Wall E

14 Aug

Ok this show is a must watch! definitely awesome!

Spoilers!

This animation follows the story of a robot named WALL·E(Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class), the last ‘living’ robot designed and mass built originally to clean up a polluted and uninhabitable Earth.

Being alone all it’s life has granted it sentience and emotion. Its only companion, a cockroach(a rather resilient one too) follows it where ever it goes

EVE(Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator), is a more sophisticated and advanced robot sent from the spaceship AXIOM(which now houses the all humans until Earth gets cleaned up.. ..cleaned up? heh heh?) to see whether Earth is inhabitable.

They met and the story begins.(they will NOT be confined to Earth. hahahaha)

My views

Pixar, once again has done it again. Great job! awesomely fabulous! Tells the ‘save the Earth’ story without all the rubbish hambalang irritants. But I guess that’s just the secondary objective, Love is still the number one message in this show.

Some interesting tidbits

WALL-E received near-universal acclaim from film critics. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 97% of critics gave the film positive reviews, based upon a sample of 200 reviews, with an average rating of 8.6/10. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the film has received an average score of 93, based on 39 reviews.

Andrew Stanton conceived WALL-E before Toy Story was made.

Sigourney Weaver as the Axiom’s computer.

MacInTalk sounds were used for Auto, the Axiom’s internal autopilot, built into the ship’s steering wheel.

EVE’s design was inspired by the sleek, white versions of Apple, Inc. products such as the iPod.

Most of the characters do not have actual human voices, but instead communicate with body language and robotic sounds, designed by Ben Burtt, that resemble voices. In addition, it is the first animated feature by Pixar to have segments featuring live action characters.

Some of the ‘robotic sounds’ used were made using Plaintalk and WALL·E’s recharge tone was taken from Macintosh’s start-up tone.

The film is the first in Pixar’s movies to have a localization for other countries. Each writing is translated in the local language.

As of July 2008, WALL-E holds the record for the highest production budget of any Pixar film at $180 million.

WALL-E ranks the third highest-grossing opening weekend for a Pixar film as of July 2008.
