Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! I do not know what is in the "reflect" section mentioned

I was not necessarily expecting a movie about a lonely trash compactor to make me feel much of anything - even if it was a Pixar movie. Watching Wall-e, however, I was touched on many levels, as were a great many people among the millions who have seen the film and its important messages. I was affected by the character of Wall-e and how his simple existence was upended when he was introduced the the real concept of love and companionship. The nearly wordless opening of the film depicts his lonely day to day as the last functioning being on earth and how he longs for more than his cockroach friend can offer. When he finally gets his wish, thanks to a visiting feminine robot probe from deep space, it is clear he will never been the same as he slavishly devotes everything he has to keeping her safe and staying with her at all costs. Wall-e as a film carried a much larger message than the touchy-feely plot, however, as it also depicted the perils of pollution and more importantly - and subversively - the disastrous impact of letting corporations run amok in both environmental and governmental affairs. We are shown piecemeal evidence that the Buy N Large company all but took over all aspects of American life until there was not much of an America left, then that same company built ships to send the people into space only to infantile them with junk food, constant entertainment, and a total lack of physical activity for centuries. This adorable children's film brought with it some very heady wake up calls to which all adults watching could stand to pay attention.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
