    9

    Wall-E it is not.

    "Sometimes fear is the appropriate response." 1 (voice of Christopher Plummer)


    Fearsome is the post-apocalyptic world to which the titular character of the animation 9 (voice of Elijah Wood) wakes up. Although only one of a few creations of a scientist who also fashioned the destructive machine that has reduced the planet to rubble, 9 leads his cohorts on an aggressive mission to save the planet.

    Departures

    A different kind of travel film.

    "Because I could not stop for Death, He kindly stopped for me . . ." Emily Dickinson.


    Departures is the best encoffineer film I have ever seen. But then this is the only one I've ever seen. Although it is the best international film I have seen this year, it doesn't count because it won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film of last year, 2008.

    Extract

    Mild, Weak

    "OK, so I'm a bit of a character." Dean (Ben Affleck)


    Just mention King of the Hill, Beavis and Butthead, or Office Space from creator Mike Judge and you'll get reactions of awe for his "characters"-- their iconoclastic, offbeat humor. The setup of Extract is eccentric enough to fit those social comedies: an artificial flavoring factory filled with oddball assembly-line workers and an accident where one of them loses a testicle.
