Wall-E

Factual error: As a trash compactor Wall-E does not function logically. When he fills his chest compartment with garbage and runs his internal compactor, the cube that exits his body is the same volume as the trash he puts in, despite that trash having been compacted. He does not add extra trash to fill the empty space after running the compactor - there are three scenes that show him filling up only once with loose garbage and then ejecting a densely compacted cube.

Suggested correction: You haven't noticed the exact shape of his body. The back sticks out a tad. Garbage fills the space and the back pushes in to compress it.

You've missed the point of the mistake here. The cube that is ejected is the same size as the compartment. Wall-E puts loose fitting items into the compactor with gaps between items but once it's been crushed and compacted it's exactly the same size as before. It should be smaller.

Factual error: When AUTO tilts the Axiom during the argument with the captain, which later results in WALL-E being crushed and everyone sliding to one side, should not be possible. In space, there is no gravity, and on the Axiom there is artificial gravity, meaning everything is pulled inward, so if the ship turns, they shouldn't notice and nothing should change.

Factual error: The Rubiks cube that Wall-e pulls out of his cooler is not accurate for a real cube. That cube has white and yellow on the same piece which is impossible for a real cube. Then after Eve solves it, white and yellow are on opposite sides as they should be.

Continuity mistake: When EVE leaves the line-up and is followed by Wall-E, he does not leave a dirt path, though before and after this scene he does. (00:37:20)

Trivia: EVE's iPod-like design can be attributed to the fact that she was designed by the same man who designed the iPod, Johnny Ive.

Question: When Wall-E and Eve are in the repair ward, and Wall-E is misinterpreting Eve's cleaning as torture, what is the second "scene" supposed to be? I understand that the first one looks like Eve is having her arm ripped off and the third looks like Eve is having her head chopped off, but I can't figure out what the second one with the malfunctioning umbrella is supposed to be.

Answer: It's a combination of what WALL-E sees happening to EVE, with her circuitry lighting up and her head bobbing up and down as she laughs, with the noise of the umbrella as the diagnostic arms try to force it down. All WALL-E can hear is something that resembles a mechanical screech, along with EVE reacting - he thinks that she's being electrocuted and is in pain.
