Sci-Fi Movie Saturday: Elysium!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hey Geeks,
Let's grab something to eat and go see Elysium (starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster), directed by the guy who made "District 9!"
The movie takes place in the distant future where the rich and powerful live on Elysium (with great health benefits and prime real estate) and the poor are left to starve and die on ruined Earth.
How delightful! (I'm kidding)
Random Trivia: The Matt Damon role was originally intended for Eminem (aka Slim Shady aka Marshall Mathers).

    Not sure if you guys watch Jeremy Jahns reviews... he reviews a lot of movies that WE like. So here's what he thought of Elysium:

    By the way how will we find each other at Cafe Adobe (or even at the theater)? Will there be a sign on the table? I will most likely be wearing one of my Marvel superhero t-shirts, or my Superman shirt... can't miss me! :)

    But just in case no one sees me by 6:30pm, my number is[masked]

    We'll be meeting at Cafe Adobe at 6:00 PM and then heading over to see Elysium at around 7:15 (movie starts at 7:40. Just to get good seats n' stuff).
    I'll be seated outside on that bench in front of Red Robin wearing my black Superman hat. Can't miss me.

    August 9, 2013

    • Natalie

      Ok LOL you and those hats: )

      Okay, Cafe Adobe!
      I will be wearing my black Superman Hat. I will be sitting in front of the Red Robin. Can't miss me. From there we can all walk to Cafe Adobe.

      We usually meet at Red Robin at 6:00 PM. But if anyone wants to meet at Cafe Adobe this time I'm up for it!

    FYI: The showing of Elysium that we will be attending starts at 7:40 PM (we're just meeting at six to eat and hang)!
    I've already purchased my advance ticket on Fandango.

      I assume we'll go into the theater by 6:30 or 6:40, so we can score good seats :) But prior to that, where will the group be meeting?

    I'm there. I already have my Regal Cinema ticket. By the way, is anyone else excited to see Sharlto Copley playing a quasi-cyborg BAMF?
