    The Anatomy Of District 9 The Anatomy Of District 9 Presentation Transcript

    • The Anatomy of “District 9”
      A spoiler-filled comparison of the new sci-fi flick to the movies it borrowed from.
    • The movie starts out all CNN, with talking-head interviews and TV news reports…
    • Humans go around to the poor, white trash aliens’ homes and try to evict them.
    • Propaganda signs are everywhere, like the government messages in the fascist satire “Starship Troopers.”
    • Also like “Starship Troopers,”the scientists experiment on aliens for military purposes. In Romero’s “Day of the Dead,” this brutality is more harrowing when the zombies start to exhibit human behavior. In “District 9,” it’s particularly disturbing when they turn on one of their own.
    • One human starts becoming an alien—vomiting, losing his teethand fingernails. His arms and eyes are next as his body slowly morphs.
    • As he travels into the militarized zone, he becomes the most valuable target around and multiple groups are after him.
    • At one point, he dons a big robotic suit to kick some ass.
    • In the end, all the stranded aliens wanted to do was go home.
    • By the way, I really liked it. A good movie is almost never completely original. It’s what you do with all the familiar parts that make it interesting.
