for making me care about a lonely robot… and maybe the planet too.
Every time I see a Pixar movie, I find myself saying, “They have done it again.”Â I am almost waiting for them to release a film that isn’t great… but don’t get me wrong, I love the great.
WALL-E is the story of a robot (the title is his name/model), possibly the last of his kind, left on Earth to clean up the mess while humanity took off into space for a vacation while the hard work got done.Â Its that ‘last of his kind’ thing that hits home, and as usual the Pixar people manage to bring life to the non-living.Â WALL-E goes to work cleaning up the mess (compressing junk into cubes and stacking the cubes as high as skyscrapers) and comes home each night to watch an old musical and dream of something more than what he has.Â Then EVE arrives.Â Another robot, EVE is searching for something on Earth, and WALL-E is stricken with her.Â When she finds what she came for and a spacecraft returns to take her away, WALL-E hitches a ride into space to be with her.
From there, the story takes some nice turns and into some crazy chases and situations.Â I really enjoyed it, and so did all the kids in the theater.Â Its as good as all the other Pixar films.
Oh… and don’t be late to the film.Â In Pixar tradition, there is a short film before WALL-E called Presto, and it is hilarious!
