THE COLLISION: Episode 56 – Escapism and ELYSIUM

     August 13, 2013


This week on The Collision, we talk about escapism, the desire for more substantive and intellectually challenging blockbusters, Hollywood’s condescending attitude towards audiences, and much more.  We also give our thoughts on Neill Blomkamp‘s sci-fi action film, Elysium.  As always, we finish up with our recommendations.

    Gattaca is a fantastic movie and the soundtrack by Michael Nyman is amazing.

    Great podcast, My problems with Elysiem is it’s beat by beat of what District 9 was, and nothing really gets solved at the end of the movie, except for the healthcare thing. Just wanted to point those out, since you guys didn’t touch on those problems with the movie. But yeah, it was a disappointing movie.
