I’m a Wall-E apologist.

It doesn’t hurt that it was my kids’ favorite movie for a while, and one of them pronounced it “Wobby”…but still.

Beneath the bombastic, surface-level messaging is a subtlety that undermines where the typical progressive wants to take that messaging. Even the end credits sequence plays into this undercurrent. Every time I watch it, I notice something new, and I appreciate its genius more.

I won’t litigate it here, but it is worth a discussion.

Agree with your Luca take. I appreciated the simplicity of the story and friendship that went against the grain of the cultural gaystapo.

Just don’t think about the rules of the world too hard.

Strong agree. The first time I watched Wall-E, I was fully prepared to loathe the ending I thought was coming. The actual ending blew me away.
