[MOVIE] District 9

*If this thread already exists, please tell me and delete it*


From Wikipedia:

In March 1982, a large alien spacecraft comes to Earth, hovering motionless above Johannesburg, South Africa. After three months, a team enters the ship, discovering a large group of sick and malnourished extraterrestrials, who are then given food, shelter, and health care on Earth. The aliens, derogatorily referred to by some locals as "prawns", are confined to a government camp inside Johannesburg known as District 9.


Basically, this movie is about aliens in Nigeria. I absolutely LOVED it, it was amazing, and the story was pretty good. It focuses on segregation between aliens and humans in Nigeria. The plots, the characters were just amazing to me. I do hope for a sequel.

One of my favourites actually. I could rewatch this again too.

The show itself is unique, and the storyline is touching. The acting, although I wasn't paying much attention to it, was actually really good.

Considering how much money it made, despite the low costs (no famous actors/people) I'd say it was a pretty successful hit financially too.

The story was very original, though it had a bit here and there that could've been taken from District B13 (A French Movie), otherwise it's totally in it's own category in my opinion.

Yea, District 9 was very original and didn't feel like a typical alien movie. By typical alien movie, I mean, aliens trying to take over Earth, etc. The set of actors were amazing, they did GREAT on their roles, and the story was just WOW. Because it didn't have any "famous" actors, it amazed me even more. I'm not sure if it was me or not, but the scenes involving the government, really made me emotional. It made me hate the government for what they were doing. The movie made you empathize with the aliens, how they were treated, separated from humans. The themes of this movie: Racism and Segregation. These two themes were put to use beautifully, the ways they were depicted. I can not think of a better way to puts these two themes together.

Loved this movie, ended up watching it three times that day.


It wasn't like most of the other alien movies, it touched on a lot of social problems. think of it as a narrative to society, no matter the location. Great great movie.
