That's good news. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of Pixar's films so far. Definitely looking forward to this one.

I went to see it. It was pretty good, thought it was a little slow. Of course, I had a headache when watching it, so that may have made it seem slower than normal. But yeah, I still enjoyed it, and I can't wait to have it on Blu-ray. So pretty.

Took both kids to see Wall-E today and we all enjoyed it. Steven watched with rapt attention, but he said he didn't like it a lot because it was a little bit scary. The secret to keeping a 2.5 and a 4.5 year-old settled for en entire film is to go to a late show (7:50pm). As a bonus, the fireworks were only half-over when the movie let out. \:\)

Unfortunately, we saw it at the small theater in-town. It was a smallish screen and only stereo sound. I'll have it on DVD (or better?) when it's released, for sure.

I was surprised that the theater I saw it at used a DLP projector. One of the theaters has been using a DLP projector to show stuff before the feature for a while now, but this one actually played Wall-E using a DLP projector, and it looked very very good. The sound, unfortunately, didn't match the theater, so I can't wait to be able to feel the sound effects at home.

Our theater is now using a separate projector for it's pre-show garbage. It's not DLP though as you can see the screen door effect something awful. Had it not switched to the 'real' projector when the previews hit, I was ready to walk out and demand my money back.

Yeah, mine did that a while back and I'm like "No way!" during the ads, but luckily the real show was on a better projector.

Nice avatar, by the way ...

Peter, I didn't know your kids were those ages. Now we have to get my 2.9 year old to meet up with them! They can swap stories about how funny (and modest) their dads are ...

According to my kids, I tell the best stories. \:\) About a year ago, I got sick of reading the same books over and over and over. Now the routine is that they each get to pick one book (as long as I didn't read it yesterday), and then they get tucked in and I tell them a Daddy Story. The famous and mush looked forward to Daddy Story is always different, but sometimes the same cast of characters lasts a few bedtimes. I really look forward to it, and sometimes I think they're so good I think I should start a blog just to write them down for posterity. \:\)
