700 years from now, the Earth is buried under a heap of trash. Mankind has long since left the planet on what was supposed to be a temporary stay in outer space while a fleet of robots, called WALL-Es ( I forget what it stood for now ), were left behind to attempt to clean things up. Somewhere along the way, they failed, leaving our lone hero as the last functioning robot left.

As we join the story, Wall-E is doing his usual thing. After 700 years, he seems to have developed some eccentricities and collects random bits of junk, like that old rubiks cube. One day while he's out cleaning up and making more trash pile buildings, a ship lands, and a probe emerges. From here, we watch as Wall-E investigates, and eventually ends up having to help "Eva" complete her directive. I'll leave off here as mentioning any more than this would spoil a good story :)

I doubt I need to tell you that Pixar is usually known for producing gems, and they've not missed a beat this time either. The 3D animation is easily their best work yet, and is a nice crown to the batch of projects they began with. Several of the scenes might even pass for realistic if you didn't know any better. The cast of characters they've created this time around is absolutely hilarious and they all do their part to flesh out the story.

If you've got kids, they'll love this one. But if you're like me and prefer a nice QUIET movie, visit the super early show or wait until really late at night. The kids this time around weren't too bad, but they still created enough of a disruption to be annoying. It didn't help much that the idiots in the projector booth couldn't figure out how to fix the center focus, so there was this big blur in the middle of the screen for most of the show. Annoying, but not enough to ruin it.

With one more down, we're running out of good movies left to go see. There's basically Hancock, X-Files 2, and Mummy 3. After that, there isn't jack until the Christmas listings start showing up. And oh God, some of the previews at this show were just horrid. The crap coming out of Hollywood these days.

Well. I guess that's that then.

Now this is one that we've had on pre-order from Netflix for awhile now! :)

Hancock was excellent, but I've yet to see Wall-E. Next on my list: Wall-E.. Meet Dave (Eddie murphy movies are always funny) .. hmm. That's about it.
