An Earth filled to the brim with garbage, yet it’s so freaking gorgeous!
Day 24 – Your Favorite Animated Or Children’s Film
WALL·E (2008, Andrew Stanton)
Hopefully at this point my mission of never using a film twice has become obvious, but if it hasn’t, there you have it. All the films I’m using fit the categories I’m putting them in, but the further along the list I get I’m having to skip a film here or there to get to a new one, just a quick FYI.
Where do I begin with WALL·E? It’s a film I have yet to write about for the site, and I can’t wait to get to it, that’s a fact. WALL·E is one of my go to movies, it’s the film I tout as the best animated movie of all time. What allows WALL·E to connect with me so well is the relationship between the titular character and EVE. WALL·E is gorgeously animated, it’s story is interesting and its thematic depth is astounding. Yet all those hyperbolic superlatives take a back seat to the simple and charming love tale of two robots. Call me a sap all you want, but a great love story gets to me quite easily. While the title for this day may be stupid (great animation does not always correlate with great children’s film), I’ll take any chance I can to sing the praises of WALL·E.
