A Movie Reel

WALL-E: 9 out of 10.

WALL-E is now my favourite film from Pixar, and that's sayin' something.  I once referred to Pixar as "every parent's saving grace".  Every summer you're guaranteed at least one movie that's good for the kids and sweet viewing for you.

WALL-E is a dash of Short Circuit mixed with a sprinkle of E.T. and a tinge of 2001: A Space Odyssey.  The first third contains no dialogue and just a couple of robots and a cockroach yet it's riveting, fascinating and terribly sad all at once.  Really, you've got to see the best Pixar film since The Incredibles.

I should add that this is the first film I've seen at the new AMC Yonge & Dundas 24.  I received a bunch of free passes, popcorns and drinks for writing this entry so we all saw WALL-E for free.  It looked great on the big screen and it sounded brilliant.  And no, I don't get more passes for giving the theatre a positive review.
