District 9 -- Two Thumbs Up, Way Up

If you like your films to tackle big ideas, head out to District 9. We went on Friday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The set-up was a bit slow, but then it catches fire and takes you on a Hell of a ride.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
