There are many reason to go see Neill Blomkamp's Summer Blockbuster Elysium, here are my favorite 10!

Having seen Elysium, I think all the above points are just right. (nice one Freeze)
I'm happy that Blomkamp did not go down the 3D route as I think this would have taken something away from what is a visually stunning piece of work.

Excellent article Freeze! I haven't seen the movie yet, but this really makes me want to.

I watched this one, & overall, I believe it was well done, as is your recommendation here. The only compliant with the film (which is simply a personal one) is concerning a lethal dose of you know what (a common theme this Spring-Summer in Hollywood Sci-Fi, along with the atom-splitting 'big boom').
The #s Game:
8+9+2+0+1+3 = 23 (Aug.9th, 2013 US/CAN release)
54-21 = 33 (2154)
Helicopter #23 (seen at least twice)
41-8 = 33 (Wall-panel in Hong Kong base: 41 underneath 8 )
Man of Steel:
Running Time: 2 hours 23 minutes (143m)
Superman's age: 33
Jesus' Crucifixion Date Possibly Friday April 3, 33 A.D.
How old was Jesus Christ when he was crucified?

It's something I've been looking into since this thread. It appears to me this sort of thing has been happening with films, since at least the 1970s (likely goes back further). Even "Prometheus" with it's 10.11.12 (33) in the credits. And also can be found in Japanese media too, surprisingly. "Pacific Rim" included the dreaded '42' for the Japanese, on the exterior of the base, LOL.
