    That's along the lines of what I was thinking.

    I found a link to the short on youtube. It may or may not be a spoiler to the movie District 9. The director of Halo made the short.

    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Awesome!!! That's an even better trailer than the official one! I guess that's the original short?

    People afraid of "preachy sci-fi" will not like it I'm sure. I prefer the term"speculative fiction" for this type of thing (which often has the nasty habit of coming true). I'm thinking I will love it.

    Yes, the movie does look cool and interesting. It may turn out to be an allegory about racism and other prejudices.

    I have seen bus stops around my town and down in the LA area that say something along the lines of "Human Only Bus Stop".

    "May turn out" nothing; it's almost certainly that way. Just watch the short.
    I heard that the Halo movie may have been canned - from the things I've been reading in the movie rags, it sounds like District 9 might be some sort of "test run" to see if this guy can really pull off a full-length film.

    hmm..
    I saw the trailer on TV last night, and my first thought was.."wow..looks totally lame and stupid"
    (and im generally a big fan of science fiction)
    what are you guys seeing that looks cool?

    I think the fact that it looks sooo different. Looks like normal people in an extraordinary situation is what makes District9 interesting for me. It presents a "plausible" WHAT-IF scenario when alien races make contact with human kind. Most of it also doesn't look like a movie...the shooting looks more like news camera footage and simple handycam shots.

    It could be an interesting movie, although, from the previews it's looking to have somewhat of a hollywoodish plot. We'll see what happens.
