Flew recently on Delta with its AVOD IFE system – quite a large choice of films / movies. For what it’s worth, here are my thoughts on the two I watched:

District 9:

Sci-fi thriller with a lovely fresh slant on the alien theme: they come, they arrive, they are treated like refugees, herded into camps, dismissively referred to as “prawns” and are mistreated. Given that this all takes place in Jo-Burg, the parallels are clear.

The documentary style lasts only for the first half hour, and the satirical edge is lost as it becomes an effects-driven explosion fest, but it’s still a rollicking great film. Definitely watch.
