this was my favorite film from last year... I can't say I'm surprised by this news, as Blomkamp stated in the director's commentary of D9 that the entire exosuit sequence was inspired by Macross and several other mecha anime. This is still cool, though.

It's been mentioned before. Blomkamp stated the missiles on the Prawn Battlesuit were influenced by Macross (via the US edit Robotech) within the District 9 director's commentary. It's a rather rare but welcome reference to Itano made by a notable film director.

haha, did you read my post? I already mentioned how Neill cited Macross/Robotech in the director's commentary.

unless if you meant that there's been discussion about it on here before.
