i finally got to take alanna to see the movie "9" today. we both really wanted to see it last week on 9/9/09 when it opened, but our schedule that day just didn't allow it. better late than never. we both really liked it! it was a little scary and at times pretty intense for being a completely animated feature. the visuals were awesome. and i even cried a little. but i cry a little during almost every movie, so that isn't saying much, haha. the story was predictable, but i thought it was sad and cute, in a dark and creepy sort of way. totally my kind of movie. and the music was done by danny elfman, which is a plus. i would not recommend this for younger kids. alanna is almost 13 and has grown up around my liking of all things creepy (remember i love tim burton, who co-produced this film, and also the nightmare before christmas, etc.) so she appreciated it as much as i did. if you like those kinds of things as well, be sure to see this movie before it leaves the theaters.
(i almost forgot, the theater we went to totally sold vegan cookies too! bonus! <3)
