[Wheezy smiling widely. Long pause before he speaks.]
Robots falling in love? There's a lot to like about the new Pixar film WALL-E.
[wheezywaiter chips and salsa intro can be seen (but not heard) under a new intro that says 'Wheezy Waiter Takes On July... ...5 days a week...' over a calendar of July. Art Brut's song "Bad Weekend" plays over the intro. "Popular culture no longer applies to me."]

And yes, this film has very little dialogue but guess what? I don't need no stinking dialogue.
Who says popular films can't be art? WALL-E is magical.
I was so close to crying at pivotal moments in this film. And although I didn't fully break out and cry (I haven't cried since I was 10, mind you), I never felt so much emotion in my heart.
The robots were all lovable. Except for the enemy robots, who, although not lovable, except for one, looked really cool.
They created art.
I'd also like to add that this is the perfect date movie.
If you just sit there and let the film wash over you, you've only had a pleasurable experience, not unlike a smooth hover-chair ride. But if you engage with WALL-E, you can take away more. You need to get out of your hover-chair to do it, though. So you can take a look at the stars outside.
WALL-E is the movie experience I've been looking for. I haven't seen a new film this richly entertaining, thrilling, touching, and satisfying since Spiderman 2.
