District 9

saw this movie tonight with my college buddy Andrew W.G. and it is an awesome MOVIE!
science fiction. aliens came to earth and their ship was stuck hovering over johannesburg, South AFrica. and all these aliens end up living in a shanty town and then at some point, things are going wrong etc etc. EXCELLENT job done by the main actor. and the plot moves and changes and turns and it's going back and forth. there is some graphic violence involved in people getting shot, but they don't show much more than red/pink liquid gunk splashing around off the camera and some limbs now and then etc.
Oh yeah, it's shot sort of half and half documentary style. The alines are a bit insect looking, which makes you feel almost uncaring what happens to them, but by the end, you sort of see their as Jean Luc Picard would say "sentient beings". very good film. go see it.
