    I loved Wall-E! I thought it was smart and sweet. I'm curious to see how it'll ultimately do.

    I'll probably wait for Blu-Ray.
    Knowing how you appreciate visuals, I strongly suggest you see it in the theater. This is Pixar's most visually creative and impressive movie yet. And yeah, there was some live action, and it worked really well. Particularly a VHS tape that gets played...I won't say more because in a sense that VHS tape is the heart of the film.

    I agree. Especially the opening shots and the "dance" sequence.

    i did enjoy it, but i saw some holes and i think the character development outside of the wall-e and eva was weak. like, why did the humans act like they and wall-e went way back, bff n' sh*t? and how did they survive 700 years on a spaceship made by, essentially, walmart? they hardly interacted with each other, so how were there babies? test tube? and if they had been sending probes to earth for those 700 years, why did it seem that wall-e had never seen an eva robot before? i understand, it's a kids movie, but still... too many holes for me.

    anyone notice the similarities between wall-e and idiocracy?
    just throw it against the wall and see what sticks.

    Ha, it sort of did resemble Idiocracy! I wish the movie could have stayed like the first half hour or so, when the principle characters were on Earth and everything looked so fantastic visually. As soon as the people came in, the movie was less than perfect for me. Still very good though, especially for a kid's movie.

    It's not just a kids movie, it's also propaganda. That should answer most of your questions. But I still agree with most of the sentiments here. It was enjoyable.

    Do tell.

    I haven't seen the movie, and know almost nothing about it, but knowing booyalab I now imagine an opening monolog that goes something like:

    "Back at the turn of the century, the people of the most powerful nation on Earth elected the stupidest president ever. After that, they failed to oust his party from power and the world became a wasteland..."

    What a cute as hell movie. The animation and cleverness is brilliant.

    My apologies, it's been a while since I've seen an animated movie.
