A very late review of District 9

Monday September 7th 2009

We know it’s a bit pointless reviewing a movie that’s already been out for four days but when the movie in question is this good, there’s never a bad time to sing its praises. While we’re at it, The Godfather is worth a watch as well.

District 9 is incredibly good. It makes exemplary use of documentary-style filming (suck on that Cloverfield, you illogical prick), it’s very very well directed and written, and has an incredible central performance from newcomer Sharlto Copley who apparently isn’t Spike Jonze even though they might as well be bloody twins.

It looks a fucking treat as well. I want this one on Blu-ray.
