9

Went and saw 9 last night.  It looked really great, and it was a wonderful premise, but ultimately it was a disappointment.  If you don’t have a story and a script you ultimately don’t have anything.

I realized the movie was in trouble when the script kept sending the little rag dolls running off to various locations, and then back to those locations.  All the while the rag dolls kept ignoring THE REALLY BIG CLUE while they ran to and fro.

And once again you have a story built on people acting illogically and stupidly.  In Star Trek you had the P.O.’d Romulan chasing after Spock and destroying Vulcan rather than going home and telling folks to Move!!! because this big nova was going to happen 26 years in the future.

In 9 the creator of the rag dolls leaves a movie for his last rag doll, but he never leaves him the crucial piece of information.  “This doohickey you found with the weird symbols on it — if you find a big machine with a slot that matches the shape of the doohickey — _don’t put the doohickey in the slot!!!!_  And by the way, the reason I created you… well, I’m not actually sure why I created you or what you are supposed to do, but it’s important and spiritual and shit.  I’m sure you’ll work it out.”

This has a wonderful look, but don’t expect the story to make any damn sense.
