This is a good Tim Burton movie that takes place in a post apocalyptic world, which looks to be some where around the mid 1930’s and 40’s. It speaks to mans dependency on technology and how that will be our down fall but my money is still on time traveling dinosaurs. Though it’s a cartoon it still has an extremely cryptic feel to it with people getting gunned down by machines in the street and the wise old man who gives his life to these dolls so that they may live on and some how preserve mankind.
This is more of an adult cartoon, I showed this to my niece at Christmas and she freaked out. While this movie continues to get darker and darker it still manages to keep you hopeful and upbeat in a way that only Tim Burton can.
Freaking Robots, can’t trust em
