Went and saw it today and liked it a lot.
I turned to my son about a third of the way through and asked when it became animated. He gave me the "what in the hell are you talking about look."
Halfway through, still no animation. Ask him one more time. He tells me to shut up. Then i started thinking to myself, " Tim Burton is really taking a detour from his normal work." But what the hell, maybe he's going in a different direction.
Credits roll. Never any animation. Walk out and told my son that the movie was nothing like i thought it would be, mainly because i thought it was animated. About that time, we walk past the poster for "9" which was what i thought we saw. I say "see, the poster has animation!"
He then explains to me that they are different movies, to which i respond, "well, what in the hell did we just watch?"
I never heard of "District 9" before today.
With all that being said, i enjoyed it.
Can't wait till "9" comes out. Next month. Animated.
