District 9 viral campaign is kinda cool.

Caustically optimistic I am, Brother Metal.

I was fighting the ague last night, watching Breach* at one in the morning when I saw the previews. Director is visual effects and short documentary guy? Maybe that's a good thing.

*Who knew how good that would be at one in the morning on USA network. Good spy flick.

District 9 is what the Halo movie could have been.

Of course I'm going to see it

I saw the trailer the other night. I'll wait for the reviews before seeing it - this is one of those movies that could either be terrific or awful. I couldn't tell from the trailer.

Here's hoping it's good.

If you plan to watch, check out the related sites for some neat back story. The non-humans are fed cattle feed is one tid bit for example.


MNU Spreads Lies

Christopher also has a twitter feed. It's kind of uneventful though. "Once MNU registers you, your life is not your own." and so forth. He is good about answering tweets however.

Overall, I think it is fairly well done.

Best. Movie. Of. The. Summer.

Fwiw, Jackson provided his F/X team for the movie.

Huh, honestly I thought more would be excited for this movie with its particular premise. I saw it today and will let it settle in a bit. I think most will enjoy it a little or a lot.

Be warned, this baby was shot in 1.85:1. Some might wish to sit a row or two back from usual.

I agree about the marketing campaign. I first say the benches 4-5 months ago and this is the ONLY time I've ever gone to a website written on a bus bench, just to figure out what they're all about. Very good job done by the marketing team.
