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.
