So today I took TKJr to see Wall E. Partly because I thought it would be fun to do something, just the two of us. And, partly because I really wanted to see it.
What a great movie. Most of the reviews I had read were right on the mark. Beautiful to look at, touching and lots of fun. The complaints over the depiction of humans: unmerited. I felt that humans were shown as victims themselves, and displayed an almost immediate desire to live as shown as the option was available.
I really, really enjoyed it. Pixar usually does a great job, and this is hands down their most stunning achievement. Go see it.
