District 9

This movie is just like Independence Day starring The Fresh Price but instead of the aliens destroying everything their spaceship breaks down, over Johannesburg, none the less. The "prawns" get forced into ghettos and eat garbage and all that. They are called "prawns" because they look like walking prawns. simple enough. This move didn't do it for me. It was Independence Day, Alien VS Predator II and Roots in one total post-produced Hollywood race-peace nonsense. I'm all for ending apartheid wherever it's still existing, but why the heavy handed skifee shmaltz-fest? I just don't know.
