Wall.E is a feel good movie that will get you thinking afterwards. More than the special friendship between Wall.E and Eve, the movie speaks of many social and environmental issues. This movie shows how man can be enslaved by their own creations. Humans were pictured as very lazy people, dependent on technology to survive, they weren’t even living life. They do not touch, they do not talk face to face, and they just communicate through the hologram screens in their floating chairs. They were helpless without technology. Time came when the captain of the ship realized that they need to give back to their home: Earth. Earth is not as miserable as man thought it was, it just needed people to look after it. He drew hope from a plant potted on a shoe. He had two choices, to remain surviving comfortably in the Axiom, or to lead his people to go home to Earth. The captain chose to do better. He did not want to remain useless, he wanted to live.
