    What do you think of these two films?

    I've seen District 9 a couple of times and i think it's a great movie. I think one reason is because it's not from Hollywood, plus it's a great story.

    I just finished watching Chappie for the first time about 10 minutes ago and i loved it. The film is heartwarming and Chappie is such a lovely character. Plus i really fancy the little blonde South African actress in it!

    Chappie was pretty decent I thought, Rotten Tomatoes has it at 32% which is bullshit

    I liked District 9, but hated Chappie.
    The Chappie character was fine, but the other cast just annoyed the shit out of me.

    I enjoyed District 9.

    I thought Chappie was not a good movie. The reviews were pretty poor in general as well. A handful of people like it though.

    I have never been able to watch D9 all the way through because it struck me that I hate that accent. Just fucking hate listening to it.

    Havent seen chappie but district 9 was amazing. Always surprised at the hate the film can get on this forum. It's fantastic all around from the script to the casting to the visuals IMO

    District 9 had so much potential, but was incredibly disappointing.

    The interrogation trailer had me very interested, but wasn't even in the movie.

    What I thought was going to be a unique and thought provoking film, just turned into some stupid action flick. Big let down. Me and my two friends left the movie with an incredibly "meh" feeling about it, overall.

    Chappie I began watching on a stream but didn't bother to finish.

    I have to spend more time in this place educating you lonely gay nerds on what truly great cinema is. No wonder none of you get laid.
