Wall-E (2008) Review + 700 hundred Years Later


Many bloggers said that my previous post about Eason is super long. If you notice it, I did mention that there are 2 sharing posts from others website loh. Maybe the "" word is not obvious?

Today don't have class, but I have spent my morning in watching Wall-E. Have you watched it before? It's an old movie in 2008. I watched it because one of the Eason's song.

As mentioned in the previous post, this song "七百年后 700 hundred years later" has aroused our emotional response and quite touching, but after watching this Wall-E video, I agree that this MV is more suits the song as compared to the original MV interpreted by Eason. The original MV is too sad, it's about the girl when she was diagnosed with cancer and Eason accompanied her until the end of life.



WALL-E Story's Plot
(You can ignore this part if it is too long.)
WALL-E movie (Waste Allocation Load Lifter - Earth) is to raise public awareness about environmental protection and Live Green. The story follows a robot named WALL-E, who is designed to clean up the waste in Earth. He falls in love with another robot named EVE (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator), who is designed to locate vegetation on Earth and verify habitability. Both robots show an appearance of free will and emotions similar to humans.

In 2805, Earth is covered in garbage due to decades of mass consumerism facilitated by megacorporation Buy 'n' Large (BnL). In 2105, BnL produces a lot of WALL-E trash compactor robots to clean the planet. However, most WALL-E robots can't adapt to the environment and shut down, except for one which develops sentience after 700 years of life-experience. He manages to remain active by repairing himself using parts from other units. Apart from his regular duties, he also collects artifacts of human civilization and keeps them in his home. But he feels lonely most of the time and hope someone can accompany him.

One day WALL-E discovers a growing seedling. Later, a spaceship lands and deploys EVE, an advanced robot sent from the BnL Axiom to search for vegetation on Earth. WALL-E falls in love with the initially cold EVE, who gradually softens and befriends him. When Eve sees the plant, automatically she stores it inside herself, and goes into standby mode waiting for her ship to retrieve her. WALL-E doesn't understand why EVE seems to have shut down, he tries different ways to reactivate her but fails. When EVE's ship returns and collects her, WALL-E clings to the ship and thus travels through space to the Axiom.

On the Axiom, the ship's passengers have become obese after centuries of relying on the ship's automated systems for their every need. Even the ship's 6th captain, McCrea leaves most of the ship's operations under the control of its robotic autopilot.

With the plant brought to the captain, EVE's recordings of Earth concludes that mankind must return to restore their ruined home. This leads to the captain's idea of going back home. However, the autopilot stops them from navigating the ship and severely damaging WALL-E, when he tries to protect the plant.

Finally the obese captain can stand up and switched off the autopilot. After the spaceship reaches the Earth, EVE immediately brings WALL-E back to his home where she repairs and reactivates him. After the repair, WALL-E no longer recognizes EVE, which reverting to his original programming as an emotionless waste compactor. EVE gives WALL-E a farewell kiss which jolts WALL-E's memory and his personality returns. WALL-E and EVE happily reunite as the humans and robots of the Axiom begin to restore Earth and its environment.

Without a green plant in the world can be very severe and suffering. Thus, it is important to conserve our forests and replanting.
Save the planet, Save the environment.
Perhaps save the environment is one of the reasons in designing a lot of online games related to planting, such as FarmVille, HarvestMoon, Hay Day, and etc? So they instill such thoughts in our mind? =)

No need to wait for 700 years, now the pollution already makes us feel unpleasant. There's still haze recently, when can we get the fresh air? :(

I heard my mother saying that 4th Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir has set the time zone when he was still PM, but not sure whether he sets 1 hour or 2 hours GMT earlier? In fact, this decision was not good for our health in the long term, because the plants release oxygen in the morning only when the sun rises up. Plants absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) and give off oxygen which we and other creatures need to survive. I watched the children and adults in the Hong Kong drama wake up only when the sun rises. But in our country, we need to wake up and go out before the sun rises up, and the sky is still dark even it's already 7 a.m. The sun rises only when we start the class or working, we release CO2 and absorb CO2 simultaneously every morning, how can we survive leh?

  2. yeah, we may only do a little to help the environment, but then we still need to do our part.. if everyone is doing their part, then it would be a great help to preserve our environment, agree??

    and about the time zone thing, i don't know who set that for Malaysia, but i do know the peninsula and sabah sarawak spans across a 1-hour timezone, so our time is set to that of the Borneo, else our time will be the same as Bangkok..
