AnarchyVision: Jason Gorber Talks ELYSIUM, WE'RE THE MILLERS and LOVELACE
This week's big release is Elysium, which I had frankly mixed feelings about. As I said on Twitter, it seems that even Oblivion, with its abandonment of originality yet maintaining a pleasing aesthetic and engaging narrative, proved the better attempt at making high concept sci-fi this moviegoing season.

Also talked Lovelace, another ambitious but highly flawed film, this one about the travails of the pornography industry. Finally, I chat about We're The Millers, a film I had little hope for, yet found in its mix of high concept humor and strong performances quite a bit to recommend about it.

For a bonus, you get a rare Friday afternoon tease of the weekend box office, along with our regular Sunday show with the inimitable Scott Laurie.

Gorber is wrong about Elysium, it's a far better film than OBLIVION, if only because it is a straightforward no-nonsense one that isn't trying to hide tired twists, but rather only confident about getting its business done. I was pretty happy with the film, in fact for me it feels like the more-real-in-spirit reboot or ROBOCOP that I suspect the actual reboot will be. Throw in some fine Johnny Mnemonic elements, and that makes me a happy camper.

"This week's big release is Elysium, which I had frankly mixed feelings about."

Heavy handed metaphors...?

Yeah, to be fair District 9(2009) had that problem too, but I was willing to overlook it because it was Neill Blomkamps debut feature.

But now you are saying he has same problem here...?

That might cause trouble.......well, I will see it.

"Also talked Lovelace, another ambitious but highly flawed film"

WHAT?????

No, no and no......there can be NO flaws in a movie starring Amanda Seyfried as a famed pornstar...hahhahahhahahha....

We're the Millers (2013) was that fun...?
Well, I want to see Anistons body double.....she seems to have a nice ass.....hahhahahahahhahahah
Great work, as always I wish you had full hour with Scott Laurie, you guys do a great job, thanks.
