Wall-EYes, yet another classic from Pixar. As I have never been much of a fan of animated movies, nor of kids movies in general, I have always had some skepticism towards Pixar… Especially as I have always view computer animation to be some evil step-child of “actual” animation. But, admittedly, their films are the best modern American animated kids movies, bar none, and Wall-E was no exception. Not only are their animations utterly eye-catching, but the stories are sincere and interesting to a depth that other studios just can’t seem to manage.

For Wall-E we take a look into Earth’s future, where humans live purely consumer lives, aided by the horrible mega-corporation that controls everything, Buy-N-Large. After years of this, there comes a point where the world is basically covered in trash. Buy-N-Large decides that things need to be cleaned up so they come up with the idea of sending the worlds population on a multi-year space cruise, during which they will set an army of robots to clean up all of that trash.

Cut to 700 years later and one poor little robot, Wall-E. This little robot (his name is actually just his model, he is a Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth Class) seems to be the last one left cleaning up the trash in an otherwise empty world. The cruising population never returned and the other robots broke down so he wander his cities with his only friend (a cockroach) and compacts trash and collect trinkets.

Wall-E



One day though, a ship comes to visit. And not only does this ship come, but it brings with it an object for Wall-E’s attention… Something to focus on besides his towers of trash and his collections of knick-knacks. Of course, it also brings with it all of the other things that mysterious ships bring: danger, excitement, love and confusion and, possibly, a chance to take an adventure like no other!

Wall-E



Very reminiscent of Idiocracy with its big mountains of garbage, portrayals of ridiculous levels of mind-numbing consumerism and a statement of the terribly shallow (yet not implausible enough) future for humanity. They might actually make a fun double feature! But on it’s own, Wall-E is great fun to look at, quite entertaining and has some very nicely done science fiction elements.
