WALL·E

First full viewing. I know, what an asshole.

First third is probably the most special and unique thing Pixar, and pretty much any major animated film, has done (perfect rebuttal to "I don't like silent movies"). It doesn't quite maintain that magic as it becomes more of a kinetic chase/heist movie (with bursts of that purity), but it's fun enough and so well-made that it doesn't doom the movie in my eyes. Stunning, surprisingly bleak imagery (that Roger Deakens consulting credit was put to good use), and the ultimate message is conveyed well enough to overcome the hypocrisy of any major studio movie with an anti-corporate message. This is a good one.
