District 9

The talk of the town today is known as District 9. And apparently all over America and Europe the Movie is boasted as the best sci-fi movie of all time. They even say it is so good that the film will launch Neill Blomkamp into sci-fi stardom, on par with George Lucas and the Wachowski Brothers (from the Matrix).

The plot:
Aliens were found to be landed in Johburg, everybody waited for technology or a massive fight but nothing happened (DUM DUM DUM!). The aliens were ultimately housed in a government camp inside Johannesburg. The overcrowding and militarization eventually turned the area into a slum known as District 9, and a massive black market was established between the aliens and a group of Nigerians.

Sounds like trouble. One of the main characters is called Wikus van der Merwe, lol cant wait to hear the accent. All and all it seems like a very good movie and everybody is ranting and raving about it.

If i can give some tourists from overseas some advise, don't try to visit the real District 9 in South Africa, there are no aliens and your probably not gonna keep the clothes on your back. Its not a tourist destination :P

All and all go check it out, you might just love it :)
