Great Movie, But the Review Gets a Thumbs Down

We went to WALL-E on Saturday. All the critics loved it. It has Christian themes of relationships and perseverance and warnings about self indulgence. So, don't I look shallow that I found the lack of dialogue kind of, you know, boring. Not as boring as Fantasia, that just wouldn't end, but kind of slow.
In the interest of full disclosure, I should probably add I thought ET was overrated, and even though Citizen Kane was groundbreaking in its camera work and storytelling, I thought it was kind of boring, too. So when it comes to movies, I guess I'm like the guy in the old joke who said the radio was wrong, "There's not one car going the wrong way on the freeway, there are hundreds."
