Sharing is Caring - Movies: "WALL·E" from Disney/Pixar

One of the most amazing movies I have ever seen was "Wall-E" by Disney/Pixar.  Many, many of Pixar movies are wonderful, creative, original, and perfect in their own ways, including (but not limited to) Finding Nemo, Up, The Incredibles, and Toy Story.  But my favorite, by far, is 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."

Some screenshots from the movie show some of its charm and character that is brought to the big screen in a wonderful way:

Wall-E's curiosity and wonder is monumental, and is constantly captured throughout the film.
His determination exceeds that of many humans both in the movie, and in the world today as well.
The love story between these two robots (inanimate objects, mind you) is one of the most cherished love stories ever told.  These two have chemistry on screen that rivals that of the most romantic movies.  And hey, even this is a better love story than "Twilight."
And then of course, Wall-E's humor can not be beat.

Fun, entertaining, heartwarming, and great for the whole family, Wall-E is - to this day - one of my favorite movies of all-time, and I hope that he can bring enjoyment to your movie night sometime as well!
