    Great viral marketing techniques being used as well. I'd suggest spending some time looking through that website.

    BAD. ***.

    Best scifi flick in years. Go see it immediately, but do not take your children, it is very violent and lots of cursing.

    Dude, if ANYONE I went with to a movie tried to walk out I'd tell them to STFU and GTFO and I'd keep watching the movie. Walking out of a movie is one of the dumbest ****ing thing people do. Do some friggin' research before you waste your money *******.

    Also, this is why I don't go to the movies with anyone but my wife, brother, or trusted friends.

    Like I said, I loved it! It was tough when everyone that's with you is hating it and complaining. I was kinda pissed tho!

    Saw it last week with the wife, she's not into scifi stuff but even she liked it. Very original, badass flick. Love the setup in the end as well which should hint a sequal.

    I love Peter Jackson More now as a Film Maker. District 9 is a must see if you are a Jackson Fan and even if not it has an Oh So Excellent story. It is not a typical SciFi Movie but is one of Peter Jackson's best movies he has done.

    :lol:

    Peter Jackson was only a producer. The film is directed by Neill Blomkamp.

    Peter Jackson was one of the Film Makers. :icon_huh:

    Peter Jackson was not the Director but was instrumental in getting the film done as Film Maker/Producer and IMO is one of the best he has done not in the Seat of the Director.

    I agree though that Neill Blomkamp will be a big Director from here on out. District 9 is proof of that.

    If you wanna see something really amazing he did, google the Halo 3 trailer he did. It's very similar to the style of D9.

    And I wasn't trying to rain on your parade, just point out PJ was more indirectly responsible for D9 as a producer, the bulk of the story and direction style is all Blomkamp.
