I'm pumped up for this one. Brought to you by Director Neill Blomkamp, the man behind the awesome District 9.

Saw it.  Dug it.  It was more cyberpunk than I had anticipated, but in a good way (and can I say that I love that the computer interfaces look almost old-fashioned).  While (spoiler alert) we don't spend too much time on the big E, that was the type of design style I had been hoping the reboot of Star Trek would have embraced, it was almost retro sleek without feeling old-fashioned, you know?  I probably should do some doodling of my own now.

Well ok then. The cyberpunk is news to me. In a good way. Love that stuff.

I had read they don't spend much time on Elysium. Maybe in pt. 2?

I would love to see more on Elysium, but when you get down (up?) to it, it's really just Bel Air on a big bike wheel with tunnels underneath.  Earth is actually much more futuristic, just less sleek.

The cyberpunk thing was such a welcome change of pace, and can I say that I love when computers in the future in film actually look kind of old, they look like sleek HD version of 1990s software interfaces, complete with a text font that looks even older (80s! ... I have no idea what the typeface is called) and even code and MS-DOS style start-up screens.
