Dead Air: Episode 35 - Elysium (2013)
"It's Better Up There."
This week on the show, James is mysteriously missing, but Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) and Shawn (@TheLiberalDead) dig into politics and Director Neill Blomkamp's sophomore feature, Elysium! Included is a full review of the film and an in-depth discussion of the current controversy surrounding it and its box office and critical reception.
Is it as good as DISTRICT 9? Why are the politicians super pissed off about it? Why does Matt Damon always look like Matt Damon? More importantly, how difficult is it to pronounce Sharlto Copley's name, and how sweet is his beard?
All of these burning questions will be answered... Oh, and don't worry if you haven't watched it yet. Tonight's show is a spoiler-free affair, with the revealing stuff left for last...
