(Newser) – Stunning animation, an endearing love story, and a compelling look at mankind’s future make Pixar’s Wall-E one of the best films of the year, critics agree. “This is getting to sound like a broken record: Pixar Animation Studios has just topped itself. Again,” Kirk Honeycutt writes in the Hollywood Reporter. This movie is on the must-see list for kids and adults alike, critics say.

The story of the last robot left on a deserted Earth is “a love letter to the possibilities of the movie medium and a dazzling demonstration of how computers can create a photorealistic world,” writes Joe Morgenstern in the Wall Street Journal. “Some day, there will be college courses devoted to this movie,” Lou Lumenick writes in the New York Post.
