District 9 had a deep plot and I think that people who didn't like it, either didn't understand it or only have tolerance for movies with big explosions shit. >smh

It was alright, I felt that Wikkus or whatever was a selfish twat. He should have helped the aliens escape and stayed an alien until 3 years or some shit.

He didn't fully utilize the mech too. tongueface

I didn't read all 9 pages of this discussion, but i just got out of it.

I thought it was EXCELLENT; It was very thought provoking on the human nature. Plus, i was going nutty from when they busted in that UNM(?) place till the end of the movie. I fully understand why critics gave it an A-.

Can't wait for the sequel smokeyface

my thoughts exactly. I was mad/annoyed at Wikkus's selfishness for his own desire when Christopher wanted to save His people from earth. Seriously if Wikkus Didnt knock Christopher out they would've both be on the ship.

when they both invaded MNU i was like AWE SHIT ITS THE CHIEF AND ARBITER BRINGING ON THE PAIN, hahahaha. i loved that scene, it had more meaning to it than just explosions too.

Excellent movie! all the hype around it stayed true... Great plot around the movie, and the aliens were funny! Also i found it cool how they made the aliens interact with humans and vise versa! Also rumored there is another one its way!

That's how they addressed current human nature; the greed of one's own selfish benefits.

good movie. first half was a bit slow.

now why didn't the aliens just kill the nigerians and/or everyone else with their weaponry. don't trade em for catfood. and wikus needs to learn how to use that suit. abuse that lightning cannon(?!? ), the taser thing, and those rocket launchers please.

edit: good point (below) blushing and it would've ruined the movie lol.

Well they were stranded on another planet. they have a limited population, I wouldn't want to wage war against an entire planet. you gotta remember that human weapons could do as much harm to them as alien weapons to humans.

That's how they addressed current human nature; the greed of one's own selfish benefits.


I never really noticed that. I noticed human natures own greed through Wikkus's father in law, The MNU and the Nigerian Gangster. I felt sympathetic for Wikkus till his own greed made him knock Christopher out. but that all changed when he had a change of heart and went suicidal Rambo on the mercenaries.

I didn't like the ending. The movie was too short.

I don't understand how the aliens and humans can understand each other. I missed the first 15 minutes.

It explained towards the beginning that this was just the worker class of aliens. They didn't really know how to think for themselves or how to organize.

First 15 minutes answers a lot of questions that people keep calling "plot holes." The aliens have been there for nearly 30 years. In 30 years it's certainly possible they could learn to understand each others language but they might not be able to speak each others language because of the physical sounds they make.

20 years actually, lol

It was a fresh take on alien/sci-fi genre while mixing in some tongue in cheek looks at the current state of the world.

Those who didn't enjoy it probably are the types who thought GI JOE was good.


G.I. Joe SUCKS! Had potential but still sucked ass. District 9> G.I. Joe. But yes the reason why this movie was good is the meaning behind it.

great movie, kinda emotional in the end

i want him to make a sequel, and a part of me kinda wants him to not
September 04, 2009 @ 21:00:29
the movi was so awesome, i love when wikkus catches the rocket to save christophers ship in the mech suit

and when he says "fook"blushing
September 04, 2009 @ 21:16:46
I thought the movie was great, a totally new concept on alien films. Somewhat a documentary, can't wait for the sequelsmokeyface

saw this film last night, dope as hell. it was a bit boring at the start, the build up made it feel really long. as soon as wikus got sprayed by that shit i knew what was gonna happen to him, so obvious.

they'll blatently make a sequal, like 3 years later when christopher goes to save wikus or some shit.

September 07, 2009 @ 10:55:35

i need one of those alien guns
September 08, 2009 @ 06:11:36
and turn into a prawn to operate them?

I still can't get over the mech suit. that thing was insane on "auto pilot" or "auto defense". makes you think though, if the mech had the ability to gather bullets and spray it back and wikkus witnessed it. why didn't he do that himself? I did like it when he went all Gundam Heavy Arms on em.

just came back from watching .

seriously this movie had it all. i enjoyed every second of it

i loved everytime wikus would obliterate the humans with the guns. felt so badass hhaha
September 13, 2009 @ 15:08:36
