Yes, I saw District 9 tonight, and yes, I’m a fan. If you haven’t seen a trailer for it yet you can view one here (it’s rated R):
There are some terrific special effects in the movie, but it’s really more about the story. The juxtaposition of an alien slum in South Africa with its history of apartheid adds layers of complexity to an already intricate story. If you’re looking for a science fiction movie with good effects and even better plot you should definitely check this one out.
