I watched Wall -e today and it is not good but it is not bad too, it is ok.

I think the first part of the movie is too slow...almost boring...

Some people (two parents and their 2 kids and two teenagers left the theather at first 30 minutes of the movie)...I saw that.

Wall-e is a good movie, but I think Ratatouille is much better than it.

Whoa, thanks for your honesty. I hadn't heard any opinions like this until now. It's hard to see people leave a flick, but you also never know if they came a little early to go see Hancock and just snuck in to see a bit of Wall-E before their movie?

I saw it as well, I enjoyed it but my four year old daughter told me after when I asked if she liked it "I got sleepy cause it was so long".
She says she liked it though. I agree it isn't the best Pixar has released but I wouldn't look at it as a sign of a chink in the armor.

There was a good story there and the fact that they told 96% of it without "real" dialog hopefully will encourage all that follow not to fall back on catch phrases and dribble to move a plot along.

I'd see it again, and I can't wait for it to hit Blu-Ray.

Wow, the first 30 minutes is actually the best part of Wall-E imo. Perfect almost.

Strange.

Correct... that would be "Cars". [Wink]

Cars may not be the greatest thing in the world. But, I haven't met too many kids who didn't love it.

That's because kids love CARS. Not the movie "Cars," but CARS. Kids like TOYS too. And MONSTERS. And ROBOTS.

If you want to be in with Pixar, pitch them a movie where the main characters are CANDY.

We can't have that! It will surely fail because it's not 3D! [Wink]

Another Solid outing for Pixar .IMO
To me the first half was the best part. Loved it.
And some nice messages about our society too.

I'm currently at Anthrocon in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The fans here seem to love the movie.

Fart: The Movie
(Kids'll love it!)

I dunno.. I hated toy cars as a kid. Whenever I was given them as a gift, I thought it was because I had done something wrong.

If it didn't happen a long time ago, or was from a galaxy far far away.. it was dead to me.

I also loved monsters and ninjas.

The family went to see it last night. My wife usually likes to wait until it's less busy, but we all wanted to see it.

My three and a half year old was riveted the whole time. Didn't know he had it in him. As usual, we got up and danced through the credits.

I thought the part without words was great, made you work for it. My son was working hard on it, asking questions once in a while. He dug it.

It did, however, put our almost six month old to sleep. [Big Grin]

To avoid sperling WALL-E, I've skipped over the above descriptions, and I've also avoided this interesting curio: the Wall-E Mini Movie. Someone has extracted the cut scenes from the WALL-E game and strung them together into a half-hour version of the story. It's said to resemble high-quality machinima. It can be found in the usual places. It's neither the actual entire computer game nor the actual movie, so if you download it you may not go straight to Hayell.

Must say that the first half hour of the picture is amazing, then settling down (if it's even fair to say that) into two strong acts.

My only quibble was that it bothered me that there were live-action people in the beginning of the film, and I did not buy that they...evolved into 3-d CG models 700 years later. Would have preferred to see the humans be in two different digial styles perhaps.

Aside from that, it's one of the few pictures I can be proud to have worked on. I saw a lot of my thoughts in Wall-e's home, but the real guy to tip your cap to is Ralph Eggelston, who put all of us artists' work together into one cohesive design direction.
