District 9 was great, like one of the best films of the year. It had a good balance between plot, depth, and action, I was worried there would be too much action for such a good premise but I was proved wrong.

Reception looks good so far. Alas, I won't be able to see it for a little while yet. So please, no spoilers guys.

I saw G.I. Joe instead of this because no one I went with was interested in aliens called Prauns.

Edit: It's actually spelled with a 'u'. Huh.

I saw it yesterday. I think it was good, not great. There was more action that I was expecting.

you're probably the first person I've seen who doesn't love the movie into infinity. then again, I haven't read through the thread on Facepunch yet. anyone who knows facepunch knows that every thread is a flame war waiting to happen.

This movie was fucking awesome.

I know you can't please everyone, but this film is instantly one of my favorite movies ever.

Also, I guess Preston's not the only alien who likes the word 'fuck'. By the way, that's a spoiler.

you mean when Wikus was in the exosuit and used that gravity gun thing to shoot the dead pig at some guy, launching both through a wall? that was awesome.

Spoiler:
Remember when he was forced to test the guns on dead pigs? Then he was ordered to fire on a prawn, and kept shouting that he doesn't want to kill the alien and he would rather shoot the dead pig. Then near the end he did shoot a dead pig.

The climax was great. I love how the robot was used without seeming forced at all.
