Wall-E may not be Crap-E
I know you hear me bitch and moan about CGI all the time, but if you're still getting your panties in a bunch to see CGI animals doing people things, then I've got something warm and buttery you can choke on. Movie popcorn. Anyway, CGI can be done tastefully, and Pixar usually shows us how. I'm slightly excited about Wall-E, however don't think I can't find SOMETHING to complain about. One thing that irks me about Pixar is how John Lasseter, czar of Pixar, loves patting himself on the back about how original all his movies are. Lemme show you how original Wall-E is...see Johnny-5 from Short Circuit below.
Hell, even the promotional posters are damn near identical copies. Don't think you can sneak one past me Disney...
Here's the trailer in case you weren't excited yet.
PS - Hey John Lasseter; "Nosotros kick 'yo butt, nosotros kick 'yo face, nosotros kick 'yo balls in to ou-ter spppaaaccee!"
