I went to a screening of “District 9,” last week. The movie–about giant aliens who come to South Africa–was pretty decent, and I’m surprised they saved it for an August release, since August is usually the cemetery for bad movies. This one was much better than I expected and far better than a typical August movie (though I didn’t agree with its message). I like the sci-fi, aliens from outer space movies, like this one.
My full review will be posted on Friday. But, for now, I’ll say this: it’s smartly shot in a documentary style, and the typical liberal activist and government fawning over the violent alien “prawns” and much else in the movie reminded me of the Palestinians and our uber-tolerance of them.
Like I said, my full review will be posted on Friday, but, in the meantime, here’s the trailer:
