All of those hours in a B-52 and you never dropped any "F-Bombs"?I watched this movie for the first time last night and well.....I wish I wouldn't have spent the $19 on it. The movie was very interesting and told an ok story but the way it was acted disappointed me. By that, I mean this was a perfectly good story and the effects were good, however the flagrant use of the "F-bomb" (even in a hardly recognizable South African accent) distracted from the story. :dark:
I won't go into the plot as I don't want to give it away; however, I will say that you can expect a very good movie, what you'd expect from Peter Jackson after LOTRs. It is a compelling story about segregation and oppression. You could take any minority in the world and make them the "Prawns". The director does a very good job of showing how the oppressed no longer stay the victims over time, but how the relationship becomes more of a mutual exploitation by both sides.
This is a great story I'd love to share with my kids, however, I just can't get past the gratuitous language. Even the blood and guts isn't that bad.......
Bottom line for me is that if I had to do it over, I'd wait for it to come on cable.
You are kidding, right?
I haven't seen District 9, but will wait.
Mk82, Mk83, Mk84, Mk62 (QuickStrike), Mk117, BDU 48, CBU87, CBU89, GBU-12,, GBU10, CALCM, ALCM, ACM, AGM 142, JDAM, B-61 ( BDU38, not in anger :y: ).........and a few F-Bombs...but in a B-52, no one can hear you scream.....All of those hours in a B-52 and you never dropped any "F-Bombs"?
That all depends. I am a movie buff and collector I have 1000+ dvd's and just starting blu ray. to me it was well worth buying. if you are not a collector than I might agree dont go out of your way to buy it..I heard good things, so I bought it on Blue-ray. IMO, worth seeing, but NOT worth buying...
Save you dough, dont buy it. Go to Redbox and rent it for a buck...
Because they needed to test the planet to see if there was master bug, a "brain bug' running the show.The story line doesn't make sense at times. If they are occupying the planet, nuke it. Why send it ground forces?
In that case, I waiting till it a dollar at the Red Box, and then I will still be over paying.
But that would have resulted in a rather boring movie (and book). One of the lines that I laughed at in "Independence Day" was where the president stated he was reluctant to use nukes against the aliens because of the collateral damage. The aliens were wiping out entire cities in seconds and he's worried about collateral damage? Bottom line is that many sci-fi films have illogical components to permit action film elements. "Willing suspension of disbelief" is required by (too) many films.The story line doesn't make sense at times. If they are occupying the planet, nuke it. Why send it ground forces?
It'll probably be out three years from the release of the first film. Remember what Christopher Johnson said (that's all I'll say to avoid any spoilers).I liked it a lot, but it was a bit too intense for my wife. It seems like the story ended rather abruptly... Is the sequel being filmed yet?
So just nuke the planet and see what crawls out afterwords. Also, why not just deflect the asteroids sent to Earth? I enjoyed the film, but I suspend disbelief when needed, something that is usually needed with action films.Because they needed to test the planet to see if there was master bug, a "brain bug' running the show.
I liked it. It's not your typical sci-fi film plot where the aliens are the powerful, technologically advanced bad guys.The IMDb rates it at 8.4, which is very high, especially considering that it really doesn't have any well-known actors.
I might just have to get this one...
Ditto, the movie was pretty good in my opinion. I got this one and Terminator Salvation, and it far beat T.S. in to the dirt, as T.S. stunk!I liked it. It's not your typical sci-fi film plot where the aliens are the powerful, technologically advanced bad guys.
