    The point in WALL-E is the same as that in 2001 – Auto, like HAL, does *not* malfunction – they are both driven to what they do by conflicting primary program directives.

    I saw the first trailer for Wall*E, and thought there was nothing there for me to see. After seeing the second, muchly improved trailer, I thought perhaps on a slow afternoon I might go see it.I just got home 20 minutes ago from seeing it. The cartoon before the start of the movie was better than the movie, and there is no reason to see this movie in the theater. It's good, but not good enough that one couldn't wait for the dvd, sure to be out in time for Christmas.
