Although it was a pretty low priority on my summer-movies-list, I saw District 9 last night. A beautifully filmed and tastefully conceived plot, D9 is one of the best science fiction films of the past few years. Highly recommended.
Below is the 2005 short film that backed the feature length’s green light.
With Battlestar Galactica in its final season, I’m reminded of what a fanboy i really am. Science Fiction is ok in my book. I don’t care about monsters or virus attacks or dinocrocs or mansquitos. I like simple things: Robots and spaceships. And Battlestar gives me a healthy dose of both. With our over marketed society, we are given a host of products to buy. Its easy to resist the BSG toaster, or the Starbuck poster, because it show itself is beautiful and these sad imitations would pale in the safety-paper world of BSG. I mean, there is always the Propworx online sale of props from the show. Which are hard enough to resist. But Battlestar coffee mug? Yes please. [buy]
