I’d give this district a 9 and not a 10. It’s nearly perfect but just misses the mark. This movie starts off really interesting with a documentary-style opening. It also is an alien movie not set in New York or Washington D.C. It’s actually in South Africa. This film has some of the best computer animation I’ve ever seen. It all looks really real. The humor is really spot on and Neill Blomkamp’s direction is just gorgeous. The movie does feel a bit long, but honestly when you see people getting liquified by a lightning gun made by aliens you just have to like it. This is one of those movies you don’t hear a ton of people talk about, but it is just a pleasure to see. I wish this was as popular as a Marvel movie. This film also makes me oddly hungry for shrimp… not sure why.
