You guys, I watched Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 and Elysium last night, and they’re the SAME MOVIE.

So.  I watched 3 movies last night, and 2 of them were the strikingly parallel Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 and Elysium.

Stick with me, here, for a moment. (And also, SPOILERS.)

Ahem.

It is a story about a follicularly distinctive man, whose greatest desire is to land his dream job /  not die a hideous death from radiation poisoning.

In order to achieve his goal, our hero must embark on a dangerous mission to a beautiful place … FoodAnimalJungle 2013-08-09-elysium_interior_concept_art

with a technical MacGuffin in tow.

Our hero has a ragtag group of allies, and a love interest with an adorable daughter / strawberry. This daughter / strawberry’s life is threatened by the evil corporation / government.

The evil corporation / government has robots. Big, scary, strong robots to do their bidding.

The only way to take on these robots is to become somewhat of a robot yourself.

Meanwhile, our hero and his friends are dogged by a violent and unpredictable Sharlto Copley / fast food staple.

There is a president who is eventually betrayed by his right hand woman: Jodie Foster / an orangutan named Barb.

However, our hero’s priorities are muddled, and eventually he realizes that his own goal isn’t as important as the future of humankind / sentient produce and friendship.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd SCENE.

Oh, and the third movie I watched was Philomena. I’m still working on how to tie it in with the other two films. All I’ve got so far is that the evil nuns = killer robots.
