I ♥ Trash Compacting Robots

The Sherbs and I saw WALL-E last night. It was charming. You should go out and see it and continue to make the folks at Pixar rich so they keep making movies like this.

The best part, in my opinion, was that the movie was sustained less by snappy dialogue and throw-away pop culture references (unlike, say, most Dreamworks animated features), but on a more universal humor and joie de vivre. Also, cute robots, and lots of them.

Fun fact: WALL-E has a real human doing his voice. Only one of the other robots is voiced by MacTalk, and I didn't realize it, probably because they modulated it a little to make it have more emotion.
