WALL-E

a good, well animated, 2008, Pixar movie, about a robot, WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter – Earth (class) ), & his robot love interest, EVE (Extra-terrestrial Vegetation Evaluator), as they join forces to literally & figuratively bring humanity back to Earth, I went to a midnight showing of it on the day it premiered here in the U.S.A., a few months ago, June 27, 2008
