"WALL-E" is an adorable movie. Go see it.

I saw "WALL-E" last night with some folks from work and it was universally agreed to be an excellent movie. The characters are fantastic, the animation is as always impressive, and the story is fun. Fans of Apple products will find a few winks to Macs and iPods, and I'm pretty sure EVE is exactly what an Apple robot would look like. For his part, WALL-E bears a striking resemblance to Johnny 5.

I can't wait till I can have my own. For now I'll have to do with the LEGO version, I guess.

Go see it. Cute WALL-E wants you to.
