been almost 1 year sice i update this blog. today i come back and start blogging again. oke guys for my first sharing since long time ago is Elysisum. oke guyes cek it out.
In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on Elysium, a Stanford torus high-tech space station governed by President Patel (Faran Tahir), in a utopian setting which includes access to private medical machines that offer instant cures, while everyone else lives below on the overpopulated, disease-ridden, ruined "Third World slum" that Earth has become. Those who maintain Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens' lifestyle, even destroying ships that attempt to get there. After an industrial accident leaves him dying of radiation poisoning, 36-year-old factory-worker and ex-con Max Da Costa (Matt Damon) has only five days to get from Los Angeles to Elysium in order to be cured. Max is fitted with a powerful exoskeleton and attempts to kidnap a rich businessman (William Fichtner) in order to steal his identity and hijack his way into Elysium. This pits him against Elysium's Secretary of Homeland Security Delacourt Rhodes (Jodie Foster) and her violent secret police forces, led by Agent Kruger (Sharlto Copley). A childhood Max has a girl friend Freya who can read. Max lives in an orphanage with a kindly nun. Max wishes someday to go to Elysium, the wheel like space station hanging in the sky above. The nun says he is born to do something great. Adult, Max (Matt Damon) wakes and goes to a bus stop in a favela-like LA. He is roughed up by two police robots who break his arm. At the hospital he meets Freya (Alice Braga) a nurse, after many years apart. Max also has to go the parole office and check in with the automated officer. Arriving late for work he is chewed out by his supervisor. Max works in a robot assembly plant. In a glass booth above the shop floor, Carlyle (William Fichtner) the company owner observes. Three rogue ships fly toward Elysium. Delacourt (Jodie Foster) the Security head, orders them shot down. From earth, her covert ground operative Kruger (Sharlto Copely) launches guided missiles at the shuttles. Two are destroyed but one manages to land. A mother breaks into a mansion and uses the medical pod to cure her child. However, everyone is arrested. Later Delacourt is brought before the President and his cabinet, they are dismayed by the use of extreme force. As well, Kruger is discharged from service. Delacourt angrily claims the methods are needed to save their way of life. The next day Max goes to work again, a friend Julio (Diego Luna) tries to get him to return to criminal activities, Max wants to go straight. At work all is normal until the machine he operates jams. The supervisor orders him to go inside, Max hesitates but enters. Suddenly the door closes on him and the machine irradiates Max. He is saved but a med robot declares he has five days to live, has Max sign a release and gives him some painkillers. Carlyle orders Max removed. Stumbling home Max meets Julio and says he has to get to Elysium, he will do whatever for Spider. They go to a high tech rebel command centre led by Spider (Wagner Moura). They agree Max has to download info from a rich guy's brain implant as payment. Also, in his weakened state, the techs screw a 3rd Generation exoskeleton to Max and attach an implant device to his skull. Delacourt meets secretly with Carlyle and plans a coup in return for 200 years arms contract. Carlyle has the main computer security program. The next day Max, Julio and two other rebels approach Carlyle's compound, he has just uploaded a modified security program to his implant with a death code safety lock. Max hits the flying Bugatti with a small bomb and it crashes a short distance away. Max and his gang give chase and fight Carlyle's two guard robots. Meanwhile Delacourt sees what is going on and orders Kruger back to service, he is picked up by an assault craft and they arrive at the battle. Max gets used to his skeleton and weapons but Carlyle is mortally wounded in the crossfire, the rebels just manage to download the implant before Kruger arrives firing. Max is the only survivor and manages to escape, although badly wounded. He finds his way to the hospital and calls out to Freya as she is ready to go home. Freya takes Max and her daughter home. Kruger and his assault team launch probes to search for Max and Delacourt shuts down LA airspace. Freya stitches up Max and he gets a good sleep. In the morning Max goes to leave, Freya needs help for her daughter, who has a disease. Max says he cannot help and leaves. A probe spots him right away and Kruger flied toward him. Max knocks the probe out with a rock and escapes to Spider's HQ. Kruger arrives at Freya's and takes her and the girl prisoner. Spider plugs into Max's implant to study what is there, he sees it is the master program for Elysium security. They realize how important it is. Max realizes he can trade it for his cure and leaves, he is out in the open and Kruger lands close by. Max has a grenade and threatens to blow his head off unless he is taken to Elysium. Kruger readily agrees and Max comes aboard. As the assault craft leaves for space Delacourt reopens LA airspace. Spider and a group board a rebel shuttle and follow. Kruger's craft enters the space station inner orbit. One of the soldiers taunts Max and a fight breaks out, the grenade goes off injuring Kruger and the shuttle crash lands. Max, Freya and the daughter are taken prisoner. Spider and a small group land nearby and go towards Max. Delacourt takes the chance to tell the President as an act of war she is in charge. Max is plugged in and Delacourt's techs begin the upload. Delacourt goes to the armoury where Kruger has just received a new skin grafted face. She reams him out for the crash landing, but Kruger suddenly stabs her in the neck with a piece of broken glass. The soldiers throw her into the same locked room as Freya. The nurse attempts to help Delacourt but it is too late, she dies. Kruger has now put on a exoskeleton also and he and his two men leave to look for Max. They also toss grenades and create havoc in the Elysium command centre. Max recovers and breaks free of his restraints and the upload. He makes his way to the armoury and finds Freya. He fights off one of Kruger's men and sends Freya and the girl up an elevator, telling them to find a med pod. He says he will be right behind. Max then meets up with Spider and they head for the computer lab. Kruger attacks and kills some of the rebels. In a desperate fight on a high catwalk Max finally defeats the crazed Kruger, but again is badly wounded. Spider and Max manage to start the upload, at the end they realize Max will die from the death code. Max calls Freya and sadly says goodbye. He presses the final key and slumps, dead. Spider modifies the citizen protocols to make everyone on Earth an Elysiumite. Freya's daughter is cured of leukaemia and the guard robots refuse to obey orders. The master computer sends a fleet of medical shuttles with pods down to earth to start curing people.

Wrath of the Titans

Wrath of the Titans is an upcoming 2012 fantasy film and sequel to the 2010 film Clash of the Titans. The film stars Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Édgar Ramírez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell and Rosamund Pike with Jonathan Liebesman directing a screenplay by Dan Mazeau & David Leslie Johnson. The film is scheduled for a March 30, 2012 release in 3D and IMAX 3D


A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year-old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans led by Kronos: father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus (Liam Neeson), Hades (Ralph Fiennes), and Poseidon (Danny Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld.

Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades and Ares (Édgar Ramírez) make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans' strength grows as Zeus's remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon's demigod son Agenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.

Rosamund Pike as Andromeda, the princess whose life Perseus once saved, and who now, as a queen, follows Perseus into battle.


Talks of a sequel to Clash of the Titans began as early as March 2010. Tamer Hassan, who played Ares in the first film, stated at the film's world premiere that, "They want this one to do well so they can go ahead with the sequel, Return of the Gods". In April 2010 it was reported that director Louis Leterrier will not return to direct, but will be an executive producer on the second installment. The report also stated that Sam Worthington is on-board and that Greg Berlanti will write the story.

In June 2010, Warner Bros. hired scribes David Leslie Johnson and Dan Mazeau to pen the screenplay with Basil Iwanyk returning as producer and rather than being converted to 3D, the sequel will be shot in 3D. In August 2010, the The Hollywood Reporter reported that Jonathan Liebesman had signed a deal to direct the sequel.

In September 2010, director Jonathan Liebesman confirmed that Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson would be returning. In December 2010 Neeson revealed that the film would be titled, Wrath of the Titans and that filming is expected to begin next March.

In January 2011, it was reported that Édgar Ramírez and Toby Kebbell were in negotiations to play Ares and Agenor respectively. It was also reported that Bill Nighy was being courted to play Hephaestus. Additionally Hayley Atwell was on the shortlist of actresses screen testing for the role of Andromeda. Other actresses being considered for Andromeda included Georgina Haig, Janet Montgomery, Dominique McElligott and Clémence Poésy. In February 2011 it was reported that Rosamund Pike was near a deal for the part.

Principal photography began on March 23, 2011. Filming took place in studios outside London and later shot on location in Surrey, South Wales and in the Canary Islands on the island of Tenerife.


In November 2011, Warner Bros. hired Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote Wrath of the Titans, to develop and write a treatment for a third installment

The Raid: Redemption

The Raid: Redemption or Serbuan Maut is an Indonesian martial arts action film directed by Gareth Evans and starring Iko Uwais which is set for a 2012 release. This is the second collaboration of Evans and Uwais after their first action film, Merantau released in 2009. Both films showcase the traditional Indonesian martial art Pencak Silat. The fight choreographers of The Raid are Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian who also worked on Merantau. The US release of the film features music by Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Joseph Trapanese.

After its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), critics and audience alike hailed The Raid as one of the best action films in years


Deep in the heart of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable derelict apartment building which became a safe house for the world's most dangerous killers and gangsters. The rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite team is tasked with raiding the building in order to take down the notorious drug lord who runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building's lights are cut off and all exits are blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city's worst criminals to survive their mission.

21 Jump Street

21 Jump Street is a 2012 American action comedy film loosely based on the TV series of the same name by Stephen J. Cannell. The film stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. It was written by Hill and Michael Bacall and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller


Morton Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Greg Jenko (Channing Tatum) are former classmates who meet again at police academy. Schmidt was a smart misfit while Jenko was a dim-witted jock. They end up becoming friends at the academy as they help with each others' weaknesses. They graduate together as partners, but are assigned to park patrol. They catch a break when they spot a group of drug dealers and arrest their leader Domingo (DeRay Davis). However, the department is forced to release him as Jenko forgot to read the Miranda rights. The two are reassigned to a revived specialty division on 21 Jump Street.

They are introduced to Captain Dickson (Ice Cube), who explains the division specializes in infiltrating high schools and that they were chosen because of their youthful appearances. Schmidt and Jenko are assigned to go back to their old high school to stop a new synthetic drug from spreading to other campuses by finding the supplier. They go undercover as brothers, living at Schmidt's parents' house, and see that their high school has changed. Jenko accidentally switches their identities and they get each others' classes. They learn the lead dealer of the drug is the popular Eric (Dave Franco), but he is not the supplier.

Schmidt manages to fit in with the popular kids and takes a romantic interest in Eric's friend Molly (Brie Larson), while Jenko becomes friends with the misfits in his AP Chemistry class while his teacher Ms. Griggs (Ellie Kemper) takes a sexual interest in him. Jenko discovers that his new friends secretly tap into other people's cell phones to listen into their conversations. Schmidt decides to throw a party at his house to gain Eric's complete trust and Jenko takes the opportunity to tap into Eric's phone. Despite Captain Dickson ordering them not to serve alcohol and drugs to minors, they nevertheless buy alcohol and steal confiscated marijuana. When Eric arrives with Molly and his other friends, Jenko steals Eric's phone for his friends to tap into while Schmidt fights off a rival of Eric's and earns Eric's trust.

Schmidt now pretends to sell the drug for Eric but is actually giving it to Captain Dickson to be confiscated. While at Eric's house, Schmidt asks Molly out to prom while Jenko listens through Eric's phone. He also insults Jenko to Eric with Jenko listening. Schmidt and Jenko learn that Eric is making a deal soon. When Jenko spots Eric leaving school, he takes Schmidt to follow him. They see that Eric is dealing with Domingo and his gang and they follow them, but are forced to run away when Domingo spots them. Back at school, Jenko accuses Schmidt of his earlier insults, possibly ruining the case, and getting in too deep, but Schmidt brushes him off. Jenko and Schmidt get into a fight that results in them getting expelled and fired from Jump Street.

Later that night, both are confronted by Eric and his friends, who want to bring them on as security after hearing about what happened with Domingo. He tells them about a deal with Domingo happening during prom where they get to meet the supplier. At prom, they are surprised to see that the supplier is their gym teacher Mr. Walters (Rob Riggle). When Domingo and his gang arrive, he recognizes Schmidt and Jenko as police officers, and tells two of his men to kill them. However, the two men reveal themselves as DEA Agents Tom Hanson (Johnny Depp) and Doug Penhall (Peter DeLuise), who were a part of the Jump Street program when it began. However, they get into an argument which gives Domingo the opportunity to kill them. A gunfight ensues between Schmidt and Jenko, Mr. Walters, and Domingo and his crew. Mr. Walters and Eric escape in a limo with Molly as a hostage, with Domingo and his crew in pursuit of them in another limo. Schmidt and Jenko pursue all of them in another limo where Jenko creates a homemade chemical bomb from his knowledge in AP Chemistry to kill Domingo and his crew. They then confront Mr. Walters, who shoots Jenko, and Schmidt ends up shooting him. They successfully arrest him and Eric and make amends with each other, while Schmidt makes amends with Molly. They are rehired into Jump Street where Dickson gives them a new assignment in a college setting.

In May 2008, Columbia Pictures confirmed that a film version of the series was under development. Jonah Hill rewrote an existing script by screenwriter Joe Gazzam and executive produced the film, as well as starred in the film. Johnny Depp confirmed in an interview for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides that his cameo had already been filmed. Hill has said he wanted horror director Rob Zombie to direct the picture. In May 2009, Hill described the film adaptation as being a "R-rated, insane, Bad Boys-meets-John Hughes-type movie".  On December 21, 2009, it was announced that Columbia Pictures were in talks with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directing duo, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, to direct the film. Channing Tatum starred alongside Hill in the film adaptation. Dave Franco also won a role in the film, and so has Dakota Johnson.


The premiere of 21 Jump Street took place on March 13, 2012, at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California. The film opened in a wide release in theaters on March 16, 2012.

Critical reception

Early reviews of the film had been strongly positive. Based on 145 reviews collected by Rotten Tomatoes, the film currently holds an 87% approval rating from critics, with an average score of 7.2/10. The consensus states: "A smart, affectionate satire of '80s nostalgia and teen movie tropes, 21 Jump Street offers rowdy mainstream comedy with a surprisingly satisfying bite."

Box Office

On its opening day/night ( Friday March 16 2012), the film topped the box office. It grossed $13 million.


On March 17, 2012, Sony Pictures announced that it was pursuing a sequel to the film, signing a deal that would see Hill and Bacall return to write a script treatment that would be again developed by Bacall. Hill and Tatum are expected to return to star in, and executive produce the film, alongside producer Neal H. Moritz.
