    Default *Thinks her period must be coming early*

    Saw it last night, ugh, went in without a clue about it...

    I felt physically sick for about 75% of it, and couldn't stop crying for about the next two hours after the bit with his arm getting electricity pumped into it *trying to be vaguely unspoilerific*

    It started really getting to me when the main dude mentioned popcorn, it was kinda funny up till then....but that bit, there was just something horrible about it.

    I don't quite know why it got to me so much...I mean, I totally get that the racism and human...ughness was a tad overdone - the subtitles were funny I'll admit - like when the...somewhat deranged military guy was all 'I love to watch shrimps die', it was just exhasperating - ...And the fact humanity is an evil parasite which should be blasted off the face of the earth is kinda my philisophy...But to see it so...done it's overdone...

    And all those shots of Christopher looking so sad, and when he said 'I promise'......

    It was...a good movie though...Granted not one I ever want to see again...

    It wasn't exactly what I expected.

    Once I got used to what it was and where it was going, I really liked it.
    (And I enjoyed the fact it wasn't set in the United States, for once!)

    I actually got sick, though, while watching. All the handheld cam shots and editing, coupled with sitting fairly close to the screen (the theater wasn't very big) sent me finally into a hot flush (sweats and all), gave me a headache, and I was on the verge of nausea. (Not sure if all the close-up carnage and body parts contributed to that either.) I had to watch the last 45-60 minutes of the movie mostly through my peripheral vision.

    Still, I liked it.
    The docu-style was an interesting approach.

    While I did appreciate aspects of the second half and overall liked it, I don't think it was worth a theater experience per se... except for getting a feel for the size of that ship. I usually save my theater experiences (due to cost) to movies with large-scale action, and this one never quite warranted the full screen... it still seemed like small-scale action... sort of like Tommyknockers with a bigger budget but not a bigger plot.

    OK I saw it just now.
    IT WAS GREAT!!!
    If you like District 9, I recommend watching Cloverfield.
    It has a documentary style too.
    They should make some more movies like these.
