At home, my mom and dad; husband and I; and sister / brother-in-law -- three households, each home to at least one electrical engineer -- each has a copy of this. It's one of our favorites.
It's a great message and storyline; we enjoy Pixar's sense of humor; and the sound effects, voice casting and musical score are fantastic. Seriously, I love the musical score! It's beautiful, and I often hear parts of the score playing in my head after watching the movie. This movie also contains the best usage of Apple's Machintosh boot-up "dong" sound I've ever heard -- kinda a joke in the movie, if you watch it. Overall, a job well-done, imo.
In my opinion, Sigourney Weaver's "Caution: Rogue Robots" line as the voice of the Axiom spaceship may end up her best line ever, although my personal favorite exchange is between Auto the autopilot and the Captain:
Auto: "On the Axiom, we will survive."
The Captain: "I don't wanna survive. I WANNA LIVE!"
Words to live by, imo. = )
A note to parents: Does this movie deserve a G rating? Well, there is some violence and pistol usage (and couple explosions from the gun blasts) in the movie. No human characters end up seriously harmed, although one robot character -- a villain -- does "die" resisting the protagonists in the story. (There is a moment of peril in the movie, but the protagonists live.) Other than that, Wall-E does end up putting a bra in his "interesting finds" lunchbox, and Eve does scan a port-o-john. That's about it. But, if you would wish to avoid the movie, due to gun violence, I can certainly respect that.
For what it's worth, our three-year-old likes this movie and watches it fairly often. But, we also watch it with her, and she is not super-sensitive or afraid of much of anything.
Another factor to consider: This movie goes long stretches with no dialog. Personally, I've used that time to describe to my daughter what's been going on, and to voice what some of the robots are thinking. (You can tell by their actions and demeanor.) So, I've used this movie as a tool to help my daughter develop listening skills -- which have over time grown into speaking skills. This is unusual to find in any movie, so I appreciate it.
As an added bonus, the movie also helps introduce our young daughter to the concepts of a round earth, rocketry, robotics and outer space / space exploration.
So, I would say that overall, Wall-E is entertaining and can also function as a great teaching tool if you're just creative with it.
This movie is one of the greatest works of art I’ve been privileged to know EVER.
Without repeating the plot you basically know, here are the outstanding features:
Lack of dialogue. This movie manages to tell a story with barely any dialogue. How? Gotta watch it to believe it. Best of all, the main characters are robots and yet they still manage to develop a relationship - again, without dialogue.
This story is futuristic, and takes place in the larger galaxy, but stays grounded in the world as we know it. It takes a bit into the movie to show the greater context of where humanity is at, but there’s no confusion. That’s Pixar’s talent - to take you slowly thru a beautiful story without letting you question where you’re at but without giving away where you’re going.
So yes, you should watch this movie. Fast.
The DVD comes with two shorts - Presto, an unrelated short film that’s really cute, and Burn-E, a short episode about another robot in the Wall-E world, showing his story in a really humorous way.
Wall-E is a movie about a robot that was made to collect trash that we (humans) have caked the earth in. While Wall-E and his many brothers are cleaning the earth the humans take a space cruise and never come back. Fast forward 700 years, Wall-E is the only robot left working, all the other's have broken down, and he is sentient.
One day a spaceship comes and drops off another robot and Wall-E is infatuated with her, which she doesn't seem to let bother her after a while. They become friends and when she suddenly shuts down Wall-E is heart broken. The spaceship returns for her and Wall-E finds himself on a journey that will have consequences far beyond what one little robot could imagine.
