Sara Vilkomerson of The New York Observer wrote, "District 9 is the most exciting science fiction movie to come along in ages; definitely the most thrilling film of the summer; and quite possibly the best film I've seen all year." Christy Lemire from the Associated Press was impressed by the plot and thematic content, claiming that "District 9 has the aesthetic trappings of science fiction but it's really more of a character drama, an examination of how a man responds when he's forced to confront his identity during extraordinary circumstances." Entertainment Weekly's Lisa Schwarzbaum described it as "... madly original, cheekily political, [and] altogether exciting..."
Nigeria's Information Minister Dora Akunyili asked movie cinemas around the country to either ban the film or edit out specific references to the country because of the film's negative depiction of the Nigerian characters as criminals and cannibals. Letters of complaint were sent to the producer and distributor of the film demanding an apology. She also said the gang leader Obesandjo is almost identical in spelling and pronunciation to the surname of former president Olusegun Obasanjo. The film was later banned in Nigeria; the Nigerian Film and Video Censors Board was asked to prevent cinemas from showing the film and also to confiscate it.
On 1 August 2009, two weeks before District 9 was released to cinemas, Neill Blomkamp hinted that he intended to make a sequel if the film was successful enough. During an interview on the Rude Awakening 94.7 Highveld Stereo breakfast radio show, he alluded to it, saying "There probably will be." Nevertheless, he revealed that his next project is unrelated to the District 9 universe.In an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Blomkamp stated that he was "totally" hoping for a follow-up: "I haven't thought of a story yet but if people want to see another one, I'd love to do it."Blomkamp has posed the possibility of the next movie in the series being a prequel.In an interview with Empire magazine posted on 28 April 2010, Sharlto Copley suggested that a follow-up, while very likely, would be about two years away, given his and Neill Blomkamp's current commitments.
You also probably know that "Avatar," a favorite for the Best Picture Oscar, is the highest-grossing movie of all time. One might assume that "Avatar" would also be the most popular among illegal downloaders. Not so. According to TorrentFreak, the sci-fi flick "District 9" saw upwards of 12,600,000 downloads in 2009, compared to 11,326,000 for "Avatar," and somewhere near 8 million for "Hurt Locker."
One simple explanation for the performance of "Avatar" is that James Cameron's movie was meant to be seen in 3-D, with 3-D glasses, amid a crowd of fellow movie-goers. And it's pretty hard to watch "Avatar" in 3-D from your laptop. Here's another possibility: "District 9" was the quintessential word-of-mouth flick. It was made relatively cheaply, and it took off slowly. It didn't have the same market penetration as "Avatar."
I explore the relation between Neill Blomkamp's science fictional District 9 and Derrida's philosophy in the light of South African history. My aim is to show that this film tells the story of the twenty-first century migrant crisis in Johannesburg, exploring past, actual, or future xenophobic/racist experiences and events, especially those of apartheid and of possible future systems of segregation anticipated in the movie. While Blomkamp was filming District 9 in Johannesburg in 2008, the logic of apartheid was reactivated during a migrant crisis, proving that the ghosts of the past continue to haunt the country. Many South-African natives were hostile to newcomers from Zimbabwe in search of job opportunities and arriving by the thousands every month. I use Derrida's notion of spectrality to shed a new light on the dialectical construction of historical temporality in Blomkamp's aesthetics. On the same subject of history, I unveil the allegorical dimension of the two main characters in District 9, Christopher Johnson and Wikus van der Merwe, to show how their destiny echoes those of the South African freedom fighters, thus telling implicitly the story of this country. They propose a solution to a "3.0 version" of apartheid possibly in the making. I finally show that xenophobia transcends eras, borders, and races in District 9, as an ultimate lesson from Blomkamp to avoid errors of the past.

"You are not welcome here.".Aliens land in South Africa and have no way home. Years later after living in a slum and wearing out their welcome the "Non-Humans" are being moved to a new tent city overseen by Multi-National United (MNU). The movie follows an MNU employee tasked with leading the relocation and his relationship with one of the alien leaders.
"It is a representation of the old South Africa, you know, like the apartheid state," Hoveni says. "Whites running the police state, and black people living in slums. Just the whole set-up in the movie, it reminded me of the apartheid era."
I loved this movie, it had a good mix of comedy, sci-fi, probably falls in my top 20. Sculpted in Blender, painted with acrylics.Antenna I used unused scraps of filament, that was the plan. I didn't want to try and print antenna it just wouldn't work, so I made it without and put holes for the filament. Just melt the ends and push them in, they will form a ball and create their own ball joint (see photo) they stay inside and you can position the antenna wherever you like!I had a tough time separating the supports in the mouth, so after my print I cut the front off so you can print it separately, trust me you will thank me when you clean it up - there isn't many supports this way. There is an internal column to support the inside of the mouth, but you can print this at 0% infill, I did, just use 2 shells.
There are also several characters seen in the movie that have no correlating symbol in the font set. It is possible and likely that the non-human alphabet is longer than 26 letters, and that the font available to download is an abbreviation of the alphabet designed to parallel the human Roman alphabet, whether or not it's actually accurate. 2b1af7f3a8
