One of the most surprising hits of the summer has inspired a lot of discussion at the Criticker Forums. District 9 came out of nowhere with a bunch of unknown actors and immediately landed on the tentative versions of many Best Of 2009 lists. At Criticker, it’s gotten even more traffic than Tarantino’s long-awaited Inglourious Basterds.
The District 9 forum thread was started by user frederic_g54 at the beginning of July. From the very beginning, it’s a pretty contentious discussion and quickly dives into ideas like, “Is it valid to defend or rip films you’ve not yet seen?” (My response to that is definitely yes).
So whether or not you’ve seen the movie, feel free to join the discussion and contribute! The Criticker Forums can always use some fresh insights.
