So I’ve had 3 days to think about District 9… this was the best movie of the summer (period).

I’m not including any spoilers here, as I did a 2 week ‘media blackout’ prior to going to see the movie. Just go see this movie and you will see what I mean.
However I do suggest everyone go to the following site to watch Alive in Joburg:
