The Wall-E DVD reviews are in!

Wall-E DVD

The lucky devils at IGN have gotten their hands on a fresh new copy of the WALL•E DVD before we could, so they got to review it first.  Here’s what they had to say about it:

WALL•E is the kind of movie that you spend months anticipating and then have nothing to say about it when you finally see it. A masterpiece on par with Pixar’s very best films, Andrew Stanton’s overdue follow-up to Finding Nemo is everything one could possibly want from a film about a robot finding love, and even more. But the problem is that its substance is all so visible and understandable that it demands, and needs, no further analysis. All of which is why the best that should be said about it is it’s wonderful, and you should see it as soon as possible.
