Wall-E Is The Perfect Geeky Valentine Movie

Oscar Worthy Gadgets: Wall-E's Junkyard Vintage Geek Finds

It's only fitting that I'm reviewing Wall-E's Oscar worthy gadgets during the week before Valentine's Day, since enduring love is one of the film's main themes. And naturally, Wall-E was one of my top rated movies of last year, since a few of his costars are some of my favorite things: gadgets and robots. Nominated for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Screenplay at this year's Oscars, Wall-E takes animation to new heights, and keeps the geeks happy at the same time.

From Bic lighters to light bulbs and VHS tapes, Wall-E finds tons of items on the toxic wasteland called Earth that are unknown to him, but are totally low-tech to us now. The song and dance routine he learns from his VHS and tube TV give him endless hours of fun, while his collection of calculators and kitchen whisks keep him entertained after his long, trash collecting days alone. Although Wall-E eventually ends up on a futuristic space ship (hello sci-fi!), and finds himself among gobs of new robots and humans that are living lives driven by computers, all he wants to do is find Eve and make a home with her back on Earth. Aww, my heart.

It reminded me of the Little Mermaid, saving things like forks and gears.

Loved this movie probably as much as my kids. I should point out that he wasn't actually using a tube tv to watch his movies though. He had an iPod style device playing back the video and he positioned a fresnel lens over it to make it appear larger. Not wanting to pull a "Well, actually" but I thought this little detail was overlooked by most but something I thought was very creative.
