So, About District 9

This was our conversation as we left the theater a little while ago:

Scott: That was an awesome movie! But why did they set it in South Africa?
Me: Um, because it was a South African film about frikkin' apartheid???
Scott: ...Ohhhh.

That's my llama. Seriously though, THIS is why I love science fiction. Because you can have fucked up racist people doing the wrong thing every damn time. Because some times, just some times, people start to realize that everything is fucked up, and they do the right thing almost despite themselves. And the only way you can ever say that properly is, frankly, using bugs and UFOs.

So go see this film. But maybe see it before Ponyo, because you'll need an upper after.
