District 9

Post by knotkranky » Fri Jul 31, 2009 4:19 am

Hopefully a beautifully gritty sci fi for us bigger kids this time.

Peter Jackson produced. Good odds to be a real winner.

Odd, when I looked up the wiki on this a few weeks ago the plot explained that the actor William Allen Young's character was the main character of the film. I remember because I thought it was a strange but very cool casting choice. Now it seems his character isn't the lead and he's not even in the trailers. :?

Still looks cool though.

Yeah, i've been looking around at this for over a week and find the info disjointed.

I think the campaign is keeping us and the press guessing.

I'm really excited about this film, I'm all about more scifi movies being made just saw moon the other day fantastic film imo.

The reason I'm really excited about these films is that they are really low budget for what they pull off moon was 5 million
district 9 was 30. Which is really impressive considering how they look. I'm hoping this gets the studios to fund more scifi films.

assuming that they make a proper return well get more.... go see these films DAMMIT!

Really looking forward to this one. I love how it seems like the aliens are actually the "good guys" too.

I can't tell if you're serious or not, but if you are, then I apologize. It's pretty clear in all the trailers what I mean by "good guys".

Oh he's serious alright :wink: but try the "don't give a shit" method. Works best for most things internet. 8)

yeah, I have been looking forward to seeing this since I saw the trailer. I thought we were pretty much done with SciFi movies until end of the year when Avatar comes out, so this is a nice bonus!

storyline doesnt look too impressive, but the graphics that ive seen in a trailor - WOOOOWWWW Holy Snooze!! They look possibly the best Ive seen to date.
Looking forward to this for the visual merit alone!

I really hope this movie gives my family a new set of "Afrikaans" catch-phrases...

"Who is de dickhead now, eh?" from Lethal Weapon 2 is getting really old . . . :oops:
