I'm not even wasting my time with the political crap message coming from that movie. Really a shame too since D9 was so epic and the political message in that was fairly toned down.

I watched No One Lives yesterday, pretty solid flick. Very gory and entertaining although equally predictable but still worth a watch. The lead, Luke Evans is cast as Eric Draven in The Crow remake. I think he will be solid in that role. Other than that we've just been watching Christmas movies. Dusted off the HD-DVD player and watched Lethal Weapon last night, watched Just Friends a few nights ago and White Christmas streaming on NF last week.

It pretty much hits ya over the club with it, yes D9 was pretty good, effects and story telling. I still wouldn't mind having that Chemrail gun MD was using in elysium.

If you decide not to see Elysium, do so because it's not a good movie, not because of any assumed "political message."

Apartheid is "toned down" compared to Elysium?eek.gif
I suggest you watch Elysium BEFORE making such a judgment.

I recall having a discussing with a couple people in the Elysium thread about it and their view was that the political message theme was far more dominate in Elysium than in D9 but since I have not seen it I can only go off what I have read.

One movie I have forgotten about but watching now is Scent of a Woman, what a great movie! the Thanksgiving speech that ends with Pacino doing the Ranger choke hold on the smart ass nephew is priceless!

FWIW and IMO, D9 had a much more strident political message.
Imagine a movie which takes place in America and has people who are of color or gay or whatever is different from than the majority being locked up in concentration camps and tortured.

Elysium only really addresses the class and economic divide, which, of course, is a real thing.
However, the movie does it rather clumsily and detracts from the plot.
The effect makes the film a murky, hodge-podge affair that doesn't gel.
Naturally, YMMV.

Excellent. There wasn't much to his part in the Smaug Hobbit but maybe part three will be better for him.

I am doing Elysium tonight. D9 was so much fun that there HAS to be something in this and hoping all the naysayers are just fuddy duddies or something. Pardon my French...tongue.gif
I know folks that absolutely hated D9 so here's to hoping...

I guess you can say the main A.I. Computer had 'hatred' towards human kind and logically devised a way to get rid of them. I know I am reaching but the machines goal trumps any human hatred towards race, sexual orientation, creed or religion.

I enjoyed it as well. Not amazing, but certainly a good watch.

The "A.I. Computer" wanted the humans dead because they were considered threats.

I know a few here have been contemplating cutting the cord, including myself. Well my better half wanted access to E and Bravo (on the fly) so I reduced my channels and saved $15 per month keeping the Dish service. Dish did give me free HD for those channels for free and it is normally a $10 a month charge. Also their rates are going up in Feb by $7 per month.

That's kind of where we are. Our D* service is just basic and barely watched besides the End of Civilization Channel Bravo. Nearly all we primarily watch are streams and my physical library which is getting a lot of new stuff due to the kid. I think I have 3 season passes. One for TWD, one for Bizzare Foods America, one for Lost Survivors.

Were cool. Elysium...not so much. For all the similarities Neil should have just made the D9 sequel. Though maybe it's a good thing it didn't happen if he was going to screw it up like Elysium. Beautifully constructed movie for sets, layout, AV. But I care for characters less after I am TOLD I need to care about them.

Sharlto and Jodie foster were cool, the rest of the characters were a big meh - Matt Damon especially. For some reason Elysium made me feel better about The Purge??

For those that saw Elysium Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It seemed that Elysium was dependent on Earth somewhat, i.e. robot manufacturing. I wonder why the movie makers didn't explore that some more instead of the medical pod pull to get to Elysium. Granted I know that was important but there wasn't a big build up to get to Elysium.

I can't tell what extras are on the disc but Blomkamp had a pretty good commentary on D9 but I might rent Elysium on disc (having seen the movie in the theater) if there is a commentary. I had arguments around the net on the backstory (loved they made the place where Damon's character worked resemble Walmart though it was a factory). I thought some people's interpretation was upside down. Sony doesn't do "rental" editions.

Great idea! So far we haven't gotten too creative with the elf poses. We have the same finger puppet zombies you have! The girl zombie is how my daughter got the idea for her Overly Sensitive Zombie Girl character.

The BD box doesn't say commentary feature (so I think it is not on this release) on the disk but it does have a few extra features how they made the film. I will probably get to watching those features later this weekend.

Watched "Berberian Sound Studio" last night. Not a good horror film, and I'm not even certain it's a good film, although I enjoyed watching most of it. I loved the setup and the loving retro depiction of how movie sounds were made in Italy back in the day, but then the film's story just kinda went nowhere. I am not really certain what happened at the end. What we are left with is a story about a guy not fitting in at a work assignment. It's a shame a great concept, atmosphere and look was wasted.

This movie rates mostly positive with critics on Rotten Tomatoes, but only about 50% with the general public.

Oh, and by the way, how hot was Tonia Sotiropoulou as the pouty secretary? I could have done with a lot more of her!
