Due to inconvenient timing of becoming a Dad, I missed this particular Pixar film on the big screen. Which, having seen it on Blu-Ray, seems a shame. For a 3D animated film, the level of detail, and the inclusion of some live action footage makes it visually spectacular.

But – as with other Pixar films – it’s the story that matters. Their ability to make us care about a robot, and what he’s trying to do, is amazing. Granted, their robot’s face is quite similar to the robot in Short Circuit, so we already care about him a little, but you get the impression they could achieve this even with a completely dissimilar robot.

  1. this is one of my favourites… and for different reasons, but the main one is that the lack of dialogue. the commuication with sounds and facial expressions, music and imagination is so very clear that i think its easily missed. i watch the relationship that forms and am almost sad that the humans had to be in it at all.
