District 9

This is an amazing film.  It combines the feel of a documentary with the crazy events as they occur.  It is one of the best science fiction films I’ve seen.  The situation the aliens find themselves in is quite believable as is the reaction of the surrounding populace.  The locale is in South Africa.  The director gets some fine acting from his cast.  Yes, it does leave itself open to a sequel.  This ending was, apparently, realized towards the end of shooting.  As one critic noted, “Bring on District 10!”  If you haven’t seen the film, I strongly urge you to do so.

    I like Sci Fi. Since we have two small children, one of them is autistic, it’s hard for my wife and me to go to the theater.

    When will it be out on DVD?

    As the film is doing very well in the cinemas, it may be a while.

    It maybe “R” rated for violence & language.

    Trying to use this as a way of attacking Apartheid is vastly oversimplifying the fact that a group of refugees have always been shunted off to the side and taken advantage of. It is a timeless statement.
