Proof of intelligent life in the film universe...

"There's a lot of secrets in District 9..."

District 9, the searing debut feature of South African director Neill Blomkamp, is a summer flick of a rare breed: it's a science fiction movie with depth and provocative ideas that also leaves space for violence and action. With heavyweight New Zealand moviemaker Peter Jackson serving as producer, this excellent low-budget sci-fi actioner... read more

''I mean, you can't say they don't look like that, that's what they look like, right? They look like prawns.''

An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent that is exposed to their biotechnology.

Sharlto Copley: Wikus Van De Merwe

It's safe to say District 9 is a breath o... read more

Missed ‘Alien Nation’ and its arrival of an Alien slave ship on Earth the first time round? Well the good news is that this is almost a remake, that is if the Aliens landed in South Africa and were more insectoid in appearance. District 9 is partially filmed in that terrible Cloverfield/documentary style, so you learn from the start that key figures survive and life doesn’t change too much i... read more

Aliens land in South Africa and have no way home. Years later after living in a slum and wearing out their welcome the "Non-Humans" are being moved to a new tent city overseen by Multi-National United. The movie follows an MNU employee tasked with leading the relocation and his relationship with one of the alien leaders.

The future kind of sucks. (354 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Giant spaceships hover the planet, prawn like aliens are treated, as second class citizens. And a man turns into a alien, himself. Shaky camera work, also is everywhere. Year it takes place: 21st centuryish, give or take."

“let's cut to the chase, this movie has one of the best 3rd acts I've ever seen in a movie.

now let's face it, a lot of movies were awful in 2009. disappointments, overrated garbage and just bad movies. oh my god, the score. this is probably the best movie score since batman begins. something I like is that the score is a real score and not that marvel nonsense.

the action is realistic and the story makes sense. Sharlto Copley is one of my favorite actors and his performance in this movie is Oscar worthy. I liked Elysium and Chappie was pretty bad but I still have faith in this director. people don't like Elysium because the world is bribed my violence.

It's an underrated masterpiece that should be more appreciated.” read more

"04.01. Netflix, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Neill Blomkamp Once they basically do away with the mockumentary style, apparently because they can't make the entire film work in that style, the film turns into a rather boring and generic action film with unlikable characters. Just replace your average American metropolis with Johannesburg and give some of your characters an alien costume (as the aliens behave exactly like human beings) and you've got District 9. The concept is cool per se and they co"
