Side Effects Of Cipro, (This post is spoiler-free until you reach the cut)
Mandy and I saw WALL-E this morning... really awesome movie, I thought. Pixar really has come a long way since Toy Story, both in terms of their animation and in the complexity of their characters. I really enjoyed the movie.
The details in the environments were just amazing. The textures were amazing, as were the sheer number of objects rendered in every scene, Side Effects Of Cipro. It's a big jump from Toy Story. Toy Story had neat stuff and good details, but the sets were fairly simple. WALL-E has scenes with just thousands of tiny details - specifically, WALL-E's little home, full of his collected items. Carefully rendered spoons, toys, clothing items, spare parts, lenses, hundreds of Christmas lights... Side Effects Of Cipro, just lots of things. All lit and textured with a film of dirt and dust, 1000mg Side Effects Of Cipro. It was spectacular just in regard to the photorealism of the environments.
Visually, the only thing that bothered me was that the humans in the videos were live action, but the human characters were stylized CG. It was a little weird. In general, I didn't like the live action bits because they didn't mesh with the rest of the movie, Side Effects Of Cipro.
I actually really, really enjoyed the first 15 minutes of the movie, during which there was no dialogue. It was extremely well done and very impressive. I was very impressed with the amount of character development that was possible for WALL-E and EVE, despite that they were largely non-verbal. (I think the only things they said in the whole movie were character names, "Plant," "Directive," "Earth" and "No.")
And OMG, WALL-E [the robot] was SO freaking cute. Side Effects Of Cipro, I loved that it was this little old-fashioned, romantic robot who is universally liked and accepted wherever he goes. His personality was great - a self-sufficient, creative, Side Effects Of Cipro overseas, playful little dude. I loved how he didn't just let himself go into disrepair, he instead cannibalized defunct robots to maintain himself. I really enjoyed him in contrast with EVE... personality-wise, but also just visually. WALL-E looks a lot like Johnny 5, whereas EVE looks more like an iPod, Side Effects Of Cipro. It's like low-budget 80's meets modern technology. Really neat.
Also saw the trailer for what may be the WORST Disney movie ever to be made - Beverly Hills Chihuahua. Side Effects Of Cipro, Aside from being what looks like a horrible movie about CG chihuahuas, I couldn't help but watch this and think of this [the part around 1:30].
I don't think the cut is working on LJ.... so PLEASE skip the rest if you want to avoid spoilers...
Question before I forget - at the beginning, they kept showing those little storms and alerts that WALL-E would get, and then he'd have to go and hunker down in his little house till they passed. Did they ever explain what they were.
I liked that for all of the conflicts that the movie presented, robots becoming sentient and trying to take over was not one of the themes, Side Effects Of Cipro. The robots were never actually dangerous to humans, quite the opposite. Even the Autopilot's "mutiny" was not self-directed; he was following human orders issued by BnL 700 years prior to ensure the survival of humanity. Throughout the movie (and even through the credits animation), 250mg Side Effects Of Cipro, the robot role was that of a helpmate and companion. It was kind of refreshing to have the robots okay with being robots, rather than robots who were trying to prove their equality or superiority to humans. Side Effects Of Cipro, The robots weren't better, worse, or equal. Just different, and that was okay.
I find myself being alternately impressed and a little bit bothered by some of Pixars more grown-up themes or scary ideas. In general, I think this is a Good Thing. In Finding Nemo, I was bothered by what seemed like a Very Scary opening with the SLAUGHTER of Nemo's mother and all of his unborn siblings. In Monsters Inc, I thought the scream extractor was also rather scary for a kid's movie, Side Effects Of Cipro. In Ratatouille, I was left a little unsettled that all of the main kid's coworkers [excluding the love interest] ditched him and did not return when it was discovered that he was not a great chef on his own - leaving, I thought, a rather bittersweet ending to the movie. In WALL-E, I was surprised by the amount of damage that the storytellers were willing to inflict on the title character. First by scrambling his little robot brain when they fried his motherboard, then in having him physically crushed about 10 minutes later. Side Effects Of Cipro paypal, While they didn't go all the way and actually kill him, I thought this was rather traumatic. Side Effects Of Cipro, I also found EVE's repairing WALL-E to be a little unsatisfying. I was pleased that she remembered all of his spare parts, and it was really pretty amazing that they actually had him 'reset' to being a normal WALL-E unit after having had his motherboard swapped out. In particular, I was amazed by how the animators really cruised right into the uncanny valley to figure out what made WALL-E look sentient, then remove those mannerisms and movements to make him into a cold, personality-less machine. I didn't really like that he was able to remember EVE without his motherboard. I understand why it was done the way it was - it was making it clear that WALL-E was more than just the literal sum of his parts, and that his personality/soul/whatever transcended his mechanical pieces. However, I tend to equate "motherboard" to "brain," so he basically had a brain transplant..., Side Effects Of Cipro. and as sweet and romantic as it was that EVE finally holding his hand brought him back around, it just didn't really resonate. I would have been more "comfortable" with EVE realizing that he couldn't just be made whole again by replacing things, and that some things need to be repaired and nurtured... then having his motherboard repaired. This was what I had expected and what would have probably felt more natural... Side Effects Of Cipro, and I think this would have been more in line with the overall theme of the movie as well, being that the movie was about fixing things rather than just finding a quick fix. A new motherboard was a quick fix.
I enjoyed the human characters as well. The Captain was very endearing, Side Effects Of Cipro india, and I liked his dewy-eyed wonder at the details of his home planet. I liked the inquisitive, human curiousity and exploration of the two humans who had their screens turned off. I liked the idea that people could get drawn away from what was important and what was real, but they could always be drawn back to it. The feeling of discovery and realization was really joyful.
I had other thoughts, but I don't remember them.... Maybe later.
