Theater, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Rent (but possibly theater). The first time I watched the trailer for Elysium was today actually, right before I was typing this. The movie’s promotion has flown under my radar, but wow, I’m kind of intrigued. Elysium seems to have a lot going for it-great cast, awesome special effects, and an interesting story. I’m game for this. Whether I make it to the theater or not is up in the air at this point, but for a surefire rental? Absolutely.
Theater, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Theater (but possibly theater). I was a massive fan of director Neil Blomkamp’s last film, District 9. I thought the it was an absolutely brilliant blend of science fiction, action and social commentary. If I’ve gathered anything from the trailers that have been circulating for the last year — it’s that Elysium will be delivering that same blend. Will it be as awesome as D9? That’s tough to say, but I’m definitely going to be in theater to find out. –BB
