The company that manages most of the press screenings around here sent me no less than three notes reminding me that Wall·E should be spelled with a dot rather than a hyphen. I’ll do my best to oblige.

I spent about 30 minutes writing a gushing and sentimental post about the film, but decided that no one would want to read it, and that if anyone did, well, I wouldn’t want them to. So instead, I’ll just say that films like Wall·E are, quite simply, the reason I go to the movies, and the reason that, no matter how much terrible stuff I sit through each year, I keep on going — and plan to for as absolutely long as I can.
