- District 9
Strewth – I thought it was gash as well.
Done a million times before as a story, and the special effects were rubbish.
I keep seeing crap films on planes. District 9 was one as was Surrogate(?) – a stupid Bruce Willis thing where he had some kind of robot running around for him while he vegged at home.
But District 9 was worse.Posted 8 years ago
What was ace about it?
An annoyingly badly acted South African tries to relocate some annoying cat food eating aliens.
The man gets infected by special alien juice and starts turning into one.
He finds a respect for said aliens.
Said stupid aliens then screw him over by escaping (just one of them like) onto their stupid ship, that no-one ever explains why it didn't fly away in the first place.
Said selfish alien then bogs off, leaving human:alien mutant and all other aliens to rot in South Africa.

Yeah, I thought it was quite good too. Quite different to most of the stuff coming out of hollywood. I'd liked the style of it.
Again, reading this thread, I feel that people who take films too seriously should reconsider what movies are for. It's not a thesis. It's fun, like cycling.Posted 8 years agoCountZeroMember
Agree with i_am_JC, some people seem to have incredibly high standards; if they think District 9, done on a low budget, was crap, then what constitutes a good film, in their opinion? I really enjoyed it, but I go to the cinema to be entertained, not to be lectured or come out miserable and depressed. If I wanted that, I'd stay in and watch East-bloody-Enders!Posted 8 years ago
