District 9

You haven't seen it? Go! Before it's out of theaters. Peter Jackson's name was given during the commercials and just enough info for me to think it was a typical story of aliens and humans not getting along (i.e. a statement on race relations), but it all works out. I went with Brian and he thought the same and we mainly saw it just to get together. We were wrong about the movie and glad of it (Jackson was merely one of the producers). Shot in a faux documentary and news clip style, the film was fascinating, poignant, action-packed, and hilarious all in one. It dealt with a plethora of issues and did it well. I don't want to say more. Go see it. 9
