SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

4K Blu-ray Review: Elysium - Out Now

ElysiumFrom writer and director Neill Blomkamp (District 9), the science fiction film Elysium comes to 4k Ultra HD. The film stars Matt Damon as Max, who grew up on the slums of an overpopulated Earth with his friend Frey (Alice Braga), dreaming of the luxurious lifestyle of those on Elysium. Secretary Delacourt (Jody Foster) will do anything in her power to keep those of Earth away from Elysium, but that doesn’t stop them from trying. After a life-threatening accident at work, Max is willing to do what it takes to make his way to Elysium to be cured. Agreeing to steal information from John Carlyle (William Fichtner), Max is outfitted with body mods and an exoskeleton by Spider (Wagner Moura) and sent on a deadly mission pitting him against the rogue Agent Kruger (Sharlto Copley). He gets more than he bargained for when he receives information that could bring equality to the two worlds.

I very much enjoyed Elysium. The story of the movie is relatable to the world today, featuring social commentary on issues such as social class division, health care, and more, yet is not patronizing. It’s also, just in general, a really fun sci-fi movie with a good script.

The film also looks fantastic, from the sets to the special effects. There is so much detail in everything, and the worlds of Elysium and future LA are really believable and make you feel like you are there. Blomkamp really knows his world building, and everything just fits together perfectly.

A Fastball for Freedom by Gary Morgenstein - Available 3/25/21

A War-weary 22nd Century World Turns to Baseball, Robots, and Faith in
A FASTBALL FOR FREEDOM by Gary Morgenstein


Gary Morgenstein, a native New Yorker and die-hard Yankee’s fan, combines his love of dystopian, science fiction, and baseball in his latest release, A Fastball for Freedom, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed novel A Mound Over Hell.

Set in 2098, twenty-five years after America has been defeated by Islam, the country is no longer a great democracy or a world power. Society is now run by the Family, and almost everything is illegal, including social media. In a robot- and hologram-run world, the fading game of baseball, once the national pastime, is now synonymous with treason, and represents the world’s last hope for peace.

Baseball historian Puppy Nedick is back, on the run from the government that lists him and his friends as traitors. Challenged by weaponized religion and a new Family figurehead, Puppy will stop at nothing to fight against the new regime as he and his friends struggle to survive in a hate-ravaged planet and avoid a final cataclysmic global conflict.

Wyman said that when they first shopped the show, NBC they said that they wanted a show that would “break boundaries” and was “artist-driven.”

He said that they are all really excited about the series. “It speaks to things that I think aren't really out there right now. There's a hope and a concept that maybe there's something out there that we don't know that we don't know, and that is something that I think is intriguing enough.”
