    Trying to figure out why I should give a fuck about Neil Blomkamp anymore. He made ONE GOOD MOVIE. Who fucking cares? Everyone acted like he was the second coming when he was doing an Alien movie, and it never happened. Now he might be doing a Robocop movie that won't touch the original. Woooo!

    I couldn’t say it better myself. Blomkamp would be a great cinematographer or effects director, but his attempts to make message movies when he appears to have the sociopolitical understanding of a stoned 13-year old really make me not to ever see anything he directs ever again.

    And, even that movie is highly overrated. It was all premise, no hat. Sure, great idea to symbolize apartheid with aliens - but, it really never did anything with the metaphor. Treating minorities poorly is bad. Deep.

    It is a decent film at least in the directors cut version, and no, it wasn't even close to turning a profit.
