Is District 9 worthy of a blind purchase?

Yes.  I thought it was the best film of the year.

Totally - loved it - especially if you're a fan of anything aliens and V.  BD also comes with a preview of GOW III if you're into gaming and have a PS3 of course.

I've heard nothing but good things about it.  I was thinking of picking this up too - did you find a good deal on it?

I read this and thought to myself "Wait a sec...Gears of War is for the X-box!" -- Silly me.   :D

District 9 was a fantastic movie....well worth the purchase.

I watched Inglorious Basterds Saturday... 

Wow that was a ****** film.  The only thing remotely cool in it was Brad Pitt, and the Basterds if they'd taken the time to show them doing what they do beyond basically one scene.  Otherwise that's one big fat waste of time...  And if you're into anything history/military history, then skip this completely or your eyes will melt I think.

I like Tarantino, but this movie was the worst thing I've seen in a long time.

$17.99 on Amazon

I gotta disagree with Jesse on Inglorious Basterds.  I thought it was a pretty brilliant film.  It seemed to me Tarantino's purpose was to ratchet up the tension level as high as he could manage, then keep it there for as long as humanly possible.  There were so many amazing scenes where the protagonists balanced on the edge of disaster for tortuously long periods where it was just impossible to catch your breath.  The Nazis were constantly probing... testing... tormenting the good guys, attempting to trip them up.  And in each instance the outcome could (and does) go either way. I can see how it could possibly come across as talky and mundane to some, but I was enthralled.  I can't wait to watch it again to see all I missed.

The BD is also $20 at Target ... and that $5 off Target coupon is still good until Christmas Eve. 
That's where I'll be picking it up today.

I might just have to go out and buy D9 "blind" as well.   Thanks for the tip on the Target coupon!
