A subtle homage to Carl Sagan and the pale blue dot? Eva, the ova shaped robot, holding the seed of life and entering a vagina shaped compartment? This pixar take on the "Idiocracy" premise is full of heart, humor, intelligence, amazing imagery, character, and nods to several sci-fi movie classics. Wall-E almost bests Pixar's best film, "Toy Story." So close it doesn't even matter.
I award Wall-E 5 Pope hats.
