Hey_

Been following Neil Blomkamp for some time now.

His work on the "yellow" adicolor commercial is the dopeness. Not to mention the Halo shorts.

Hopefully this movie we'll be critically received well, and then it'll lead to a resurgence of interest in his directing the Halo movie.

saw the preview at the movies last night, but when the alien was talking it had no subtitles and its face was blurred. looks like it has potential...

It looks really intriguing. I like how the alien interaction isn't sensationalized. If that's true throughout, I'm really interested.

Peter Jackson does good work, I think he can pull this off.

The preview is


But I've been fooled before. Easy to make 2 minutes look great, much tougher to make 2 hours work.

I'll be lookin for this when it comes out.

I think that was their intention - and they did it well.

It was only when the black guy came on and said something about they should just go home I was like "what?" and then it started to make sense.
