“District 9” – Self-Portrait of Human

D9Frankly speaking, before I watched “District 9″, I thought I was going to see another science fiction fast food movie. But I am wrong, after watching it, I feel confused and repressed. The movie use a very real story telling mode to make you believe all of it is real and true just as it happen on Earth. And Just a story about the conflict between the human and aliens, and the tragedy happen on Wikus, the leading role.
Maybe you would think that the aliens are the core of this movie. But, I don’t think so. Greedy, selfish, hardhearted, dishonest… all the adj. of that kinds could be found on our human in this movie. Even Wikus, the leading role. At the beginning, he is also one of the people with those adj. mentioned above. The humanity to the alien is so weak in front of the greed of human. In order to protect their own benefit and fetch the power from the aliens, the human become the worst specie in the world.
At the end of the story, Wikus finally knows the real faces of the people for whom he work. And he fight with his last strength to help his alien friends back to the alien mothership.
The movie didn’t tell how is Wikus after that. Maybe he believe that the alien would keep the words:”I will come back, I promise.”. So he fight for them. But obviously this isn’t the reason he fight with his life. He knows something, knowing what he should do, whom he should help and whom he should fight again. All because he is human in his heart.

He is turning into alien shape step by step. But his is more and more human with no doubt. The last scene is a alien who is make a rose with some iron sheets from the trash. We all know that it’s Wikus, who has changed int to a alien completely cries his best to tell his wife that he still loves her.

    Wikus loved her wife who is the only one reason for him to live after infection, in order to go back to his wife, he had done everything he could. I think the aliens will come back and save him in District 9 II.

    I don’t think so… If the story goes as you wish, it would be just anther American happening ending movie. Tragedy is good to make us think deeply. And I prefer the beauty of the incompletes

    if no , would you opt the professional and pay for the service.

    However, if you are the only earning member of your family and is planning
    to quit your job to make money online, then it’s altogether a different scenario.
    There are many avid gamers out there, I often wonder why many of them have not done
    this yet. Remember, play FAIRLY and HONESTLY
    and this will work.

  8. I just developed a a software program that would instantly scrape applicable contents of a subject
    (or the topic yuor web blog is focused on) within the google and bing to put together massive 100% copyscrape-passed subject matter.
    Have you been considering to learn it?
