WALL-E (2008)

WALL-E (2008) — I love everything about this movie: the Charlie Chaplin-esque “silent” love story, the cute cockroach [between this movie and Ratatouille, Pixar seems to be going out of their way to make vermin adorable], the unsubtle biting social commentary and underlying environmental message that hits you over the head and still manages not to feel too preachy, Sigourney Weaver who once battled her ship’s computer in Alien now playing a ship’s computer, Jeff Garlin, John Ratzenberger, and Kathy Najimy as people learning for the first time that there’s more to life than being a pampered blob, the fact that the evil machine towards the end was actually played by a machine, Thomas Newman’s magnificent score, robot dancing [and not the cheesy 80s kind], Fred Willard as the affable incarnation of irresponsible corporatism, the best use ever of the music from Hello, Dolly! (I would argue even better than the movie Hello, Dolly!), the misfit robots… I could go on for about 98 minutes.  To conclude exactly as I began, I love everything about this movie.
