haven't seen it, the trailers of the movie were impressive enough to get my interest. It's like Pelham 123, I just feel like I have to watch that movie and it's the same way with Taken.

I can't wait to see Travolta as the bad guy once again, seems to do a wonderful job being the villain, Swordfish to this day is still one of my fave movies.

I almost fell asleep watching it. I don't understand why it was so long, but the story was really interesting and different.

The best movie we've seen this year would be No Country for Old Men, one of the best movies I have ever seen, period. If you haven't seen it, I would highly highly highly recommend it.

Best comedy hands down would be the Hangover followed closely by Pineapple Express.

Worst movies we've seen this year are Taken (don't waste your time) and Funny Games (should never have been made).

I thought Benjamin Gump was a great movie. Most things David Fincher directs are great, and this one is no different.

No Country was awesome! Loved it! Coen Brothers do it again!

Couldn't agree more with Taken. It was CRAP!!!

Why has no one talked about District 9?

I just watched it...and my head is still trying to process the biblical amounts of awesomeness from that movie. Possibly the most original, unique epic I've ever seen. And yes, it can be described as an epic.

The story is so engrossing, so enthralling and captivating, playing on racial overtones with sublime panache that it's hard to believe that one of those districts actually existed -- they do, except it was called district 6 and it was located in Cape Town.

The acting in the movie is just tremendous in my opinion, especially the lead character Wikas. He really lives the character and it's almost surreal to watch him on the screen, because his skill makes you believe for about 99% of the movie that the events actually transpired.

But the best part of the movie, without a doubt, was the special effects. I don't think I've ever seen special effects and CGI that impressive. The aliens existed on the screen. The weaponry engaged all the related senses with authenticity. The human-alien interactions are so natural, you feel like you're watching a live feed off of CNN.

To say the least, this movie is phenomenal. It's a masterpiece of science fiction and will live on with the greats of the genre forever. But not only does it do that, it might also possibly re-invent the way movies of that kind are done.

The blend between documentary style filming and real-time action is so brilliant and so visceral you will most likely sit in your sit for the whole two hours with your mouth open and your eyes bulging out of their sockets soaking in the sheer scale of the movie.

For me, this movie is a 10/10. And if the Academy wasn't run by pillocks who only nominate artsy dramas, this movie would be nominated for an Oscar without question.

Go out and see this movie. You can't possibly be disappointed.

Can't wait to see it. A friend of mine went as far to say that it's the best si-fi movie of the 21st century.

It's already #26 on imdb's Top 250 highest rated movies of all time. That pretty much says it all right there.

It was also done on a 30 million dollar budget, which is unheard of for this type of movie. Peter Jackson is the man!

King Kong is top-10 in the list of most expensive movies, so he knows how to spend 'em too. There is not a single name in the cast I recognize, plus the director also wrote the story. They probably saved a bit in salaries there. I also wonder if they got some breaks from Weta for the special effects -- maybe a cut of the profits instead of an up-front fee.

By the way, I'm thinking of checking out Alive in Joburg (the District 9 is a remake of this short-film by Blomkamp). Or should I wait to see District 9 when it's out on DVD (the only movies I see in theatres now are Potter films, with the boys)? In other words, is there a big twist at the end that would be spoiled if I saw the short version?

SO, I went to see that little movie called Inglorious Basterds. I can finally say tha Tarantino is, in my books, the best Director Alive and thiw was the most fabolous 2h30 I've spent in a theatre in the last 5 years. Man this guy can make a chef d'oeuvre out of any genre.

I saw District nine. I dont know what to say. It was incredible. Epic. Every second was enjoyable. Best Movie of the year, possibly of the decade.

Holy Dung.

Yeah it was awesome. The key is to go into it with either no expectations or expecting to see the first movie of a series. Its a lot of plot development but I was into it from the first frame...
