Go Watch WALL•E

June 30, 2008

It is as simple as that, you need to go watch WALL•E. If you want to stop reading that’s fine because you already read the most important part of what I am going to say. Incase you missed it, go watch WALL•E.

Pixar has created an amazing gem of a film here that really blurs the lines of what is a kid’s film and what is a movie for adults. From the sober opening to the goofy robot chase, everything just works and clicks. What they did was create an amazing sci-fi film with a great atmosphere and message and then wrapped it in a cute and loving animation that everyone can like. For me, Pixar hit it with Toy Story 2, then it was Monsters, Inc. and now WALL•E takes the top pedestal position. I don’t want to say much more other than that and also the short film at the opening of the movie, a Pixar standard, is now their best as well. And yes, it does have a hoedown in it.

MC @ The Movies: Bubba Ho-Tep

August 17, 2007

Another new feature here will be MaoChan @ The Movies, where every Friday I will recommend a more not so mainstream movie that everyone should see and might not have heard of. The focus will be films that you can sit down with friends and truly enjoy. I also hope to hear what you thought of the film and to send in recommendations that I will post.

This week your assignment stars cult classic actor Bruce Campbell in Bubba Ho-Tep. Based on a short story, it tells the true story of Elvis Presley. Turns out he didn’t die, that was an impersonator. He now lives with a black JFK, played by Ossie Davis, who end up battling an evil Egyptian entity who has chosen their long-term care facility as his happy hunting grounds. Full of great one liners and memorable moments, it is cult horror at its best.
