If you haven't seen it ... GO NOW!

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 August 31 2009 11:44 PM EDT

Agree.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] August 31 2009 11:45 PM EDT

I still wanna see this, Inglorious Basterds, Gamer (this Friday), and Matt Damons new movie, The Informant...

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 31 2009 11:47 PM EDT

Inglorious was great... I'm now angry I saw it because tonight could have been the second time I saw D9

DoS [Battle Royale] August 31 2009 11:49 PM EDT

D9 is awesome.

Lord Bob August 31 2009 11:54 PM EDT

"D9 is awesome."

Correct.

Rawr September 1 2009 12:03 AM EDT

""D9 is awesome."

Correct."

Agreed.

Godpanda September 1 2009 12:03 AM EDT

It really is.

Daz September 1 2009 12:09 AM EDT

"""D9 is awesome."

Correct."

Agreed."

QFT

Rawr September 1 2009 12:11 AM EDT

You didn't like it Daz?

DoS [Battle Royale] September 1 2009 12:13 AM EDT

I'm assuming he means quoting for truth ;)

Daz September 1 2009 12:13 AM EDT

QFT = Quoted for Truth

Rawr September 1 2009 12:17 AM EDT

Oh. I thought it was the other QFT...

Lord Bob September 1 2009 12:39 AM EDT

What's the other QFT?

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] September 1 2009 2:50 AM EDT

I've seen both and recommend them, but rather then simply "chiming in" which doesn't realy help anyone here on deciding whether or not to see it, I'll give you a bit of a review.

Inglourious Basterds - This is a great Tarentino flick, interesting mix of unique camera-work along with a set of memorable characters. The gore was on par with a Sam Raimi film. The historically important characters are rather forgettable, but the movie has some very satisfying moments.

District 9 - Not a standard alien/scifi flick. The scifi element of this movie is definitely not used as an excuse to show flashy effects. You might even care about the characters. Very satisfying for scifi fans, solid story, and bit of political intrigue.

Cube September 1 2009 2:51 AM EDT

Other one isn't PG.

Haven't seen D9 yet, but it's going to be hard to beat Inglourious for me.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 1 2009 2:53 AM EDT

I think I'll go see D9 now. ;) Caught the trailer when going to see something else and though /meh.

I'd like to add a film (that got slated by the critics) that I really enjoyed recently as well. Push. ;)

kevlar September 1 2009 3:36 AM EDT

I want to see this movie. I also was interested in Push after seeing the preview.

"""D9 is awesome."

Correct."

Agreed."

Absolutely

iBananco [Blue Army] September 1 2009 4:21 AM EDT

The beginning of D9 was excellent, but the end just felt like any other generic action flick.

Godpanda September 1 2009 5:56 AM EDT

That was hardly a generic ending. Just because the good guy gets a tiny shred of a victory doesn't automatically make it cliche. At least not necessarily in a bad way.

Lord Bob September 1 2009 6:10 PM EDT

The real District 9: http://www.newsweek.com/id/213805

Almaisky September 1 2009 11:37 PM EDT

I think I might go see it. Is it scary/really gruesome in any way? I don't really like watching those kinds of movies.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 2 2009 12:15 AM EDT

It is both thrillingly scary (not horror scary) and gruesome, however I think it's worth the uncomfortable moments

PearsonTritonRaveshaw September 2 2009 12:52 AM EDT

I'm throwing a party of sorts this weekend so I'll work it into the schedule =)

AdminG Beee January 12 2010 2:32 PM EST

Without doubt the worst film I can remember seeing.
In fairness though I've probably managed to forget the other really bad ones as I'm sure I'll forget this one in due course.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 January 12 2010 3:27 PM EST

Double foul GB! Using admin powers to post, AND not liking D9.
