Wall-E C

Wall-E was a good movie, don't get me wrong. But I had such high expectations that I was a bit disappointed. I liked the idea of the movie-- the loud-and-clear warning that if we don't change our habits, our world might end up like that in Wall-Es. Wall-E was funny, and the animation was 'pretty'. The movie started out great, but I became distracted by irrational actions by characters that hadn't been introduced enough yet, a physics engine going bad somewhere halfway through the movie, and the climax of the movie came and went faster than I could blink. Come on Pixar, you could have done better than that. And what was up with all the Apple product placement? Step away from the animators, Steve Jobs.

You expect way too much out of a G movie. I was happy to see Wall-E had a clear story line and fairly blatant political commentary.

As for the Apple product placement, maybe it was a little mischievous. But hey, maybe the animators fought back by limiting apple's market share in the future to only trash compactors.
