Wall-eeeeeeee

I went to see Wall-E last night. It was one of the most tender love stories I've ever seen, as well as being very funny, insightful, and visually amazing. It certainly goes in the top three Pixar movies ever, with "Finding Nemo" and "Toy Story" holding the other slots. I'm not even sure which order they'd go in, but I do know that "Wall-E" demands another viewing. So much happens in the background, I know there's a hundred gags I must have missed. And it all ends up with a really excellent, new Peter Gabriel song.

I've just woken (scandalously late) from a dream in which I said to myself with perfect sincerity, "Oh, I'm having one of my anti-gravity days." Which apparently was not all that unusual. In the dream I was away at a boarding school, but also working on a patching tool for Solaris to pitch to Sun Microsystems. Other themes in the dream included finding a book written by J.K Rowling I hadn't read before, getting lost in the tunnels behind the school, and jumping along the sides of them and pulling myself along without ever touching the ground - prompting the aforementioned thought. And somehow this all ended up with me running around naked on the school grounds.

We saw WALL-E this morning; I believe it to be the most touching Pixar movie yet. This one is my new favorite - I don't know how they do it, but they top themselves each time.

I tend to like the way Pixar delivers its messages in movies - not exactly subtle, but I don't find them to be preachy either.

And yes... I teared up at different points throughout, but I bawled near the end when Eve finished doing her thing but wasn't sure she was successful. (I don't think that'll give anything away to anyone).

Another great Pixar movie.

I cried like a schoolgirl at exactly the same moment. And I agree - they manage to have a point to the movie, to make a statement, but to deliver it with such wry humor and sincere hope for the goodness of people, that it doesn't stick in your craw.

We saw it last weekend, and I adored it. It is my new favorite Pixar.
