Being the good Pixar stock holder that I am, I watched WALL-E last night. Aside from all of the typical physics impossibilities, and the fact that it was essentially one big iBro advertisement, I very was pleasantly surprised. WALL-E was pretty fucking awesome. I mean, I expect a fun movie from Pixar, but with insane computer graphics becoming more and more commonplace, they’ve had to team up with Disney for some help with the other stuff, so you never know. As I’m sure everyone already knows, it was about these little guys here:
