    With Monsters, Inc or The Incredibles — both of which are fine movies — you can convey the gist of the plot in a few sentences. A city of monsters relies on scaring kids to power their city, or a family of superheroes tries to find their place in the suburbs. It doesn't convey the feeling you get, but you can wrap your head around the idea.

    Wall-E is something else entirely. I don't know how to describe what it's about without basically telling you how the whole movie goes. Virtually all of the other Pixar releases focus on belonging to a family of some sort, and growth of the main character. Those moments are here too, but it's almost beside the point.

    Wall-E's intense sense of awe for the world around him is what drives the movie, and you can't help but start to see things through his eyes. The most surprising aspect of the storytelling is something I can't outright say because it gives away too much, but most directors would never attempt it.

    Young kids will absolutely love this movie. The action is perfectly paced, and the characters are fun and expressive. I'm also confident than any Pixar fan will be sold within the first five minutes. I've focused a lot on how different it is, but let's be clear — it's a stunning, amazing movie. One of a kind. The musical score, by the way, is amazing as well.

    And the new short that precedes the movie is fantastic. Again, completely unlike any previous effort, and hilarious. The entire audience was roaring with laughter by the end.

    And guess what? The Pixar campus has a new sculpture outside the main entrance.

    Enjoy!

    Really I thought the movie was boring; Just like The Incredibles.

    Like I said just like The Incredible.

    This is my opinion no need to try and fight me on it. I did however find the fat people walking out of the theater funny as hell.

    The first 30 minutes or so of Wall-E is godly. When the humans and what not came into play, that was still executed pretty damn amazingly.

    I love the movie, honestly. I don't find it boring or uninteresting. It's unique, and can truly fit all audiences. It does its job pretty damn well. Pixar always will be the best big animation company around. \m/

    I just watched this and found it to be one of my favorite Pixar movies to date. The lack of dialogue might lead some people to say the movie was boring or sucks. But if you can get over that aspect of the movie and enjoy the interactions between characters then this movie is awesome. Plus Wall-E is just so dang cute :lol:

    Personally I didn't care for it much, which is very odd, as I am generally into Pixar's animated movies.

    It may have been the *cough* cruddy quality I watched it on however.

    I didn't think it would be that great. I thought it would just be a flat out kids movie. So you're saying its good, then?
