Did anyone else see District 9? If so, what did you think? It wasn't what I was expecting but I was surprised at how interesting I found it and how much I liked it. I was also surprised to learn that it "only" cost 30 million dollars to make when it looked much like any 100 million dollar movie.
I've seen it a couple of times now. It is a pretty fantastic movie, definitely one of my favorites from last year. Sharlto Copley was great in it, especially as it was pretty much the first movie he's ever been in and he apparently ad-libbed all or most of his lines. I want to see that "Alive in Joburg" short film that the movie was based off of.
I didn't realize it was based on another short film. Please let me know if and where you find it. I read somewhere that they were discussing a sequel, "District 10". Who knows if it was only a rumor, though.
