You could try shooting Ronald Reagan's corpse.

Be happy to. Now what's this about Jodie Foster?


he simply said shooting. There is no "load into" in the sentence.

Dude, that's why I don't watch trailers.  Avoid the hype.

I learned that after seeing the trailer for What Lies Beneath. Christ, that was like a trailer for 6th Sense that starts with "and he's a ghost."

Has it ever occurred to you that some people haven't actually seen/read some things?  Or are you just an asshole?


I am not just an asshole. I am a REMARKABLE asshole.

Well said, but I thought his post was weak bait. It was a long walk for a Stuck on You slam I'll give you that, but that movie just isn't referenced enough I think.

B.L.Z. Bub: In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on Elysium, a massive high-tech utopian metropolis located in the skies above earth that is free of crime, war, poverty, hunger, and diseases, while everyone else lives on an overpopulated, ruined Earth below.

Sounds like a metaphor for how Hollywood views its place in America: the pinnacle of cultural enlightenment towering above a sea of dirty unwashed masses. Every once in a while they glance down and pity us, hence this movie. I don't need their pity.

And speaking of class warfare, isn't Matt Damon worth like tens of millions of dollars? Why do you need all that money, Matt? Why you gotta be a greedy 1%-er? Are you gonna claim you're morally superior because you gave away a few crumbs of your massive fortune? Why don't you give it all away and come live amongst us little people, you farking hypocrite?

You wanna see it? All right.

Class warfare is about people in the top 1% who have all the money you'll never see in your life doing everything they can to make the government make their lives easier, even if that comes at the expense of people like you.

Class warfare is cutting food stamps and taxes on big business and the richest amongst us who have had the lowest tax bill in 50 years.

Class warfare is saying letting people die without health insurance because they can't afford it is ok.

Class warfare is saying that people like you and me who work three different jobs hoping to just make it to the next payday aren't worth anything because we don't have the capital to invest in stocks that you already have the inside scoop on because the lobbyists you hired to write the tax code/regulations/red tape are also talking with the former aides of congressmen & senators and have given them (and thus to you) all the inside info they have about the companies and competition you helped them write laws about.

Matt Damon vigorously defends the "common man" like you and me all the time in interviews and various causes he supports through donations and organization of events. He's one of our generation's most strident liberal voices and hasn't ever compromised his principles to make a buck.

Well, except for maybe Stuck on You.

Whatever Matt Damon is doing, Elysium is far from class warfare. Just another good summer movie with an interesting message about what might happen if we let things keep being shiatty and allow morons like you stay blind to the fact that when you say dumb shiat like that you're not fighting in the class war for guys like you and me, you're fighting for the 1%.

That's only the first 45 minutes of the movie. The next 30 minutes deal with the revelation of all technology are offshoot of Prawn tech, all of whom were executed in 2032. The last 20 minutes is the Prawn invasion and Matt Damon trying to Prawnize himself to become a hybrid so he can become an in-betweener to stop the Prawn-Human war. Ironically, the humans ravage the surface of Earth with multiple nuke launches, and in the end, the Human survivors and the peaceful faction of the Prawns live together in squalor on Elysium with their technology and manufacturing capability severely diminished .

How can I take Matt Damon seriously, now that I have seen his quivering buttocks in "Behind the Candelabra"?
