As regular readers will know I firmly believe the Pixar films to be the greatest film series ever made and when people look back on it in 20+ years time WALL-E will be the jewel in the crown.
Taking in biblical themes, man vs machine, environmental issues and dystopia. Influenced by (and pays homage to) Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Nineteen Eighty-Four and probably loads of other sci fi stuff that I missed.
WALL-E is heartbreaking, inspiring, hilarious and the most adult movie in the Pixar canon. Not just one of the best ‘kids’ movies ever made but one of the best movies ever made and also probably the greatest love story ever told. Absolute genius.
