Dan O'Neill90 - District 9 has some very obvious plot holes, but is brings up many good points, and will leave you emotionally distraught with enough action to keep you on your seat amazed at how real it looks.

Bryan Lienesch82 - Down-to-earth and realistic in its approach while also fully-engrossing as a science fiction story. The fact that this movie came out of an often overlooked genre to be nominated for Best Film is not a mistake.
