District 9

District 9 ★★★½

Sci fi has never been my cup of time always, but I liked the different take this one had. The found footage style makes this alien movie standout from the crowd, and it’s great visual effects and performances aide it a lot. I do feel it’s messages don’t always get home, and at times it’s themes are lost. The graphic nature behind much of it is on horror movie level and adds a little more to it. Overall, it’s an enjoyable film that’s different but would’ve benefitted from flushing out it’s premise a bit more.
