    What a wonderful birthday present. I got it today just for me.

    The movie is as touching as ever, and the 3 disc version has a ton of special features.

    Who else picked it up? If you haven't, go get it. If you caught it in theaters, it's worth owning, if you haven't seen it, it's well worth the time and money.

    I had it my my hand, but decided to wait until I know if I'm going to get a PS3 anytime soon. If so, I'll get the BD instead.

    This film, so rich in colour, deserves the hi def treatment. Straight to Blu Ray for you my old son.

    But it isn't out in Aus yet :(

    I loved the movie in theatres but just don't have the money right now for the DVD. If it goes on sale for Black Friday, or I see it in the bargain bin in the future, I'll definitely pick it up.

    Although, I am tempted to just wait to get it until I have an HD TV and a Blu-Ray player (late next year).

    I'm tempted. I'm holding out right now to see if it is on sale next week or on Black Friday. I want the 3-disk set but damn is $30-35 a little too much. All it is is a two disk set with a digital copy. I'd rather have a $25 two disk set and skip the digital copy.

    We got the 3 disk digital copy version. The box itself is epic.

    Ordered the Blu-Ray yesterday from deep discount because Kristen liked it. It will look pretty too. Not too thrilled about the movie though.

    Got it today and finally watched it. It is a good movie that actually had something to say, something I haven't seen in a pixar movie since Toy Story. I love all the pixar movies, but this and Toy Story go to the top for me.

    Wear and tear. They just broke down after 700 years. Wall-E just scavenged parts and developed a personality.

    It's heartwarming, heartbreaking, sweet, sad, and ultimately hopeful.

    That being said, I have two criticisms of the movie.
    1.) Too short.
    2.) Not enough time with it being just Wall-E and Eve. (there was so much potential for an even bigger story between the two, but when the humans came into the picture, they kinda stifled it for me.)

    I loved the movie, I felt so terrible for Wall-E after 700 years of solitude. If it wasn't for his cockroach, he would be truly alone.

    I haven't had a movie like this make me this teary eyed since Monsters Inc, when Sully finally opens the door to Boo's room just before the credits.

    That's what a lot of Pixar movies had been missing...heart. Monsters Inc had it, and Wall-E has MInc's level of quality when it comes to the heart department.

    When Wall-E rocked himself to sleep, all you want to do is reach in the screen and hug him.

    One plus: Animated Swindle makes an appearance.









    Okay, just the guy who did his voice, but he's still just as slimy and charming as ever. Fred Willard is t3h awesome.

    Got it on Bluray on Saturday. It looks amazing in HD, but I figured it would because I saw it in a digital theater. And the movie itself is just right. I love the little short that comes with it, about the repair robot.

    The Burn-E short is hilarious once you've seen the movie. Remember the little bot that gets shut out of the ship when Wall-E and Eve fly back in from the escape pod launch. He gets his own hilarious short.

    What really saddens me is you have all these Hollywood movie studios out there and the ONLY one who can do a fantastic story and have real depth to it is making kids movies! I have not disliked a single one of their movies ever. Haven't gotten Bug's Life, but I'm asking for it for Christmas. I own the SE of Cars, Toy Story 1+2 3-disk set, Monsters Inc, 3 disk Wall-E, Finding Nemo, Ratatoulie, etc. Fantastic movies.
