we saw wall-E. different, clever, and cute. our family liked it very much...although if it were any longer, i might have gotten antsy. there was very little dialog except for "Eeeevah" and "Waaaall-ey?" i can't believe they were able to work romance into these robots! lotsa tender moments flower

HAHA. i totally agree with what Muriel said...your post made me LOL in work ..hahaha

it was a cute film...but like muriel said the lack of dialogue was both impressive and kinda offputting.

"eeeeevah"
"walll-ey?"
HAHAHA- right on muriel... haha

it had a good message about getting off our butts and computers and doing stuff so that was cool

but i think the ending was kinda anticlimatic for me haha
idk..maybe it was just me..

i like action movies! i wanna see both of those also, karen

........................ what.

... am I the only one who thought this movie was A++++++++++++++++++++ bananas peaches cherries and cream totally brilliant?? also, NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION. it's what's for breakfast it's like 80% of real-life communication or greater. a la much of Wallace & Gromit & all of Tom & Jerry takes genius storytelling skillz etc etc

Um. But I'm partial also because I kind of have a thing for stories set in the dreary post-apocalyptic future. *sob* why am I such a geek. I don't know, it always moves me. And I went in with low expectations - maybe that helped.

Also, I thought the soundtrack was stunning. I plan to buy it, if it ever comes out.

yes the soundtrack was stunning

so was all that crazy production/music/digital engineering... the credits for engineers at the end was awesome

the movie was awesome (because it was so nonverbal which takes skills) and it struck a chord in me as well as many other unharmonical notes.. like.. why did they have to have romance in the film? and so many things didn't add up or make sense... like where does the ship get its fuel from to survive for 700 years? and where do people get their air? and if people don't see each other, how do they reproduce? and why weren't there kids? there were only babies... or old people for that matter... and the ending was a butt and you could tell they made it to fit the characteristic happy ending of every disney movie. I for one think wall-e should've never come back to his senses (because that's real life!) and it should've ended with the plant in the shoe.. to symbolize where society is today in the mystery of life and restoration (or lack thereof) from a post-apocalyptic world.
or
it should've ended with Jesus coming from the sky and saying, "I'm baaaaaaaaaack!"

My theories:

- On the romance: every work of fiction centered on artificial intelligence begs the question, "what is human?" (yeah SO NOT GOING THERE RIGHT NOW 9000+ pg essay no thank u). aaaanyway. the main characters are obviously avatars of us humans. the backdrop of a cavernous world all-but-completely devoid of life is analogous to the loneliness that everyone experiences in a materialistic society. there's some vague study that says over 80% of Americans confess to struggling with feelings of deep loneliness at some point in their lives, blah blah. if you want to ask, "why romance," maybe first consider, "why NOT romance?" if there was no romance in this story, there goes 90% of the joy and humor of it. romance = lulz, color, character development... and life. please do not tell me you aint never had fourth grade health class. anyway, you know the real, non-BS answer to this question though, right? robots in love = platform for pixar flexing their huge animation muscles / joshua's bowflex. still, i'd like to think that somebody somewhere up there had good intentions - springing from a "pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith," even.

- Where does the ship get its fuel to survive for 700 years:
Human waste. ;D ;D ;D

- Where do people get their air:
Technology. It came a long way, OK?

- If people don't see each other, how do they reproduce?
Test tubes, invitrofertilization, etc. Workin' it since the 20th Century, baby.

- Where were the kids? There were only babies / adults.
At home on their laptops posting on CASC Worship Team forum.

- Why Disney happy ending blah blah:
This one was pure Pixar, actually. No Disney relations at all.

- Wall-E should never have come back to his senses, so unreal, blah blah:
Yeah, because that would have REALLY SUCKED, right? I'm sure that kind of ending would have brought the tomatometer down by at least 12%. But seriously, I would say that most of the time, that kind of convenient ending would be hard to swallow. But the story is really about life overcoming the odds. <--(Dare I say the receptivity / longing for spiritual reality. DO WANT JESUS, yes plz.) Miracles happen, etc... and it works, imo.

- Film should have ended with the plant in the shoe:
It did. With the human plant... in the bootshell of Earth. Once again, this film's warring cry is, "LIFE - IT IS PRECIOUS AND WORTH FIGHTING FOR etc etc" [/ok cheesiness end].

Of course, I could be reading too much into any / all of this, so uhh... feel free to disagree / argue back. This is the stuff real forums are made of... I really like this kind of thing. Even if it's just for fun, I like defending my ideas [/PROVING WHY I AM RIGHT AHA ER I MEAN down you fleshly impulse]. Actually, I am equally satisfied when someone can totally and completely make me eat my own words. my masochist side whyyy ...But if you leave even one opening, I will attack it because I'm mean like that.

And why do I fail at life. -getting back to work now /o/-

Well,

in general I liked the movie, thought it was a decent movie with a message-ish thing at the end, even if it didn't get me very excited.

As far as wall-e coming back to life is concerned, it is definitely unrealistic, although that can't be said conclusively since we don't know where robots in their century store their memory and whether or not that was actually destroyed when he was crushed. BUT, I distinctly remember watching the part where he restarted as a personalityless robot (why did old wall-e have a personality and new wall-e have none at all anyways) and thinking ZOMG GEY MOVIE I CANT BELIEVE YOU KILLED WALLE ZOMG GEY *STAB STAB STAB STAB STAB*
so even if it was unlikely, I think it was necessary to revive wall-e because people don't watch cartoons for realistic portrayals, they would just watch real life.

To answer the question of how the ship works and where the children are:
children in between the ages of baby and fat adult are chained to hamster wheels which power the ship and which creates in them super fast metabolism so that when they become adults and have their memories wiped about their scarring childhood their bodies are no longer using the massive amounts of calories they consume and turn it into soft squishy glorious fat

If I have to critique something about the movie, it would have to be the somewhat forced introduction of the main computer frame as the villain. The ineptitude of this villain is also somewhat disconcerting since if you're going to have a main villain and make him the robot that basically has absolute control of the ship...did he really get beaten by a super fat co-captain who should not have any leg muscles...or any muscles for that matter.

Also, why was wall-e the only wall-e alive? why were there so many dead wall-e's.

Also, dose pedophilia apply to robots? because if so wall-e is gonna get put in jail, I mean he's like a few centuries older than eve. does gender apply either? since none of the other robots had genders...hmm

Haha... wow, Peter. Um.

I like the idea of human hamster wheels. I could sure use one of those I MEAN.

I actually liked the villain. I thought he was sufficiently creepy (soulless evil Mr. Smith robot vibe etc.) and ah ... villany.

Wall-E is the only one of his kind left alive because he's NEO THE CHOSEN ONE. Obviously.

... No comment on robo-pedophilia.
