27. WALL-E (A+)

The second film in the trilogy. It's okay, but I didn't enjoy it quite as much; if the first one was pretty much a stripped-down story about Clint Eastwood being badass, this one introduces a lot of additional elements and takes a few stabs at having emotional resonance, but they aren't sufficiently developed to really work. Lee Van Cleef as Colonel Mortimer has good presence, I will say. Also, the continued obvious disconnect between the dialogue and the actors' mouthes in a lot of places is distracting.

Also watched WALL-E again, since my nine- and five-year-old cousins were visiting and they hadn't seen it. Still one of the top films of the last decade.
