Superlative Blu-ray For A Modern Masterpiece,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WALL-E [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Love, loneliness, hope, loss and rediscovery are just some of the themes explored in WALL E, another surefire hit from the team at Pixar. Probably my favourite Pixar film, it never fails to make me smile.
Primarily aimed at kids but with more than enough smarts and humour to charm adults this is THE perfect family film for our modern times.
WALL E is a happy little load lifting waste compactor robot living on a now adandoned and polluted Earth who unwittingly becomes the catalyst for a rebirth of humanity. Finding friendship and maybe even love along the way WALL E will touch your heart and make you laugh at his madcap adventure on Earth and then in space. Beautifully written, animated and directed this is undoubtedly a modern masterpiece of film making and a future classic.
Pixar are never mean with their selection of extras but this Blu-ray sets a new standard for me. 2 commentary tracks which are both well worth your time. One has us one on one with the director Andrew Stanton which is a joy to listen to, providing an in depth disection of everything relating to the making of the film. The other commentary track is a Blu-ray exclusive and is labelled as a 'geek track/trash talk' with 4 of the peeps from Pixar and its great stuff too. Very geeky, quite funny and another great listen this is also a worthy inclusion and something Id like to see more of.
Theres a fairly short making of WALL E featurette but its still interesting to watch. We get BURN E and PRESTO, (2 animated shorts) BnL animated shorts, interactive videogames, (yes, really!!!) a tour of the ship from the film, deleted scenes plus more.
But the extra which is probably worth the disc price alone is the feature length documentary 'The Pixar Story' which is just a very special document of the story of the wonderful people at Pixar, including John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and the sadly recently deceased Steve Jobs. A true fairytale documented almost as it happened. Wonderful.
The picture and audio quality is stunning, as ever with Pixar, so if you're wondering at all this is pretty much the perfect Blu-ray release. Magnificent Pixar!!!
