Latest Matt Damon film in theaters a few weeks now...anyone see it yet?

Written and directed by Neil Blomkamp who did District 9 as well. You really get the same feeling from the world in this movie, unfortunately the story wasn't nearly as compelling. The characters played by Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley (main character from D9) were a little over the top and hard to watch at times.

I saw this was in theaters and literally no idea what it was about or who was in it. We also didnt watch any tv for the past 2 weeks so that's probably why

Wait for it. I used the $5 spotlight at Marcus theatres and was the only one in there for the showing which was a plus but not worth an expensive ticket price.

With that said, I need to create a thread later about home viewing setups

I thought it looked kinda cool. And I really enjoyed District 9.

Saw it tonight. It was ok. I agree with Alex that Foster's character was too over the top. She was over acting it big time. And I couldn't tell what kind of accent she was supposed to have.
