Re: 2009 Best and Worst Movies

I actually didnt get the hub-bub over District 9. I love sci-fi, and I found this film exploitive and ugly. Using a real slum as a background to tell a story about a hapless paper pusher and alien guns is just lame considering the current RL goings on in those slums. Ironic too, because if you Google news about the slums of Johannesburg, you now get a bunch of hits about the film, not the real place.

I guess maybe that's the idea?
