wall-emovieI was in Ahanheim, CA on June 27, the official release date of this awesome flick.

I couldn't resist taking a photo of this giant WALL-E that greeted visitors at the entrance to the Downtown Disney Shopping District next to Disneyland. 

There were free tickets available for the premier at the AMC Theatres but I didn't get in line in time.

I never did watch "WALL-E" until it was recently released on DVD.  I stuck it in the DVD player and proceeded to sort through my bills while half-paying attention.  The bills were quickly abandoned as I got hooked on this intricate and delightful CGI adventure.

And it of course has a message -- don't ruin the environment!  Or your own body or spirit, for that matter. 

And, finally, a movie song that actually deserves an Academy Award -- "Down to Earth" -- sung, written and produced by Peter Gabriel.

Now I see why everybody has fallen in love with WALL-E!

My family has been waiting a long time for this DVD to come out and we have watched it three times in two days.  It is the cutest movie!  I love how there is little dialog so you have to pay attention. And that even in the worst of times love and friendship does still exist.  I guess it is true what they say about cockroaches too!  Watch it!

Hey good idea maybe I'll watch it again -- there's probably alot of stuff I missed the first time around.  Times like this are when I wish I had a good TV.

I have heard such great things about this movie.  Even with minimal dialogue, I've heard it's very intelligent, even existential.

I've currently got the Blu-ray at the top of my Netflix queue!

I didn't expect to, but I LOVED it!  I was impressed with how my young daughters paid attention throughout this movie and they laughed hysterically!  I am sure this will be one of those that we watch again and again.

My 5-yr.-old grandson planned his whole summer around the premiere of Wall-E. Vacation? No, I can't. I'm going to see Wall-E.

His mom helped him make a Wall-E costume for Halloween:

And he somehow got his 3-yr.-old brother to be Eve.

How cute!  I guess you know what to get him for Christmas -- if he can wait that long!
