Haha I thought its pretty cool how wall-e isnt a typical film which has a conflict that needs to be resolved right from the beginning. The first half of wall-e is simply enjoying the beauty of everything, the little amusing parts and stuff. Getting to know wall-e basically. As a result, the 'conflict' that happens later becomes not so much of a conflict as instead a supplement to the entire movie, where instead of diverting the attention away, it builds the focus around the little robot whos romantic at heart.
On another note, sore gums and ulcer, 2 days before my run. It dehydrates me and thats not good =(.
