Wall*E is... wow.

I'll write more on this later - but for now, get up off your duff and go see Wall*E on a big screen. Not only is the animation amazing, but the story is intriguing & beautiful & thought-provoking. (And ignore the hyper-conservative whining about "political undertones" - sheesh. Go find something real to blog about already.)

From the review at Robert Wilonsky:
Many will attempt to describe WALL-E with a one-liner. It’s R2-D2 in love. 2001: A Space Odyssey starring The Little Tramp. An Inconvenient Truth meets Idiocracy on its way to Toy Story. But none of these do justice to a film that’s both breathtakingly majestic and heartbreakingly intimate—and, for a good long while, absolutely bereft of dialogue save the squeals, beeps, and chirps of a sweet, lonely robot who, aside from his cockroach pet, is the closest thing to the last living being on earth.

We may take the kids sometime today. It looks really great.

So, what did you guys think? Remember, try not to leave any spoilers for the unsuspecting!

good, but not great, in my opinion. Definitely not my favorite (The Incredibles still holds that honor). I probably need to see it again to make a definitive judgement, though.
