WALL-E

WALL-E has been alone on earth for 700 years, and he's lonely.

WALL-E has been alone on Earth for 700 years, and he's lonely.

Last night, Marcela and I caught the late showing of Disney-PIXAR’s WALL-E.  I had heard some good reviews about the movie, and the Internet Movie Data Base currently has a very high user rating for the movie.  The official movie site has some cool games, character background, and trailers.  This movie was very thoughtful, even showing that the more attached we become to technology, the less we are able to care for ourselves.  The movie focuses on a robot named WALL-E (Waste Allocation Lift Loader, Earth-Class) whose directive is to clean up the trash on Earth one little cube at a time.  Apparently he is the only robot left on the planet who is functional.  After all these years, he has developed a glitch which is a personality.  He repairs himself with spare parts from all the other “WALL-E” units that have broken down and has become a bit curious about things.  This leads him to become a pack-rat.  It’s also the first movie that I can think of in which a cockroach becomes a lovable character.  The animation is done as well as any movie I have seen before.  For the rest of the story, you will have to watch it yourself.  It’s a film that is completely family/kid friendly but is enjoyable for the adults to watch as well.  Marcela and I recommend this to anyone who likes sci-fi, love stories, technology, and “Disney stuff”.

If you want more info on this movie, this guy does a more detailed review that’s worth a look.
