Not the typical aliens invading movie. I thought it was really fucking great.
TheAnalogKid2112
A new alien movie? I never heard of it.

EDIT: Holy shit. I just saw the trailer. This movie looks awesome! I'm totally going to see it this week.

For anyone else who doesn't know wtf it is: [youtube]d6PDlMggROA[/youtube]

The trailer gives me the creeps.
But looks awesome ;o

I've wanting to go see this. Didn't want to read the reviews; summaries; just wanted to go into it with no expectations. Looks awesome. If Penis Compensator liked it, than I'm sure it will be good.

Might go tonight.

it was pretty good... some were upset when the credits rolled, yelling "REFUND!!" but i think those are the kinds of people that wanted non-stop action, which you don't get... instead you get a deep story with moral dilemmas and action sprinkled in to keep the idiots happy... good film and great use of the cameras... it brought a refreshing feeling to the movie...

I'm going to see it tonight. I left a message on their hotline saying I was attacked by a non-human, then I said I was able to secure a walker and smash it's face in.

Yeah it was a really good movie.
i must admit, at the beginning i thought i made a mistake because it was boring and i just really did not like the style ... but then it was great, definitely one of the best movies I've seen in a while.
for those of you that care, the Director has given more back story and it's pretty interesting and it does answer some questions and it gives enough info to come up with answers to other questions: http://io9.com/5331799/district-9s-directo...lien-back-story .

I fucking loved this movie. I give mad props to any big budget movie that uses a complete no-name cast.

It actually wasn't big budget. Apparently it costed 30 million to make. Compared to transformers 2 costing 200 million to make.

Napoleon Dynamite sure as hell can...

But this movie was fucking amazing, I find it funny how it cost 170 million less than transformers, yet still kicked the shit outta it.

I think I already told Ben I liked this movie. Yes, not a masterpiece by any means but compared to other movies I can actually recall certain scenes. The accents were all I needed to initially like the director. His next movie will hopefully show him doing something outside his comfort zone though, I got my tabs on this guy.

Yah but I think most would agree District 9 is a better movie. I bet 1/2 that budget was just paying for Megan Fox and Shia TheBeef.

I watched this two days ago. I really enjoyed it. I couldn't stand the South African accent, but meh. The story was really cool, i'd imagine this being a more realistic alien invasion story, then the blockbuster blow the shit out of mankind type of film.

Nice documentary style film. 9/10

I would too, but all my fathers relatives are South african, plus my aunt lives in Jo-burg, which is where the movie took place.

Same here. My Father is half South African, my Grandfather is English, but my Grandmother is from Johannesburg, and they both live there. I still hated the accent in the film though, it was too much lol

Not me, I spent a month In Cape town with my relatives, so I got pretty used to the accent.

I'm used to it, i just didn't like the way the "main character" sounded. It kind of sounded too over the top.

Just went to see it (Came out today). It was really what I was not expecting at all, very gory as well but an awesome film. Leaves it right open for another film, District 10.

But look at it this way, it's quite obvious with the way [spoiler]how we have no idea if the mothership came back to Earth with help, what would happen to the main character, did Christopher make it even back to his homeland, what happened to those in District 10 etc.[/spoiler]
