Elysium

The Director of 'District 9' gives us another 'edgy sci-fi drama with provocative social comment' (according to the Phoenix website). 

Meet in the Foyer/Costa Coffee of the Magdalen Street cinema by 5.45pm for a 6pm movie start. For those who are new, will make a sign so you can find us. And for those who are interested, a post-movie drink and a chat is a possibility,venue to be made up on the day!!

    mnnn........ Well I thought it was really good....... right up to the point when he put the robot suit on..... then it was just terminator meets robocob meets ironman.......but without the humour....... with dialog you couldn't hear.....very strong Spanish / South African accents........ predicable plot...... and as always with these movies.....too much violence but absolutely no sex. Ha-ha. Great film ! Er....I mean crap film ! ha-ha-ha But still glad I went for the great company ! Hope to see you all again soon.

    PS thanks for organising, Kersty! It was great to see everyone and nice big screen at Odeon Magdalen St too.

    A film bursting with potentially interesting ideas, none of which were explored to any satisfactory degree! Extended action scenes are not a substitute for an involved plot and non-cliched characterisation. However it was really good to have an after-film chat over drinks, and it was great to see everyone.

    Film started with an interesting idea but descended into cliche too soon. The company and drinks after were really good though!

    Hi Julie - I'll be coming straight from work and will be cutting it fine so please save me a seat:)

  • Julie

    Hi All, just to say I managed to book my ticket online re. this on the Odeon website, and re. standard seating, the seating is unreserved, so you don't need to pick a seat in advance (helpful for us trying to sit together as a group!).

    I can do Thursday, looking forward to it. See you there!

    Hi All, just to say this is very much a members' group, so anyone who can't make the first planned MeetUp to see 'Elysium' next Thursday should feel free, indeed be encouraged!, to set up their own second MeetUp to see it at a convenient time for them. All you need to do is send a message to Richard, group organiser, through the website (his name is first in the panel on the left and his photo above it, click on his name to send message) or even just by posting here, and he will make you an assistant organiser and you can post your own Meet Up. The more the merrier! It would be good to call it "Elysium, second showing" or something to differentiate the two occasions but otherwise it just needs someone to set a time and day that suits everyone! It's really not a hassle and posting one MeetUp doesn't commit you to having to put up stuff regularly - only when you feel like it.

    Can't make it, got an exam the next day, but would be up for seeing it the following week.

    August 24, 2013

  • Julie

    PS I'd definitely be up for a post-film drink and a chat, particularly as I think it might be one of those films I need explained to me afterwards!!! I'm not sure when it opens, but it might be an idea to get tickets beforehand in case sells out?

    August 24, 2013

  • Julie

    I can make it on Thursday and I look forward to it. Brian - I'm sure people will still want to see it the week after if you or someone puts up another MeetUp the week after.

    Hi,
    Thanks for spotting that Julie. The one night I can make it next week is Thursday as I am away Mon-Wed - the following week is freer but am happy to see it sooner rather than later. I think given the number of people listed to come and the amount of time the date has been left open, there are probably going to be a few who can't make it. So will put up next Thursday and see what the happens, rather than wait for everyone to reply, which could take ages. And yes, I guess if there is enough comment about not being able to make it, a meet-up the following week can be organised (by someone else!!)
    Cheers

    Hi All! I see that Elysium is starting its run in Oxford and will be showing next week (week beginning Aug 26) at the Odeon Magdalen St. I think this will be in the very large screen at the Magdalen St Odeon and this would be a good place to see a sci-fi dystopian thingy with the big screen. I'd be up for seeing it next week (week beginning 26 Aug), any night after Tuesday (ie Wed onwards). I know that Brian can't make it then and don't want anyone not included of course. But I think a lot of people may want to see this and that it might make sense to have two different times to see it, eg next week, and also the week after. Just an idea. Kersty kindly suggested this, so perhaps she has a view? See also my other post about The Way Way Back.

    I'm only a Yes if this takes place after I get back from holiday (1st Sept or later) but want to see this film.

    If we are off work, my partner and I would love to come

    August 18, 2013

  • Michelle

    Sounds like a plan to me! See you all there.

    August 18, 2013

  • Julie

    This sounds good so depending on timing I'd be up for seeing it!
