just the dancing sequence. It is so pretty to look at, and it holds so much meaning for Wall-E, him who evolved for so long, alone, on a desolate Earth, listening to dancing numbers from musicals!

Watch this movie. It is well worth it. It is top notch cinema. Too bad so many artists lost their way and are now churning out money grabbers these days.. Thank God Pixar is still around with their care and love of cinema.

Plot:
My Thoughts:
What we have here is to tell it simply the best movie directed by Lustig (don't forget that he is responsible for Maniac, Maniac Cop and The Violation of Claudia). This movie had probably one of the best opening of the cinema history (some will certainly said that I exaggerates as usual) with a great speach by Fred Williamson. The characters even if they are establish fastly aren't caricature and you care and root for them. Great acting from Robert Forster, his performance is just incredible and feels real. Fred Williamson is as good as usual and you get a small cameo by the always appreciated Joe Spinell. The instrumental theme song is powerfull and awesome (when you hear the first note later it doesn't take you long to understand that Eddie Marino is in revenge mode). Well written script that doesn't give you a chance to take your breath. Frankly one of the best american revenge movie ever made...

Great eighties movie that you must watch if you want to see the greatness of the American independant cinema before it was put to death by the disapearance of the independant movie theatre and the drive in.

The last few days I did have a Sabrina marathon, watching the last few seasons which were still in my unwatched pile. The last episode was actually cut together from the last two episodes. This is noticable, because the two half do not have a common story. The only episode of the last few seasons I ever saw before was the very last one. Even though I had stopped following Sabrina in the fourth season when it first aired on German television, I was curious about the finale. It is a good conclusion to the series.
