Neill Blomkamp’s sophomore feature length film, Elysium, is a thought-provoking, edgy sci-fi drama that deals out the heavy handed message of classism. District 9, Blomkamp’s first major motion picture, presented race inequality issues, in a very clever way, by placing the alien species as a minority in strife with humanity. It was brilliant, meanwhile Elysium reinforces the classism throughout the picture; that’s not to say it’s a bad thing, but it gets repetitive. Now apart from that, Elysium is another gem which should be in the ranks of other top-tier sci-fi films. Ranging from the great acting to the incredible production design, there are a lot of right things with this film that make it stand out from the other blockbuster fare that has been recently clogging our theaters.
That’s right, folks. We’re taking a break this week, but we’ll be back next week with a new episode! Meanwhile, check out our over 36 hours of content to hold you over until next time.
When I saw the picture above, it blew my mind. What the hell is going on? The Pope, the spiritual leader of 1.18 billion people, is in fact controlled by the insidious Umbrella Corporation.
