    Peter Jackson is brilliant.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Zing!
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    Much better.

    I enjoyed District 9, although I'm not as bonkers as some people are over it. I thought the premise was fantastic, and the first part of the movie where the allegory was set up was very strong. Later on though, there were plot holes you could drive a truck through. In the moment, the movie's strengths covered for it to a degree, but afterwards you kind of think, "That made no sense." I did really like the ending, though.

    It was quite a bit better than I expected, but it seems like all you have to do to appease most Sci-Fi people these days is take some guns from Unreal Tournament and Half-Life 2.

    Plot wise, there's only one thing I couldn't even begin to make any sense of whatsoever. However, for the sake of safety I do keep animals away from my car when I fill it up now.

    there were definately holes. id love to discuss those but the marketing campaign for district 9 was very well done, in that it didn't ruin a damn thing, plot-wise. i respect that.

    It was cool and I enjoyed it.

    Christopher was cool. I wondered what his native name was, and why he wore those clothes.

    He wasn't worker/slave class.

    Real reason: So we could identify with him and sympathize with him more.
