I generally dislike Snyder. If I remember correctly the Dawn of the Dead remake was his first major film and I fucking loved it so hard. Then he's really done nothing but graphic-novel shit I couldn't care less about.
Basically agree about Elysium and that Three Kings is awesome. It might even be my favourite war film and just generally one of my favourite films.
I took a break from watching this year's Oscar contenders to watch last year's Best Picture, Argo. I don't really have anything to say about it other than it was solid. And it's weird but quite amusing how so many people refuse to take Ben Affleck seriously no matter what he does.
“Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” – Bill Hicks
