Humans Only!

This past Friday, a new SciFi movie called District 9 opened to theaters. I have to say, it's one of the better SciFi films that I've seen this summer, right up there with Duncan Jone's Moon.

The plot, for those unaware, is about an MNU employee who is infected with an alien substance and is forced to go on the run. 20 years earlier, an alien ship arrived over South Africa, where a couple million aliens were found, dying and ill. They were then relocated to District 9, where they came under control of Multinational United, a security firm.

In short, the film is modern, interesting and thoughtful. My full review can be found here.

The soundtrack is also quite good, and I'd recommend checking it out.
