Elysium

Elysium ~ Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet's crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium - but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens' luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max, an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission - one that pits him against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt and her hard-line forces - but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

We will meet at 3:45 pm. The movie starts at 4:15pm.  Don't forget to purchase your ticket when you arrive. We will wait in the outer lobby for about 10 minutes and then go in as a group.  If you are late, just find a seat and meet us outside the theater after the movie.

After the movie we will gather at a nearby restaurant for some conversation and a bite to eat.

A $2.00 annual contribution will be collected at the first movie you attend in 2013 to help with the cost of maintaining the web site for this year.

See you at the movies!

    It was definitely not a great movie, but it was not a horrible movie either. Not a good role for Jodie Foster at all. I am totally shocked at some of the comments and believe that some people are over reaching in some of the comments. It is a movie, and it is make believe

    The movie was so-so. A little to much science fiction for me.

      I really didn't like the movie and I have to agree with Christine that Matt is a great actor. Jodie Foster is too but not in this movie. It was nice to get together though.

    To me it was a huge political statement from the start. Love Matt D. He is one great actor though.
    Jodie Foster another great actress was terrible in the movie. It was as if the movie was produced and directed from the present administration in Washington and a huge commercial for Obama care. Too much gore too.

    I already saw this movie when it came out last week. Great movie, but the underlying issues presented are quite controversial. Just beware. I will make the next flick when we get together. You all will enjoy this film. :)
