We just couldn’t let the day go by without mentioning one of our fave movies of the year that was released today. How could you not love “Wall-E?” If you order the Blu-ray 3 disc deluxe version from Amazon, you also get access to BD Live, a free download for a mere $24.99. It comes with the short “Burn-E.” That will keep the little nippers busy while you get ready to tell them that this holiday may be slimmer than the last. You can also order a regular one disc widescreen DVD at a decent $14.99.
