The whole sequence at the beginning is pretty awesome. My favorite part is actually before Eve arrives. The loneliness is pretty intense.

I love the film Wall-E Its pretty damn adorable. Wish someone would do all that just to see me. Just, preferbly not a robot. Although he is rather lovely

I really want to get this on DVD. I thought it was fantastic, and definitely want to see it again.

yeah there is so much depth and meaning created without any words. it is beautiful, like a chaplin film or something.

Well all I've seen is Modern Times, but besides having very few words I wouldn't call them similar movies at all.

Though I think I get what you're saying. They manage to evoke emotion without words, which is an impressive thing.

wall-e himself is pretty heavily based on chaplin's tramp character. the influence is undeniable if you watch, say, city lights. and it's not that it is so impressive per say, as it is unconventional to find in a massively marketed, modern studio film. emotion is/was evoked all the time without the use of words, especially in silent film, but also music/painting/photography etc.

Well, I'd say a good painting/photograph/silent film/instrumental song that manages to stir some emotion is impressive. Even if it's been done before, it's still a feat.

That's also not art's only purpose. We can argue the definition of art all-day but this is Wikipedia's definition:

Quote:
Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way to affect the senses or emotions.
I'm not trying to hang my hat on a wiki definition but merely trying to express that art can be interpreted differently by all individuals. Some, like me, may focus on the visual and captivating qualities of film.

By the way, you guys are pretending like my favorite movie is Transformers or something.

Eh, you're selling baseball as a hobby short but that doesn't surprise me. I get more intellectually stimulated by a baseball game than most movies, the artsy ones included...

Maybe if you weren't saying such stupid crap like a blithering idiot people wouldn't be jumping on you for it. Intellectually stimulated by a baseball game? Jesus christ, you're helpless.

so where does this translate to 60s films being of lower quality? the film stock in the 1960s was the same as it is now. 35mm film is 35mm film. there is no degradation in quality. if all you care about is the improvements in cgi it's you who's making it seem like your favorite movie is transformers.

the films of andrei tarkovsky or teshigahara or antonioni or various other 60s filmmakers are far more visually captivating than anything i've seen recently.
