Pixar can almost do no wrong.
This movie is just fantastic. One of the best movies I've ever seen. That little robot is so cute and the movie is so touching. And it's really profound too, taking a very critical look at our current way of doing things - mass consumerism, lack of care for the planet, over-dependence on our tools and the confidence of endless resources (a faulty confidence).
1. Beautiful animation
2. Perfect storytelling
3. Wonderful music
There's hardly any dialogue the whole first half or more of the movie, and yet it works. That is how you tell a story.
I loved this movie.
+1 to everything you said. I heart that movie.
