    My pre-existing anti-robit stance notwithstanding:
    As a movie, this is fine. Stuffed with concepts that are familiar to the point of redundancy if you've read or watched, like, any science fiction. Also seems to be alarmingly okay with the idea of humanity embracing its extinction because we're actually pretty mean, and the robots might be nicer!
    As a visual spectacle, though, oh... it's a stunner. Incredible VFX work and gorgeous location photography, all done on what I understand is less…

    I know the idea of a farting NeoFutureFurby that you need an iPad to actually play with is supposed to be satire, but let's not kid ourselves -- it'll be on the shelves by Christmas.

    My first "Twitter watch-along" experience. Don't know how I feel about that whole enterprise, but I know how I feel about this movie: it rules. Fun, engaging characters, somewhat uncomfortable explorations of trauma, and a (pun intended) barn burner of a final act that gives me chills every time Judy Greer says, "Gotcha."

    An extra half-star for the goofy faces Palpatine makes during his lightsaber fights.
