anarresti's rating of the film WALL•E

The Matrix trilogy was inspired by the japanese anime fascination with apocalyptic, dramatic battles between men and their out of control robotic AI creations. In 2008 we got this tender love story between two machines. Up to a point we do believe there are no humans left. And WALL-E has an absolute loyalty to its purpose, like a puppy. So, machines are not the enemy anymore, they're the salvation of our humanity.
