Wall-E DVD Review

Wall-E is a lonely robot left on Earth with a difficult directive—it’s his job to clean up the mess! It was supposed to take five years to clean up the polluted planet, but seven hundred have passed and Earth is still a wasteland of trash heaps, collapsed skyscrapers and abandoned highways. Meanwhile, mankind lives on the Axiom, a fully automated space ship that caters to their every whim. The original plan was to wait for Earth’s toxicity levels to lower enough to sustain life again, but after 700 years of relying on the Axiom, mankind seems less interested in returning to Earth and more interested in sucking back the latest liquefied fastfood.

Solo Mission

All this time, WALL-E has been working alone to clean up the mess, with no friends save a resilient cockroach. WALL-E amuses himself collecting human bric-a-brac like paddle balls, sporks and empty engagement ring boxes, but after repeat viewings of an old VHS copy of the classic movie-musical, Hello Dolly!, WALL-E starts to crave companionship.

Digital Love

When EVE, the probe robot, is deployed on Earth to search for life, WALL-E is instantly smitten. He tries to court the sleek, egg-shaped robot, but the blaster-happy EVE is focused on her directive and ignores WALL-E until much later when he saves her from a dangerous dust storm. Soon after, the probe ship returns to collect EVE and WALL-E stows aboard, following his crush into space and onto the Axiom where the two robots must find a way to remind humanity of the injured planet it left behind.

DVD Special Features

WALL-E comes with 2 discs of bonus features including two hilarious new shorts, BURN-E—a new robot adventure, and Presto—a cute vignette about a magician and his disgruntled rabbit. The DVDs are crammed full with lots of deleted scenes, “Making Of” featurettes, and fun, interactive games like the Lots of Bots Storybook.

The Bottom Line

WALL-E is a smart, touching movie about love and connection, and the importance of sustaining the planet—and I’m not kidding when I say those expressive binocular eyes will break your heart. Your prime directive should be seeing this movie!

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

    Finding Nemo, only because Finding Dory took awhile to establish itself.
