netflixed



Wall-e sure enough look purty and what-not, but I don't like saccharine, and CGI saccherine is even worse. I'm content to have seen it once, but I'll take the Parisian rat chef over the lovesick robot any day.

agreed, re: the rat chef (their best by FAR)

but I am surprised you didn't like this...

I thought the last 30 min was thin, but MAN, the fist 45 minutes or so was beautiful.

oh, well... to each his own. Maybe you were not in the right mood for it?... but it charmed ME big time...

flawed, but beautiful noe the less, and still WAAAAAY smarter that all the quick-quipped, pop culter reference snarky, sarcastic 3D monstrosities dreamworks calls a "movie" these days...

Mr. Vondracek is on the money! Exactly my feelings. Andrew Stanton's no Brad Bird, but he did well on this one.

I agree--it LOOKED beautiful. But empty, empty, empty.

I wasn't talking about just the visuals though--I have a spot for post-apocalyptic eco hard sci fi that doesn't get scratched that much. This one since, oh say, Silent Running? And I liked the love story. It is a half ass film though, didn't quite know where to go or even how far to go, what with the walmart and obesity points.
