One of those movies it's easy to criticize before you see it. It looks pretty ridiculous and done before (to death).

But, surprisingly, it was really good. Directed by Peter Jackson, you will find yourself puzzling over some of the plot and character points, while grasping the broader theme. And yes, it is about aliens. But it's a pretty fresh and realistic look, actually, of what might happen if aliens landed on earth.

So, we ended up seeing it with a friend from my old college who has just moved to NYC for med school, and she was talking about this movie that someone said looked really good. Turns out, it was "9," Tim Burton's movie to be released next month, but she didn't realize this until after we bought the tickets.

To make a long story short, it was an enjoyable experience and (o hypocrite of hypocrites) it is much better than how Inglorious Basterds looks.

I like how he has sex with the aliens.

I watched the movie thinking how stupid/stubborn they are. If i was an alien/slave/freak, i'd kill myself instead of enduring all the pain/misery/embarassment. If i was the government, i'd kill them all and not worry about discrimination, high crime rates, etc.

Umm. But he didn't have sex with the aliens...that was the whole point.

I think the South Africa setting was probably supposed to say something about apartheid. Because, that was the attitude of some then too...well, if we just cut off their testicles and euthanize the even-more-worthless ones, we won't have to worry about discrimination, high crime rates, etc.
