Gravity weapons, alien politics, a funny looking English guy- what more could you want from a Sci Fi film? District 9 released when it was still really cool put PETER JACKSON on your poster (even though he only produced it). Yet, this film about aliens becoming a hated minority in the city of Johannesburg deserves the approval from the Lord of the Rings director. It's one of the rare early 2000s sci fi films that still holds up in 2021. While it takes full advantage of what 2009 had to offer it terms of CGI, it's story is still what sells it the most. If you watch this movie again you won't doubt it and when the action begins in the second half it's nonstop fun bursting with creativity. I mean, he throws a pig with a gravity gun to eliminate an enemy. C'mon!
