    A lot of your thoughts echoe my own, though I had to commend him for having so many relevant social/political themes. They are just pulled off reeeeeeally clumsily!!

    This part made me laugh: “CHAPPIE is, at its most basic, every bad element in a Blomkamp film amplified to its extreme” hehehe, and what you said about that goddamn rap group is spot on too. Why?!?! Good God they were terrible

    “a strong visionary does not a strong storyteller make” kinda sums up what I think of Blomkamp. I didn’t mind D-9 but really disliked Elysium, and Chappie just continues the human-are-shitty theme right where elysium left off. Bleh, I’m feeling 50 was too much for me to give after reading this, there really are, like you say, some awfully cringe-inducing moments. Especially when that annoying blond from Die Antwoord opened her mouth!!

    Great write up mate 🙂 At least the movie is stirring up some discussion, even if it is almost universally terrible.
