Bit behind the times but just watched this. I thought it was fantastic! Couldn't quite put my finger on what it was reminding me of till I saw peter Jackson in the credits. Back to sick "bad taste" humour whilst also being compelling actiony stuff too.
For some reason I kept expected the two flight of the Concorde people to pop up and start singing too…..Posted 8 years ago0303062650Member
hmm… I had a demo of some bits of the film at a high-end home cinema last year and was blown away by it, watched it again and it felt a little anticlimatic, however, I quite enjoyed it… I thought the alien's voice/speach was excellent, the ship rising up was excellent… just a shame I don't have £15k projector!Posted 8 years agoAlekMember
When I rented this out, I had avoided all 'hype' and was watching it completely 'cold'. No idea on how the film was shot/actos/story line….nowt.
First half of the film and I'm thinking this could be a turkey!
But way before half way things started to 'come together' and was absolutely hooked by the end. Accents were the making of it (and the prawns 🙂 ) well worth another watch.Posted 8 years agoel_boufadorSubscriber
Brilliant film! Along with 'let the right one in' it's easily one of the best new films I have seen in the past few years.
I'm not normally a sci-fi fan – I find it hard to suspend my disbelief. However there's something compellingly believable about district 9 – I think I know what it is but I'm not going to say as it may spoil it.Posted 8 years agoWhatWouldJesusRideMember
Thought District 9 was a welcome return to 'proper' SciFi. The antithesis of the usual Hollywood overproduced underdeveloped slop.
You lot should download Alive in Joburg.
It's an open source movie short that District 9 grew from. Thought it was very good.
I might end up using 'prawn' as my insult of choice. Or maybe not…Posted 8 years agosofakingMember
great film.Posted 8 years ago
looks like the director fancies a prequel rather than a sequel
i agree, awesome film. Took my girlfriend to see it in the cinema as didnt really know anything about it. She hated it and curled up and went to sleep during it. I loved it. When it came out on DVD i bought it, watched it once then she gave it away to her brother-in-law saying 'i'm not having that in the house it scares me!'Posted 8 years agosputnikMember
I also saw D9 only a couple of weeks ago. Loved it. Well made movie. Good blend of realism and special effects. Liked the Wikus character, a anti-hero of sorts, and the accents made me feel like I was back home again. Was a hoot to hear 'Fok!' said right 🙂Posted 8 years ago
Not to sure if I am in favour of a sequel…
