Hey pitches (like pit bitches get it? haa i suck) anwyay, DISTRICT 9!!! i watched it last night after hearing alot of mixed reviews and i gotta say man, that movie is ****ing awesome. I've been waiting for a new movie to come out that doesnt suck for a looooong ****in time and i reckon this didnt dissapoint BUT heaps and heaps of people have flamed it and said that it sucks and is boring as **** which i just dont understand. I mean its one huge metaphor that sums up all the political **** thats gone down in the past few years in a fairly piss taking kinda way with a tight ****in story to boot. Man i dunnno are people just idiots who crave ****ty hollywood action and crass jokes or do i just have unusual tastes.. TELL ME!!!!

To be honest, I thought it sucked.

All my friends liked it though. It just seemed very boring to me

and the main character's accent was very annoying.

the main character was south african so of course his accent was annoying, its like the missing link between new zealand and australian accents. Kind of like myself..

Yes, gore is so extreme these days.

And it really was a stereotypical 'blow everything up' thing. He has a gun that makes people explode ffs.

You also need to take the fact that it was a South African made movie with a small budget into consideration. That makes it fairly more impressive.

Sure there were some dumb things, but over all a pretty kickass film.

It's not the prevailing South African accent, it's an Afrikaaner accent - roughly equivalent to a hillybilly accent to put it into a more commonly understood context.

Dude, that's not his accent.


It's more like "voooking prrrooons"


Plus, that accent is just plain cool.

You could tell it was low budget. I was disappoint.

it wasnt low budget they intentionally shot it like that to give more of a documenty type feel too it. You wanna see low budget, watch any of peter jacksons first few movies ****in hi-larious, and pretty gory too...

Loved it. Loved the story, the characters, the designs. Even my girlfriend liked it, and she's no sci-fi fan. Mutating into an alien looks painful, though, did make me feel a little bit sick at some junctures.

Compare D9 to say....GI Joe or Transformers...they are complete **** in comparison. Predictable Hollywood ****.

Transformers was better than District 9. Although District 9 was awesome. The guys accent was brilliant, the fact they were all South African made the film for me

Come on. Transformers is one of the worst pile of craps ever made. They try to sell it with Megan Fox but it doesn't make up for bad writing.

Heh. I never watched it or anything before the film came out. The most I knew about them was that they were robot car things.

As soon as I heard their names I was like......you can't be serious....It's like they think we're all 12 year olds.

Transformers aren't that big here I guess. My older brother likes them though. Maybe it's a generation thing.

It's a kids film with fantastic visuals but a poor storyline and character progression, unbearable to sit through the whole film.

All post 90s action movies are garbage. I don't want these lame-ass psuedo kung fu pg-13 pussies trying to karate chop terrorists to death with more computer gen parts than Toy Story.

Give me the glory days with the miniatures, robotic monsters, Bruce Willis, guns REAL explosions and heros who are unafraid to swear at the person they've just shot in the face.
