Short Circuit is rumoured to be re-made. Why oh why! (Money.) Wall-E to me will always be Johnny 5's long lost cousin. Joshua Rich on the Entertainment Weekly" website is predicting Wall-E to achieve a $71 million opening weekend but I think it could be even more due to the universal good reviews the film is getting. Wall-E opens in Ireland and the UK on the 18th of July. The film's cute widget, from it's American website, is below.

The most well reviewed film this year by far seems to be the new Disney-Pixar movie, "Wall-E". I have yet to read a bad review of this film. It has been said before but the Wall-E robot is similar to that of the robot "Number 5" or "Johnny 5" as he was known as in the 1986 movie; "Short Circuit". It's stars were Ally Sheedy and Steve Guttenberg. It made $40 million in the US and a sequel followed in 1988 which was called, yes! "Short Circuit 2". "Wall-E" is above. "Johnny 5" is below. Discuss! Short Circuit also had one of the poppiest soundtrack songs ever in the form of El DeBarge's hit; Who's Johnny. El Debarge had released their best known song "Rhythm of the Night" in 1985 as well as my favourite song by them; "Who's Holding Donna Now. "Who's Johnny" reached number 1 on the US R'n'B charts and number 3 on the Billboard Singles Chart. The video, which featured singer El Debarge, as well as the movie's stars; Ally Sheedy and Steve Guttenberg, is below.
