Elysium: yes please.

As someone who loves science fiction, and thinks the genre is capable of creating great and powerful works of art that expand the mindgrapes in new and unique ways, I am always thrilled to find something new. Totally new. Most of our blockbusters these days are re-treaded from existing properties. That doesn’t mean they are not brilliant (Avengers is brilliant). But seeing something that looks totally new always ramps me up.

So, with that, here is Elysium, the new film from Neill Blomkamp. Blomkamp made District 9, which is one of the most creative sci-fi films of the past decade, says I.

Yes please.
