Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems.
In 1982, a massive star ship bearing a bedraggled alien population, nicknamed "The Prawns," appeared over Johannesburg, South Africa. Twenty-eight years later, the initial welcome by the human population has faded. The refugee camp where the aliens were located has deteriorated into a militarized ghetto called District 9, where they are confined and exploited in squalor. In 2010, the munitions corporation, Multi-National United, is contracted to forcibly evict the population with operative Wikus van der Merwe in charge. In this operation, Wikus is exposed to a strange alien chemical and must rely on the help of his only two new 'Prawn' friends. Written by

I attended a promotional screening for this with a pretty good attitude
towards all the hype that surrounded it. It was not what I expected, it
was much better.
Not only were the CGI top notch, but the narrative is driven through a
believable plot. Watching this film made me believe that a situation as
such had occurred on Earth, and therefore the far fetched notion of an
extra terrestrial race visiting us becomes so close to a reality
through a story that is so realistically depicted.
District 9 is a beautifully crafted film which shows signs of great
promise for being around for a while, a subject talked about by many
people. Can't wait to watch this again with my friends = )
