District 9 (No spoilers)

Good movie -- although quite a bit of gore and language.

I went in with fairly high expectations, although I wasn't entirely sure what to expect.

In science fiction films (and stories) I usually enjoy the set up more than the ending. While I was a bit skeptical during the first third of District 9 -- while it ultimately worked, I thought the screen play "almost" stumbled once or twice in the story's setup -- by the midpoint of the movie the story had sucked me in entirely.

In any event, good movie. I think it's a legitimate Oscar contender.
