I've seen my share...

...of robot movies, but I have to say that "Wall-E" is a mighty good one. We laughed, we gasped, we "aww"-ed, we got to the point where, were we a good bit sappier and had onions on us, we might have cried. It was a good movie. A very fun (and funny!) movie, with touching and poignant bits thrown throughout. Bit o' symbolism here and there for those who want to look for it, but generally the movie stayed away from the slap-you-in-the-face stuff, so you could watch it as a lighthearted thing as well if you so desired.
Overall a really good movie. We had a great time. I give it an A+.

I liked Wall-E a lot too. I'd heard too many things about it being the best movie ever to not be a tad bit disappointed, but I'd still give it an A. Just not an A+. :)

He's so friggin' cute, though!

Not as good as Iron Man, eh?

Also - by "we" do you mean the audience?

Sexy Llama: I didn't hear a ton about it before I saw it, so I guess I wasn't set up for disappointment.
:-D

Ryan: I did't come out of it quite as generally impressed as with Iron Man, but it was more emotional. Iron Man had Exploding Stuff, Wall-E had touching moments.

We = myself and the person that I saw the movie with it.

I am a huge fan of WALL-E. I think it is phenomenal. I actually think all of the improvisationalists should watch it just to learn how to create a scene without saying anything.
