  6. Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems: A Review of Elysium

    Review

    “Enjoyed” may be the wrong word to describe how viewers might feel about Neill Blomkamp’s sophomore sci-fi jaunt, Elysium. “Experienced” would be more apt, for this gritty dystopian vision is a tough one, hard on the eyes and adrenal system, if not much on the heart. A highly explosive action-adventure, Elysium falls prey to genre tropes more often than it blows past them, making for a well-crafted, if somewhat standard, feature. Unlike the allegorically stronger structure of Blomkamp’s big splash into Hollywood, District 9, this follow-up is thematically weaker and less substantial. It may reach for the stars, but Elysium, unfortunately, falls under its setup’s own weight. Wealthy and privileged SPOILERS are protected beneath the cut.

  7. Elysium Space Station is Actually Totally Believable, Says NASA Scientist

    As long as science gets awesomer, and you’re around in a thousand years.

    In the future, everything is terrible – according to most movies, anyways. But Neill Blomkamp’s newest film Elysium shows us a 22nd century which isn’t entirely the worst (if you’re rich enough). In 2154, Earth’s fanciest folk have abandoned the planet’s surface, living in style on a space station. But how realistic is Blomkamp’s vision, really?

  8. Add Elysium‘s Secretary Delacourt to the List of Characters Written for Men and Played by Women

    Gender Bendery

    Jodie Foster and Neill Blomkamp talked to Entertainment Weekly recently about the process of getting the much celebrated actress onto the production of Blomkamp's first return to the director's chair since District 9. As it turns out, even though both of them would have loved to work with the other, it almost didn't happen because her character was originally written to be male.

  10. New Elysium Trailer Might Make It My Most-Anticipated Movie of the Summer. Sorry, Pacific Rim. I Still Love You. [VIDEO]

    My Precious!

    My reaction to the first trailer for Elysium, Neill Blomkamp's follow-up to District 9, was "<Matthew McConaughey voice>All right, all right, all right,</Matthew McConaughey voice> this looks pretty cool." My reaction to this new, longer trailer, which gives us a better look at the state of things for the 99 percenters living on Earth and the plight of poor Matt Damon? "Sweet dystopian Jesus, give it to me now.*" *Why yes, I do think in gifs. I spend too much time on Tumblr. That's what happens.
