First WALL•E Reviews Appear [Updated x2]

The first two reviews of WALL•E have appeared online.  The first comes DoomMunky at the Quarter to Three Forums. It’s brief but he says…

The second appears to have come from TAG Blog, but I can’t seem to find it there anymore. However the text was captured. 

Get ready for "Wall-e" then. It is about as far from the "same-old" as you can get. I got to see it last night and it is nothing less than astonishing. A love story with robots that is so emotional and touching. Robots who teach humans how to be human again. And it is the best looking film so far this year of any released or on the horizon. The animation is virtually ALL pantomime—and is so entertaining. I can’t wait to see it again! What an amazing risk Pixar took—and it really pays off in spades.

I’m not sure if I can wait till September to see it now. Very promising reviews.

Thanks to Sid Phillips at the Pixar Planet Forums.

UPDATE: Tannenschnaps at the Pixar Planet Forums points out two more reviews. The first at Project 101 in 1001 and the second at the Sir Steves Guide Forums.
UPDATE 2: Another review  can be found at Collider, and 2 more can be found at Aint It Cool News. Thanks again to Tannenschnaps at the Pixar Planet Forums.

    Hate to break it to you 🙂 Thomas, but I got access to a press screening that’s happening in Toronto, very, very, very soon. Details are forthcoming…

  4. Glad to hear the good reviews! 😀
    I recently watched Prince Capsian (I thought it was really good) and saw the WALL-E trailer on the big screen. Every time I watch it, even small size on the computer, I just love the part where WALL-E is holding on to the moving spaceship in space, and he moves his robot hand through those shiny, bright particle things. I don’t know what they are.. but that part is so so beautiful! My breath just catches every time 🙂
    Not completely on-topic, but I was thinking about it.

    P.S. Does anyone know what the “Forget” checkbox below the comment box is? I have absolutely no idea.

    Honestly, this movie stinks of political propaganda. I went to see “Wall-E” and expected to get my money’s worth — but did not. As a matter of fact I considered demanding my money back. I was gravely disappointed and appalled at its content. It does not measure up to previous Pixar movies. Within 5 minutes, I felt sick to my stomach. It seemed as though I was watching an unrealistic version, even though it was computer animated, of Al Gore’s global warming hoax, “An Unfortunate Truth”. Throughout the entire film, I felt I was being barraged by a propaganda tool as I sat among many families with young children in the theatre. “Wall-E” depicts a dead, life-deprived world of the near future, machines in control of people, and portrays all people as fat, stupid, and irresponsible with no idea of outside issues. It has a very unpatriotic theme designed toward creating an atmosphere of despair, fear, and uncertainty. Pixar should remember that it is a family-geared entertainment company. This film openly and shamelessly presents the desire to be politically correct and passes it off as appropriate entertainment for children.

    Pixar have never pretended to be a company geared towards family entertainment. They make movies for themselves. I think Brad Bird proved this twice with The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

    Best movie I have seen in years.

    I took my younger kids to see Wall-E last night. Contrary to the opinion piece above, it was an excellent movie for children and adults. What IS missing, which is the real irritant to its critics was your typical jewish directed movie bathroom humor, football to the crotch shots, excrement jokes and basic smut pushed toward our youth to further desecrate our society.

    It is the best movie I have seen in five years, hands down. Best animated show I have seen since snow white and the seven dwarfs.

    Best CG movie I have ever seen, period. Not one cuss word or embarrasing moment in the entire movie and the word is out. It will hit huge numbers dispite your transparent motives and distaste. Get over it.

    Wall E seems to be the same character or looks like the same character as Number 5 from the movie Short Circuit
