After watching the trailer of WALL-E, I knew it was going to be special.

You can always expect brilliant ideas from the digital geniuses at Pixar.

For the first part of the film, they used no verbal dialog, and generated belly laughs and tears from tiny gestures with just visual story telling.

WALL-E is purely magical and may well be a contender for the best picture of the year.

It would sure get my vote right now.

He's a self-contained trash compactor on treads, cleaning up the mess we left behind.

WALL-E is fantastic!

The visuals alone are worth the price of admission.

Pixar works wonders with little plot and little sound, and although young ones may squirm in their seats from lack of dialogue, you may be assured the older patrons are doing the same from the Hello Dolly references.

Pixar, the animated studio, has released eight consecutive hits since 1995, for a world-wide total of about $4.3 billion.

Now comes the work of the ninth Pixar movie, called WALL-E -- a visually stunning science fiction love story about a lonely garbage-compacting robot left behind on a refuse-covered, water-depleted Earth after mankind evacuates to giant spaceships orbiting the planet, leaving WALL-E to clean up the mess on Earth.

The robot star has worked hard for 700 years, making cubes of compacted trash with his waste load lifter.

This is a smart, classy, and funny Pixar parable tale that might naturally occur in the future -- if we don't clean up our act.
