9 (Shane Acker) - 2009

This very dark movie starts after mankind has been destroyed by its machines.  The creator of the huge war machines also built nine cute little machines so they could exist in the world without organic life for some reason.  There is no explanation of what powers these robots or how long that power might last.  The movie is one continuous battle between the big and little machines interrupted briefly by a Judy Garland (1922-1969) song.  Wall-E was better.
