Those are technically off-stage facts, so they don't spoil anything about the film.

Oh, I wasn't referring to any recent post in particular.

Was that supposed to be relevant to the topic in any way?

Out of 10, what would you guys give this movie and why?

Check my post.
Oh, and a 9.5/10 for the film. Really filled a lot of expectations, and the ending was very cool.

PS:  Don't act all smart-assy "you didn't read my post right" if the post was edited recently and when the person made the post it wasn't in the state it was after the edit.

To be on-topic, what exactly kind of "expectations" did you have?

Sorry, though I wasn't trying to be smart-assy. Sorry again If I did.
OT:  Well, I was hyping for the film after watching Alive in Jorburg in early January, and I followed some of the marketing.
I wanted to see a film that was different from the Usual mainstream Sci-Fi we get, and District 9 filled the mark :) It did turn out a bit different than I imagined, but in a good way..

But that implys that there aren't any racist people in america or england.

The whole point of the film is that it's an allegory of the Aparthied; it's like a South African Animal Farm. Yes, there are racists in America and Britian, but we didn't have "White Only" signs in the 70's and 80's or ban mixed marriages. The Prawns simply appeared at the wrong time at the wrong place.
Yea you had them in the fifties and sixties, making it much better...
I think a country like america would have blown them up and stolen the technology...
China would ally with them to get their technology,
same for europe.
Russia would probably use them to infiltrate nations...

No seriously if they were in america they would just do the same but wouldnt even let them get to the public... telling them that there were no aliens or some s*** like that
OK, both of you die and let us know what happens.

I don't think you can do that when the ship is hovering over a major city, not without outlawing looking up.  Can't really blow them up either, it would cause massive collateral damage, in addition to an international incident that would put us in opposition to most of the world.

Russia would probably use them to infiltrate nations...
Wait.  What?  How...  How does that even work?  They would be inferior to any human spy by their appearance and inability to speak human languages alone, and that's assuming you can convince them to work for you and get them into another nation.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

If we assume that they did instead stop over New York for example like Neo said I can't see them covering up the fact that for 20 years a giant alien mother ship is hovering over the biggest city on Earth. It was 2 weeks of the ship sitting there before humans even tried getting into the ship. They can't exactly cover up that the government is relocating 1,000,000 prawns off the ship either.

Just saw this film. It was great.

I think TF2 desensitised me to the people blowing up in a mist of blood...

well i didnt mean infiltrate in a spy sense, more in a sense that theyd breed them and then drop them in other countries to get on their nerves
