9

25/04/2009

I am completely obsessed with 9. Yea, yea, it hasn’t been released yet, but it just amazes the hell outta me.

9 takes place in a world parallel to our own, in which the very legacy of humanity is threatened. A group of sapient rag dolls, living a post-apocalyptic existence find one of their own, 9 (Elijah Wood), who displays leadership qualities that may help them to survive.

It is an upcoming feature-length adaptation, directed by Shane Acker, who directed the short film of the same name in 2005 (view it here), and is produced by Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov.

I’m not a huge Tim Burton fan (sorry, boys and girls), but I am of Bekmambetov’s (try Night Watch and Day Watch).

Here’s a clip from the upcoming film:

Ah, I feel so lethargic. Well, not really lethargic, but you get the idea. It’s summer, it’s so humid because it’s raining (in summer?), and I’ve been running out of ideas. That’s why I’m starting to watch online movies (and I have a looooong list of must-see films). I haven’t watched half of what’s in the list, and I think I’ve already watched everything. It’s just so boring to look at how slow it loads (and I want to see a movie without any interruptions).

Right now, I’m watching Jackass Number 2 (yes, I like the show and the movies very much). They make my cheeks hurt and run out of breath. And I watched Fight Club (again) and Almost Famous (again) because they are just so fucking awesome. Two of my favorite films.

Almost Famous

Fight Club

YES, I’m boring and uncool. And this is my happy place.
