Behind the times as usual
Given that I never get to the pictures, refuse to listen to what is hot and trendy and only buy the DVDs when they are at knockdown prices, I would be possibly the worlds slowest movie reviewer.
Yesterday I finally got a couple of hours between jobs and got to watch the copy of District 9 that I brought about a month ago.
Something quite fresh and new and not a freaking remake or sequel.
Lots of good splatter and effects- not for the kiddies like the R16 rating implies.
I hate to spoil a story by actually giving away any details (plus that would involve an effort on my part) so I won't.
It's a good, gritty fast paced action sci-fi- think shades of ET and Blackhawk Down crossed with Naked Lunch!
Well worth the $15 buck at the red shed and buying a copy might get Peter Jackson nearing to affording a local hanger for his new jet!
