9- a film by tim burton

9- The new movie from Tim Burton.

To sum up the movie: A character 9 (Elijah Wood), a rag doll is left with few others in a ravaged, nightmare world.


  • It' got Elijah Wood, (Lord of the Rings, Everything is Illuminated); can't go wrong with him.

  • It was adapted from an academy award winning short with the same name.

  • It's made with Burton style, halloween-like nightmare animation.


  • No claymation. Bye stop-motion! I loved you so. With today's technology we can say goodbye to it.

  • Not the traditional Burton style-however. It has no skinny-legged skeletons with music blasting party monsters. :(

  • We can't expect the usual Burton-cast: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, that one old guy that sounds like Morgan Freeman, etc...

  • Change-is-a' coming. We will no longer have the old Timmy as we used to. Plots have been taken and technology has kicked in. As Jack Johnson once said, "Where all da good people go?"
