With three feature films to his credit, Neill Blomkamp has proven to have a distinct visual style and a flare for science fiction stories that, while told in futuristic settings, draw a lot of parallels to our world and our time.
I really like Blomkamp’s style of filmmaking. It’s visceral, engaging and meaningful, especially considering his genge preoccupations. I hope his next film has a bit more focus, so it can shine as brightly as his debut.
I’m not precisely sure what i just saw, but I know it was pretty damn good, in an extremely uncomfortable way.
This is a strong little film with a short runtime and an easy recommendation for me.
This is a solid thriller that does a lot of things right without doing anything remarkable.
Another day, another movie I should have seen in the proper theatrical format.
I think at the end of the day, the best word I could use to describe this is uneven.
With the array of jokes about alien genitals and anal probes, I’m sure plenty of people wrote this off as a one-note act, but it’s got a surprising amount of charm in its humor.
It’s great that something can function so well as satire and a standalone comedy in it’s own right, with a surprisingly affecting ending.
Carpenter created a masterful horror film that speaks to our inherent distrust of one another and our willingness to resort to violence when pressed into a confined, uncomfortable situation.
I wanted a fun, popcorn blockbuster in space and that’s exactly what I got.
Spielberg has always had a way with wowing an audience, and a lot of that dates back to this film, capturing the awe that I imagine we would all feel if we were ever able to confirm contact with an alien race.
There is no way around it, this is an episode of Black Mirror on the big screen. And it’s awesome.
