DISTRICT 9 ORIGINAL SCORE (CLINTON SHORTER) 1

THE STORY SO FAR:

The premise of the film, which is based on Blomkamp’s short film, Alive in Joburg and was produced by Peter Jackson, centers on the fallout caused by a group of alien refugees stranded on Earth (in Johannesburg) and forced into a segregation camp (the title comes from District 6, a former inner-city residential area in Cape Town infamous for the forced removal of 60,000 residents in the 70s by the Apartheid regime).

1. District 9
2. I Want That Arm

THE CRITICISM:

The original score for District 9 is by Canadian composer Clinton Shorter. He’s a previous collaborator of the director. While a great movie, the score didn’t have any memorable moments. Maybe that comes from being in a generation dominated by John Williams giving everyone a legendary theme. It’s background fodder for the most part akin to the socially aware Sci-Fi of the 1970s. I appreciate the music, but it doesn’t mean I love it.

THE BREAKDOWN

Final Score:  96% – A
