Toy Story 3 has been getting a ton of recognition lately. Yesterday, Richard Corliss of TIME put together a ‘Best of 2010’ list, naming Toy Story 3 the best movie of the year. TIME is also featuring their ‘best of the decade’ lists from last year and WALL-E is sitting pretty right at the top of the movies list. That’s right. Pixar’s own, WALL-E, was crowned the best movie of the 2000’s!
“A romance and an adventure, like all Pixar movies, director Andrew Stanton’s masterpiece here represents the decade’s full Pixar oeuvre, including Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille and Up. It also stands in for all the glories of animation, whether CGI, traditional or stop-motion, that provided the greatest measure of joy in the new cinematic millennium.”
It is amazing to see WALL-E continue to be recognized for the fantastic film that it was. Easily one of the most original ideas to come from Pixar, it was a film that made us believe that robots can fall in love too. Now, I’m tempted to go watch it again!
Note: It is true that this list was actually compiled by TIME last year. With 2010 ending, they are featuring their lists once again, so I thought I would feature it as well. Doesn’t hurt to honor the great WALL-E again, right?
