District 9

Probably the best sci-fi film of at least the last ten years, a highly intelligent, sharply observed and meaningful movie which packs a hefty emotional punch. Obviously, if your preference in alien films involves Arnie and a big gun, this might be a bit disappointing (although the action-packed third act is very exciting), but if you want an original vision that is fully realised and executed, you won't go far wrong. Marvellous. 5/5

  1. An absolutely amazing, thought-provoking film. Us versus Them, whoever, or whatever, they and we are.

  2. Yes, I loved the premise and set-up of this film, though actually felt the somewhat "Arnie and big gun" ending detracted a little from it. It was as though Peter Jackson got carried away with his own ability to make things blow up. Nonetheless, I'd still give it 4 & 1/2.
