Vastly overrated movie with all the charm of two vacuum cleaners making love.

Agreed, in the same way that your are a vastly overrated critic that has all the charm of watching two homosexual men have anal sex.

I agree totally with this astute review. Do archetypes matter -- I think they do. I never cared about these silly machines but I guess that many found them charming. Ugh, a waste of my 2 hours.

I second your opinion, S N. This movie was really not that great, and felt very long. There is nothing wrong with a film having a lengthy running time, unless it bores you, which this film does.

Or perhaps the real reason neither of you enjoyed this film is because you both have the attention span of a toothpick and couldn't get past the fact that there weren't any "wicked explosisions!!!".

The movie isn't about machines making love but rather it shows children especially, about caring and other kind of "goodness" That's why its a Pixar movie.

Seriously whoever thinks Wall-E isn't some kind of a great movie just doesn't know what a good movie is. For Pixar, it could be one of there most telling films, having it have a straight-forward moral about technology getting the better end than us, and it was also just a cute little mini-love story that happened to be about futuristic robots thought-to-be cold and unfeeling, rather than two pretty people meeting at the beach and falling in love. We all can have our own opinions, but when the opinion is about something as miniature as explosions, or your blatant ignorance then we got a problem in the movie reviewing world.

You are missing the point of the whole movie. Its not all about the robots its about the message.

I don't think so... That review is as charming as you are: NONE! This is a great movie and it's not your opinion that will change that fact.

In that way, everything is overrated and archetypically-falsy charming. Brokeback Mountain, Slumdog Millionaire, everything is overrated because of the "charm"; you are nothing more than an ignorant sensasionalist looking for attention by saying the opposite everyone says.
I feel sorry for you.

Forget this review, I bet this guy is actually Jeffrey Katzenberg or some other guy from another animation house.

Wow, not only immensely late to the party, but hilariously backwards and wrong. This is the animated film that took home multiple Best Film awards from critics groups, remember. Overrated? No, something is overrated when it's not good, this is brilliant and everyone but this kind of trash and Armond white knows it.

Um, excuse me? You are a sad, sad shallow person with no heart. Wall-E was one of the best movies of the year and if you can't that, than you are just sad. And really, one bad review means nothing in the midst of all of these amazing review. You just want to be different and say the opposite of what everyone else says. I feel sorry for you.

I do agree this movie is overrated, but only slightly. It was still a great film. It has a rather low re-watchability factor, however.

lol, I enjoy an honest review

I thought it was cute in a communist propagandist kinda way.

If your into indoctrinating children through scare tactics watch "An Inconvenient Tru...I mean "Wall-e"

for all of you people calling this guys opinion wrong, get over it, its an opinion.

dude, are you stupid? how in the world does a director make a movie about a dystopian future unless the setting is... oh what's the word... DYSTOPIAN?! Earth was dirty and polluted because that served the plot of people being trapped in a crazy space ship where they all lay around all day and robots blow them and whatnot. This has nothing to do with a political message. It's merely a matter of story telling devices. btw, the director is a republican. and hell, the lead robot is a TRASH COMPACTOR! so is it alright with you righty idiots if we maybe have some trash and pollution in a movie thats half about trash and pollution without you crying about clandestine political agendas!? Lemme ask you something. Since you seem to think that conspiracy is everywhere, are you Glenn Beck? Next your gonna tell me obama is a secret nazi socialist muslim baby eater... grow a cerebral cortex.

It's kind of funny that you call it far left propaganda in response to this guy's bad review. Look at his bio, he's a left wing fundamentalist/socialist...

on the other hand racism is thrown around like a freaking pie in all of those old movies where it was apparently funny to get a pie in ones face.

Why in God's name does everything have to be about race?

Wow, you sir Louis, have no soul. This movie was so charming and touching that I could not help but feel for little Wall-E. You have obviously never felt deeply for a woman (or a man, if that's your thing; it likely is) so I hope that when you make dumb statements like that you think next time. Beautiful movie; callus reviewer. Why are you reviewing with the big boys? Shouldn't you be reviewing some B-movie?

I was never in love with a dishwasher.

Their romantic immitating human was badly presented.
Maybe figured out better, movie would be better.

They just needed "lights go out scene" to complete the deal.

And I don't like males being pathetic and cute over a female.
Inferior, well we maybe are.

Congratulations, Louis Proyect!

You are officially not credible as a movie reviewer!

Try being a garbage man.

Its so funny you're all attacking him for being callous, when you are accusing him, based on a few paragraphs of his writing, of being gay, incompetent, soul-less, shallow,pathetic, blah blah blah....is that not pretty callous? At least he was only slating a cartoon, you are all being highly offensive to a real person with feelings, i would say that was much more insensitive and heartless. Why bully people who disagree with you?

I found this film to be pretty repetitive and monotonous, and while it made some good points about the direction humanity is currently heading in, and about the perseverance of love in the face of adversity, I still think it was very much overrated.

I'm glad some people like Proyect are bold enough to point this out, why should everyone have to think the same and be so deeply condemned if they dare to express a different appraisal?
