    I never saw the end of district nine. I liked it. But it felt kind of disjointed how in the beginning it was faux documentary. With a film crew, but he eventually lost the film crew but they kept the filming technique.

    Which just felt weird.

    It really was.

    As it nears the end, the film becomes more and more an action movie. Not a bad thing, but notable.

    Can someone finish off the end of district nine?

    I think I got up to the point where
    They would either use the tube as fuel of to cure him.

    It honestly looked interesting, but it was on tv and started late and I had to go to bed.

    Christopher explains that he can only use the stuff as fuel, and it'll be three years before he could get back and Wikus is not happy.

    They fight, but then the command module is shot down by the police. Who are attacked by the gangs. Things get very violent.

    Eventually, Wikus gets a robot suit and lots of alien guns. Things get very violent.

    Christopher and his son leave the planet in the mothership, Wikus has a moment of redemption, the colonel is torn apart and eaten by prawns.

    There's a post script saying that the truth about the evil PMC was revealed, and the person who revealed it is now in jail for it. The aliens are being moved to a new holding facility, a shot hints that Wikus is still alive, but even more mutated (dropping a metal flower off for his wife), and people are interviewed about how they feel that the Prawns could very well come back and try to kill everyone for being dicks.

    Bad summary, but it's been a while.

    Cool thanks.

    Also thanks to everyone who listed movies, I've seen all of them all and liked them all.

    I suppose I was thinking something in Ridley Scott's style of gritty, thoughtfully integrated technology for science fiction settings (which is the main reason I am excited to see Prometheus, the set design looks amazing) but you reminded me of a bunch of really cool stuff.

    one that is not quite as good, but is decent enough is Pandorum

    it's one of those movies that is high-budget-for-a-low-budget, not widely released type sci fi movie

    it's got it's flaws, but it's pretty decent and is just something that is nice to see because it's more material in a genre you like

    and it has dennis quaid and Ben Foster! Ben Foster in stuff is always a good thing

    I never got around to seeing Inception. I wonder if it's on Netflix streaming or at one of the local Redbox kiosks.

    It's very possible that a Redbox might have it. I can't say for sure but I think I saw it at my local kiosk while I was browsing recently.

    My biggest hope for a Total Recall reboot is that we get a new photo of Druhim in a pink shirt.

    Moon was pretty great, I'm glad they revealed the spoiler early on and didn't make the whole movie about guessing what it was, because i totally guessed it right away.

    I was afraid they would do that but was relieved when they didn't.

    I really thought Primer nailed the existential terror I would associate with time travel if it were real.

    I liked Pandorum.

    I really like 12 Monkeys, but it's a film experience I find rad at every turn rather than uniquely unsettling.

    Source code is a movie that was good

    But could have been incredible if they had ended it literally five minutes earlier

  • FishmanFishman This is way beyond my remote concern of being condescending Registered User regular
    True story, I only read about Pandorum while flicking through a magazine in a medical clinic waiting room earlier today. I had never heard of it before then, but it was a kinda positive review that sounded at least vaguely interesting and potentially watchable, so I wondered why I hadn't heard of it over these forums.

    And lo, the same day, it gets mentioned twice.
