This weekend was pretty uneventful for me.. but luckily, I was able to enjoy to films this weekend. wall*e and wanted. I am not surprised at all that both movies earned over 50 million this weekend. Both are spectacular in their own way. wall-e, although a children’s film, focuses on many important environmental, and political issues that are in the news today. These issues include, oppression, the environment, and obesity. All placed in a futuristic backdrop and an underlying story of love and friendship. I was expecting a decent movie from pixar. This was much more than I could have hoped for. Although it is hard to rate, in order, the pixar movies. This one is definitely in the top 3.
On to wanted. This movie kicks ass. It is totally a man’s movie that combines office space, fight club, and the matrix, into an adrenaline pumping train ride. I was totally engrossed in this movie from the second it started. The soundtrack is also phenomenal. NIN launches the movie with ‘every day is exactly the same’ and pushes the beginning tempo of wanted.
I truly suggest seeing both movies ASAP. and the Dark Knight is coming out in like 2 weeks!
