District 9

Thanks for a really intelligent discussion about the things that are wrong or if you prefer, the missed opportunities in Elysium to make it as smart as District 9. Rhea' s comment that Elysium is actually the US made me wonder, does anyone know or remember how District 9 was received in South Africa? (Since it was a film about apartheid). So... when are you guys covering District 9 in this podcast? Claire

Blomkamp says something interesting about the lead's race that relates to your conversation. It'll probably piss of Ricky even more.
