Totaly agree with geggis. It really is a top film. One of the best sci-fi drama I've ever seen since 2001: A space odyssey. I really recommend it!
You know, I was almost entirely convinced my girlfriend had no time for Serious Sci-fi after (really) hating Blade Runner, disliking Sunshine, Alien, Aliens and Alien 3 then she pulled a curve ball by loving 2001 and Moon. It was a pleasant surprise!

I thought District 9 was, overall, a great film. It's got some clever juxtapositions with real life discrimination and prejudice (like you said) but is also shot through with black comedy. The film falters on a number of occasions but it's good fun. It's definitely apparent that the director loves Valve too.

I'm with you Fantasy, I had high expectations for it and while it didn't blow me away either it was a great bit of sci-fi. One of my friends preferred it to Moon which is pure nonsense if you ask me!
