"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

The «District 9» is a pleasant cinematic surprise this year because it deals with a subject and chilioeipomeno paraftharmeno, gives it new life by adding what was missing all these years: realism. Using documentary technique and cool colors throughout your film creates a sense of what actually happens to see another side of the planet and you're stuck in your easy chair to watch the internationa... 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.

" Notes: I thought it was a very interesting and entertaining movie. I especially enjoyed the 1st half which was just great. Then, the 2nd half was little too much action-oriented for my taste but still it was a very good and original picture. The other day I watched it again with Nick, my step-son, who really loved it and it still holds up pretty good. One of the best thing about this flick was also the main character, Wikus Van De Merwe.

Movies i Watched - March 2015 (14 movies items)

" After watching Chappie at the cinema i decided to rewatch what i consider to be Blomkamp´s masterpiece, everything that i think represents him as a director is represented here in the best way possible to the point where i think its gonna be hard for him to accomplish something at the same level (even though i think Chappie was really close) everything shows a perfect balance, from the charachters, the drama,the action and even the story and the world built around it is just fascinating, its"

Intelligent & Entertaining

“I wasn't a fan of this film when it first came out, I must admit after three or four viewings I have quite grown to like it. It's an action movie, and for all intents and purposes an intelligent one, but don't expect a ton of depth in terms of character development or symbolism.

The plot is pretty simple- a colony of about 1.5 million bug-like aliens have their ship break down on them above Johannesburg. After several months of the ship just, well, hovering there, a team of people get inside the ship and find that the aliens are agitated, starving, and living in their own filth.

The 'colonization' of the aliens goes pretty much exactly the way I thought it would in reality- no laser beams, no probing, just good ol'-fashioned oppression and humans sticking their noses wh” read more
