Slow Down, Kemosabe

Please see District 9:

I thought it was just going to be another movie about aliens and things getting blown up, but it was one of the most provocative movies I've ever seen. It explores basic rights, not human ones, though. What's weird is that even though in the movie you're watching aliens being mistreated and not having rights, it's actually the exact way white South Africans treated black South Africans during Apartheid. Look it up.

Then Smack It Like E. Honda

I know everyone remembers Street Fighter:

A good percentage of my childhood was spent beating that game on every mode as every character. I ain't crazy, no, yes I am.
