Wall-E (2008)

In Pixar's and Disney's animated science-fiction love story:

  • the wordless scenes of the title character WALL·E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class) (voice of Ben Burtt) - the last lone garbage-compacting robot on Earth, eccentrically collecting various treasures (plastic forks, light bulbs, Rubik's Cubes, Zippo lighters, etc.) and neatly stashing them in his protective truck shelter
  • and after the arrival of EVE (short for Extra-terrestrial Vegetation Evaluator) (voice of Elissa Knight), a sleek, white-shelled probe droid-robot, the scene of their introducing themselves by name
  • the scene of showing her his collection of treasured trinkets - including a hand-mixer and popping bubble-wrap, and constructing a replica of himself out of trash as a present to her
  • his repeated watching of a VCR recording of Helly, Dolly! (1969) including the romantically-inspiring songs: "It Only Takes a Moment," and "Put on Your Sunday Clothes"
  • the sight of humans on the planet AXIOM - all Bob's Big-Boy style corpulent fatsos reclining on floating, robotic lounge chairs while electronic robots served their every need - on the 700th year anniversary of their 5-year cruise
  • the repeated scenes of robot M-O ("Moe") cleaning up the "foreign contaminant" of WALL-E's tread-tracks
  • the space dance sequence between WALL-E and EVE after she kissed him
  • the great reawakening scene of the Captain (voice of Jeff Garlin) standing up (to a "Thus Spake Zarathustra" theme song) as he shut off the one-eyed, AUTO-pilot, HAL-like robot (voice of MacinTalk)
  • the final scene when a crushed and 'dead' WALL-E (rebuilt by EVE who used his own spare parts collection to reconstruct him) appeared to have lost his acquired sentience and memories but then remembered who EVE was after they clapsed 'hands' and she 'kissed' his forehead, and they then enjoyed a longer second kiss
