Wall-E (Geograf-E)

Went to see Wall-E today...
Great film !

A lot of geography in there, and also comment on a dystopian future where humanity has abandoned the planet, and now lives in space on a vessel called the Axiom.

Plenty on the power of multinationals: particularly the BUY 'N' LARGE corporation which provides the environment for humanity's refuge, while Wall-E's clean up the planet. The film also ends with a brilliant Peter Gabriel track.

If you go to the BUY N LARGE site, you are taken to the WALL-E site, but before the film opened, there was a detailed site.

Will try to develop some more ideas soon.
