**1/2 (out of four) At the end of a memorable “Simpsons” episode about ordinary people being overseen by a powerful organization, Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire asks, “Do you want to know the terrifying truth, or do you want to see me sock a few dingers?” The crowd, of course, chooses dingers. That's sort of the approach that writer-director Neill Blomkamp takes with “Elysium.” The sci-fi/action flick's topicality exists primarily as an illusion, as if viewers only want a superficial connection to social issues and are then happy to move on to eye-popping stuff like Max (Matt Damon)

When I attended the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) this past Spring, I met Chicago-based writer Michael Mendheim . He was at the show promoting his new graphic novel series "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" , an action/fantasy series that is published under the iconic Heavy Metal banner. "The Four Horsemen" tells the story of Adam Cahill, a gritty action hero chosen by fate to stave off the end of the world. First conceived as a video game, Mendheim fought to bring the story to the medium of graphic novels.

Another week, another chance to share a genre of music you may (or most likely, may not) be into. This week, we're diving into a steaming Jager-bomb fueled pile of nu-metal. With nu-metal pioneers Korn in town at the Congress tonight, and the reveal that Limp Bizkit signed to Cash Money (they really DID take over for the '99 AND the 2000, didn't they?) , we felt it was only proper to showcase the best of a genre that Trevor Baker of the Guardian summed up as  "...l oud, angry and vivid as a bruise.

Over the years, he's pissed off Yelp reviewers, argued with critics and can be brutally honest as a judge on "MasterChef. " Naturally, his food speaks just as loudly. At his first restaurant, Graham Elliot in River North, he captivated the city with his truffle popcorn and other fine-dining riffs on American classics.
