About this comic

The movie really had an impact on me. So much so that I could not let a week go without at least one comic about it.

    I agree with you, the movie had a huge impact on me too, this was one of the best I’ve seen in a while… glad to see a comic up about it on extralife already! =D

  2. I was totally expecting a mime joke.

    District 9 is the most thought-provoking movie for me since Linklater’s Waking Life.

    The only sci-fi movie I liked better and made me think this year more was Moon. D-9 was great though, especially the first half and the gibs.

  4. I hope you talk about it on ELR, really curious to hear your in depth opinion.

    You know the movies about racism, right?

  6. MikeS says:

    Yes, I know the movie is about racism… or is it Speciesism?

      Room is one of a kind gathering in Taipei. It is also a new meeomvnt now to have amateurs sharing what they are passionate about. I co-sponsored this event with my friend, Ayesha, so we can create a space where everyone is in love with poetry, play, music and body meeomvnt. Can you send your email address to me so I can put you in my mailing list for this event? The seat is limited so I am very selective in who can most benefit from this kind of creative environment. It is a multi-language gathering. You will meet many creative people from different parts of the world. As you know from this blog, one of my goals is to encourage our young people to embrace different cultures so they will be more humble when dealing with things they don’t know. Again, English is just a tool. Please sharpen this tool so you can reach out to the world and become a global citizen.I am so proud of you for taking the steps to get to know who you really are. By expanding your comfort zone ( as cliche as it sounds ), you will realize that you are what you do, not just want you think. Happy Chinese New YearPing

      “..who cared more about health care costs than mtraiily pursuits or unemployment..”Just wondering what this sentence is alluding to. Also, the current bills are so far from perfect and yes, some specialties and more affluent will get pissed….but there was nothing on the table with regard to healthcare reform when we were all at peace with a huge surplus.

    You liked it? It was way too long it had short snipets of any sort of real action, the close up on every face hid the background of the sets. The shaky camera and bad acting killed the mood. Turn it into a documentry about a snivling kiss ass with seriotypical americanized attitude towards other people and you have a movie who’s sole purpose is to rethink the wall between the US and Canada and Mexico.

    Yes it has an interesting point, but seriously the movie was horrible to pay $12 for. I would have preferred to watch alone in the dark again. Okay … maybe not that bad.

    But the jumping plot points and the constant “Oh hey we could throw this idea into the movie too” I can see this movie showing up on science theatre 5000.

    small note: The film was over blurred, the sound cut out repeatedly and the whole movie was jittery in the theatre I saw it at. I complained and got my money back so my opinion is probably biased since I never got “into” the movie as I was probably supposed to.

    i could relate to the movie very well. it was excellent. especially since i have family living on indian reservations who have gone through.. well similar but not quite situations.

      brilliant Wes. I’ll bet they figure out after the 2010 elceitons.re: commie pinko outfit anonymous post, most physicians agree there waste in the system and agree with reasonable change. after the 2010 medicare cuts, I think our senior citizens will be questioning “reasonable” as all the rural cardiology practices close because of the overnight 30% cut in reimbursement. Make sure you stay healthy.

    So Mime=Hobo? That’s an insult to the art of being a Hobo! (That was my 4th grade Halloween Costume… Hobo. Not Mime. 5th grade was me missing half a face. Pretty neat, though some people thought it was a bit much for grade school. Wait. What were we talking about?)

    I love when people like PurrNak post ranting, off-topic comments fraught with obvious spelling errors (i.e. snivling, seriotypical, who’s). It says a lot about the poster, no?
