Sharlto Copley has uploaded close to 200 behind the scenes photos to his facebook. Just a quick heads up.

Watched this the other night and thought it was okay. It was pretty good but it was too hyped for me. The documentary style + special effects kinda got boring for me. I also found scenes and plot points a bit cliche in parts, which was disappointing as the story itself was pretty original.

Lick, thanks for that. Awesome man! I'm going to swing over and check all those out on my lunch break.

I didn't really care for it. I was too dull for me to ignore how contrived and predictable it all was. At least came with a demo for GoWIII. :shrug:

Man, this one took a while to get going, but it was so worth it when it finally did. A very deliberately paced build up, with a great pay off. And a lot of original ideas, in my opinion. Nothing I really feel the need to own, but I'm really glad I saw it. Nice to see a sci-fi movie outside the realms of your typical Washington DC stuff.

Are you sure you're not confusing District 9 with John Sayles' Brother from Another Planet?

Maybe he's just been watching too much Independence Day.

Kaycee has been bumping months old threads for the past week or so (six old South Park threads just today in TV Talk). The cynic in me thinks it's to build up a quick post count so he can begin spamming for something.

He (or she) is past the 30 post count already, though. I just think they have a Starz subscription, because most of the movies bumped have been in heavy rotation on that network for at least month. Nothing wrong with catching a flick, and bumping it's thread, right?
