Quotation Of The Day: Movie Directors Should Listen To Darth Vader Edition

Remember when Darth Vader said, "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed.

Directors apparantly have't listened:
Like District 9Elysium takes on contemporary problems of economic and social injustice—this time not racial prejudice but the vast worldwide gulf between haves and have-nots. But after taking some pains to imagine and present a mid-22nd-century world that’s a plausibly grim extrapolation of the one we live in, Blomkamp proceeds to spend the last two-thirds of his film crashing spaceships into lawns, or staging high-tech fistfights between Elysium’s stolid hero and his even duller arch-nemesis. It’s a waste of a perfectly good dystopia.

The best news I have heard about Star Wars is that the next episode will be going back to some of the basics.

"Star Wars Episode VII producer Kathleen Kennedy has suggested that JJ Abrams’ sequel will see a return to more practical effects, blending them with CGI in an attempt to recapture the magic of the original movies."
