Finally broke down and rented Elysium – in my defense, the promos I saw made it look like a predictable mech suit vs. mech suit slug fest and I wasn’t interested. But, then I saw a ‘making of’ two minute blurb at the hotel over the weekend and it went into more detail into the technical aspects of the the rich living in a space station circling Earth. I was intrigued.

The movie was still predictable, and it always irritates me when a movie needs to play the ‘child in danger’ card to get the audience vested, but the heavy Sci-Fi elements and eye candy effects were admittedly enjoyable, i.e. I don’t begrudge them the couple bucks and 109 minutes I invested in their film . . .
