i love animation. i just saw kung fu panda last weekend, which was amazingly awesome. in particular, i love pixar's movies. they are fantastically good storytellers. i watch their movies with wide-eyed wonder and feel like i am five years old again. and that is true magic.

and now we have the newest pixar movie, wall-e.

i don't know if you've read any reviews yet, but i've read a few.

check out the summaries from radar online:

"Some day, there will be college courses devoted to this movie." —New York Post

"WALL-E has become 2008's first perfect film..." —Hollywood Chicago

"I must drop my inhibitions about dropping the M word -- especially since I've already used magnificent -- and call WALL-E the masterpiece that it is." —Wall Street Journal

"The idea that a company in the business of mainstream entertainment would make something as creative, substantial and cautionary as WALL-E has to raise your hopes for humanity." —Washington Post

"Enough to restore your sense of wonder not only in movies, but in the universe as well." —MetroMix.com

"The first hour of Wall-E is a crazily inventive, deliriously engaging and almost wordless silent comedy of the sort that Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton used to make." —NPR

"Mixing Chaplinesque delicacy with the architectural grandeur of a Stanley Kubrick film..." —Globe and Mail

"Daring and traditional, groundbreaking and familiar, apocalyptic and sentimental, Wall-E gains strength from embracing contradictions that would destroy other films." —Los Angeles Times

"It can hardly be called a children's film, but a masterpiece of feature-film animation for all ages." —TV Guide

"One of the best movies of the year. Just so beautifully done." —Richard Roeper
