Up v Wall-E

UP v WallEPixar have never been short on imagination or originality.  If you’d told Walt his two latest protagonists were going to be a sanitation device and a cranky old pensioner, he wouldn’t have called you Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Happy, Grumpy or Doc. But which of these animated gems outshines the other? You decide. Click HERE or the pic above to read this battle we’ve done for Metro Film Fight Club.

  1. haha, just read your comment over at my site, weird. Wall-E is so freakin’ good, but I gotta go with Up on this one, might just be the best Pixar movie out there. don’t quote me on that though, a marathon has been in order for a while now.

    this one isn’t too tough a call for me. to me, Wall-E is the better film. Up is good, and has two painfully beautiful scenes, but in between I actually found it sort of dull. Plus, the little kid is annoying, and the end is just your run of the mill action adventure.

    in my opinion, it would have made more sense for the kid in Up to be a girl that would sort of remind Carl of his wife in a way, as far as her being an adventurer goes. but, i think audiences would maybe read that as creepy instead of sweet unfortunately. so, we’re left with the one female in the movie dying at the beginning. unless you count the bird…Kevin…then there were two females…

  3. Jesus Nothat, I was creeped out before I even got to the end of that sentence!

  4. I see what you did there Ross McG in that last paragraph.

    I’ve been sounding like a broken record since Ratatouille by saying “best Pixar film” and said it once more with Up. For me each film has gotten progressively better and while I dearly love WALL-E there’s just a lot more depth to Up.

    From the dark themes of aging to the subverting of animated film stereotypes Up astounded me in just about every way. This may be the first time you actually end up liking the annoying little pipsqueak kid by the time the credits roll.
