Elysium



I remember reviews for ELYSIUM were pretty negative when it 1st came out but I thought it was a pretty entertaining sci-fi action-adventure. It wasn't quite the social commentary that DISTRICT 9 was and Jodie Foster was a wee bit annoying, but the world building was visually great (though the concept doesn't go much deeper than that proposed in the trailers). And some of the shaky-cam was egregious, but I promise you it's not all that bad. I wasn't convinced Blomcamp could do a good ALIEN movie based on the conceptual artwork he released, but after watching ELYSIUM I'm a little reassured that at the very least it would be a fun ride. #facebook
