WALL - E , the Movie



Lady K and I saw this beautifully done movie this morning. We've been anxiously waiting to see it for a very long time and were rewarded for the wait. WALL-E stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifters -- Earth Class and he is basically the last of his kind on Earth. Only other inhabitants are cockroaches, go figure. Humans have left Earth on a hewgah 'Loveboat' style space ship (Lido deck and all) with the promise that they will come back to recolonize. These are made by the CEO of Buy & Large (love this!) who also appears to be a President type leader, too. Robots have taken over everything to do with anything, leaving humans to be slothlike riding in these moving recliners with vid screens in front of their faces at all times.

WALL-E takes his job on Earth seriously, while collecting souvenirs for his hut. He meets another robot, EVE, a very sleek search robot, when she is dropped off by a ship to complete her directive, looking for life forms (preferably green). She gets retrieved after finding said directive and WALL-E follows.

WALL-E goes about inadvertantly changing lives and opening eyes for both the humans and the robots......and, one hopes, the audience. It's a 'green' message without being preachy.

Lady K and I both give WALL-E five beans!!!

I hadn't heard a thing about this movie, probably because we have no theater. I love your bean-counting method of approval. :)

Vickie glad you liked the movie!

I tried to go to your post for today but got a message that the page doesn't exist. Hmmm...

Wall-E totally looks like the robot from "Short Circuit"... minus the cheesy 80's style of course
