Ugh, really hits the spot in terms of creepiness... Love it! :S

Shame how Aaron Beck's awesome touch was wasted on Elysium, so cool to see it get another moment in the limelight. Hey, thanks for posting.

Elysium wasn't as good as District 9, but it was still a good sci-fi movie, far better than most of them. I certainly can't think of anything better for this guy's work to be in. I would assume he's going to be working on Chappie as well.

Elysiums setting and visuals were amazing, but in terms of story it had the nutritional value of a slice of white bread.

I think you're suffering the same Disappointment 9 syndrome that most people are. Was it District 9 quality? No. It was still a far better story than in the vast majority of recent sci-fi, and it was a way better story than the previews were indicating. It's not something I'll watch as regularly as District 9, but I'll give it another view.

But we can definitely agree that the visuals were awesome, and this guy's work is amazing. I'd like to see more.

Is that a trailer or the film itself?

I'll give it another view for the amazingly well directed action and sound design. The weapons sound and look awesome. It has some serious issues on the plot department, but the film was jolly good fun :D

I assume that's the film itself. The guy is an animator/artist, not a director or producer. Then again, so was Neill Blomkamp!
