500 Days of District 9

Every once in a while it's good to do things like a double feature at a movie theatre...
Even when it's two of the most painful movies that comment on human nature.

Fact 1: We don't always treat each other nicely. Physically. Emotionally. Whatever it may be.

District 9 was...Tragic.
There were some parts that were close to unbearable but not because of graphic violence, it was because of the nature of the film and people hurting each other for no reason. I really can't write a proper review because it's really something you just have to watch and think and talk about.

Though I do have to say the experience was enhanced by the fact that the person sitting next to me was making exploding sounds along with the film when people blew up.

Similarly, 500 Days of Summer shows us how we mess up people's lives when we're in relationships because we can't help but cause each other to experience a rollercoaster of emotions when we're romantically involved.

Also, we learn that relationships don't work when one or both people don't want something serious. It sounds like an okay idea, being casual about things, but I am not sure it ever works.

And we'll all just be miserable until we eventually find one person who we want to be with for forever (and who feels the same).

Side note: Sometimes it's scary knowing you have total control over your life.
and today (more like the past 36 hours) was one of the greatest days ever.
