Reel Rumbles #37: “WALL·E” vs. “Up”

Nigel Druitt

A self-described fanboy, Nigel has always looked at movies as entertainment first and art second. (Not that a film can't be both.) His personal Flickchart Top 20 is dominated by the likes of Frodo Baggins, Indiana Jones, Marty McFly and Christopher Nolan. Nigel is the Canadian arm of the Flickchart Blog, but try not to hold that against him. You can find him on Flickchart as johnmason, where his chart is currently undergoing a major overhaul.

    Up is such an outstanding film. Much deserving of its place as a Best Picture nominee.

    Fantastic piece, and I completely agree with the result. UP was my favourite film of ’09, and is my favourite Pixar film. Such a beautiful film, but one that also completely succeeds as a rip-roaring and funny adventure that kids and adults alike can enjoy

    Wall-E was the best film ever for about 40 minutes then average (compared to other pixar films) for rest

    UP was sort of average (compared to all animated films!) for whole film! so no competition here

    Pixar ftw but UP can go join cars and cars 2 imo and go away

      You must be a kid or a teenager? Probably.

      I understand you didn’t get the emotion of the other people get from Up but I don’t think it is simply considered as “average”. I’ll say it is excellent in its own rights.
