So I usually don't blog on weekends, but I just came back from seeing the movie "District 9." I love director Peter Jackon's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy-- so much so that I own the extended edition for all the movies on DVD.
However, his latest movie is beyond bad. I hated every minute of it. At one point I had my head covered in my hoodie to avoid all the gruesome and squeamish parts. My previous worst movie had been "Lady in the Water," but now "District 9" has taken that not-so-special honor.
What were you thinking, Mr. Jackson? Aliens that eat cat food and like to collect junk? Really? I should have insisted that I see "Julie & Julia" instead. I hope I don't have nightmares about cat food eating aliens tonight.
