When a film can be entertaining, spectacular looking, filled with lovable characters and delivers a timely message about our world and society, animated or not, I think it is safe to call it brilliant. WALL-E is one of the best movies I saw this year.

Kids liked it and it is not bad. I just think I am tired of seeing Pixar stuff 24/7 at home with the kids to actually be objective about this.
