9 Movie
« on: August 05, 2009, 02:56:44 pm »
So, I saw this trailer while watching Caroline today. xD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnoJecu9e7c I immediately recognized the song, and was surprised they used it. Looks pretty good, although I kept thinking of Demyx while it. [/brick'd]

I so can't wait for that movie. It will be so amazingly epic. And I don't know anything abotu what a demyx is, but I thought the song fit perfectly in the trailer. It was Coheed & Cambria, right?

heh, yeah. I heard the song in the trailer before I knew it was by them. I never would have pictured them doing it, because it is so epic and I kind of always associated them with emo scream/rock.

But really, I am super stoked for this movie. The graphics look amazing, the cast alone is awesome overload (Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly!), post-apocalyptic ragdoll Stitchpunk?! If you can find something not to like about that, I may not want to know you, lol.  ;D

I must see this! I saw the previews for it when I watched Harry Potter, and was all, "YES! Another Tim Burton film!"

They had pretty cool little hole in the wall booth at Comic-con. they handed out these collectible  post cards (I got 8 of 9) you could take to an "altered reality" web cam to see what popped up on the back.

It was a great way to keep up with modern technology. I'm excited about this film.

As with a lot of things lately, they have already announces a couple figures/toys for the film that they plan to release soon. Of course, I totally want them. The two they announced so far as 1 and 9, I think. Look absolutely amazing: http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/32915/neca-unveils-first-two-figures-its-9-line

Without doubt they will make a 9 game eventually. Haven't heard anything yet but I'm sure they will.

Yeah, I was oddly disappointed by this movie after seeing it last night. I thought it was way too slow getting to the "meat" of the film, so to speak. It just took way too long to make me feel like it had a point to make, you know?

The whole movie just felt kind of tamed to me, kind of really tamed and bland. I was surprised, 'cause I was sure it would have rocked my socks off, but...alas.

i saw it today, and all of the good parts may have been in the trailer, but it still wasn't bad.

i liked it because it contained a lot of hidden messages.
i liked how in the beginning, around the time the machine was activated, the machine was kind of portrayed as a god figure in the sense that it created things in its image, which destroyed the world around them.

later in the movie it seemed like the creator resembled god, the machine resembled humans, and everything else resembled earth, in the sense that the machine was destroying the earth, by creating things in its image(children) and the generations of which were more and more destructive.
the creator created the machine(humans), and he created the dolls (earth).
i wonder if it is supposed to mean that the earth will fight back <.<

it contained a lot of symbolism, which i enjoyed, and i really liked the animation.
it really confused me when they let go of the souls of the other dolls though because i thought they were going to bring them back to life..

Who was everyones favorite doll? i like 2

Yeeah, I'd say let's refrain from any specifics about the movie or plot just yet. The movie has only been out a couple days. Vague critiques are fine because they don't give anything away, but try to refrain from synopses.

Maybe just grow up a bit, man. All I was asking is for people not to give anything away, not to post any spoilers, and you do exactly that. You know what you did, so I am just asking you again, to edit that post and take all that information about the movie out. Don't spoil the movie! It's that simple.

somebody quoted it. even if i edited the post, the information would not be gone.

i don't know about you, but for me, spoilers make me want to see it more, so i know wtf they are talking about.
anyone who doesn't know the basic storyline of the movie won't understand the spoilers anyway. GG

I'm just asking you to change your post. You know, do something different and act mature. ^_^

Moving on, even though I was slightly disappointed by the movie, I thought it was visually well-done. I thought it an interesting mark of the progress made since Burton's beginning with Vincent and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Still in the style of stop-motion, but the clay has been replaced by pure CG. Some real evolution there. Pretty cool.

he did nothing else in that movie.

Not that it matters, but I don't know where you got that from, because the entire story of TNBC was written by Tim Burton. Everyone knows that. Why else would TNBC be consistently called "Burton's Classic", and the like.

He is the one who conceived the film, all the characters, and the bulk of the movie in the first place. Yes, he didn't direct it, but it takes more than a director to make a movie.

sorry, i forgot that he did actually write the movie, but the character design, and animation was done by henry selick.

the fact that burton did any work in the actual movie is a common misconception.

True, pretty interesting. I guess people love him for the creation, more than his actual hands-on involvement in the physical aspects of the film. I know that's why I like him. The movie may have been crafted by someone else, but it was his brainchild, and it's the spirit of the film that I love.

I also liked how 8 bore a fun resemblance to Oogie Boogie.  :)

i loved the movie ^.^ i thought the concept was really interesting, and i love post-apocalyptic things, plus, the dolls looked awesome. my favorite was 6, i just wanted to see more of him ^.^ in fact, i just wanted more of the movie... it felt short... i think it could have used a little more time for character development. one of the people that went with us to see it said it should have been a mini-series so it would have time to develop characters and give more time for the story, and i think that would have been a great way to go also. but that aside, the movie was great ^.^

it would have been a cool mini series, but i think that it was supposed to be more "in real time".

Tim Burton is widely admired as one of the greatest twisted freaks of modern America.  I've never really heard anyone attribute him with any other major accomplishments.

Yes but not everyone is like you.  Lots of people despise spoilers and want to go into something with a clean slate.

I saw 9 on 9/9/09.  Overall I liked it.  Visually it was stunning, loved the designs for everything.  Script-wise I'm happy with the dialogue as nothing felt tacked on.
My only complaints were that some scene changes were a little choppy (whoa, wait, how'd they get there?) and sometimes the movie relied too much on loud sounds to shock the audience.

I loved ittt!

And I just found this thread, lololol.  :D I saw the movie with my mom, and it was a bit more violent then usually I'm used to~

What I LOVED, and my mom didn't, is how towards the beginning they showed the mother and child dead in the car. (I sound bad for saying that, haha) But like, animated movies in theaters finally stepped beyond the 'just show the earth is destroyed by buildings collapsing, not humans dead' thing.

Also, I cried at the end, haha.

My personal favorites were 4. (those were the twins, right?)

No wonder! I thought they were only one number, but that made me so confused as to who was 3. Thanks. :D

lolspoiler?

I also was a bit bothered by how none of the original nine were killed before 9 awoke. I mean, I loved all of them, but the realistic odds are that at least one of them would be destroyed by that point in time.

YES. I also thought more then 9 were made. It seemed like they were crawling everywhere.
