District 9

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I suppose I’m a fan of alien movies, mainly in the sense that we don’t really know if they exist or not. Take seeing a film like “District 9″ and then as part of your double feature seeing “Steel Magnolias”. Right. The two just don’t seem to be comparable on the same level, do they?

  • Excerpt: One of the most oft-discussed big budget fallouts in Hollywood – Microsoft’s canning of Peter Jackson ’s supposedly lavishly overdone "Halo" project – was one of the greatest things to happen in modern movie history.

  • Summary: At first I was a little disappointed in District 9 . I expected Alien Nation , or something along those lines. The docu-style shooting took me a bit by surprise, and so I was heading, or so I thought, to disappointment.

22 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Human behavior in District 9 is deplorable. MNU employee Wikus Van De Merwe is investigating the alien-populated District 9, and discovers eggs laid by the Prawns, the latter term offensive slang for the aliens.

District 9

Cinema Blend
14 August 2009
  • Excerpt: For the second time this summer, a young, brand-new director has emerged from out of nowhere to present a vision of where sci-fi can go from here. It first happened with Moon , the elegant and tightly sealed thinkpiece from Duncan Jones that operated far more with the head than with the heart.

14 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Smuggling a strong political allegory under the guise of a scrappy, docu-style science fiction thriller, Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 asks a simple question: If an alien spacecraft stalled out over a major city, stranding legions of starving and impoverished creatures, how would humankind respond?

  • Summary: Inventive, intriguing sci-fi indie with mainstream polish is pure allegory - and isn't afraid of the questions it raises or the objections it may incur.

  • Summary: First-time director Neil Blomkamp smashes onto the filmmaking scene with his sharply original debut movie, delivering a fast-paced thriller packed full of gags and guts in the manner of his mentor, producer Peter Jackson. More D9 is more than just a Close Encounters for the YouTube age.

  • Conclusion: Blomkamp’s prawn cocktail has more than enough stylistic chutzpah and originality to make District 9 an essential date.
