I went and watched Elysium last night. It was one of the poorer films I've seen in recent memory. Given how good District 9 is, I was expecting a lot more from Blomkamp here. This film is indicative of a wider trend that I've been noticing with big budget films: god-awful weak, overdone plot and story lines alongside excessively done visual effects. Nothing really made any sense, and despite the not-so subtle critique of the 1%, I found myself almost nodding off for much of the film. And, the flashback sequences...At least the popcorn was hot.
