I saw D9 last night, it was amazing. I rank it up there on the scale of really good, original scifi movies- like the first Matrix or the first two Aliens movies. Go see it, you'll have a good time.
I don't think it's necessarily fair to compare D9 to RoC. They are two entirely different movies aimed at different audiences- as evidenced by their respective ratings (D9 is definatly a hard R).

RE: This threads title
The data gathered for this conclusion is based on collectors of Roy soldiers on one website and their feelings towards a film based on these toys? People's feelings here on ROC tend to be based on how the film reflects their relationship and feelings towards their collectibles, or at least it is a significant bias for many. Assuminy the films had any relation whatsoever, people's opinions here are irrelavent research material, since we don't represent the entire nation and have stronger interests invested in ROC than the general population.
Plus, District 9 has already made back every cent used to make it, therefore not a bomb.

On the other hand, RoC is near 100 million domestically... That's not too bad. It WILL make a profit with overseas money. Not to mention the toys and other tie ins.

the two films are competely different, i liked and enjoyed both! as far as what movie does better, WHO CARES!!! are you making profit off of either one? i kno i'm not, i could care less about how much money a movie makes, i go for the entertainment and enjoyment of the movie. i'll buy the blu ray disc, i'll watch it over and over enjoying it each time, not once will i worry about the summer of 2009 and how much money either one of them made, i would do the same for both of their sequils, if they both are so lucky to get one, i kno i'd be in line to see D10, and Gi Joe 2 the rise of the dreadnoks.

Saw it, and personally enjoyed it more then ROC. Definitely a bit unique as someone else pointed out, but it's worth the watch.
Started off SUPER slow with the "interviews" and such as I found my self wondering what the hell did I just pay for, but as things get going it gets pretty good/interesting. Needless to say...I look forward to the sequel!

Iíve seen RoC last weekend and District 9 today and have to say I enjoyed them both. Like stated earlier they are both 2 different animals.

District 9 has to be one of the most unique sci fi movies ive seen in a while. What's even more impressive is that they made the movie with only 30mil. Great movie!
