Favorite Movies Week-“9”

I’m officially declaring this week favorite movies week, what does this mean you ask? Its simply means that everyday I have a post up (refer to blogging schedule) I’m gonna do a post each day about that movie specifically and hopefully you’ll learn something about me.

Or you won’t. Honestly, readers I can’t gaurantee you anything just sit back, read, and through dull mind numbing words please just try to enjoy the useless information.

PLOT:

“The time is the too-near future. Powered and enabled by the invention known as the Great Machine, the world’s machines have turned on mankind and sparked social unrest, decimating the human population before being largely shut down.

But as our world fell to pieces, a mission began to salvage the legacy of civilization; a group of small creations was given the spark of life by a scientist in the final days of humanity, and they continue to exist post-apocalypse. Another of their own, #9 (voiced by Elijah Wood), emerges and displays leadership qualities that may help them survive and possibly even thrive. The conflicted but resilient tribe already includes #1 (Christopher Plummer), a domineering war veteran and the group’s longtime leader; #2 (Martin Landau), a kindly but now-frail inventor; #3 and #4, scholarly twins who communicate nonverbally and mostly with each other; #5 (John C. Reilly), a stalwart and nurturing engineer; #6 (Crispin Glover), an erratic artist beset by visions; #7 (Jennifer Connelly), a brave and self-sufficient warrior; and #8 (Fred Tatasciore), the none-too-bright muscle and enforcer for #1.

With their group so few, these “stitchpunk” creations must summon individual strengths well beyond their own proportions in order to outwit and fight against still-functioning machines, one of which is a marauding mechanized beast. In the darkness just before the dawn, #9 rallies every one of his number to band together.

While showcasing a stunning “steampunk”-styled visual brilliance, 9 dynamically explores the will to live, the power of community, and how one soul can change the world.”

  1. i mean the way the ‘puppets’ look is creepy…….

    • They’re not “puppets”. They’re rag dolls, or stitch-punks as fans have called them, they’re being just living homonculi, with human souls. They’re just like you and me, well the soul part that is.

      You’d really have to watch the movie to understand.

  2. And all the characters are actually quite lovable in their own way, although some you really have to study a few times to understand them. There are a few characters who ultimately I didn’t like at first but then as I watched the film more closely I grew to love all of them, every single one.

    Oh and a fun fact of information; these rag doll or “stitchpunks” are only 6-8 inches tall.

  3. that looks creepy………………….. :|
