Tim Burton's Vintage Post-apocalyptic Nine (2009) Explores Morality of Technology

Movie director Tim Burton (“Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride) is a man who will go down in history as one of the best animated and stop motion directors. With the making of the dark animated movie Nine, Burton really outshone himself. While Nine was released in 2009, Tim Burton fans will always look for the best of his vintage works, and even if you don't know Burton, it is worth watching because the movie puts across a moral anyone could understand.

            Nine is an animated, post-apocalyptic movie about a scientist who created an artificial intelligence machine without a soul. The machine, called Progress, was made for a German dictator in 1930 so he could destroy his enemies, but instead the machine eradicated all human life.

            Before dying, the scientist that made Progress built nine ragdoll creatures called Stitchpunks. The scientist split his soul into nine parts and inserted the pieces into the Stitchpunks.

Famous actor Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings, and The Last Witch Hunter), plays the ninth Stitchpunk who must find the other eight creatures and use their help to destroy Progress.

Nine is a movie everyone should watch because of the moral it shares. The film puts into perspective that because everyone is so excited for the next piece of technology, they never realize what could go wrong.

Opening weekend landed Nine at #2 behind I Can Do Bad All By Myself, with earnings of approximately $10,740,446. The film has made a total of $48,428,063 worldwide.

Nine has gained popularity since its 2009 release, and due to the continuous support for the famed director Burton, popularity grows exponentially.
