I don’t really understand why they thought it was so wonderful. While I did enjoy watching it, it definitely didn’t become a top favorite or anything. I might watch it again sometime. But….. it wasn’t the best of the best, in my opinion.
First off; Wall-E himself. He was very cute and a fun, interesting personality for a clean-up robot (understand it takes strong control of myself to keep from saying ‘droid’ not robot.) While I understand how a robot would want some company after being alone for so many years, I don’t know why the interest was towards love. He’s a robot, for heavens sake. Robot’s don’t really have feelings other than what is programed in them.
Consider C-3PO and R2-D2 when it comes to preforming as they’re programmed. Threepio is always worrying about his parts and is making sure everyone knows what’s going on—that’s his job, that’s how he’s programed. Artoo is made to fix things and help, so he always right there opening doors, pulling things or shooting just the right objects to the people he needs to assist. That’s how he is programed. Neither of the droids do things that is not programed into them, unless commanded strongly by a human they assist and respect (Like Threepio telling Luke it’s against his programming to pretend to be a deity to the Ewoks, but than doing so because Luke insisted).
The animation on the whole was very well done. The story was very creative; but weird. I found it interesting they had live film clips added. Overall, I liked the film. But it’s not a top favorite or anything. I do recommend for a clean film to watch, though. You just might enjoy it a little more than I did.
