This weekend sees the release of Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium in the US and UK, in which 23rd century Matt Damon declares war on a space station to force them to cure his cancer. I’m starting to suspect the twist may be that he’s a mental patient and it’s all in his head.
Although it’s only Neill Blomkamp’s second feature film (after the excellent District 9) he made a number of short films, all of which are available on Youtube, all of which I watched, and reviewed to give an idea of his career so far.

I guess the suspense hangs on whether the space station is the Death Star or Sputnik.
Yeah, it’s much better to go after something lazy and unimportant like Sputnik, just sitting there, rather than something creating the Death Star, creating thousands of jobs.
My review of Elysium goes up tomorrow.
Missed you for the IWSG this month.
Had a bit much on this Wednesday, hope to get back in next month, as well as keeping up to date with the blogs I’m following…
