District 9 (2009)
This movie had lots of the same themes as Avatar, but was much more complex and interesting. I liked it but didn't love it. One of the problems it had was that it was split between a mockumentary-style and then a more forward narrative approach and they didn't really mesh. I would have preferred it if it was just straight-ahead narrative with the mockumentary stuff just in the beginning. I love what the director was able to do with the special effects--it looked great, and I think it cost only about 30 million.
