Wall•e Review

Last night Christine and I caught a sneak preview of Wall•e at Pacific Place.

In summary, this is simply the best movie of the year, and the best Pixar movie ever made.

The story telling, the characters, the themes, the movie excels at all of these, and more. The visual quality of the movie is astounding. I had to keep reminding Christine that this wasn't a real scene, particularly during the beginning of the movie where the bulk of the animation is spent on characters named Wall•e, Eve, and a cockroach.

I don't know how they do it, but they make the lead characters endearing without any significant dialogue-- and they're robots!

I give it five stars... I suspect this will break ground in ways that no animated movie ever has.

Comment/Excerpt: We saw this today. Included in the posse were 2 three year olds,a six year old, a thirty year old and a thirty-three year old... and am not sure who enjoyed it more. Thanks for the recommendation! This is the first movie I have been to since Jan 2005.
