    GLMX #158: The Way to the Real 'Elysium'

    in Movies

    The new science fiction movie, Elysium, depicts a futuristic dystopian society where Earth is overpopulated by the diseased and impoverished masses, while the wealthy and well-to-do live on an expansive space colony known as Elysium. The government of Elysium prevents those who live on Earth from immigrating and becoming citizens of Elysium. Those who try to do so are killed by the government of Elysium.

    The word "elysium" is a reference to the Greek idea of Paradise. The Greek philosophers and writers believed that Elysium, or the mythical Elysian Fields, was a beautiful, peaceful eternal destination reserved for the righteous and those favored by the gods. It was a place of peace -- a lush, green paradise where those who had lived well could enjoy the afterlife.

    In the film Elysium, Max is an ex-convict trying to survive in a dilapidated, run-down Los Angeles. He is friends with a woman who has a daughter named Matilda. Matilda is dying from Leukemia. At the factory where Max works, he is exposed to dangerous levels of radiation and is informed that he has only five days to live. Knowing that he can be cured in one of the advanced medical treatment centers on Elysium, he determines to find a way to get to the space colony to find healing for himself and Matilda. He connects with a smuggler named Spider, and they both begin to plot a way for all of those on Earth to become citizens of Elysium.

    Max's desperate attempt to gain healing on Elysium is reminiscent of man's search for escape from the desperate, down-trodden conditions of Earth. Like the Earth depicted in the film, our world is broken, filled with masses of people who are sick, physically and spiritually. We are people who long for Heaven.

    Scottscope Talk Radio 8/10/2013: Exodus to Elysium!

    in Entertainment

    On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable dissects Elysium!  Is it a truly a “thinking man’s” sci-fi actioner, like District 9?  Has writer/director Neill Blomkamp fallen victim to the dreaded sophomore slump?  Is he this generation’s Stanley Kubrick, or merely a grittier James Cameron?  Is Matt Damon a credible action hero outside of the Bourne films?  What drew him to such a project?  How did Blomkamp and his crew manage such seamless FX work on a relatively modest budget?  Do films like Elysium offer a cheaper and more efficient way to make blockbuster entertainment?
    We’ll also be celebrating the 25 anniversary of N.W.A’s infamous debut, Straight Outta Compton!  Is it the single most influential album of all time?  Did it single handedly change the course of Hip-Hop forever?  Where there any positive aspects to the changes it brought about?  Is it truly as negative as its reputation suggests?  Is “ tha Police” a righteous protest song a la “Fight the Power,” or is it merely a rallying cry for Black America’s lowest element?  Would the first renaissance of West Coast Gangsta rap have been possible without it?   Can Wu-Tang be considered New York’s answer to N.W.A?  Just how much of an influence did RUN D.M.C, The Beastie Boys, and BDP exert over this album?
