...stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class. 'He' basically was left on earth to clean up the mess (trash) from products sold by Buy N Large corporation. The only friend he has is a cockroach. All the humans left earth in a gigantic ship Axiom. One day, EVE (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator), a far more advanced and sleek robot, came to earth to find plant life so as to determine if earth is ready to support human life once again. Once you see her, you know she resembles the iPod while Wall-E resembles the ugly mp3 players design out there in the market today. Hehe!

Anyway, so I don't want to create too much spoilers here, just enough descriptions for you to go watch the movie. Wall-E followed her back to the Axiom and met all kinds of different robots made for different functions to aid the human beings. The humans lost bone mass after living in micro-gravity for hundreds of years, making them too obese to stand or even move around without the robotic help.

Basically, the movie is predicting and revealing the deep shit our planet will face in the future if we continue to pollute it like how we can't stop today. We have robots to solve the problem and still creating more trash even in space. Mountains and high rises of trash everywhere.

This story is about:
-robotic emotions and love
-pollution and trash
-cold and loneliness earth
-futuristic life
-over-reliant on robots

Go watch it yourself! It is not your everyday happy-go-lucky animated film but I welcome the difference. As always before the film, Pixar will show the short film Presto. After watching the last Pixar film, Ratatouille, I thought they have shown the limits of CG (Computer Graphics). This one somehow turns into a Wii and focuses more into the storyline more than the graphics. The graphics are nice but there are nothing which I had never seen before. I am fine with it as they take a different approach.

Before the movie, I also saw the trailer from DreamWorks on Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. After Kung Fu Panda, they will be giving us more movies this year. It is nice to see Madagascar back as I enjoyed the first one. Hope it will be even better.
