This film continues to stir up conversations. Here are a few of the best articles I’ve found recently.
- Jason Calacanis finds two possible inspirations for WALL-E. Yeah, the Short Circuit references has been done… but the other one is a doozy.
- Think Progress has a good laugh at some of the knee-jerk reactionary responses to WALL-E.
- The Vulture Culture blogs takes on Jeffrey Wells and defends WALL-E‘s eventual nomination for Best Picture by the Motion Picture Academy.
- The Hartford Courtant reports that Jerry Herman, composer of Hello Dolly, likes that his songs made it into the picture and play such an important role.
By the way, I hearby predict the eventual opening of WALL-E World, a new theme park dedicated to the lonely robot in all of us. Of course it must be closed when the Griswold’s arrive.
