I saw this movie for the second time just recently. The first time I saw it was in a movie theatre. During both times, I had a very enjoyable movie watching experience. When it comes to kids movies, Disney is among the best!

What I think is so awesome about this movie is its ability to tell a story through visuals, not using too much dialogue. During the first part of the movie, I was amazed at how there was no dialogue at all and how much the movie captured my attention. The music and the visuals were enough to keep me watching.

The movie communicates emotion and feeling through much of the music and visuals presented. Though, there is some dialogue during the second part there's not that much and that's why I think it makes for such a good film.

In the early days of film, the whole concept of "motion pictures" stemmed from the ability to tell stories by moving pictures. Add some music on top of that and you get the early films of our time.

As far as the story goes, it was great. In true Disney fashion, watching the movie felt like a great adventure. There were good times and bad times, obstacles and fears, and in the end - triumph. And, not to mention the great musical score and awesome CGI effects.

The best thing about Disney movies is that they are for everyone - both the young and the old. And, this is what makes their movies enjoyable for generations to come.

If you're in the mood for a family type movie, I definitely recommend this one. Check it out!

Happy movie watching!

(p.s. If you've seen the movie already, the film playing in the television set is Hello, Dolly!, and the name of the song playing is Put On Your Sunday Clothes - I really like this happy song!)

Wall-E is a great film. I also like the fact that it doesn't use a whole lot of dialogue. There are times when dialogue can distract you from the little things happening around the characters, but with Wall-E, you can take in more of the surroundings.

You make such a great point about how movies were originally told completely visually. I liked that about this movie too, I think that's why I liked 2001: A Space Odyssey as well.

Thanks, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Films like these are somewhat rare nowadays but they are classic and remain true to how movies were originally told. Pictures are really worth a thousand words, thanks for stopping by! :)
