I loved it as an action movie. Not sure if they were trying to pitch me on tolerance or something, but that's cool too.

Haven't seen Chappie but will probably watch it since Die Antwood is in it.

Haven't seen Chappie but will probably watch it since Die Antwood is in it.

That's what I thought until i saw the reviews. Now I'm holding off to not ruin Die Antwoord.

Holding off?

trying to pitch me on tolerance or something

It was brilliant for that. It was shot in South Africa by South Africaners.

Elysium and Chappie were good too, though not quite as good.

I really liked District 9, and had given up on a sequel. Great news!

How would I see something that doesn't yet exist?

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

District 9 exists.

District 10 is in development.

Ah I misread too fast. I missed your "d" in "liked".

I liked that movie very much. I heard some say it would be about the african apartheid, but for me it was a movie about speciesism.

I ever thought that a sequel to this movie could eventually ruin the massage for me. The end of District 9 was just perfect.

What if there's a happy ending?

Way too unrealistic.
