Peter Gabriel and Wall-E
I usually don't really like kid's movies. I started getting into classics like The Aristocats because my son Gibson loves them. After seeing Cars, he couldn't get enough. Pretty soon I realized that I actually was enjoying some of these movies, especially the newer Pixar movies. I actually like Ratatouille more than little Gibson. And when I saw Wall-E I was in love.
This is a beautiful movie. The animation is so cool you forget you are watching animation at all. The story is touching and illustrates a frightening possible future for humankind and the Earth. So before I say "feelgood movie of the year", I should mention the other reason I think this movie is so cool. Peter Gabriel.
Peter Gabriel does a track which is used in the credits. It's sweet.
