District 9

CRAZY!!! Peter Jackson took an already well travelled road and found a new path. Before seeing the movie I heard that it was a V or Alien Nation rip off. Well, it does have a similar feel, but in no way directly apes any of those (or other alien movies for that matter). It also has a little Independance Day thrown in for good measure.

Word of warning: If your kids still think Elmo is their best friend DO NOT take them. There is a lot of GORRY violence, especially near the end, and really foul language scattered throughout. I don't know who the effects artist was but the aliens were scarry and strange (just as any good alien should be) and he/she should be nomiated for an oscar.

Peter Jackson had me hooked from the first teaser for The Fellowship; even King Kong was tollerable for me. Yep, I like anything different that's reasonably well written and acted with an unexpected twist. This one kept me flipping loyalties between the Prauns and humans; which was worse?

For real??? I think maybe I need to see it again, but with a different mind set. I was going in expecting like a Independence Day or Aliens movie.....

How can there not be from mister "Lord of the Rings" himself? The way it ended actually screams for more.
