Daily Dialogue — March 1, 2013

March 1st, 2013 by

She flies around the bay.
Soars like a graceful bird.
Does loops in the sky.
Zooms right past Wally’s rock.
He is hypnotized.

Eve descends gently to the ground…
Wally sneaks up closer.
Hides behind another boulder.
Slips.
Makes a NOISE.
Instantly, Eve whips around.
Her arm converts into a LASER CANNON.
Blasts Wally’s boulder to smithereens.

Wall-E (2008), Andrew Stanton & Jim Reardon, story by Andrew Stanton & Pete Docter

This week’s Daily Dialogue theme is boy meets girl suggested by TaraPhelps.

Trivia: The film’s working title was “Trash Planet”.

Dialogue On Dialogue: Amazing how characters who barely have any dialogue can evoke such an emotional response.

    Love this film and the Earth-bound scenes are just fantastic – ironically, for “daily dialogue” the perfect example of “show don’t tell”…some of the emotion that is delivered via Wall-E’s “eyes” is superbly realised. Although not as hard-hitting as the opening to UP, part of me feels this is better as it portrays the same love but in a very tender way and against greater challenges. His attempts to woo EVE and to get a reaction when she has shut down are beautifully played out. PIXAR are just annoyingly brilliant! :-)

    Thomas Newman music, Roger Deakins consulting on the visuals, and Andrew Stanton in the driving seat for story and character. Fabulous stuff and lots of “pure” cinema.
