Did you like District 9 and Neill's other films?

Watch Neill Blomkamp's Oats Studios Short Rakka Online Now | Collider

Rakka features a pretty big A-list star in Sigourney Weaver, who co-starred in Blomkamp’s last feature film Chappie and had given Blomkamp her support to lead his now-dead Alien sequel that would’ve picked up with Ripley, Newt, and Hicks. The aesthetic here in Rakka is woefully familiar—Blomkamp really likes a grungy, grimy, realistic future with hard-edged tech and handheld cameras. The alien designs are, unsurprisingly, stunning, as Blomkamp has proven adept at crafting incredible looking effects on smaller budgets. But the story also feels quite familiar—like a mash-up of Terminator, Edge of Tomorrow, and Blomkamp’s own District 9.

I can't say I understand the appeal of Blomkamp's movies. Not suggesting the movies have been terrible, but like a pop music band to a middle aged person, it feels like I don't "get" why he has a large fan following.
