Okay, so I just got back from the midnight showing of WALL-E and it was FANTASTIC! Although the Pixar films are obviously new, I wanted to devote a post to these films since they are classics. WALL-E was completely endearing and had a very strong message throughout. While some will probably complain that this message is too blatant and obvious, I think that since it is rated G, simple and honest is best. Plus, there are plenty of subtleties that may escape children for those snobs who may find this movie too simple. Ratatouille is one of my all-time favorite movies. It is sweet and hopefully and very clever. Monster's Inc. (along with the other two I just mentioned) is my other favorite. It is one of the most unique and creative movies I have ever seen. It is hilarious and if I had to choose, it would be at the top of my Pixar list. I also thoroughly enjoyed A Bug's Life and of course Finding Nemo was incredible. Both of these films featured loving and determined characters who never give up. While I was not really impressed by The Incredibles, I thought Toy Story II was even better than the first. Cars is also very humorous and includes some lovable characters. All in all, these are some of my favorite films; Pixar continues to impress me over the years. I remember seeing Toy Story in theaters with my dad and sister when I was young. Ever since, I have eagerly anticipated each new Pixar endeavour. I was so touched by Wall-E that I actually cried. If you have not seen these films, I urge you to do so. They reach a level that traditional animation failed to touch.
