Directed by Andrew Stanton
Disney and Pixar join forces for this computer-animated tale about a wide-eyed robot that travels to the deepest-reaches of outer space in search of a newfound friend. The year is 2700, and planet Earth has long been inhabitable. For hundreds of years, WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) has been taking out the trash, and collecting precious knick-knacks in order to stave off the boredom of his dreary routine. Little does Wall-E realize that he has recently stumbled onto a secret that could save planet Earth, and once again make the ravaged planet safe for all mankind. When highly advanced search robot EVE makes friends with Wall-E and realizes the value of his remarkable discovery, she excitedly races back to let the humans know that there's hope for their home planet after all. But after centuries alone in space Wall-E can't stand the thought of losing the only friend he's ever known, and eagerly follows her into the deepest reaches of space on the adventure of a lifetime. Along the way, the friendly trash-collecting robot that has always known what he was made for gradually begins to understand what he was meant for. Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton returns to the helm for this family-friendly sci-fi adventure featuring the voices of Fred Willard, Jeff Garlin, and Ben Burtt. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

"Make no mistake, 2008 was the year of the woman. From politics to multiplex, they were the most newsworthy. At the box office, week after week brought about stories about how, mother of all shockers, women enjoy going to the movies too. From summer “event movies” (usually an exclusive boys tree house where "No Gurlz Allowd"), to record-breaking such as best opening for a female director, women were the new black at the box office.

"I always go into Pixar movies with the thought that they can’t really top the last few entries. In the case of WALL-E, I figured, it couldn’t actually be an improvement over The Incredibles, Cars and Ratatouille. I, of course, was wrong. WALL-E is a robot who has been left on Earth after the humans deserted the planet because of the accumulation of literally mountains of trash. Th " [More]

"We still have a couple of weeks ago, but it's time for our annual discussion (which never gets very far, but I'm an optimist) about which fantasy movies from the past year were our favorites! For reference, as a refresher, use the Fantasy to Look Forward to (2008) list, because this list will disappear once the year does. I realize that some of the entries on that list actually have later release dates. When I take the list away, I'll shuffle some of those around, even if " [More]

A G-rated synthesis of A.I., Idiocracy, 2001, and Chaplin's Modern Times, WALL-E tells the tale of a robot left behind to clean up Earth while the human race bides its time in space, waiting for machines to fix the mess they've left behind. But this being Pixar, the deeper issues are handled just as expertly as the conventional storyline, which in this case is a simple love story between two robots. A first-time viewer could be forgiven for not grasping the consistent vision of WALL-E's subtext on a first viewing, primarily because the look of the film is so detailed and accomplished that you can be awestruck just admiring the visual, and aural, craftsmanship. Hiring ace cinematographer Roger Deakins as a "consultant" paid off like a winning lottery ticket. The opening passages of the film -- on an Earth populated by nothing but a robot, a cockroach, and lots of garbage -- have a realism that trumps everything Pixar has done to this point. Oftentimes you forget you're watching an animated movie because of the fluid, realistic camera work. Director Andrew Stanton succeeds grandly not because he's showing off with these nearly dialogue-free sequences, but because he understands how viewers respond to particular lenses and camera maneuvers. He's applying film theory in order to build up an audience's sympathies for his main character, and he does so masterfully. Don't let the phrase "dialogue-free" throw you -- this is far from a silent movie. The flawless and varied sound design -- who knew a robot's voice could have so many different inflections when saying the same few words -- is as much a treat for the ears as the visuals are for the eyes. Like Stanton's previous film, Finding Nemo, WALL-E manages to work at the level of fable by communicating grand themes through the actions of sympathetic characters. This film works as a simple adventure story, and as a love story, but it also works as a rather brilliant comment on the inherent dangers of mass commercialism and the ramifications of humans becoming slothful and lazy because of technology. In this movie, the people of the future look like enormous, babyish blobs -- a device Stanton exploits to great comedic and thematic effect. The entire production has been so brilliantly conceived and executed that it feels as much like an extended Pixar short as it does a feature. Unlike its humans of the future, the movie itself doesn't have an ounce of fat on it. The men and women at Pixar are master jewelers, cutting and polishing their wares to perfection before the world gets to enjoy them. WALL-E is another gem. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide
