    Wonderful movie. I was enthralled. The premise is frighteningly realistic. The acting was top notch, and the effects were mind-bogglingly good.

    I have to agree. This movie was amazing! And it pulled in $37 mil over the weekend! that's $7 mil more than the budget! But yeah, I haven't seen a movie in a long time where I actually care about the characters and what happens to them.

    I didn't get a chance to see it until tonight. Great movie! It borrowed from quite a bit of movies that have come before like The Fly, the Alien series, Iron Man, and this year's Terminator: Salvation.

    District 9 was a very good movie. It's this summer surprise hit. The storyline was much better than Transformers and G.I. Joe. District 9 was kind of slow in the beginning, but it got better as the story continue. Anybody that likes Sci-Fi should check this movie out.

    After seeing the movie, I had this strange urge to go out for some seafood...

    Re: District 9 - Discussion Thread

    Saw it last night. Truly and amazing film. After seeing what they could do with 30 million dollars, I don't think any of these big budget directors have any right to be asking for more than that.

    Extremely well done. I know it was rated R but I took my 12 year old brother to it and he loved it as well.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    Re: District 9 - Discussion Thread

    Finally saw it yesterday. I like it for the most part. There were several scenes I couldn't watch b/c of the realistic gore (wrong word choice but you know). I also really hated the main character and it make it hard for me to say I enjoyed a movie where I didn't like the main protagonist...

    I did like it though and it was well done.

    Saw this a few hours ago with friends. We all loved it. Very intense, really pulled you in, very well written. Worried about the gore that everyone talked about, but ended up finding it the right amount of gore for the story. As for best summer movie, I think different people definitely have different definitions for that title. This wouldn't be my favorite summer movie this year, but it's in my top five with Star Trek, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, (500) Days of Summer and Up.

    I thought it was very good. The one thing that I thought was a little over the top was the amount f-bombs being dropped but other than that I loved it.

    I've seen this movie twice and I grew to like it even better the second time! The gore was more like "whoa, this is awesome!" and the story itself is very original, as well it has a politcal commentary to it.

    Re: District 9 - Discussion Thread

    District 9 was an unbelievable movie. I haven't gone to the theaters in a while, but when I saw this, I definitely had the urge to go to the movies more often.

    The plot and backstory are very compelling and almost seem realistic. I loved the varying use of camera angles and the documentary-style introduction. You should go out and see this movie as soon as possible.

    In case anyone didn't know, the backstory of District 9 is based on the district six, an area in Cape Town during South African apartheid. It is very evident at the beginning; as the movie continues though, it takes a lesser role. The movie took the real life event and tweaked it into a sci-fi hit. However, don't think that the whole movie is about the undertone of apartheid; it is a very adventure/action/sci-fi plot that will put you at the edge of your seat (please ignore the cliché).

    In regards to any criticism, the gore in the movie at times is intense but not over-the-top. It is also not cheesy, Hollywood gore; somewhat realistic but not nauseating. Also, the f-bomb is used very often and at some times is distracting, but for the most part it doesn't take away from the film.

    District 9 is worth 5 stars in my book.

    This was a brilliant movie. The storyline was very well thought out and it is probably the best sci-fi movie to have come out in a long time.

    Plus, after I saw the movie and returned home, just thinking about the whole concept of this film made me love it even more.

    I'd like to know who thought GI Joe was better than D9.
