Re: Elysium - grade/review and spoilers - also controversy

When are conservatives not whining about Hollywood or crapping their pants about some imaginary red threat?

This is a common theme throughout sci-fi anyway, a number of dystopic books and films centre around the idea of capitalism and wealth disparity spinning out of control. Just from last year the Total Recall remake had a very similar setup where the rich all live in Great Britain, and the poor people have all been exiled to Australia and spend their time working to support the rich.

It's hardly an unimaginable concept. I mean just take right now, for example.
