One of the movies I’m the most excited about this summer is definitely WALL•E. And even more so now that I’ve seen how it’s been received so far. It’s got a 93% rating on Metacritic (based on 35 reviews), 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes (based on 138 reviews) and 9.3/10 on IMDb currently making it the 110th highest rated movie there.
It also did well at the box office:
It tied with 2001’s “Monsters, Inc.” to become Pixar’s third-best opener. Pixar has gone to No. 1 with all nine of its movies, an unprecedented run that begin in 1995 with “Toy Story.”
Why am I not surprised?
We need more Pixar movies… that can risk going into different directions… it’s always lush backgrounds with so-so character designs - I want lushness on both.Dennis:
I guess none of us should be surprised, I mean it is Pixar we’re talking about here after all.
As I haven’t watched the movie yet I can’t really comment on the character designs, but both Wall-E and Eve looked great to me?!
