Movie of the Week: WALL-E

Pixar are back at the box office: after fishes and cars it is time for robots now. The hero of their latest movie WALL-E is a box shaped robot which looks like a cute miniature version of Number 5.

The movie is refreshingly different from other animated films. It features neither funny talking animals nor living objects with human faces. There is even hardly any dialogue in the first 30 minutes. Instead it delivers a serious message wrapped in a lot of humour. And it manages to do that without benig lecturing.

WALL-E is good entertainment which provides food for thought.
