Chauncey DeVega's World of Ghetto Nerds: Sunday Evening Fun--District 9 Will Own You This Summer, But First Watch the Original Short Film

Aliens, a not so thin Apartheid allegory, and black and brown folks as the bigoted xenophobes is a great dramatic mix. But before you see District 9, be sure to watch the original short film that spawned the feature and check out the viral marketing campaign:

I will definitely catch this film in the theaters.

Oh yeah, that G.I. Joe Resolute is the BUSINESS!!! I definitely have some issues with it, but it is definitely tight.
