I am going to say first off that my wife didn't like the film ..... I am considering either divorce or murder to rectify this oversight
Wall*E has to be the most visually stunning of the Pixar releases to date, with sections that honestly make you wonder whether or not they are actually live footage. I am not going to go into anything that could be considered a spoiler, because there very little I can say that could actually paint an accurate enough picture of this film. Suffice to say this (because I am not an overly sentimental person I usually don't get affected by this kind of story) the absolute charm and sincerity of the main characters, Wall*E and EVE, combined with an amazingly minimalist dialog puts this as probably one of the best films made in the last 10 years in any genre.
Words escape me, descriptions defy me ..... all I can say is you have to see this small wonder of a film for yourself

My son saw this movie over the weekend with a friend and is building his own "robot" now. It is made out of a shoe box and some train tracks and the air pump thing from his sleeping bag, and an old pair of binoculars...So awesome!
Are we ever really HERE, man?

I want to see it too really soon. Short on money right now though. I've been visiting my mother in the hospital in another city so I haven't been at work for a week and I'm just getting back to work tonight.
Hope your mom gets better. Take care

TR, I agree with you on the visual descriptions. There were really some moments where the environment looked real not CGI. I was so amazed by the backgrounds...even the space ones (who of us wouldn't want to reach up and touch the rings of a planet or soar through a nebula?)
I can sort of see where certain audiences would become bored rather easily...the lack of non-computer sounding dialogue for the first third of the movie would drive some people nuts (i.e. "Benji: The Hunted" and "Castaway"). And there's a lot that the audience needs to infer. So if you're around people who need to be spoon fed everything in a movie, this is not a film for them.
However I believe most people on this board would not fall into that category of audience.
