First Movie of the New Year
Watched District 9 on New Years, but haven't had a chance to sit down and comment until tonight. This is one of those classic didn't hate it, didn't love it deals. A lot of positive feedback from family and friends might have elevated my expectations for this one. I did enjoy the whole riff on aparteid, and the creativity on a budget is truly impressive. I think I'm more impressed by the idea of this movie, the idea that this thing came out of nowhere and surprised people. The director, Blomkamp, is clearly one to watch, so I would recommend checking this out, if for no other reason than you always want to get in on the ground floor with a new voice.
