A Different Kind of Sci-Fi: District 9
I played hooky from work for a couple of hours this afternoon to go and see District 9 -- and I have to tell you, I really enjoyed it.
I mean, not like Star Trek (which I really loved, by the way, but it was more action/adventure foo), but in a different, more "honest & respectful" Sci-Fi kind-of-weird-way. It was definitely different, and I can't explain why, but Sci-Fi affectionados who have seen it can probably articulate it better than I can.
Worth an afternoon matinée ticket price.
