District 9 and Star Trek XI

Spent the day with a couple of guys from work watching movies and eating junk food.

The movies we save were District 9 and Star Trek XI. Both were great science fiction movies but they are two very different movies. Star Trek is of course Star Trek – although it has now been rebooted in an alternate timeline. It has great characters, great oneliners, great action, and is very shiny. District 9 on the other hand is gritty and filmed in a documentary style. It has a lot to say about racism, fear of things we don’t understand, and big corporations’ utter lack of responsibility.

These are definitely movies worth watching.
