I'm always looking for new good SciFi and District 9 was just that. Its kind of a ripoff of Alien Nation and Halflife 2, but who gives a damn. It was done very well and had an interesting thing going with its Mockumentary style of filming and cool set design. Apparently it was made on a small budget but I couldn't tell, the concept art and special effects were spot on. I think the key these days to good special FX is slashing the budget in half, that way the director realizes he has to have a good story and good cinematography. This movie was everything Transformers 2 (worst movie of all time) was not.
Also just saw Surrogates, which, while not being good, was enjoyable and had some potential. Almost everything was done well, but I guess the problem was I didn't care about the main characters. Cool movie anyway.
Inglorious Bastards is the best thing I've seen this year. Quintin Tarantino is magic with dialogue, jokes, and raging violence. This movie might be as good as Pulp Fiction, but I got to see it a few more times. I can usually tell when a movie is classic by the 4th viewing.
