I'm sure all of you have already heard of Wall-e, Pixar's latest CGI animation effort.

While the graphics keep getting more and more impressive with every film, the storytelling itself is largely a hit-and-miss affair.

Pixar didn't do too well this time round. There might be creative environments, poignant cultural references littered all over and a coherent theme, but there simply wasn't any lovable character to emphatise with.

Wall-e, after all, is a machine with limited speech and ability to convey affect. In other words, it's a robot.

Overall, there's still alot of entertainment value it this film. But it doesn't match up with the high standards that Pixar had set for itself in the past decade. Oh well, let's wait for the next one.
