Jupiter Ascending 2015

Buy Jupiter Ascending

Space opera. Reminds me of Dune.

shallow, 1D characters. Fantastic special effects. Lovely. Watch for nothing but the visual effects, the alien spaceships and landscapes, the elaborate space ritual fashion haute couture costumes. Strange concocted characters.

Final Fantasy the Spirit Within 88ba0
Final Fantasy the Spirit Within

Final Fantasy, the Spirit Within Final Fantasy, the Spirit Within • Though this one has not received rave reviews, but i personally loved it. Imagine, this movies is produced entirely by computers, sans models even. Sometimes in the foreseeable future we'll have movies generated by computer that is indistinguishable from real-life recordings.

Love Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss). Athletic, demure, calm, love lorn, good hearted. A bit under powered, but that's ok. Subsequent Matrix films are crap. I despise those computer programers who's chattering red-pill blue-pill everywhere. idiots.

“The singular burden of solitude spares no one, not even great minds” —City of Lost Children

City of Lost Children City of Lost Children •I love the little girl Miette (Judith Vittet)• “Sincerity always wins.”• Comment: fantasy, fairy tale, surreal, gloomy. There are a bunch of queer characters, some are extremely sad. Irvin suffers from chronic migraine, and Irvin is a brain living in a fish tank. Krank, who are of a supreme mind but he is incapable of dreaming. He steals dreams from children but obtains only nightmares.

this is like playing a video game, where, when stuck at a level, you repeat, and must from the start. You get better and better, but need to get pass that level. Secret tip: get some sleep.

great brainless fun

it's funny that silly giant monsters of 1970 Japan era (Ultraman ウルトラマン) can be made into such a fun movie today. In those days, i as a child am crazy about the Ultraman. We used to collect the cards, each has a spec about a monster. You can web search image for “Ultraman monsters”.
