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.)
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.
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.
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.
