Doing the same task over and over again, obsessively collecting useless items just because they look funny, empathizing with an insect, replaying just one scene of a forgotten movie, falling hopelessly in love with a femme fatale, never knowing its proper place...

Why didn't they cast me as Wall-E? :D

Watched it with my boyfriend (Aspie) he ADORED it (as did I, until my attention wavered) is it a coincidence that he loves it? Could it be like cocaine for Aspie's?

I am the aforementioned boyfriend.

Can confirm that Wall-E is indeed awesome.

Not just the film itself, but the visuals, the detail, simply staggering.

Ok...I'm all for recycling as much as the next guy, but this movie was just one big public service announcement, making it a stinking pile of filth.
PSAs ruin every movie.
Take Pom Poko for instance...
It was an interesting and charming movie, but the end was just a "save the forest" spiel.
I just don't think it's great to force your opinions on other people's children.

I liked that movie quite a bit myself. Didn't care too much for or about the message (I will agree that trying to force morals into entertainment often makes them work less well than they could otherwise), but Wall-E was adorable. I just wanted to give the puppy-eyed robot a hug. :3 The really sweet scenes between him and Eve made me very happy. I wish more stories (and more real life situations) had that innocent feel to them that the relationship between them did.

Am I the only one that noticed that when it comes to the "Buy'N'Large" mentality, Disney is one of the biggest culprits? :lol:

I felt like Wall-E was like a 70 y.o. person, in love with a 20 y.o. person... :roll:

"If "Wall-E" was a scrappy independent film emerging from, say, the great Ralph Bakshi, the contrast and violent condemnation would've been a total gas. Coming from Pixar/Disney, it feels... discourteous, or, at the very least, corrosive and incompetent. The overall finger of intolerance is wagged with gale force winds here; a fascinating momentum lost on a picture easily 30 minutes overlong."

Very good. :D

Hi, it's not just you. Wall.E appeals to me in every aspect, he is just the cutest and most memorable animated character!

I've rated the film 10/10.

True, it also remindes me of Wal-Mart

I watched it with my siblings and mo last month. I rate the film 10/10 :)

I loved that movie so much, visuals were amazing. And Wall-E appeals to many of us.

While I semi-enjoyed the film immediately after seeing it, the more I thought about it the less sense it made. At this point I kinda hate it, partly because it's so overrated, and partly because I think that it is completely illogical.
