    Elysium in Theaters

    Finally after a few days of wishing, hoping and praying, I checked the local newspaper for movie showtimes in theater near me, Elysium will be there! And I can't wait to see it this weekend, YES!

    Interviews, Monuments Men



    Perfect review:

    Damon dominates with a powerful and humanist performance. He blends his trademark Everyman humility with a dose of Bruce Willis toughness (along with Willis’ shaved dome). He makes Max a down-to-earth action hero — even when he’s got a metal exoskeleton screwed into his skeleton.

    Blomkamp deftly balances the action requirements with the issues, and fills in the background with enough detail to make this multi-cultural dystopian split between the haves and have-nots feel logical and familiar. He manages to make "Elysium" feel at once fantastic and grounded in reality.

    First official photos from Monuments Men:

    We're seeing more Latinos in Hollywood films. Did you who you like to work in your next movie?
    There are so many. I've worked with many Latinos very good. I have worked with Penelope ( Cruz ) but not with her ​​husband, Javier Bardem . I love to work with him, is one of the best actors in the world.

    If you could repeat who would you choose?
    Diego, Penelope, Salma ( Hayek ). It's hard to choose because I'm a fan of all of them. Diego is director too, so I'd like to direct. So when I see work I always ask, I think I would put the top of the list ... Diego is a fun guy, we have many things in common: we have small children, it is going to move to Los Angeles and I also , so maybe convince him to give me work."
