Favorite Movie Sequences: Define Dancing from Wall-E

In today's blog post, I'm going to talk about favorite sequences.  Usually in a movie, there's always a sequence which defines the whole film experience for you.  One that pushes the movie into all time best films of all time for you.  You know when it happens, it could be the image that takes your breath away, makes you cry, or in my case, gave me goosebumps.

Pixar films are always a delight to watch in the theater and Wall-E was no exception.  I was enjoying the little robot's adventures with a smile on my face throughout and then this sequence transformed the movie into a keeper.  The combination of Thomas Newman's incandescent score and the onscreen antics of Wall-E and Eve are truly infectious.  Andrew Stanton, the director of Wall-E, shows us with emotion is the true king of animation.  The vastness of space is turned into a dancing floor as Eve and Wall-E "dance" by the enormous spaceship.  The sequence also contains one of my favorite lines from the film.  The Captain asks the Ship's Computer, "Define, 'dancing'." as he has never seen dancing before.  To which the Computer replies, "Dancing: A series of movements involving two partners, where speed and rhythm match harmoniously with music." as Wall-E and Eve fly past them, dancing.  Best definition ever!  This is "Define Dancing" and it is one of my favorite sequences of film.
