While we're on the topic of movies, I have to give props to the best one I've seen this summer. It's "Wall-E," hands down. First, it's like nothing I've come to expect from Pixar, which has produced its share of classics. It's a strange, beautiful tale full of heart and even romance. Eve, the spunky (Japanese?) female robot who bowls Wall-E over, is particularly fascinating to watch. She's like an flying, trigger-happy creation from the mind of Steve Jobs.
Every member of our household, from age 3 to 41, loved this film. We've seen it twice. And if you have any idea of how much it costs a family of four to go to the movies (even a matinee), then you know we must have really been into "Wall-E." I can't wait for the DVD extras!
