Pixar is at it again. Remember the old days when Disney just kept on releasing animated movies. After each Disney movie, you find yourself waiting for what would they come up with for the next one. The movie even gets better everytime (Little Mermaid, and then Beauty & the Beast, then came Aladdin and after that, Lion King, my favourite one). Nowadays, Pixar is doing that type of thing for the new generation. Sure, Disney is involved but it takes the talent of the Pixar guys to come up with Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Ratatouille. Just like the series of animation that Disney did in the early 90s, it gets better with each movie.
This year it’s Wall E and I cannot wait for this movie. I don’t know why but I just have this feeling that this is going to be one of those memorable movie. And I got that vibe only from watching the trailers!!

I remember when I first saw Finding Nemoin theatres. I expected it to be just another enjoyable animation. But damn, I left the theatre feeling good about myself and humming that “somewhere beyond the sea” tune. No other Pixar animation gave me that feeling (Ratatouille and Incredibles were cool but didn’t quite give me that ‘feeling’ after watching it). I think I finally found the movie that could repeat those feeling.
Here’s the synopsis:
What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off?Academy Award®-winning writer-director Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo”) and the inventive storytellers and technical geniuses at Pixar Animation Studios (“The Incredibles,” “Cars,” “Ratatouille”) transport moviegoers to a galaxy not so very far away for a new computer-animated cosmic comedy about a determined robot named WALL•E.
After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL•E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL•E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL•E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen.
Joining WALL•E on his fantastic journey across a universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future, is a hilarious cast of characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.
Filled with surprises, action, humor and heart, “WALL•E” was written and directed by Andrew Stanton, produced by Jim Morris, co-produced by Lindsey Collins and features original and innovative sound design by Academy Award®-winner Ben Burtt (“Star Wars,” “Indiana Jones,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”).
