Fucky Film Review!

District 9

Posted by Web Manager on April 21, 2010

Neill Blomkamp 2009

Solid scifi trilla. The action moves along swiftly and assuredly with a unique documentary filming style and very loose and natural performances from the actors (especially the likable lead). Why are the aliens of so many filmmakers’ imagination bug-like? Are they like Arthur Clarke’s overlords that we remembered in our collective memory of the future and after whom we modeled our depictions of the devil? Yes yes? Granted, these were supposed to be more like terrestrial crustaceans (prawns, to be exact) but really what are land crustaceans if not oversized insects?). I would like to see some aliens that look like grizzly bears, or lizards, or Kevin Costner.
