District 9: A middle-management stooge (Sharlto Copley) oversees the resettlement of thousands of aliens packed into a squalid Johannesburg refugee camp. This magnificent science-fiction classic engages not only the mind but the heart as well.

(500) Days of Summer: The He (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and She (Zooey Deschanel) of this un-love story meet cute in an elevator and then are off to the races, thumbing through record shops together and playing house at IKEA. Told in a teasing, fractured timeline, this is a deeply funny, seductive and surprisingly honest dramatization of the ways we snooker ourselves into incompatible love.
