6 DEFINITIONS, 7 LOGICS, 8 EIGHTS, A COUPLE OF NINES AND MORE THAN 10 CARTOONS (AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE)



6 DEFINITIONS

{1} Once all villagers decided to pray for rain, on the day of prayer all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella.
That's FAITH

{2} When you throw a baby in the air, she laughs because she knows you will catch her.
That's TRUST

{3} Every night we go to bed, without any assurance of being alive the next morning but still we set the alarms to wake up.
That's HOPE

{4} We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future.
That's CONFIDENCE

{5} We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children.
That's LOVE

{6} On an old man's shirt was written a sentence 'I am not 91 years old ... I am sweet 16 with 75 years’ experience.
That's ATTITUDE












"9" by Tim Burton
Release date: 09/09/09


When 9 first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world where all humans are gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction. Despite being the neophyte of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good. They must take the offensive if they are to survive, and they must discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. As they'll soon come to learn, the very future of civilization may depend on them.


"Nine"
The musical
Review by Rotten Tomatoes



"Nine" is a vibrant and provocative musical that follows the life of world famous film director Guido Contini as he reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife, his mistress, his film star muse, his confidant and costume designer, an American fashion journalist, the whore from his youth and his mother.

It received 38% on the Tomato Meter.
Some reviews:

Nine should have been called 4 1/2 because it doesn't come close to the work of the master who inspired it.

The film suffers from the simple fact that its songs aren't memorable.

It's a movie about a musical about a movie about a man's inner life -- surely we can eliminate some of the middle men.

Where Fellini dared us to race alongside his imagination, Marshall is thuddingly cautious.

There's a lot of high-powered star wattage in Nine, but it never generates much heat.
