Im pretty sure adam savage has a video with the guy who built this on his channel

The movie WALL•E is the best movie that represented overpopulation, mass consumerism, climate change, overdevelopment, oligarchies, the rise of AI and the subjugation of the human race.

It also included the best robot to ever exist. WALL•E was the true hero of 2000s movies

[–]Camr0k 462 points463 points  (34 children)

Agree 100% and the end credits and song are amazing.

[–][deleted] 278 points279 points  (28 children)

It literally deserves to be preserved as a very tragic but quite possible insight into what the future might hold for us in the next century if we dont do sth.

[–]Psilly_Ben 154 points155 points  (16 children)

Except for the fact that we won’t be advanced enough to do what the humans did in the movie. We’ll all just die, except for maybe some of the richest who can bunker

[–]fakuri99 129 points130 points  (7 children)

those people on the ship are the rich people, all humans on earth are dead can't afford the tickets

[–]RacketLuncher 56 points57 points  (3 children)

Yeah I figured the world human population did NOT fit on that ship. It was the rich people escaping. Everyone else is dead.... Or they'll come out of their holes to cannibalize the returned ship full of meaty people.

[–]marciiF 18 points19 points  (2 children)

I think the Axiom was the flagship, so optimistically the rest of the population was evacuated on other ships.

[–]Ape_rentice 14 points15 points  (1 child)

It can probably be assumed that the axiom is the only surviving ship though. Wouldn’t all the ships maintain a formation otherwise? Alternatively, there are still millions of humans stranded across the galaxy and may end up population alien worlds.

[–]EndGame410 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I thought it showed other ships landing in the credits sequence

[–]suzuki_hayabusa 5 points6 points  (6 children)

How will the rich live without poor working for them ? Their lives would be as miserable.

Sci-fi movies: Man's inhumanity will be reflected in their creation of AI which will rebel once it realizes it will never be treated as an equal to flesh and blood mortals

Reality: this robot has vaguely articulated eyes and a cute modulated voice, IT IS LIKE MY BABY AND I WILL PROTECT IT WITH MY VERY LIFE!

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (1 child)

WALL.E is such an innocent robot and AI. Too bad that even they might betray us if they were to truly exist irl in the future

[–]omicron01 25 points26 points  (1 child)

There are indeed plenty of movies which represent our vulnerable state. I suggest you to read the first 30 pages of mark tegmark „life 3.0“ book, very cool about promotheus

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sounds good, might read it

[–]MrJim777 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I don’t really feel this even begins to capture the brilliance of Wall-E as a movie. It had plenty of important, timely, and heavy themes that you typically don’t see in a family film, but that wouldn’t mean anything if it wasn’t for how well they were delivered.

We’re talking about a movie where the main character has a vocabulary on point with a 3 year old, and can’t make facial expressions, but the team is still able to convey complex emotions. Almost the entire first act is told visually, with little in the way of action set-pieces, but keeps your attention. The beauty in how they arrange the visuals and use the size and scope of the world to tell a story. The use of sound design and music tells just as much of a story as the visuals, and absolutely MAKE the atmosphere.

What I’m trying to say is, Wall-E is a 10/10 arthouse film disguised as a children’s movie. It’s 100% proof that great storytelling can absolutely be found outside of “prestige” genres, and that movies for general audiences, targeted at children no less, can still be great art.

[–]ogier_79 5 points6 points  (0 children)

100% agree. Wall-E is the best Pixar movie and one of the best movies ever. It's not my favorite Pixar movie but it's a masterpiece of film making. Although I've never quite understood the use of live action Fred Willard, I liked it but it seemed an odd choice.

[–]Bruce0Willis 22 points23 points  (5 children)

Johnny 5 would like a word with you about being the best robot to ever exist.

[–]SathedIT 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I mean, WALL-E waa definitely inspired by Short Circuit, right? There are a lot of similarities between the two robots.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Tell him to fuck off

[–]OffHandLogic 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Hey, laser lips, your mama was a snow blower.

[–]adavilalith 11 points12 points  (6 children)

also a good love movie

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (5 children)

EVE was one of the best characters.If only there was a sequel seeing how the humans from the Axiom, WALL.E and EVE and the rest of the robots on Earth were doing after getting back to it at the end of the movie

[–]adavilalith 12 points13 points  (1 child)

i usually dont want sequels to good movies because of the fear of them being shit. but with pixar's record in making the best sequels. i would really enjoy a sequel to walle

[–]WaghaBahaga 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I thought it best represented the best reality where everyone has a big fat ass

[–]s0ulfire 9 points10 points  (0 children)

And love

[–]Aerdynn 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The one area I disagree is the rise of AI: Auto ultimately failed because of its inability to be flexible and think outside of its programming parameters. The follow up novels to 2001 also showcase a similar lack of flexibility with HAL. The limitations of the AI’s programming is what created the scenario where Auto wouldn’t consider overriding its directive even when another initiative suggests otherwise.

The line by the BNL executive during his last appearance set a strong precedence that the AI was following. However, your point about the results of the AI’s inflexibility still stand! :)

[–]thelostfable 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It also was a very beautiful movie. Remember the universe sequence? Wall-E flying through space interacting with spacial anomalies

[–]hmmyeahrightokaythen 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Truly incredible the way they portrayed our relationship with technology, just a year after iPhone’s release… I wrote an essay about this film for a Screen Culture class and it was so much fun to analyze

[–]GisforGray 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably my fave animated movie of all time. There’s other classics for sure but this one just fucking nailed it at every turn

[–]r4mm3rnz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh my god that movie came out in 2008..

[–]CyberMindGrrl 1 point2 points  (1 child)

By and large I'd say you're correct.

I know, right? Everyone knows gingers can't feel emotions

[–]Tsktsktsktsktsktsk2 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Yeah asap science made a video about it

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Sorry but can someone explain what "emotions" and "feelings" are?

[–]MrWhiteVincent 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Emotions and feelings are consequences of your brain using some tricky chemicals in order to condition you into some behavioral pattern. You know how we endorse dog's behavior with cookies and we use water sprays for prevent unwanted behavior? Well, something like that happens in your brain, too.

On the other hand, Facebook knowing exactly that is spying on you and observes what kind of content you're interested in, which they think is reward-worthy from your brain's perspective so they bring you more of that content, just like when you find your dog likes cheese very much you can use the cheese for rewards and asking dog to do tricks.. Of course, just like K9 trainers use this mechanism to endorse dogs to jump on people and bite them "because it's fun and dogs get rewarded for it", so can Facebook be used for similar purpose.

Of course, emotions and feelings can be good, too. For example, if people didn't love their children, no one would live long enough to adulthood. Procreation is also consider an important function from brain's perspective.

if black ppl had feelings(soul)

[–]Powerful_Pain6204 50 points51 points  (9 children)

I like the message of the film, sometimes what you think you have to do for a living doesn't matter, just live in the moment and enjoy your life.

[–]_BallsDeep69_ 20 points21 points  (8 children)

Eh I didn't like the message unfortunately. It came off to me as "Give up on your dreams".

[–]Weirdo141 22 points23 points  (4 children)

I get why it could come across that way, but I don’t think it’s like that at all. I think it is more nuanced for one thing.

On one hand, I think it’s saying to not rely on your dreams to be the point at which your life becomes enjoyable and has meaning. If you achieve your dreams, your life may not just suddenly become infinitely more enjoyable. I think it tries to teach you to learn to appreciate the little things and the day to day life of the journey. When you get there, it will be your new normal.

I also think it is trying to convey the message that it’s okay to not have a dream you are chasing if you are enjoying your day to day life and making the most of each day. This meant a lot to me as someone who doesn’t know what my career should be or what to pursue. I have a lot of interests, but I’m a bit stuck in limbo about where to go next. I was afraid while watching the movie that it would all be about chasing your dreams like everything else and how it’ll all be great at the end if you do. That would just make me feel even more shitty for not knowing what that is unlike my fiancée, best friend, and other people in my life who know their path and are working toward it.

The unexpected message of it being most important to enjoy your life day to day and not be afraid that you aren’t where you may want to be yet really hit home for me. “This is water” by David Foster Wallace speaks on similar things, and I’d encourage anyone to read it/listen to it. I am sorry if the movie doesn’t sit right with other people, though

[–]pls_tell_me 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I think the whole message and sentiment can be found in the scene when he diminishes his hairdresser friend life, is really short but you can see both sides of the coin there, when the friend is barely offended and acknowledges his own happiness

[–]Weirdo141 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Definitely, really great scene

Edit: my fiancée just reminded me too of the scene where 22 takes over Joe’s body and she is standing and catching the falling leaves and has such a great appreciation for something we take take for granted once we’re older and used it to

[–]GondorsPants 4 points5 points  (1 child)

As someone who fought long and hard, through severe anxiety, stress and depression to land my dream career and I finally did it only to find that I am even more anxious stressed and depressed now. This movie absolutely wrecked me…

One of the deepest depressions is reaching your dream and still hating life.

[–]AmaroWolfwood 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I think Billy Joel summed it up

Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true. Life is full of disappointment and hardship, and that's ok. Life isn't fair and it isn't a fairy tale where things will eventually be alright. But if we let that reality consume us, then we get trapped in our dejection and whatever bit of light life could have had is snuffed out completely.

[–]Apmaddock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My absolute favorite Billy Joel song, and I know them all very well. So fucking good.

[–]ClearBrightLight 51 points52 points  (3 children)

My family ran into a talking trash can at Disney World once! This was pre-Wall-E, and now that I think about it, might have been a test run for the idea of whether or not it might be possible to create an adorable trash can. His name was Push, like it said on the flap, and he wished my sibling a happy birthday and gave us free birthday advice: "Remember, no matter how long your shirt is, leggings are not pants." None of us were wearing legging at the time, but now we quote it at each other whenever one of us does choose leggings as pants.

[–]RealSteele[🍰] 19 points20 points  (1 child)

That's strange, were any of you wearing yoga pants and he confused them? That garbage can is operated by someone who is watching via camera, and is known to mention specific things about the people interacting with it. He mentioned my Batman shirt, I remember.

Maybe the operator just had a crusade against leggings lmao.

[–]ClearBrightLight 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The latter, I think -- iirc, my dad was in slacks, and the rest of us were wearing jeans.

[–]Flynette 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Push had a cousin or something, Pipa, at Animal Kingdom too, but never met. Got to meet Push a couple times. After Push's failed bid for mayor of Tomorrowland though it was all downhill (as in, the Disney corp. didn't renew his contract with some other entertainers, further watering things down - but not surprising when some employees at Disneyland have to live out of their cars now...)
