district 9

this movie sucked from beginning to end its a wast of time. the only parts that were good was when the main character teams up with this alien named Chris and he uses alien gun that were cool and a robot.i was really falling to sleep in the fisrt 5 min of it i give this movie a 4/10 but this movie makes you think are we alone? and this movie also has a good story

g.i.joe

this movie was great this movie was just a introduction so we know they will make more movie of it. it was cool how they introduce cobra at the end hes the same as the cartoon but he has a different mask that i think is just a prototype and how destro became destro. it had a great story and by the way when the ice was sinking it was because it had metal tubes in it and the cast was pretty good but some of the times they were a little off but it was all good i cant wait for the sequel. i give this movie 9/10

Wow...to each his own I guess. I was complete opposite on these two films. I nearly walked out of GI Joe. District 9 was one of the better films of the year, to me that as.

he's young dude, he knows not of the 80s classic
flames809 - 9/7/2009, 7:02 PM
della- i seen the 80s cartoon so i do know about the 80 i seen some cartoon of the 80's and who cares if im young because of all the young people g.i.Joe got the money it got every young person went to see g.i.Joe than d9

G.I. Joe was cool (though at times dumb and ridiculous), but ultimately i thought District 9 was better.
Stumblin - 9/8/2009, 8:28 AM
District 9 is also rated R which means it's more geared towards adult audience, no offense but not really meant for teens or that mentality.

Mind you I'm not one of those, "It's rated R! How could a 14 year old see this?!" Because I believe the ratings on movies are so overly p.c. controlled it's pointless. Regardless of that, it seems as though you're almost comparing the movies which are two completely different, one is a drama/action, the other is Bomb grade action. Just my observation.
Godl1ng - 9/8/2009, 10:22 AM
im 16, (automated ticket dispensors at amc) and i thought the total opposite, but we had this argument already on my review, so i'll leave it alone.
flames809 - 9/8/2009, 10:46 AM
stumblin- like R rated movies but i just didn't like this one and im not comparing the 2 im just saying my opinion
TheBumblingIdiot - 9/8/2009, 4:56 PM

CRITIC17 - 9/8/2009, 5:06 PM
District 9 ruled!!!!! G.I.Joe was good but could have been much better!!!!
flames809 - 9/8/2009, 5:35 PM
darkknight-how my review was as bad as yours? if only one person read your review
flames809 - 9/8/2009, 6:55 PM
anil-g.i.Joe had good acting and it was good that's why they making a Segundo movie 2 it and the cameo were good and u cant expect them to do everything the same as the cartoon/comic book and the actor were all good to each of there parts duke was good,baroness was good to, Scarlett was good to and this movie was an intro to cobra and the g.i.Joe so stop bitching about the movie its worthy of an Oscar so does d9 oh and g.i.Joe didn't get bad review neither did d9
Godl1ng - 9/8/2009, 7:14 PM
they're making a sequel to district 9 as well... and g.i.joe in no way deserves an oscar, i already figure that district 9 wont get any nods because that's just how the academy is, and they only like movies about gays (broke back mountain, milk). idc if you don't like district 9, but you can't possibly be so naive as to believe that gijoe is oscar worthy...

anil @ lol my words exactly
flames809 - 9/8/2009, 7:35 PM
yo godl im not naive i cant say i like g.i.Joe better than d9 with some1 bitching about it and i bet u g.i.joe is going to get an oscor
Godl1ng - 9/8/2009, 7:48 PM
LMAO ok... g.i. joe is going to win best movie, lead male Channing Tatum, supporting actor Marlon Wayans.... original score, wardrobe... new york transit will become clean and run smoothly, Shia Labeouf will stop playing a sarcastic teenager, and you will make a comment in grammatically correct English...
supermarioworldE - 9/8/2009, 10:40 PM
@flames, G.I. Joe winning an Oscar? lol! you're joking right?
TheBumblingIdiot - 9/8/2009, 11:49 PM
there only reading it so they can see how stuped ur and to talk shit
ecksmanfan - 9/9/2009, 12:20 AM
If GI Joe wins an Oscar, I'll shit in my hat and eat it for breakfast. I am open to everyone having their own opinion, but there comes a time when you need to be realistic. There is nothing in that film that is Oscar worthy...NOTHING! Sorry bub.
flames809 - 9/9/2009, 2:03 PM
god1-[frick] English im Spanish


supermarioworldE- no!!!

thedarkknight666- im stupied for like g.i.joe better than d9 cuz d9 sucked [frick] that movie

ecksmanfan- im just saying if it does ya will all bitch about it



ecksmanfan - 9/9/2009, 3:15 PM
You bet I'm gonna bitch if it does, because it is not an Oscar quality film. I'm not saying that Distrcit 9 will win any Oscar's by any means, but GI Joe won't either. By your statement, you are comparing GI Joe to such films as The Godfather, Saving Private Ryan, Unforgiven, American Beaty and Silence of the Lambs...These films are on an entirely different level.
flames809 - 9/9/2009, 5:01 PM
dude i know but i know what film will get oscar 7 pounds
ecksmanfan - 9/9/2009, 5:07 PM
Now THAT I will agree is a great show. However, it's not eligable, it came out last December, so it would have been eligible for last years awards.
flames809 - 9/9/2009, 7:14 PM
OK how about gamer,orphan,Alice in wonder land when it comes out,the box,new moon looks interesting,inception and that all i got that could get Oscars
ecksmanfan - 9/10/2009, 1:01 AM
I liked Orphan, still need to see The Gamer and am stoked about Alice in Wonderland, but again, none of them will win Oscars. I wish I knew what the members of "The Academy" looked for in Oscar winning films. Sometimes I see it, like with No Country for Old Men (an amazing film), but others I don't get what the big deal is (The Wrestler was good, but not great). Unfortunately, you will very seldom, if ever, see a horror movie or sci-fi movie win any awards. Of course there are exceptions, like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I think everyone would agree that The Dark Knight got the shaft last year. These types of movies just don't win awards. Who knows, now that they have changed the number of Best Picture nominees to ten instead of five, there may just be hope.

Out of curiosity, do you live in the US? I read above you are spanish???
TheBumblingIdiot - 9/10/2009, 1:05 AM
flame new moon looks like crape just like the first ALICE looks ok dont think they'll win any oscars
flames809 - 9/10/2009, 2:07 PM
ecksmanfan - live in new york
Betty - 9/10/2009, 7:04 PM
I just watched D9 and I gotta agree with flames809. It was only ok. The only interesting parts were the mech and his transformation into a grasshopper guy. I can't make out what they're sayin' most of the time. It seemed over-intense and not better because of it.

GiJoe I haven't seen. Channing Tatum, fart...
Betty - 9/10/2009, 7:05 PM
Good Review. You win a Cock-ass!
cockass
Look at him go!!
flames809 - 9/11/2009, 1:40 PM
thanx Betty u the only 1 that agrees with me and i win a Wat
Betty - 9/12/2009, 9:27 AM
It's kind of like a Trophy.
RorMachine - 9/12/2009, 10:38 AM
hahahaha, i really want that Cockass! But not for agreeing that D9 was boring and Gi Joe was a good movie, thats the sort of talk they used to burn people at the stake for.
flames809 - 9/12/2009, 11:57 AM
ror-OK
Godl1ng - 9/13/2009, 9:57 PM
flames, assuming gi joe is the best movie, and district 9 sucked (hypothetically) neither are going to get oscar nods simply because they are sci fi movies, and sci fi movies don't get nods unless they are E.T.
but even with out that going against it, G.I. Joe sucked, and District 9 was way better. if they were my children I would give all of my attention to District 9, and when District 9 did something bad, I'd take it out on G.I. Joe by beating it. I hate that movie more than any movie, except maybe G Force. nah, I'd rather watch G Force with my cousins again than to sit through 2 hours of Channing Tatum suck at acting. he should've stuck to dancing movies... stupid fairy. and am I the only person who didn't care that Brendan Fraser was in the movie? i hate him to. in fact, the world would get just a little bit smarter if the entire cast just died. including that director. accelerator suits... how dare he impose his own crappy screenplay onto the real American hero...
Betty - 9/14/2009, 9:18 AM
Godl1ng--lol, awesome.

I love the guy for standing his ground. You go flames809! That's why you got the cock-ass! For holding your own when everyone else is shitting on you.

I have to agree with him on D9. It was boring and their accents are so thick all I hear is glug, glug, glug. I need subtitles. I think only gamers could like this movie anyway.

I havent seen Gijoe because I hate Tatum.
supermarioworldE - 9/15/2009, 10:00 PM
@betty, "I haven't seen Gijoe because I hate Tatum"

Doesn't Everybody?
Betty - 9/17/2009, 6:48 PM
Man I hope so.
flames809 - 9/17/2009, 7:25 PM
well betty just watch g.Joe its good and Tatum aint that bad in it hes actually good for some parts of the movie
Maz36 - 9/19/2009, 12:54 PM
@flames So let me get this straight. You believe that a completely mediocre action flick like G.I. Joe is deserving of an Oscar. That it's the best of the best. That it's the cream of the crop. Sad thing is, you're wrong. In no way does the load of crap that is G.I. Joe deserve anything close to an Oscar, nor any type of award because it didn't accomplish a damn thing. I'll tell you why. Saying G.I. Joe deserves an Oscar is like saying the first Transformers deserved best picture. It's just absolutely absurd, and the Academy would laugh in your face if you ever suggested it.

Now I'm not saying that District 9 is going to win an Oscar, because it's not, simply due to the fact that it's a sci fi film. I'm just saying you're completely naive and out of your head if you seriously believe that G.I. Joe "deserves" an Oscar.
flames809 - 9/19/2009, 3:03 PM
Maz36@ is my thought and my review i could say what ever i want make your own and say what ever you want and g.i.Joe was good it was a introduction movie ok
Killik13 - 10/3/2009, 5:27 AM
@Flames I'm trying so hard to give you the benefit of the doubt, but it's like giving a tapeworm a break because "It's probably just lost".

What actual criteria are you judging these films on? Quality of script? Character development? Or just the amout of 'Splosions crammed into each scene? Ok, it might be entertaining to see a couple of dudes in robo-suits beat the feces out of each other or to see the Eiffel tower melt, but that's all these films will ever achieve. Cheap thrills. Films that deserve Oscars, films that will be remembered entertain by enthralling their audience by more satisfying and altogether skillful means. Films like the Godfather, The Shining, and this year District 9. How many sequels they procure or dollars they earn doesn't dictate quality, all it means is that there are too many people fascinated by hollow SFX. GI Joe got a sequel because it'll inevitably bring in the naive teen audience, yet to discover what the word taste means in relation to the art form cinema has the potential to be.

People like you are the reason there'll probably be 3 more Transformers films while skilled auteurs remain broke and jobless.
flames809 - 10/19/2009, 7:42 PM
Killik13- I LIKE TRANSFORMER 2 AND G.I.JOE AND THEY ARE MAKING A TRANSFORMER TO NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF US TEEN BUT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT SAW THE MOVIE AND DUDE District 9 SUCKED WHEN I SAW THE MOVIE I WAS FALLING TO SLEEP LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE IN THE THEATER WHEN I WAS SEEING D9 AND IT WAS MORE ADULTS THAN TEENS MY COUSIN SAW IT AN ADULT AND HE SAID IT SUCKED I KNOW A GUY THAT LIKE MOVIES LIKE THAT SAW IT DIDN'T EVEN LIKE IT. IT WAS JUST A WHACK MOVIE AND A LEAST PPL LIKE US HAVE GOOD TASTE IN MOVIE CAUSE D9 AINT CLOSE TO GODFATHER NOT EVEN CLOSE THAT MOVIE IS CLOSE TO BATMAN AND ROBIN.
