Space Brains – Podcast

Space Brains is a fortnightly podcast that discusses what is good and what is great about science fiction movies.
Hosts Surrey Hughes and Mark Regan love science fiction films and aim to share that love with the audience. This is not a show that dishes dirt or talks to a negative point.
 
‘Science-brain’ Surrey, is a published author and IT professional. ‘Cinema-brain’ Mark, is a filmmaker and media teacher. Together they share the science and cinematic elements of each movie they review.
 
The podcast explores classic, recent, blockbuster and cult films. The hosts occasionally interview special guests such as Hamad AlSarraf who wrote and directed “In Paradox” and Luke Sparke, writer/director of “Occupation” and “Occupation: Rainfall”.
 
The space brains are from a wondrous and heart-warming part of the galaxy and hence they joy-watch. This means when they watch science fiction films, they deliberately look for the positives and try to get the most from the experience they can.
 
Space Brains began in 2019. All episodes are recorded, edited and published in Mandurah, Western Australia.

Episode – 82 – Elysium

Elysium

Elysium is a 2013 American dystopian science fiction action film written, produced and directed by Neill Blomkamp. It stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Alice Braga, and Sharlto Copley. The film takes place on both a ravaged Earth and a luxurious artificial world called Elysium.

Back to Blomkamp again. This time we talk about his vision of a world divided by a massive wealth gap, both figuratively and literally. We discuss juxtaposition, lighting and samurai themes before diving into the world of ring worlds.
