We took the boys to see WALL-E today... 

It was their first movie going experience and they were both totally into the film.  They've been going crazy for the commercials for weeks and a few weeks ago I picked them up each a Wall-E figure from TRU (which they brought to the theater with them  :D).

From the opening short film to the final credits, both of them were totally enthralled by the film and I thought it was great too!  Definitely another PIXAR classic!

I brought my boyos on Monday, they both were bored to tears through most of it, not sure if it was the lack of dialogue or lack of action. Afterward they both said they liked it and wanted to go again...color me confused.  Until I heard the exact same story on the radio the other day from a local radio host who also brought his two sons, they both kept saying they wanted to leave during it but afterwards said it was great.

I liked it, its not my favorite Pixar film (Toy Story is still the greatest) but it was better than most

My son is like that. If the movie isn't 100% action from start to finish he will get board and want to wander round at the snack bar instead of watch the moviet. He did this during Ironman. He constantly needed to go to the restroom and wouldn't really do anything but was all over it when Ironman started fighting.

I thought it was a pretty decent flick.  Definately better than Ratatouille.  I remember how eerily quiet it got in the theatre when WALL-E said his name (for the first time) and it was almost a packed house full of kiddies.

We saw it today and it was a wonderful movie.  We also enjoyed the short beforehand with the rabbit and magician.

I was really impressed by this movie.  While it looked interesting, I didn't have high hopes after being disappointed in the last two Pixar flicks.  That, and the trailers had me worried that Wall-E himself was going to be another Number 5 from Short Circuit.   :-\  I was amazed at how captivated the movie seemed to keep everyone in the theater (kids and adults alike) despite the lack of dialogue.  I loved how the robots all had so much more personality than the humans, and there was some good commentary about pollution and technology.

Thank you Pixar for restoring my faith in your movies.  :)

You didn't like Cars?

Nope, sure didn't.  Part of it is the subject matter (I can't stand racing), part of it is Larry the Cable Guy and part of it is that I just didn't get into the characters that much.  I've watched it a couple of times, and while I'll admit I liked it better the second time that's not saying much because I *hated* it the first time.  It had its moments and a pretty good message, so I'm sure I'll it another shot.

Saw it last night with the girlfriend. I liked it, it was cute. My girlfriend really liked it and got tearful at the end.

Has anyone seen UP yet?  And is it as good as the hype is saying?

I just got back from seeing UP in 3D. It was definitely worth the price of admission. I really enjoyed the movie, and the short in front of the film was really cute. :)

I hear its better to see up in a non-3D theater because the colors are much brighter. The 3D glasses makes the movie darker.
