Stephen Hawking and District 9

Stephen Hawking is one of the best scientist in our world now. His recent feature in the Discovery channel sparks many interest around the world and yes, it's definitely worth paying attention to it than the endless fiasco of the stupid politicians in Malaysia.

And Hawkins is funny too. Besides warning us not to contact aliens because it might be dangerous, he quipped something about aliens appearance which to the effect of aliens not gonna look like Marilyn Monroe. Funny professor! Apparently Hawking love Monroe!

District 9 (2009)
Tagline : You are not welcomed here.

That prompted me to finally watch District 9, which had been in my collection for quite some time. And my verdict... fantastic! I really admire the creativity of the screenwriter and the director in the plot of the movie. And the special effects are special in the sense that it don't feels like special effect at all. A lot of undertone and subtext were being read on the premise of the movie touching issues such as discrimination and apartheid since the movie is based in South Africa.
Not to forget the subtext on the issue of weapon industry which coincidentally South Africa is also one of the big weapon producer.

Two thumbs up! Go watch it!!!!!!
