I LOVED DISTRICT 9! This movie will definitely go down as a sci-fi classic! I recommend it to all hardcore 70s/80s alien flick fans. I can't articulate what elements of the movie did it for me, but it brought about that same sense of nostalgia. The genre has been lacking for the past the past 10 years and I feel like District 9 set a new precedent for it. The preview does a great job of giving moviegoers an idea of what the film is about, but there's so much more to it than that. The plot was so original and refreshing. The movie itself is a little creepy and unsettling, but in a good way. After all, the function of cinema is to entertain and invoke some type of emotion, right? All this and there were absolutely no big name actors to distract you from enjoying the movie.
GO SEE IT!
