    "District 9" This summer's sleeper hit movie?

    Based upon the trailer, this movie has huge potential. Storyline seems very unique.

    Based on the trailer alone I would go see it. When does it come out? Hopefully I will get to see some of the good movies (in a real theater) from the summer when I get home.

    The storyline is only unique if you never saw Alien Nation.

    That said, I'm still looking forward to this. It'll be nice to have another science fiction movie actually worth seeing this summer (Star Trek being the only other one).

    District 9 comes out in August.

    Can't wait for this one! Look up some of the directors short films on you tube under Neil Blomkamp. Very slick stuff.

    I think they ripped off Strange Brew...

    That guy, he said I should be oblong and have my knees removed. But I don't trust him, he plays the banjo.

    Peter Jackson is affiliated, I'm sold
    The Rules:
    1. Bring a gun, Preferably bring two guns. Bring all your friends who have guns.
    2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice, AKA Double Tap
    3. Only hits count, the only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss
    4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly
    If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun

    Alien Nation meets Transformers on a lowish budget.

    I kinda like the low budget look. Almost gives it a more realistic feel.

    I suppose a bit more like a documentary, but it's certaintly not a unique concept.
