District 9-

I only have good things to say about this film
--Please, do yourself a favour and see it.


  1. I saw it Saturday night of opening weekend, then immediately went back Sunday morning for a second view. I have enjoyed it more than any science fiction film I've seen this decade.

  2. Yeah,
    --I really cannot find much if anything that I even snarked at, even if one sees certain plot elements leading to conclusions. For each telegraphed element, there is a twist or some other bit that just overrode any cynicism I began to manifest.

    I cried, I cheered, I 'hmm'd with surprise and appreciation.

    And the combat scenes were finally worthy of 21st century film-making technology.

    'Brilliant' isn't too strong a word to use, I think.

  3. I still have yet to see it. Everytime I want to go something comes up. And my movie place is 2 minutes away. I think I went to more movies when I had to drive 40 minutes.

  4. It was amazingly un-Hollywood, even though it hit every single Hollywood cliche. We really enjoyed it.

  5. That was a hard film to watch. As a man, I only think its okay to cry if your dog dies or your wife leaves you. Having said that, I got choked up a few times. Brilliant movie.
