#98 DZP - WALL-E

In a distant, but not so unrealistic future, where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot has been left to clean up the mess. Mesmerized with trinkets of Earth's history and show tunes, WALL-E is alone on Earth except for a sprightly pet cockroach. One day, Eve, a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to Earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL-E falls in love with Eve. WALL-E rescues Eve from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her "directive" Eve takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL-E, doesn't understand what has happened to his new friend, but true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightning, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim Eve, but WALL-E, out of love or loneliness hitches a ride on the outside of the ship to rescue Eve. The ship arrives back at a large space cruise ship, which is carrying all of the humans who evacuated Earth 700 years earlier. The people of Earth ride around this space resort on hovering chairs which give them a constant feed of TV and video chatting. They drink all of their meals through a straw out of laziness and/or bone loss, and are all so fat that they can barely move. When the auto-pilot computer, acting on hastily given instructions sent many centuries before, tries to prevent the people of Earth from returning, by stealing the plant, WALL-E, Eve, the portly captain, and a band of broken robots stage a mutiny.

Let me just say: CUTEST MOVIE EEVV-AAAA!!!!!
Probably the cutest Pixar movie I've seen... since like Cars! I still can't believe that I didn't see this movie sooner. It was on the list of movies needed to see, but just haven't gotten around to getting it.

Now of course everyone LOVES Walle, but there are quirky habits of collecting knickknacks from the mountains of trash, domesticating a lone cockroach (the ONLY cockroach I find cute), and singing to the show tunes of Hello Dolly! Makes you wish you had a Walle of your own! I loved the lunch pail, wipers on his eyes, the cockroach's twinkie, him dancing around, sunning himself...

I'm super excited to buy this movie and watch it over and over again! (Yes, I do that... just like I did that with Cars and Monsters Inc.)
