Quick Post – Elysium

I’ve just put up an article on the Walking Dead which you really should read, brilliant article…I mean show. Now I just need a quick rant on the movie Elysium.

What the hell is going on at the end of Elysium? So everything goes really well for everyone on earth, not so much for Max (Matt Damon) but shit happens, he’s a bit of a tool anyway…seriously if the T1000 was after Max/Matt he would be toast, ┬áso all that aside…. Worlds been saved, everyone on Elysium got the rough end of the stick but hey they had it too good for too long. Everyone on earth becomes a citizen, great, now here is my gripe. The Elysium robot “system” sends down hundreds of medical ships to earth to find and fix the population, sounds great right? Where did these ships come from????? Everyone on Elysium has a pod to repair any problems they may have had, no-one on Elysium wants to help earth, so why would they have a large resource sitting in a hanger bay???? And why the frig would anyone build them????

Don’t get me started on the way Max/Matt won……ok started! He rebooted the system which means the entire Elysium went down..Bit of back ground on where I am going, throughout the movie ships landed on the surface by coming through a field that quite obviously kept the atmosphere in….so….wouldn’t, when the system goes down, the oxygen vent straight out into space?? And secondly, the gravity generator would stop so everything that wasn’t tied down would simply woosh up into space. Lets quickly entertain the thought that the reboot happened and the systems were kick arse enough to get the field back into place quickly and the oxygen back into Elysium so that everyone could breath again. No matter how quickly this happened, surely with the brief lack of gravity and oxygen everyone would be lifted from the ground then as soon as the gravity was put back they’d be slammed back down again to the ground. There would be a shit load of bone breaks, bruises and internal injuries that surely a few of the hundreds of medical ships would be required for the citizens of Elysium!!!!! That AND my arse all the ships started! They wouldn’t have been started in over a 100 years, could you imagine them even turning over????

Pfft!

Apart from that, it was quite a good movie! I recommend seeing it!!

Oops. ok not so quick post.

The Walking Dead

How How How does something so disturbing get me so engrossed?….and grossed out?

It’s finally here, Season 4 of the Walking Dead!!!

And I’m living it again…..living it again…hmm odd. LOVING IT. (I like to leave some spelling errors in there if they make some odd sense) By the last season it was coming across that the producers of this show were just about trying to get more disturbing imagery so that the viewer would dream some pretty fucked up shit…yes I did start to dream about zombies a lot!!! So the end of last season couldn’t come fast enough for me! With a few months break I was ready again!!

This episode …. SPOILERS …. starts out with the prison community working well for once, there seemed harmony. BBQ, farming, stabbing zombies through a cyclone fence all the normal stuff that happens inside a prison. I was ready for some character development, alas it was not meant to be. Fairly quickly it started to rain zombies in a supermarket, a screwed up Clara tries to lure Rick to his demise and some weird shit happens within the peaceful community. That’s enough of the rap up of the episode, watch it you don’t need my inane babbling. It’s a great episode you can’t get it fast enough, if you haven’t watched Walking Dead before then I suggest you start at the beginning … how smart am I!

If you don’t want to do that, there isn’t that much to it. Rick wakes up after being shot, looks for his wife and kid, finds a world full of zombies, finds family, finds friends, ends up at a farm, farm gets screwed up, move on to prison, find other community, community not nice, they try to kill prison, prison fend off, prison happy. That’s it in a nutshell.

Now! What a lot of people don’t know about over here is the Talking Dead…No it’s not another spelling mistake! the Talking Dead is an after show wrap up hosted by Chris Hardwick. Chris hosts actors from the series, producers, directors, and other celebrities that have nothing to do with the show but just seem to want to be there. The show talks about what “could have happened”, what “has happened” and what “may happen”. Chris is a professional comedian and self proclaimed nerd, apart from that he does a great job at hosting Talking Dead and as much as I enjoy Walking Dead, the after show is nearly as enjoyable probably because it doesn’t freak the shit out of me as much.

Walking Dead and Talking Dead! Get into them Both!!!

Enjoyment rating 4 out of 5 for both.
