    Hm. 97% ripe on Rotten Tomatoes and with good reason. To get this and Batman in the same year really rather validates Hollywood as an institution that still has it.

    What Toy Story showed about friendship, and Finding Nemo said about fathers and sons, or the Incredibles said about families, WALL-E says about one form of romantic love. It’s really very beautiful and kind of cute-and-deep in a way that’s hard to describe. Also some rather good bits on relationships between human and machine. I hear there’s been a lot of fuss among the Libertarians reading it as a critique of capitalism – not really seeing that, I think it’s pretty clear that The Company is actually the State ;)

    Really does need to be seen, it’s a wonderful film, and I very much doubt the small screen does it justice. Enjoy!

    flattr this!
