I’m pretty vocal about my distaste for all that is all Hollywood; but the other day, Nan convinced me to watch a flick that renewed my faith in film.
The movie in question was District 9. Now, I really didn’t know what to expect about this flick, but I can honestly say that I was so impressed by it that I ended up watching it twice over a two day period. Checkout the trailer for more
I won’t talk much about the story of the movie, as I don’t want to give much away. But if it were a recipe, this movie would be a bit of aliens, mixed with the twilight zone, and a little conspiracy theory to round it out. So if you dig on any of those things, I am sure you will dig the movie. Additionally, director of the flick, Neill Blomkamp went to Vancouver Film School, so go support a local done well.
Also, if lead actor Sharto Copley does not get an oscar for his performance, I’m going on a hunger strike*.
