I saw wall-e last night at drafthouse s. lamar. Overall I thought it was fantastic. Well-told story, beautiful animation and cinematography, very poignant anti-consumer message that could not come at a better time. I love that all the conservatives are pissed off by this movie. The influence of movies such as star wars, 2001, and tron, are very apparent in it, and most definitely so is Short Circuit. Johnny Five must be pissed. The blatant influence of Johnny Five on the design of Wall-E cannot be denied. It has to be deliberate, right? I kept on waiting for Wall-E to say "nice software", but it never happened.
