Wall-E
2008
****½
Director: Andrew Stanton
Cast: Ben Burtt, Elissa Knight, Jeff Garlin, Fred Willard, John Ratzenberger

The Pixar Studios continuosly push the envelope as far as technology and storytelling are concerned, but this is by far their boldest animation yet. The stunning and practically dialogue-free first half introduces us to Wall-E, a waste disposal robot who is a lonely presence on abandoned planet Earth. In the second half our hero ends up on board a space ship where the remains of humanity reside, and the quality drops a bit.
