  • This baby has the stuff to end the movie summer on a note of dazzle and distinction. show more

  • Every now and then, a film comes along that both defies and compels description. District 9 is one such movie: a science-fiction action vehicle so brilliantly and fully imagined that real life, when it resumes after the credits, arrives with a new sense of dread. show more

  • With its clever faux documentary style, this is the most imaginative science-fiction movie to come along in years. show more

    Terrible. Completely overrated. Basically said humanity is incapable of empathy unless you become what you fear. No representation of an opposing opinion, makes every human being look shallow. \"If they were from another country, we\'d understand. But they\'re from another planet, so no.\" Direct quote.

    Wow! Where to start? A thinly veiled political statement: "20+ years after aparteid it just isn't working. No matter how we try they can't take care of themselves". Substitute indigenous peoples for the "Prawns" and there you have it. Another "I can't believe someone actually paid to make this" trash bin classic. Hated it.
