I wasn't prepared for how moving this wonderful movie would be. The early scenes showing Wall-E painfully alone and longing for love are absolutely heartbreaking. Love does come, in the form of a robot named Eve, but she takes a little convincing, which is adorable, and she eventually saves Wall-E's life.
There's lots of fun and high-speed action aboard a huge spaceship and some guilty insights into the future of mankind (fat, lazy slobs catered to by robots). With humour, romance, thrills, and above all, a loveable trash-compactor named Wall-E, this is a movie all ages can enjoy. (Bring your tissues!)
So I finally decided to treat myself to this movie (because lets face it, Disney movies are expensive), only to be severely disappointed with the packaging.
The DVD case is paper, and the insert that you are meant to slide the DVD out of is also paper. Both with moderately obnoxious inside folds to them, which catch on one another as you attempt to pull the DVD out. This also means that the DVD itself is pressed up against a paper surface while in storage, instead of on plastic tabs like a normal DVD case, to keep the disc from scratching. Also, the image and text printing on the DVD itself is blurry and honestly looks like something printed off your average computer printer, rather then something professionally done. Disney, I expected a lot better.
Useless and frustrating packaging.
It is true that this movie has an environmental message, but it is one of simplicity and hope rather than one that is dire and apocalyptic: the earth is ours, our home, and nothing can replace it. We need to take care of it.
In a time period when even kids' movies try to appeal to audiences with a certain jaded cynicism, this movie is honest and fresh, with a wonderfully appealing main character who ties the whole film together. I'll see this movie again, more than once. Maybe the kids will join me, maybe not. :)

The main Bluray disc consists of the movie and two animated shorts, one 5 min. long, the other 8 min. long. The main audio is an English 5.1 DTS-HD track plus there are Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks in French and Spanish. It's not the best surround track I've ever heard, but it does the job! There are also two extra commentary tracks including one they call the Geek track.
There is also a second Bluray disc full of extras including arcade games, CG fly throughs of the Axiom, deleted scenes and various robotic profiles. Plus a third standard DVD which has the movie, two shorts and a couple of extras. The DVD audio tracks are in Dolby Digital 5.1 English and French. Being from 2008, there does not appear to be any digital copy.
For the extra five bucks, the BD combo pack is the way to go. You get an entire 2nd BD disc of extras plus with it's slipcover, a much classier looking release to place on your shelves that will perfectly match with Disney's other newer combo collections. Unlike the DVD collection which is in a weird all cardboard package which may eventually scratch the DVD's and doesn't match with any standard DVD cases. Disney must have gotten a lot of complaints about it as they never used it again on any other DVD releases. So do yourself a favour and go for the combo collection for the pitiful little extra money even if you don't currently have a bluray player. You'll be thankful in the long run.
