    District 9

    I saw it last night, and it's a GREAT movie. It's the kind of action movie I like - one with a plot, and characters you care about, so when the explosions and shooting starts happening, you actually care who wins. It's really brilliant - my bf and I left the theater talking about what the sequel might be Anyone else seen it yet? I'm just so excited to have seen a GOOD action movie - they're few and far between lately.

    Next: Inglourious Basterds.
    There is security in fearlessness.

    Inglourious Basterds is very good also

    I saw that movie with a friend of mine from South Africa. He was really looking forward to watching that movie because it is partially based on a true story. He was telling me that in SA they actually did have districts set up which were filled with Black people and non-white immigrants. His parents even grew up in an area called district 6.

    Overall he enjoyed the movie and so did I, but it was hard to watch at times knowing that **** like that actually happened (ie how they were treated inside those camps).

    Just for the record . Before 1994 that was how it went *cho* and maybe not even all the time . Post 1994 , got a new goverment , and now the are skrewing us ( white )
    Raccism , called affirmative action .

    Just for the record , haven't seen the movie yet . Going tommorow
    So softly , so perfect , seemingly sleepingly
    But for you , sleep , forever will do
    Wish only to fight the urge
    Beaten senselessly for your basic need
    Sunken eyes around me ,
    sunken spirits is what I see
    Children , old beyond their day
