District 9 the movie

Since this has been a rather long weekend (for those working in Selangor), we've been catching up on movie watching. Another great movie that had me gnashing my teeth and gnawing my nails was District 9.

Alien beings living amongst men, in slum-like conditions, exploited and un-loved/un-wanted.. one day, a government agent's life is changed forever .. because.. (you have to watch it to find out!) With a fast paced, fiendish plot this has got to be one of the more impressive sci-fi films I have had the pleasure of watching recently.

This show totally reminds me of THE FLY (1986)!



cumi: Underlying the action/drama/comedy, the movie parallel's many of today's human rights issues. Can't wait to know what happens 3 years from now....

As much as I liked this movie, all the gory bits where he keeps tearing bits off his body had me completely grossed out and almost screaming "STOP eeeettttttttttttt...! Stop doing that to yourself!!!!!"....

Aiks... i just watched this today.Despite the gore, rather thought-provoking.

talking bout nails, i still rmbr the image of the guy biting of his.

but really, a very thought provoking movie. tongue in cheek somewhat.

Good movie. Despite the prawns, it's easy to relate to it.

Jason said...

Prawns! Love the movie except the shaky camera view.

CUMI & CIKI said...

totally agree. Never seen things from the perspective of the prawn.. if you know what I mean..

Cumi wanted to barf too.. but at least not as shaky as some othr movies such as Cloverfields. That was a dumb movie. Not worth the vertigo!
