District 9 (13-Aug-2009)

Director: Neill Blomkamp

Writers: Neill Blomkamp; Terri Tatchell

Music by: Clinton Shorter

Producers: Peter Jackson; Carolynne Cunningham

Keywords: Sci-Fi

Destitute refugee space aliens arrive in Johannesburg; South Africans respond in kind by building ghettos and using the aliens for forced labor. Remind you of anything? Long-distance space travel has not been kind to the "prauns." The alien invasion force possesses fantastic ballistic technology, which only they can control -- but go along with the humans' brutality anyway. Its creatures too inept to zerg rush, the protagonist stuttering and stultified, we find out -- blush -- the monsters is us. Despite the heavy-handed morality, it is quite a good film.
